Vagal tone on the pancreatic polypeptide cell in duodenal ulcer patients. Correction for maximal and minimal secretory capacity.

It has previously been suggested that pancreatic polypeptide (PP) might serve as an indicator of abdominal vagal tone in duodenal ulcer (DU) patients. In this investigation we have attempted to study the vagal tone on the PP cells by correcting the basal PP concentrations to the insulin-stimulated (maximal) and atropine-suppressed (minimal) PP responses, to… CONTINUE READING
