In three dogs with denervated Heidenhain pouches, ingestion of cooked beef liver caused increased acid output and gastrin secretion. After antrectomy and gastrojejunal anastomosis, ingestion of the liver did not increase serum gastrin levels throughout the experiment. Acid output, however, although markedly reduced, was elevated over basal levels during the last three hours of the four-hour experiment. Total abdominal vagotomy did not alter gastrin secretion but further inhibited acid output in response to the test meal. These results indicate that in the dog intestinal gastrin is not released in response to a beef liver meal. Acid output postantrectomy, although reduced, does respond to the meal and is further decreased after vagotomy. A hormonal mechanism other than the release of intestinal gastrin is responsible for the intestinal phase of gastric acid secretion.

    In three mongrel dogs with fundic pouches, the effect of a chopped versus a blenderized test meal on gastric acid output and gastrin secretion was investigated. The blenderized test meal caused a greater increase in acid output and gastrin secretion than the chopped test meal.

    In this work we re-examine an existing model of gastric acid secretion. The model is a 2-compartment model of the human stomach accounting for regions where relevant cells (D, G, ECL and parietal cells) and proteins and acid they secrete (somatostatin, gastrin, histamine, and gastric acid,...

    Nine healthy subjects underwent two 24-h studies, either when fed six standard meals by mouth or when fasting. There was no significant difference in the median integrated 24-h intragastric acidity when fed or when fasting, 805 or 801 mmol â‹… h/L, respectively. However, the median...

    Gastric pouches were constructed in 8 dogs; in 4 they were of denervated type and in 4 the innervation was intact. An oesophageal fistula was then prepared in each dog. The acid secretory response to oral, tube and sham feeding was determined before and after denervation of the pyloric antrum....
