Seasonal variations in the amount and acidity of gastric juice secreted in dogs and in man

  • I. I. Markov


Gastric juice secretion has been investigated in 10 healthy persons with empty stomachs and after a test meal for a period of from one to three years. The results of the experiments point to seasonal variations of gastric secretion and to the acidity of the juice, both in healthy persons and in those suffering from various diseases. It increases in autumn and declines in summer. Gastric secretion has also been studied on 3 dogs with the isolated Pavlov pouch. The secretion to the natural stimuli also exhibited the variability of seasonal secretion (with a maximum in autumn and spring and a minimum in summer). Meteorological conditions are important factors with influence seasonal changes in gastric secretion. Sunshine and the temperature of the environment are of major importance.
