Concentration of gastric-juice proteins in a patient with Menetrier's disease
- 17 Downloads
In a case of Menetrier's disease with hypoproteinemia the gastric-juice protein concentrations (Lowry) were 8.0 and 8.4 mg./ml., more than 4 times the values found in normal, hyper-, and and achlothydric patients.
Starch-block electrophoresis showed globulin peaks as well as an albumin peak resembling the distribution seen in normals. The finding of a high concentration of protein in gastric juice appears to be characteristic of hypoproteinemia associated with Menetrier's disease.
