Twenty-four patients with progressive systemic sclerosis (19 female and 5 male) between the ages of 21 and 56, had their gastric secretory pattern under basal conditions and after Histalog stimulation (1.7 mg./kg. body weight) compared with those of 20 healthy, normal people (control group). No difference was observed in the gastric secretory pattern of both groups.
