Secretin, Gastrin and Pancreatic Bicarbonate Responses to Meals Varying in pH Levels
Release of endogenous secretin by duodenal acidification has been shown to occur in man and other species. Ingestion of food has, however, resulted in no consistently detectable increase in plasma secretin levels measured by radioimmunoassay. This study was designed to test the effect of the acidification of a meal on secretin and gastrin levels and on pancreatic bicarbonate and gastric acid secretion.
