Depression of exocrine pancreatic secretion by collection through duodenoscopic catheters

Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology
O LawaetzH Worning


Two dogs were equipped with gastric and duodenal cannulas permitting quantitative collection of pure pancreatic juice. Two series of experiments were performed: 1) collection through a short catheter, length 35 cm, volume 0.3 ml, and internal diameter 1.0 mm, and 2) collection through a long catheter used for duodenoscopic cannulation in man, length 110 cm, volume 1.7 ml, and internal diameter 1.0 mm at the tip and 1.4 mm in the other part of the catheter. After a basal period of 30 min the secretion was stimulated with secretin in the doses 0.1, 0.5, and 2.0 clinical units/kg/h, each dose being infused over a period of 30 min. With the long catheter the dose-response curve for fluid and bicarbonate was shifted to the right. The basal secretion of fluid was depressed 40%; with increasing secretory rates the depression was less pronounced. No significant depression of the bicarbonate concentration was seen. The protein secretion was insignificantly reduced.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
