Suppression of gastric acid secretion by furosemide in isolated gastric mucosa of guinea pig

The effect of furosemide on acid secretion and Cl- transport was studied in isolated fundic mucosa of the guinea pig. Furosemide (10(-3) M), applied to the serosal side produced an immediate effect on the short-circuit current (Isc), lowering it by 47 +/- 2%. Potential difference decreased by 29 +/- 3%, electrical conductance by 18 +/- 4%, acid secretion by 38 +/- 1%, and net flux of Cl- from serosal-to-mucosal side by 37%. Application of the drug to the mucosal side produced similar effects on acid secretion and on the electrical parameters. It is suggested that furosemide blocks the entrance of Cl-, by the Na+--Cl- cotransport mechanism, through the basolateral membrane of the secreting cell. The consequent reduction in electrogenic Cl- transport would cause Isc and acid secretion to decrease. A reduction of Cl- conductance of the apical membrane, upon mucosal application of the drug, would cause similar effects on acid secretion and Cl- transport.

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.
