Thyrotropin-releasing hormone--CNS action to stimulate gastric acid secretion

Y TachéM Brown


Much physiological and pharmacological evidence has accumulated to suggest that the autonomic nervous system has an important role in the peripheral modulation of gastric secretion, although the neurochemical mediators in the brain which initiate or modulate autonomic input are poorly understood. Recently, the demonstration that some oligopeptides present in mammalian brain act in the central nervous system (CNS) to influence profoundly glucoregulation, thermoregulation, blood pressure, sympathetic outflow, muscular activity of gut and stress-induced gastric haemorrhagic lesions have led us to examine a possible role for some of these endogenous brain oligopeptides as chemical messengers involved in the CNS modulation of gastric secretion. We report here that thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) acts within the CNS to elicit a vagus-dependent stimulation of gastric acid secretion.

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.
