We studied 25 duodenal ulcer patients and 14 age- and sex-matched normal controls to determine whether gastric acid secretion in duodenal ulcer patients is abnormally sensitive to stimulation by gastrin endogenously released in response to meals. Acid response to saline and to 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, and 8.0% peptone infused into the stomach was measured by 30 min intragastric titration. Total serum gastrin (G-total) and serum heptadecapeptide gastrin (G17), fasting and 30 min after each test meal, were measured by specific radioimmunoassays. In 19 ulcer patients and 11 normal subjects (controls), acid response to graded doses (11, 33, 100, and 300 pmol kg−1 h−1) of G17-I were also measured.

Usage data is cumulative from June 2022 through June 2023.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
