Studies on humans with a new secretogogue meal
Summary and conclusions
The meat extract meal is a more exact and constant meal than any previously reported.
The test does not lend itself readily for use by the average practitioner. It is more the character of a laboratory procedure, and adequate facilities are necessary for its use, together with the assistance of trained technicians.
It gives a great deal more information than any other procedure as to the actual amount of HCl produced by the stomach and the time it is evolved as well as the amount of non acid and acid fluid added to the gastric contents by the stomach wall and duodenal regurgitations.
The secretogogue meal gives absolute figures as to the amount of hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach and eliminates the error produced by other meals which have ability to combine with the hydrochloric acid and produce false values.
A larger series of cases will be attempted before further definite conclusions are arrived at.
