The Effect of SPV and Pyloroplasty on Pepsin Secretion in Man

  • W. L. Brückner


Little information is available regarding the influence of the vagus nerves on the gastric secretion of pepsin. This is mainly because hydrochloric acid can be measured easily and more accurately than pepsin. It is generally believed that pepsin secretion is stimulated predominantly by cholinergic impulses [8, 10a].
