Abstract

The possibility that Campylobacter pylori (CP) in the gastric antrum stimulates gastrin release in duodenal ulcer (DU) disease was examined in 31 patients. The 25 patients with antral colonisation with CP had higher basal and meal-stimulated plasma gastrin concentrations, and higher peak acid output (PAO), than did the 6 without CP in the autumn.
