Immunofluorescence studies of the distribution of gastrin cells in different clinical states

    Examination of human gastric biopsies by an indirect immunofluorescence technique using antihuman gastrin confirms the variability in distribution and number of gastrin-secreting (G) cells (Solcia, Vassallo, and Capella, 1969) observed by morphological, cytochemical, and electron microscopical studies. In cases with presumed secondary hypersecretion a profound degree of G-cell hyperplasia is observed. Immunofluorescence with. antigastrin can provide valuable information on the state of the G cells in different physiological states, particularly if used in conjunction with other cytochemical techniques.
