The role of the antrum in determining the acid secretory response to meals to different consistency.
  1. D R Hunt,

    Three dogs with denervated pouches of stomach were tested with two test meals, one of homogenized and the other of minced meat, before and after antral denervation. The results show that the preparation of food plays an important part in the acid response and that homogenization augments acid stimulatory potential, probably by virtue of increased buffer capacity.
