The electrophoresis of human gastric juice

Part III In pernicious anaemia patients


The electrophoretic pattern of the proteins in the gastric juice of patients with pernicious anaemia is compared with the pattern obtained in a group of controls in whom intragastric digestion of proteins has been prevented by intragastric neutralization of the gastric juice.

In patients with pernicious anaemia, band 5, which represents albumin, is increased, and band 4 and band C are decreased. The decrease in band 4 may be related to deficiency of intrinsic factor.
