Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The infusion of a 4% solution of urea indogs induces a significant increase in totalgastric chloride and the concentration ofchloride in gastric secretions. Volume andtotal titratable acidity also increase. Thesechanges resemble those provoked by injection of histamine. Uremia produced bynephrectomy produces no predictable patternof change in gastric secretion.
