Studies presented at DDW® 2013 also highlight patient risks There are significant cost and risk factors associated with two procedures commonly used to diagnose or treat gastrointestinal problems, according to research presented at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW). A study by New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill-Cornell Medical College suggests that more objective testing may substantially reduce the cost and risk of managing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Although...

Findings of a Danish study suggest the use of proton pump inhibitors can produce acid-related symptoms in healthy adults. Proton pump inhibitors are a group of drugs used to cause a pronounced and long-lasting reduction of gastric acid production and are among the most widely selling drugs in the world, Wikipedia said. But results of an eight-week, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial led by Dr. Christina Reimer of Copenhagen University suggests proton pump inhibitors can induce...

U.S. scientists say they've determined both an overabundance and a lack of the hormone gastrin play key rolls in bacterial-induced stomach cancer. More than 50 percent of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter pylori, which is strongly linked to the development of gastric ulcers and stomach cancer, researchers said. Helicobacter infection results in increased expression of gastrin, a hormone that stimulates secretion of gastric acid, However, the role of gastrin in cancer...

A group led by Columbia University Medical Center's Timothy Wang, M.D., has studied the role of Helicobacter infection in the development of stomach cancer and found that the hormone gastrin, which stimulates secretion of gastric acid, plays a key role in the development of Helicobacter-induced stomach cancer, and may have distinct effects on carcinogenesis in different parts of the stomach.More than 50 percent of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter, which causes chronic...

The impact was the birth of a new area of science, "gastrointestinal endocrinology." Initially, surgeons were challenged by the complexity...

Gastric Chief Cell
2012-07-01 18:59:43

The Gastric Chief Cell (peptic cell or gastric zymogenic cell) is a cell found in the stomach that releases pepsinogen, gastric lipase and Chymosin (an enzyme that clots milk). Pepsinogen is only released when the cell is stimulated by a number of factors, including cholinergic activity and increased acidity in the stomach. The gastric chief cell works in conjunction with the parietal cell, which releases gastric acid, converting pepsinogen into pepsin. The term “chief cell” is...
