Delayed gastric emptying is often accompanied by some alterations in the gastrointestinal hormone systems of humans and other mammals.
Studies on gastrointestinal hormone and jejunal interdigestive migrating motor complex in patients with or without early dumping syndrome after total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction for early gastric cancer.
In the present study, the effects of an essential oil (EO) extracted from Atractylodes lancea on delayed gastric emptying, gastrointestinal hormone and hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) abnormalities induced by restraint stress in rats were investigated and the mechanism of the EO is also explored.
We also examined whether the EO mediating restraint stress-induced delay of gastric emptying is involved in gastrointestinal hormones.
In the experiments on the effects of EO on gastric emptying, gastrointestinal hormones and CRF in rats subjected to restraint stress, 40 model rats were randomly divided into four groups (n = 10): three EO treatment groups (30, 60, 120 mg [kg.
Gastrointestinal hormones are regulated by the autonomic nervous system, the vagal nerve in particular.
The regulative effects are preformed mainly via inhibition of the release of central CRF and activation of vagal pathway, which are also involved in the release of gastrointestinal hormones such as MTL, GAS and SS.
This upper gastrointestinal dysmotility may be part of a pangastrointestinal abnormality, or it may result from abnormal circulating levels of neuropeptides and/or noncolonic gastrointestinal hormones.
Results were presented on the effects of EndoBarrier on two gastrointestinal hormones, gut peptides glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and peptide YY (PYY), and other diabetes measures.
