Abstract

Methods for bio-assay of secretin-like humoral agents in both cat and dog are described. Bio-assay of tumour extracts and of plasma from patients with the pancreatic choleraic syndrome are described. The first patient was found to have choleretic and secretinlike activity in an extract of her pancreatic islet cell tumour and gastrin-like activity in her plasma. The second patient was found to have both secretin and gastrin-like activity in her plasma, as well as choleretic activity.
