Abstract

These results indicate that gastric acidity, as it relates to pH 3 and pH 4 holding times, increases after PPPD and that gastric acidity, per se, may not be involved in ulcer formation in these PPPD patients. Furthermore, the results of the study indicate that measuring gastric acidity for longer periods of time during the day and during the night might be important in studies on acid secretion.
