The endocrine system of the antrum of the resected stomachs in 19 patients with chronic duodenal ulcer was studied. It is established that a clear view of the hormonal system of the stomach can be formed on the basis of studying the histotopograms, or a large number of biopsy specimens of the gastric mucosa. The hormonal cells can be found in the deep portions of the mucosa, as a rule, in the region of the fundus and body of the glands. The ulcer recurrence after vagotomy not always can be related to hyperplasia of the endocrine cells of the gastric antrum.
