Fourth, we performed pentagastrin
(PG) stimulation testing in patients with increased CT concentrations and non-MTC disease (chronic kidney disease) and as well as in MTC patients to define stimulated CT cutoff-values for the 3 assays.
laevigata were confirmed by acid hypersecretion induced by histamine, pentagastrin
7 pg/ml (normal: [less than]100) and did not rise on pentagastrin
A 5-mL blood sample was collected at 0 min and at 1,2,3,5, and 10 min after a single intravenous bolus of pentagastrin
4) Several modifications that may be used to improve this diagnostic yield are premedication with histamine receptor antagonist with or witho ut pentagastrin
, bladder lavage, and nasogastric suctioning.
Lind T, Cederberg C, Ekenved G, Hagland U, Olbe L (1983) Effect of omeprazole -- a gastric proton pump inhibitor -- on pentagastrin
stimulated acid secretion in man.
In clinical practice, a patient with a calcitonin concentration higher than 10 ng/L should undergo a pentagastrin
test to exclude MCT.
12) Exogenous gastrin and pentagastrin
do not appear to affect colonic segmentation, but the actions of the several molecular species of this hormone have not been investigated.
test was also carried out on a child who presented with the clinical signs of MTC at the age of 6 months (persistent diarrhea, calcitonin concentration of 28 ng/L).
Serotonin release into blood after food and pentagastrin
test for CT is the most widely used provocative test for the diagnosis of MTC and for assessment of cure after surgery for MTC in patients with undetectable basal CT concentrations.
Gastric acidity after pentagastrin
stimulation was used either as a continuous variable (pH) or divided into three categories: achlorhydria (0), pH [greater than or equal to] 3 (1), and pH <3 (2).
