Abstract: As shown by means of radioimmunoassay high amounts of immunoreactive insulin were first to be found in gastric juice of both healthy persons and the patients with duodenal ulcer. Content of insulin in gastric juice was 3-fold as high as in blood serum. Atropine decreased slightly the insulin content in gastric juice, whereas histamine did not affect its concentration. Estimation of insulin in gastric juice is of importance to elucidate the dependence on its hypersecretion observed in duodenal ulcer as well as to ascertain the insulin role in formation of the gastric juice main components.
