dc.description.abstractA poster presentation regarding gastric acid control, amylase activity and proton pump inhibitors. Introduction: Proton pump inhibitors increase gastric pH to ensure healing of duodenal and gastric ulcers. However, this increased pH is also the optimal pH for salivary (S-AM) and pancreatic amylase (P-AM) activity in gastric juice. Could a high amylase level in gastric juice explain dyspepsia in patients who fail to respond to standard PPI treatment?. Aims: • To quantify total (AMYL) and pancreatic active amylase present in gastric juice samples. • To correlate any relevant patient and drug history with the gastric amylase activity.en_GB
