Effect of hydrochloric acid, pepsin, or taurocholate on bioelectric properties of gastric squamous mucosa in horses

Published: 2002-12-31

Brief content of the article
The authors studied the effect of pH with or without pepsin or taurocholic acid on bioelectric properties of gastric squamous mucosa in horses. Treatment did affect tissue resistance indicating that ulcers are mediated partly by (prolonged) exposure to gastric acids.
Keywords: EGUS; ulcer; gastric disease
