In order to gain an insight into the complex interactions and interdependancies between endocrine and exocrine glands, between incretory and excretory cells of the pancreas, and gut and endo­crine hormones, we undertook to study the effects of subcutaneous pentagastrin on blood, sugar, serum amylase, lipase and calcium in 15 normal control and 50 radiologically proved duodenal ulcer subjects. After subcutaneous pentagastrin, there was no change in one hour, in the values of serum calcium, amylase, lipase, and blood sugar, in both normal control and duodenal ulcer subjects. Since it did not produce any significant change in serum calcium levels, it seems that the stimulatory effects o f pentagastrin may not necessarily be due to changes in serum calcium levels.
