The recorded opinion about gastric secretory capacity in chronic pancreatitis is discordant and controversial. In twenty patients with chronic alcoholic pancreatitis and in twenty healthy controls the gastric secretion status was evaluated by means of a radioimmunoassay technique for serum pepsinogen I (PG I), an efficacious and simple test for the study of gastric function. The mean ± SD of basal serum PG I levels in patients with chronic pancreatitis was lower than control subjects (17,6 versus 44,9). This difference was significant (p
