Abstract

In the study, identified were the cells binding on biotinylated gastrin analog as eosipophils, part of the body's defenses against invading microorganisms. The staining is presumed to result from a product of eosinophil degranulation, binding in the analog, adhering to the parietal cells. It is significant to note then that easinophils might play an intermediary role in normal and/or pathological gastric acid secretion.
