Abstract

Summary

Exocrine pancreatic physiology has been actively investigated in Japan during the past 30 years. We selected three areas and reviewed them for this article. The selected areas are perfusion of the isolated pancreas, cholecystokinin (CCK)-releasing factor from pancreatic juice (monitor peptide), and genetically diabetic rats. The aim of this article is to present a brief overview of the selected areas of exocrine pancreatic physiology in Japan so that future research can be productively directed.
