INTRODUCTION  Formerly the only method of studying the secretion of the pancreas was by means of a temporary or permanent fistula. Lately one of us (Einhorn1) has described a practical method of obtaining the duodenal contents in man, which makes the duodenal contents accessible for analysis.It appears to us of importance to investigate a few of the problems with regard to pancreatic secretion in man and to compare our results with those previously obtained by the methods mentioned above.The present paper deals with the influence of various foods and drugs on the duodenal contents (bile, pancreatic secretion and duodenal juice) and also presents some data of chemical interest regarding the secretion. Attention was paid to the quantity of secretion obtained and to its different qualities.
