The double thermistor tissue blood flowmeter has been used to measure pancreatic blood flow after injections of secretin, pancreozymin and glucagon. The relationships between pancreatic blood flow and secretions with the factor of secretory rate, bicarbonate and amylase output were estimated.
In conclusion, (1) injections of secretin resulted in an increase in both pancreatic blood flow and secretion in above mentioned three factors in accordance with the doses of secretin. (2) Pancreatic blood flow is correlated closely with pancreatic secretion on injections of above mentioned hormones. It is shown that pancreatic blood flow is influenced not only by secretory rate or bicarbonate output, but also by enzyme output. Furtheremore, it is speculated that a change of pancreatic blood flow is prescribed with a sum of the change of secretory rate or bicarbonate output and that of enzyme output.
