The gastrointestinal peptide response to food was assessed in 6 healthy subjects following oral administration of 40 mg omeprazole. There was a small but statistically significant increase in basal plasma gastrin six hours after the dose of omeprazole, but the post-prandial plasma gastrin was not significantly increased. There was no significant effect on basal or post-prandial levels of somatostatin, insulin, pancreatic glucagon, enteroglucagon, gastric inhibitory polypeptide, pancreatic polypeptide, motilin, neurotensin, cholecystokinin, secretin, vasoactive intestinal peptide and gastrin-releasing peptide or blood glucose concentration.
