Radioimmunoassay of plasma gastrin has shown that a hypergastrinaemia occurs in yearling sheep, after infection with 10(6) infective third stage larvae of Haemonchus contortus. Plasma gastrin concentrations began to rise two to four days after infection, that is, at about the same time as, or slightly before, the abomasal pH was observed to increase.
