Peptic Ulcer

J. Drummond

Abstract


In 1936 Selye1 in describing the findings in animals submitted to physical and toxic stress stated inter alia: 'Gastro-intestinal 'ulcers and other manifestations of shock were actually more severe in adrenalectomised than in intact animals and could be lessened by treatment with cortical extracts. These lesions are not mediated through the adrenal; in fact they are actually combated. by an adequate adrenacortical response to stressor agents.'
