The results of studies on the nocturnal gastric secretion of normal individuals and of patients with duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer and gastric carcinoma have been summarized in a previous publication.1 Although the number of patients with gastric ulcer in the original series was small, the data were sufficiently constant to indicate certain trends. The series now has been increased sufficiently to permit definite conclusions. The purpose of this paper is to describe in detail the periodicity and variability of the nocturnal gastric secretion in such patients and to compare them with normal subjects and patients with duodenal ulcer.
