Does vagotomy affect the growth of the pancreas in the rat?

Abstract

Vagotomy has been claimed to have a growth-promoting effect on the pancreas in the rat. The present study failed to show differences in total or relative pancreatic weight and DNA content between vagally intact and vagally denervated rats, whether normoCCKemic or hyperCCKemic after pancreaticobiliary diversion during 2-8 weeks. Contrary to the claims made in several recent reports, vagotomy does not seem to influence the growth of the rat pancreas.
