oa South African Medical Journal - The physiological aspects of gastric ulcer



Ulceration occurs most frequently in portions of the stomach where acid-secreting cells do not exist, and where movement is most marked; to a less extent in the portion where acid secretion is most intense. A possible contributing cause is the under-production of anti-enzyme at certain points, which, in the case of persistent hyperacidity, may give rise to ulceration.
