ABSTRACT:
The experiment was performed on 10 Black Suffolk sheep of 59±8 kg BW. The animals were equipped with two catheters in common bile duct and one in duodenum and set of three bipolar electrodes sutured on the duodenum. In accordance to duodenal electromyography activity, effect of exogenous leptin on pancreatic juice secretion was studied. Administration of leptin (2-10 μg kg-1 BW intravenously) did not affect the volume, protein, amylase and bicarbonates output in pancreatic juice. In conclusion, the results suggest, that in the doses used, leptin have no effect on pancreatic secretion.
