Inhibitory effect of a cholecystokinin antagonist on pancreatic carcinogenesis after pancreatobiliary diversion.
The role of cholecystokinin (CCK) has been explored in pancreatic carcinogenesis following pancreatobiliary diversion (PBD), using the specific CCK receptor antagonist CR-1409. Male Wistar rats (n = 80) weighing 70-100 g were given weekly i.p. injections of azaserine (30 mg kg-1 week-1) for 3 consecutive weeks. One week later animals were randomised to receive either PBD or sham PBD and thereafter to receive s.c. injections of either saline or CR-1409 (10 mg kg-1 day-1, 5 days a week). Six months after operation surviving rats were killed as follows: sham + saline 20, PBD + saline 19, sham + CR-1409 14, PBD + CR-1409 11. Cardiac blood was taken for CCK assay and the pancreas was excised for wet weight measurement and quantitative estimation of atypical acinar cell foci (AACF), the precursor of carcinoma. PBD reduced median body weight (3-20% less than shams) but trebled the absolute and relative pancreatic weights (P
