Nitric oxide (NO) is an important neurotransmitter in the gut and has been demonstrated to be a key physiological mediator of non-adrenergic non-cholinergic (NANC) relaxation of gastrointestinal smooth muscle. In the present study the effect of PDE 5 inhibitor sildenafil on the gastrointestinal function (gastric emptying and intestinal transit) has been demonstrated in mice. Sildenafil (0.5-2 mg/kg, po) did not alter the percent gastric emptying however, in higher doses (5, 10 and 30 mg/kg, po) it inhibited the gastric emptying...

The effect of a bolus intravenous administration of secretin (2.0 U/kg) on resting lower esophageal sphincter pressure (LESP) was investigated in seven patients with esophageal achalasia. Basal LESP before secretin injection in the patients was 60.1 +/- 3.4 mmHg (Mean +/- SEM), which was significantly higher than 26.9 +/- 2.5 mmHg in normal controls consisting of eight healthy volunteers. LESP significantly decreased within 1 min after the injection both in the patients and the controls. The maximum pressure change from each basal LESP was 31...
