Methods

A PUBMED search using the terms (gastrin OR hypergastrin* OR Zollinger NOT gastrin releasing peptide) AND (investigat* OR test OR stimulat* or provocat* OR helicobacter OR proton pump inhibitor) was performed for English language articles published over the last 10 years. Abstracts from approximately 1900 articles were reviewed that yielded approximately 130 articles of relevance. Relevant older references were subsequently obtained from the reference lists of these articles.
