Core Tip There are four endocrine cell types in the oxyntic mucosa of the stomach: ghrelin, serotonin, somatostatin and histamine-containing (enterochromaffin-like) cells. These cells regulate several functions that are disturbed in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), such as motility and visceral sensation. Of all these cell types, ghrelin cells are the only endocrine cell type that has been studied in IBS patients. The present study investigated all the oxyntic mucosa endocrine cell types and reported several abnormalities that can shed light on the pathophysiology of IBS.
