1. 1. Effects of secretin and pancreozymin on the exocrine secretion in the Syrian hamster were examined. 2. 2. These determinations were made and compared to each other as well as to previously published data, protein concentration, flow rate, pH, and ionic content including Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+, HCO-3, Cl-, HPO2-4 and SO2-4, as well as rates of DNA, RNA and protein synthesis. 3. 3. Dramatic changes occurred in early period protein concentration, sodium concentration, reciprocity between amounts of chloride and bicarbonate and in amounts of DNA, RNA and protein synthesis. 4. 4. Histological examination of pancreas revealed no physical alteration of tissue in either case.
