Motilin- M cells from duodenum and jejunum
Somatostatin - D cells in pancreas, stomach and duodenum

Somatostain is an inhibitory hormone and inhibits most of the things

Secretin is released by acid in the duodenum and stimulates pancreatic fluid and bicarbonate secretion, leading to neutralization of acidic chyme in the intestine. Secretin also inhibits gastric acid secretion  and intestinal motility. LES pressure is decreased by Secretin, CCK, Somatostatin and VIP

Stage I patients can be surveyed in 3 years;

stage II in 1 year;

stage III in 6 months

and stage IV is an indication to consider surgery. 36 % progress to cancer- Surgery is pancreas preserving duodenectomy

A Whipple is indicated for a duodenal cancer that is definitively operable
