In this article, the effects of different classes of cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor antagonists in CCK-related physiological processes of the pancreas have been discussed. Both glutaramic acid derivatives and natural (benzodiazepine) analogs are potent, competitive antagonists of peripheral CCK receptors. These compounds thus provide a powerful tool for investigating the physiological and pharmacological actions of CCK in the gastrointestinal system, and have already clarified the role of CCK in pancreatic secretion and trophism or growth.
