Title:
Influence of acute exposure to high altitude on basal and postprandial plasma levels of gastroenteropancreatic peptides. 
Abstract:
Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is characterized by headache often accompanied by gastrointestinal complaints that vary from anorexia through nausea to vomiting. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of high altitude on plasma levels of gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) peptides and their association to AMS symptoms.
