"Comprises the natural and assimilative principles of the digestive fluids of the stomach and duodenal tract, viz.: Pepsin, pancreatin, lactic and murlatic acids." ["This ferment (pancreatin) is completely destroyed in the gastric juice. This is why thinking practitioners should not use both pepsin and pancreatin together in the same solution, because the medium in which one must act is opposed to that of the other. In the majority of cases in which pancreatin is given empirically, HCl is still secreted in the stomach and the ferment is destroyed." Heinnieter, Diseases of the Stomach, pages 345?6.1

SMITH, KLINE & FRENCH. ELIXIR PEPSIN, BISMUTH AND PANCREATIN. ELIXIR PEPSIN AND PANCREATIN. ["The value of pancreatin is even more problematical than that of pepsin, for though it would no doubt be valuable where the digestive ferments, particularly those of pancreas, were deficient, this has not been shown to occur. On the other hand, the pancreatic ferments are certainly destroyed in passing through the stomach." Cushny, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, on the Action of Drugs, page 710.]
