How Is the Duodenum Protected against Stomach Acids*?

Answer

The duodenum regulates the stomach acids by emptying of the stomach through hormonal pathways. Cells in the duodenal epithelium respond to fatty and acidic stimulation which open pylorus and releases gastric chyme into the duodenum to help further along digestion. This, in turn, causes the liver and gall bladder to secrete bile for the pancreas to produce and release bicarbonate and other digestive enzymes like trypsin amylase when needed. The bicarbonate that is released by the pancreas is to regulate the hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
