An 8 day raw soybean diet augments the selenomethionine uptake by the rat pancreas by twofold at 25 minutes after the intravenous injection of the isotope. Whether or not this response is due to trypsin inhibition or will prove clinically useful in pancreatic scanning has not been established. However, these observations warrant further investigations into the duration of dietary exposure necessary to effect measurable response, followed by attempts at clinical enhancement of pancreatic selenomethionine uptake for pancreatic scanning.
