Melatonin (MEL) plays a role of an important enterehormone in the gastrointestinal tract. Although more than fifty years have already passed since the moment of its isolation from the pineal gland by Aaron Lerner in 1958, we still reveal new aspects of its action. A number of researchers confirmed the high MEL concentration in the gut tissues, several times surpassing its concentration in peripheral blood. The changes of MEL secretion and metabolism have been described in many gastrointestinal disorders. They can be the consequence of the diseases, but they also do not remain without an effect on the clinical picture of these disorders. With increasing knowledge about physiological function of melatonin and the role of its disturbed homeostasis in the pathogenesis of many gastrointestinal diseases, the indications for its therapeutic use in the supportive treatment of many functional and organic gastrointestinal diseases are being widened. In this paper the authors present a comprehensive review on the role of MEL in the selected diseases of the gut.

Melatonina (MEL) pełni rolę bardzo waŜnego enterohormonu w przewodzie pokarmowym. Pomimo, Ŝe od momentu jej wyizolowania z szyszynki przez Aarona Lernera w 1958 roku minęło ponad 50 lat wciąŜ poznajemy nowe aspekty jej działania. Wielu badaczy potwierdziło wysokie stęŜenia MEL w tkankach przewodu pokarmowego, wielokrotnie przewyŜszające wartości stęŜeń we krwi obwodowej. W szeregu schorzeń układu trawiennego opisano zmiany sekrecji i metabolizmu MEL. Są one często następstwem tych chorób, ale z drugiej strony w istotny sposób mogą takŜe wpływać na ich obraz kliniczny. W miarę poznawania funkcji fizjologicznych MEL oraz roli zaburzeń jej homeostazy w patogenezie wielu schorzeń poszerzamy równieŜ moŜliwości jej terapeutycznego wykorzystania w leczeniu wspomagającym wielu chorób czynnościowych i organicznych przewodu pokarmowego. W pracy przedstawiono zbiorczo informacje dotyczące roli MEL w wybranych chorobach przewodu pokarmowego.
