The xylose absorptive capacity of rats on four experimental diets were studied by a modification of the Cori technic. Diet I was nutritionally adequate; Diet II, nutritionally inadequate; Diet III, like Diet I but containing less protein and more carbohydrate; Diet IV, like Diet III, but containing still less protein and still more carbohydrates.

A group of 11 rats were treated with aminopterin for 8 days and were compared with control animals by the xylose test for intestinal absorption. The aminopterin treated rats absorbed 58±24.13 mg. xylose per 100 Gm. of rat per hour; control animals absorbed 94.8±14.4 mg. xylose per 100 Gm. rat per hour. Morphologic changes in the intestines of 2 rats studied(More)
A modified Cori4, 13 rat preparation was used to study the effect of concentration on the absorption rates of xylose and glucose from the small intestine. Solutions of 25 per cent and 50 per cent glucose were absorbed at statistically identical rates, whereas a 50 per cent solution of xylose was absorbed at almost twice the rate of a 25 per cent solution.
