[13C-mixed triglyceride CO2 exhalation test. Investigation with an isotope selective, non dispersive infrared spectrophotometer of indirect function of the exocrine pancreas].

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The 13C-mixed-triglyceride CO2-exhalation test (MTE) has been proposed for the noninvasive assessment of intraluminal duodenal pancreatic lipase activity. Up to now, stable isotope analysis of carbon dioxide of the MTE has been carried out with isotope ratio mass-spectrometry. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the MTE in… (More)
