BACKGROUND The intestinal wall integrity is central to the barrier function and depends on the balance of proliferation/apoptosis. Short bowel (SB) or Parenteral Nutrition (PN) induce high bacterial translocation (BT) probably by the intestinal barrier bug. Probiotics or minimal enteral nutrition (MEN) have reduced BT in animal models. OBJECTIVE Determine in two BT animal models (SB or PN) the effect of MEN or probiotics on proliferation and apoptosis rates of the intestinal wall. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
