A new gastric-emptying mouse model based on in vivo non-invasive bioluminescence imaging.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Different techniques were used to assess gastric emptying (GE) in small animals; most of them require sophisticated equipment, animal sacrifice and are expensive. In the present investigation a simple, non-invasive method based on bioluminescence imaging (BLI) is reported to study GE, using light-emitting Escherichia coli cells as a marker of the… (More)
