Absorption of canthaxanthin by the rat is influenced by total lipid in the intestinal lumen


In this study the effect of luminal lipid on the absorption of canthaxanthin (CTX) was investigated using the lymph duct cannulated rat. Treatments were emulsions designed to deliver increasing amounts of olive oil (10, 30, 50, 70, or 90 mg/h) and CTX (12.5 nmol/h). Emulsions were continuously infused into the duodenum for 12 h, and lymph was collected… (More)
