Arachidonic acid and postprandial intestinal hyperemia.


The effects of prostaglandin synthesis on food-induced increases in intestinal blood flow and O2 uptake were examined in the jejunum of anesthetized dogs. Intravenous (40 micrograms X kg-1 X min-1) or intra-arterial (0.8-1.6 microgram X min-1) infusions and luminal placement (6.5 X 10(-4) M or 200 micrograms/ml) of arachidonic acid (AA) significantly… (More)
