Assessment of gastric emptying in non-obese diabetic mice using a [13C]-octanoic acid breath test.

Abstract

Gastric emptying studies in mice have been limited by the inability to follow gastric emptying changes in the same animal since the most commonly used techniques require killing of the animals and postmortem recovery of the meal(1,2). This approach prevents longitudinal studies to determine changes in gastric emptying with age and progression of disease… (More)
