The lactulose breath test (LBT) andgastroenterocolonic scintigraphy (GECS) can both be usedto measure orocecal transit time (OCTT). The aims ofthis study were (1) to measure OCTT by LBT and GECS and (2) to determine whether lactulose altersorocecal transit. Methods: Eight normal subjectsunderwent simultaneous breath hydrogen testing, GECS,and duodenal manometry while receiving either 10 glactulose or placebo with a radiolabeled solid/liquidtest meal during two studies. There was a… CONTINUE READING
