  • Oral administration of methotrexate (MTX) to mice causes the damage of small intestine. The permeability of poorly absorbable compound fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled dextran (average molecular weight, 4,400) through the small intestine was studied in vitro using everted segments of the small intestine. The permeability of FITC-dextran increased remarkably in the MTX-treated mice and oral administration of docosahexaenoic acid ethyl ester (DHA) protected the small intestine from the… CONTINUE READING
