The present study investigates the effect of Chang Run Tong (CRT) on the biomechanical and morphometrical remodeling of colon and rectum in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The colonic and rectal segments were obtained from diabetic (DM), CRT-treated diabetic (T1, high dosage: 50 g/kg/day; T2, low dosage: 25 g/kg/day) and normal (Con) rats. The experimental period was 60 d. The blood glucose level and body weight were measured. The circumferential length, wall thickness, and opening angle…

Abnormal expressions of AGEs, TGF-β1, BDNF and their receptors in diabetic rat colon–Associations with colonic morphometric and biomechanical remodeling
STZ-induced diabetes up-regulated the expression of AGE, RAGE, TGF- β1 and TGF - β1 receptors and down-regulated BDNF and TrkB in different layers of diabetic colon mainly due to hyperglycemia.
Mechanism Investigation of the Improvement of Chang Run Tong on the Colonic Remodeling in Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats
The corrective effect on the expressions of those proteins is likely to be one molecular pathway for the improvement of CRT on the diabetes-induced colon remodeling.


Biomechanical and Histomorphometric Colon Remodelling in STZ-Induced Diabetic Rats
The observed changes in residual strain, opening angle, and stress–strain relation may be contributing factors to colonic dysfunction and abdominal pain in diabetic patients.
The morphometry and biomechanical properties of the rat small intestine after systemic treatment with epidermal growth factor.
Morphometric and passive biomechanical properties were studied in isolated segments of the duodenum, jejunum and ileum in 22 EGF-treated rats and 12 control rats and showed that the thickness and area of the layers increased after EGF treatment.

The physiological and clinical importance of acquiring biomechanical data, distensibility parameters and interpretation of these results and their associated errors are discussed and several techniques to study the mechanical properties of the GI tract are outlined.
Colonic transit time in diabetic patients--comparison with healthy subjects and the effect of autonomic neuropathy.
Comparing the colonic transit time between patients with diabetes mellitus and healthy subjects, and correlate it to the presence of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy found other mechanisms than the mere presence of cardiogenic neuropathy might be more relevant to the development of constipation in patients with Diabetes mellitus.
Phenotypic variation of colonic motor functions in chronic constipation.
Fasting and/or postprandial colonic tone are reduced, reflecting motor dysfunctions, even in NTC, which allows chronic constipation to be characterized into phenotypes.

Pathophysiology of constipation in the older adult.
Findings from a limited number of clinical studies that utilized objective measures do not support that self-reported constipation increases with age, and changes in GI function associated with aging appear to be relatively subtle based on a limited amount of conflicting data.
Anorectal manometry in patients with chronic constipation: a single-center experience.
Constipated patients are characterized by impaired rectal sensitivity and decreased anal sphincter contractile pressure, which is helpful for diagnosing anorectal dysfunction in patients with chronic constipation.

Clinical utility of colonic and anorectal manometry in chronic constipation.
A critical appraisal of the role of manometric techniques toward augmenting the understanding of colonic and anorectal physiology, both in health and constipation and discussing their clinical utility in the diagnosis and management of chronic constipation is provided.
