Effect of extensive resection of small intestine on the enterochromaffin cells of the remaining intestinal segment.


The authors discuss the problem of quantitative changes in enterochromaffin cells in the rat small intestine after its extensive resection. An increase was found in the number of these cells in the peripheral part of the intestine 4 to 8 weeks after the operation. These quantitative changes are explained by the regenerative activity in this period.
