Previous studies from our laboratory indicate that the lymph flow response of the cat ileum to net volume secretion is dependent upon the mechanism involved in the secretory process, i.e, active secretion (cholera toxin) decreases lymph flow while passive fluid secretion (increased portal pressure, plasma dilution) is associated with a rise in lymph flow. In the present study, we examined the effects of ricinoleic acid, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, theophylline, histamine, and human… CONTINUE READING
