This study investigated whether emptying of a radiolabelled semisolid 1168 kJ meal and antral contractility were enhanced by intravenous erythromycin. Eight women and two men with anorexia nervosa (21-46 years, 50-75% of ideal body weight) received 200 mg erythromycin or placebo under crossover… CONTINUE READING
