BACKGROUND Increased intestinal 'permeability' in inflammatory bowel disease and in animal models of this disease has been reported. This study asks if permeability changes are bidirectional and parallel cellular inflammation. METHODS In rats acute inflammatory cell infiltration (ICI) was induced in an excluded bowel loop by instillation of 4% acetic acid. Plasma exudation was investigated by intravenous infusion of 125I-albumin and determination of radioactivity in loop perfusates… CONTINUE READING
