Recently, we developed the [13/14C]octanoic acid breath test to measure gastric emptying of solids. Although the method has been validated extensively, absorption, metabolism, and excretion of the label in the breath need to be corrected for. In this study a mathematical model was developed that allows for 1) separation of the global CO2 excretion after ingestion of the labeled test meal into the emptying rate of the labeled test meal from mouth to pylorus and the postgastric processing of… CONTINUE READING
