Kinetics of glucose-stimulated water absorption and small bowel absorptive function in normal pigs and pigs affected with swine dysentery were examined with a steady-state perfusion technique. Glucose-dependent stimulation of solute and water absorption was shown in normal pigs with a transport constant of 46.9 mM and a maximum change in volume transport capacity of 78.3 ml/h/50 cm of jejunum. The entire small intestine of normal pigs absorbed 10 mg/min of an isotonic fluid when the luminal… CONTINUE READING
