Ileal Transposition Decreases Plasma Lipopolysaccharide Levels in Association with Increased L Cell Secretion in Non-obese Non-diabetic Rats.

BACKGROUND Chronic exposure to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) contributes to metabolic abnormalities, but there has been no study to evaluate plasma LPS levels after ileal transposition (IT). We examined the effect of IT on gut hormone secretion and plasma LPS levels and their correlation with metabolic parameters. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats underwent either… CONTINUE READING
