Intestinal mucosa forms an important barrier towards harmful agents in the intestinal lumen, besides being the site for absorption of nutrients. Little is known about the intestinal permeability properties in chronic uremia. The permeability toward differently sized polyethylene glycols (PEGs; range 326-1,162 Da) was studied in uremic groups compared to the control groups. The urinary recovery was also recovery of PEGs was increased in the uremic groups compared to the control groups. The… CONTINUE READING
