We tested the hypothesis that an increased epithelial permeability may affect sites other than the intestine in patients with Crohn's disease by simultaneously evaluating their pulmonary and intestinal permeability. Pulmonary and intestinal permeability were measured by clearance of inhaled technetium99m diethylene triamine pentacetate (99mTcDTPA) and by urinary recovery of chromium51 ethylene diamine tetracetate respectively in 22 patients with Crohn's disease. The halftime clearance of 99mTc… CONTINUE READING
