Intestinal maturation: in vivo loss of calcium in suckling and adult rats.

Abstract

Intestinal permeability to Ca is greater in infant than in older rats, predisposing the infant rat to hypocalcemia. The present studies compared in suckling and adult rats the amount of Ca lost into the intestinal lumen in relation to plasma Ca during an acute 2-h in vivo recirculation perfusion of the jejunum and ileum with an isotonic NaCl solution either… (More)
