This study determined that intestinal myoelectric activity was profoundly altered during a strictly luminal, chronic, tapeworm infection. Chronically implanted bipolar electrodes were attached to five sites on the serosal surface of the rat small intestine. One was placed on the duodenum, three on the jejunum, and the fifth on the ileum. Electromyographic recording in nonfasted unanesthetized animals was begun at day 5 postsurgery. All electromyographic recordings were analyzed for slow wave… CONTINUE READING
