We aimed to establish whether there was a variation in orocecal transit time (OCTT) in Myanmar children and whether shortened transit time correlated with malnutrition.

The relationships between OCTT, sex, age, and malnutrition status were assessed. OCTT for 1 to 5-year old children was 90.2 ± 20 min (mean ± SD). There was no significant difference in mean OCTT between… CONTINUE READING
