Medium-chain triglycerides enhance secretory IgA expression in rat intestine after administration of endotoxin.


The purpose of this study was to determine whether medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) modulate the inflammatory immune response to LPS and enhance the expression of secretory IgA in the rat intestine. Rats were given either corn oil or MCTs by gavage daily for 1 wk, and LPS or saline vehicle was administered via the tail vein. They were then killed, and… (More)
