The purpose of this study was to determine whether the postprandial increase of intestinal lymphatic protein flux is due to an increased capillary permeability. Intestinal lymph flow and lymph (L) and plasma (P) protein concentrations were measured at various venous pressures under control conditions, after cream feeding, and during intraluminal perfusion with a bile-oleic acid solution. The osmotic reflection coefficient (sigma d), a measure of capillary permeability that is independent of… CONTINUE READING
