Previous work has shown that irradiation produces changes in small intestinal villous shape, which can be quantified using a villous scoring system applied to scanning electron micrographs. It has already been shown that reserpine, which, like irradiation, increases gastrointestinal motility, produces a similar type of villous collapse, thereby supporting… CONTINUE READING
