  • Glucans, despite decades of intensive research, has been used only recently in the evaluation of intestinal biology and diseases. This review is focused on comprehensive summary of the current knowledge of transport and absorption through the gastrointestinal tract, therapy of ulcerative colitis by glucan and effects of glucan on gastrointestinal track-related tumors. Studies demonstrating the palliative effects of orally-given glucan may have significant clinical impact, since glucan can be… CONTINUE READING
