Temporal changes in the intestinal growth promoting effects of glucagon-like peptide 2 following intestinal resection.


BACKGROUND We investigated the effects of variations in the postresection timing of glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2) administration on intestinal morphology and activity. METHODS A rat model of 90% intestinal resection (SBR) with exclusively parenteral nutritional (TPN) was used. Early versus late postresection GLP-2 stimulation was compared between SBR… (More)
