Interventions to enhance the adaptive response are needed to decrease the morbidity and mortality associated with short bowel syndrome. Retinoic acid was shown to stimulate crypt cell proliferation in the adapting remnant rat ileum by 6 hours after resection. Thus, vitamin A, which is required for normal epithelial cell proliferation and… CONTINUE READING
