Gastric mucosal toxicity of duodenal juice constituents in the rat. Acute studies using ex vivo rat gastric chamber model

Digestive Diseases and Sciences
D ArmstrongR H Dowling


To determine the acute gastrotoxicity of refluxed duodenal contents, an ex vivo rat gastric chamber was used to study mucosal damage produced by conjugated and unconjugated human bile acids and lysolecithin at neutral and acidic pH; the effects of trypsin, human duodenal aspirate, and combinations of chenodeoxycholic acid, lecithin, and lysolecithin were also studied. At neutral pH, all bile acids except tauroursodeoxycholic acid, caused dose-dependent falls in mucosal potential difference and losses of mucosal nucleic acid into the chamber fluid, indicating mucosal damage. The di-alpha-hydroxy bile acids, deoxycholic and chenodeoxycholic acids, were more gastrotoxic than cholic and ursodeoxycholic acids, and all unconjugated bile acids were more toxic than their conjugated species, none of which produced damage at concentrations below 2.0 mM. For all but the taurine conjugates, bile acid-induced changes in potential difference were lower at acidic then at neutral pH. Lysolecithin gastrotoxicity, comparable at neutral pH to that of chenodeoxycholic acid, was also reduced at acidic pH. Lecithin decreased the gastrotoxicity of chenodeoxycholic acid and lysolecithin. Trypsin produced no damage, and the gastrotoxicity of human duod...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.
