Maltose absorption as an indicator of small-intestinal allograft rejection

The Journal of Surgical Research
T R BilliarW H Schraut


Maltose and lactose absorption, which require an intact brush border for breakdown and absorption as glucose, was evaluated as a function test to monitor the integrity of the small-bowel graft. Using the rat model of accessory small-bowel transplantation, absorption tests (in the form of an oral glucose tolerance test) were performed on iso- and allografts with either portal (PP-A) or caval venous drainage (PC-A). In isografts the absorption of maltose was found to be reproducible and not influenced by the type of venous drainage. This was not the case with the use of lactose which thus was not studied further. Allografts with PC-A demonstrated a reduction in their capacity for maltose absorption on the fifth postoperative day, as the glucose peak at 30 min (T30) was significantly blunted in comparison to that for isografts with PC-A (167 mg% +/- 12 vs 204 mg% +/- 8). Functional impairment preceded histologic changes which did not arise before the sixth-to-seventh postoperative day in rats with PC-A. Allografts with PP-A absorbed maltose on the fifth postoperative day nearly as effectively as did isografts (T30 min: 185 mg% +/- 14 vs 213 mg% +/- 8). By the ninth postoperative day, the serum glucose curve after maltose administr...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.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity
