Alterations in intestinal barrier function do not predispose to translocation of enteric bacteria in gastroenterologic patients



Alterations in intestinal barrier function do not predispose to translocation of enteric bacteria in gastroenterologic patients



Nutrition 14(4): 358-362



Intestinal permeability was assessed in 43 patients (18 men and 25 women aged 24-89 years) by the lactulose/L-rhamnose test with a 5-h urine collection. Mucosal atrophy was assessed from the villus height-to-mucosal thickness ratio in small-bowel biopsies. Bacterial translocation was determined by microbiologic analysis of harvested mesenteric lymph modes.
