  • Neuronal
  • Neuronal changes and disruption of the gastrointestinal (GI) intramural nervous plexus may be especially important regarding the pivotal role of the duodenum in the initiation and coordination of antroduodenal motor activity. (kuleuven.be)
  • Diabetic
  • Any disturbed motor function in the gut could therefore be one of the numerous expressions of diabetic neuropathy affecting the cardiovascular, the endocrine or the gastrointestinal system. (bmj.com)
  • dysfunction
  • The overproduction of cytokines [ 1 ] and inflammatory mediators may account for systemic inflammatory response once the onset of disease of AP, which might cause multiple organ dysfunctions and/or failures if the inflammatory response was out of control, including the gastrointestinal dysfunction and acute lung injury (ALI) at the early stage [ 2 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunction in AP, the trigger of multiple organ failure [ 1 ], was related to the intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and/or abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). (hindawi.com)
  • intestine
  • The effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) on gastrointestinal motility and ALI in rats with AP was investigated to verify the theory of "lung and large intestine are interior exteriorly related" in traditional Chinese medicine. (hindawi.com)
  • The investigators wish to use this method, MTS, to compare the motility of the small intestine and the colon in patients with IBS-D and IBS-C as well as to compare these to groups to MTS done on healthy volunteers under the same conditions as the IBS patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • inflammatory
  • EA treatment could promote gastrointestinal motility through inhibiting VIP, and promoting CCK expression and regulate pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators to ameliorate ALI in AP. (hindawi.com)
  • The approaches to decrease IAH, sustain the intestinal barrier and gastrointestinal function would help inhibit the inflammatory response, enhance the blood SpO2, and improve the clinical results [ 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • As well as herbal formula, the effect of acupuncture on the inflammatory response and gastrointestinal motility was also explored. (hindawi.com)
  • metabolic
  • Exclusion of metabolic, gastrointestinal, or central nervous system structural or biochemical disease, e.g., individuals with specific physical causes (such as intestinal malrotation) There is no known cure for CVS, but there are medications that can be used for treatment, intervention, and prevention. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • Conclusions The function of AA in improving GI motility is similar to that of SA, and this effect can be blocked by the presence of atropine, indicating that this effect is regulated by the vagus. (bmj.com)
  • study
  • The goal of this pilot study is to evaluate the usefulness of FMS as a noninvasive method to stimulate the GI motility in individuals with non-neurological constipation by adopting a 5-week conditioning protocol performed in a hospital outpatient setting. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • system
  • The vagus nerve, an important component of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), plays an essential role in regulating visceral activity including gastrointestinal (GI) motility. (bmj.com)
  • When taken orally, very little of the drug is absorbed into the rest of the body, which means that most of its actions remain confined to the gastrointestinal system. (wikipedia.org)
  • upper
  • The participants will take either monosodium glutamate or sodium chloride before the first examination of upper GI motility and the other agent before the second examination. (bioportfolio.com)
