• intestine
  • In conclusion, although a large number of crossing events took place throughout the intestine within and without Peyer's patches, multiple firewalls prevented systemic dissemination of vector and suppressed production of transgene-encoded protein in Peyer's patches. (frontiersin.org)
  • bile
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency Bile acid diarrhea Urinary urgency Sexual dysfunction Prevention of radiation injury to the small bowel is a key aim of techniques such as brachytherapy, field size, multiple field arrangements, conformal radiotherapy techniques and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • The net effect of enterohepatic recirculation is that each bile salt molecule is reused about 20 times, often multiple times during a single digestive phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • FGF19 has important roles as a hormone produced in the ileum in response to bile acid absorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ileum is very efficient at absorbing the glyco- and taurine-conjugated forms of the bile salts. (wikipedia.org)
  • The synthesis of bile acids in the liver is negatively regulated by the ileal hormone fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19), and lower levels of this hormone result in overproduction of bile acids, which are more than the ileum can absorb. (wikipedia.org)
  • This nuclear medicine test involves two scans a week apart and so measures multiple cycles of bile acid excretion and reabsorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • Most NETs of the small and large intestines occur sporadically, while others may occur within the background of an inherited neoplasia syndrome such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) or neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) (e.g., gastrin-producing G-cell tumors and somatostatin-producing D-cell tumors of the duodenum, respectively).

  • Multiple images from a small bowel follow through. (radiopaedia.org)
  • After bariatric surgery for obesity, connections between the stomach and the ileum can be formed, which may increase bacterial load in the small bowel. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • World J Gastroenterol 15(39): 4883-4885 Rocha A, Artigas V (1959) Stenosing ulcerous disease of the jejuno-ileum. (wikipedia.org)
  • scans
  • Tc99-labelled RBC scan is sensitive to less than 0.1mL/min, CTA requires 0.3mL/min (may be intermittent hence need multiple scans), angiography requires 0.5-1mL/min (bleeding may be intermittent). (radnotes.co.nz)
