• duodenum
  • To this end, we examined the effects on the whole intestinal tract (from duodenum to left colon) of a well-known γ-secretase inhibitor, dibenzazepine (DBZ), administrated to mice daily for 8 days at an efficient and nontoxic dose. (biologists.org)
  • bladder
  • An ostomy pouching system is a prosthetic medical device that provides a means for the collection of waste from a surgically diverted biological system (colon, ileum, bladder) and the creation of a stoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • mesenteric
  • Sharon J. Song and Stuti G. Shroff, "Idiopathic Myointimal Hyperplasia of Mesenteric Veins of the Ileum and Colon in a Patient with Crohn's Disease: A Case Report and Brief Review of the Literature," Case Reports in Pathology , vol. 2017, Article ID 6793031, 6 pages, 2017. (hindawi.com)
  • The solitary diverticulum lies on the antimesenteric border of the ileum (opposite to the mesenteric attachment) and extends into the umbilical cord of the embryo. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • X-rays of the abdomen may reveal stool in the colon and air-fluid levels in the small intestines. (wikipedia.org)
  • This blind segment or small pouch is about 3-6 cm (2 inch) long and may have a greater lumen diameter than that of the ileum. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammatory
  • MR enterography subsequently performed at our institution revealed minimally active inflammatory disease from the rectosigmoid to descending colon without any evidence of complications or active disease involving the neoterminal ileum. (hindawi.com)
  • lung
  • The administration of folinic acid, which forces the methylation of CXCL 16, induces high levels of methylation of the CXCL 16 gene promoter in colon, ileum and lung and causes iNKT cells accumulation in these tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • fluid
  • Fluid absorption in this region of the bowel is very inefficient when compared with the ileum. (oley.org)
  • Thus, the colon becomes an important organ for fluid and electrolyte conservation and for the salvage of may be greater than in normals. (oley.org)
  • Thus, the colon becomes an important organ for fluid and electrolyte conservation and for the salvage of malabsorbed energy substrates in patients with a short bowel. (oley.org)
  • found
  • Oral contrast instillation into the colon/ileum under radiological control has been found to reduce the need for surgical intervention. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • We demonstrate that DBZ elicits a homogeneous goblet cell conversion all along the mouse intestinal tract, associated with an overexpression of the gene Muc2 without ectopic expression of the gastric genes Muc5ac and Muc6 , and with the emergence of lysozyme-positive 'intermediate cells' in the colon. (biologists.org)
  • Peptide YY is a short (36-amino acid) peptide released from cells in the ileum and colon in response to feeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is secreted by the neuroendocrine cells in the ileum and colon in response to a meal, and has been shown to reduce appetite. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the majority of L-cells are located in the distal ileum and colon, the early phase is likely explained by neural signalling, gut peptides or neurotransmitters. (wikipedia.org)
  • transit
  • The colon has the slowest transit varying between 24-150 hours. (oley.org)
  • Dietary fibers from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, consumed, increase the speed of transit of intestinal chyme into the ileum, to raise PYY3-36, and induce satiety. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • Furthermore, DBZ treatment induces a heterogeneous reorganization of the crypt structural-proliferative units along the intestinal tract and of the stem cell niche in the colon, without disturbing the apoptotic compartment. (biologists.org)
