4,5 It is well known that early micro-feeding can stimulate the development and maturation of the gastrointestinal tract, promote release of gastrointestinal hormones and augment gastrointestinal motility, thereby increasing the feeding tolerance and development of neonates.
As the main energy source for intestinal mucosal cells and all the rapidly growing cells, glutamine is beneficial to secretion of gastrointestinal hormones in the disease state.
Providing enteral nutrition support for neonates pave the way for their growth and development, supplementing which with glutamine can promote the absorption of routine nutrients and vitamin D, apparently regulate gastrointestinal hormones, and facilitate weight gain.
In conclusion, continuous jejunal interpositionon on gastrointestinal hormones after distal gastrectomy kept relative high levels of serum gastrin and plasma motilin, meanwhile mentained a low level of cholecystokinin in experimental model.
Role of gastrointestinal hormones in pathogenesis of functional diseases of the digestive system in adolescent.
Delayed gastric emptying is often accompanied by some alterations in the gastrointestinal hormone systems of humans and other mammals.
These results suggest that the regulative effects of the EO on delayed gastric emptying are preformed mainly via inhibition of the release of central CRF and activation of vagal pathway, which are also involved in the release of gastrointestinal hormones such as MTL, GAS and SS.
We also examined whether the EO mediating restraint stress-induced delay of gastric emptying is involved in gastrointestinal hormones.
In the experiments on the effects of EO on gastric emptying, gastrointestinal hormones and CRF in rats subjected to restraint stress, 40 model rats were randomly divided into four groups (n = 10): three EO treatment groups (30, 60, 120 mg [kg.
Gastrointestinal hormones are regulated by the autonomic nervous system, the vagal nerve in particular.
The regulative effects are preformed mainly via inhibition of the release of central CRF and activation of vagal pathway, which are also involved in the release of gastrointestinal hormones such as MTL, GAS and SS.
