Abstract:

Part One of the three-part gastroenterology symposium focuses on the pathophysiology of the small intestine. Much of this information has been accumulated during the past fifteen years. The symposium has been designed to present a synthesis of current knowledge of physiology and dysfunction of the small intestine which will prove helpful to the clinician. The topics in this part include the relationship between intestinal absorption of electrolytes and nonelectrolytes, interaction of cyclic AMP and prostaglandins on small intestinal motility and water and electrolyte transport, electron microscopy, intestinal absorption and metabolism of fats, protein digestion in the small bowel, clinical and morphological aspects of malabsorption, bacteriology of the small intestine, immunopathology and regional enteritis, and selective IgA deficiency and malabsorption.
