Movement of 3-0-methyl glucose across the midgut of Ascaris was inhibited by endotoxin. Inhibition was dependent on endotoxin concentration. Despite the fact that the mechanism by which the transport is inhibited is not known, the knowledge that absorptive processes per se can be impaired may lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of endotoxin action.
