Enzymic efficiency in avitaminosis

VII. Peptic digestion in vitamin B deficiency
  • Barnett Sure
  • Robert Troy Harrelson

Conclusion and Summary

The data presented in this paper conclusively demonstrates that neither in a deficiency of the vitamin B complex nor in vitamin B1 deficiency associated with varying degrees of paralysis is there any significant change in the rate of peptic digestion when comparisons are made with litter mate controls of the same sex and restricted to the same plane of nutrition.
