Experimental Physiology

Conclusions

1. The mechanism of normal bowel drainage depends upon the maintenance of a difference, on the acid side, between the pH and the iso-electric point of the feces.

2. The pH of the feces, and hence normal drainage, can quickly be controlled by the administration of starch in excess of the pancreatic threshold.
