The Effect of an Elemental Diet on Gut-Associated Lymphoid Tissue (Galt) in Rats
Intestinal gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) IS constantly exposed to various antigenic stimuli in the gut lumen. Various dietary substances are known to have a great influence on the intestinal lymphatic system which plays an important role in intestinal mucosal immunity. For example, in our previous study,1 we reported that a remarkable increase in lymphocyte transport was induced during lipid adsorption in rat mesenteric lymphatics.
