Abstract

The secretion of thallous ions from the blood into the lumen of the stomach, the jejunum and the colon was investigated in situ on anesthetized rats (urethane, 1.25 g/kg). The method of the pendulum perfusion was used; a detailed description of the method is given. The movement of fluid was measured by aid of 14C-PEG. In the stomach a net secretion of fluid was observed. The fluid volume absorbed in the jejunum and in the colon was 0.05 and 0.044 ml/cm length respectively.
