Özet

Background. Although gastrointestinal mucus is one of a number of putative host defense mechanisms that protect the gut barrier against microbial translocation, little experimental data are available to show its role in this process. The present study sought to determine the role of mucus depletion on the transepithelial passage of bacteria across viable segments of rat ileum mounted in Ussing chambers in vitro.
