    1. The sites of absorption of increasing doses of 131I-labelled triolein in the rat

    Abstract

    These studies on fat absorption in rats show that a small dose was relatively rapidly absorbed in the jejunum. With larger doses it was also absorbed in the ileum. When larger doses were given the jejunum responded to the increased load with an increased absorption, and fat was also absorbed in the ileum.
