A. G. Low, Teresa Zebrowska
1977 British Journal of Nutrition  
1. Discrepancies between the results obtained from experiments on pigs with re-entrant duodenal cannulas have been investigated with reference to diet, cannula site and collection procedure. 2. The results obtained from a sealed automatic collection system were different from those obtained from an open manual method and it was concluded that the maintenance of gut intra-luminal pressure in the automatic system was the causative factor.
