abstract

  • Psyllium administered directly into the duodenum inhibits MMC activity and consistently induces 'clustered' contractions. Whilst the MMC-inhibitory effect appears to be a non-specific volume-related phenomenon, the induction of clusters is independent of volume or laxation. These motor effects of psyllium may contribute to the gastrointestinal symptomatology related to such agents and could be avoided by the preferential release of psyllium in the colon.
