Example sentences for: absorption

How can you use “absorption” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • It is shown below that a good fit to a variety of experimental intestinal absorption processes is provided by the 3 parameter (A,a,b) gamma distribution:

  • Jejunal glucose absorption was enhanced in patients with cystic fibrosis when measured with catheter perfusion techniques [ 25 ] . Ussing chamber studies of intact CF biopsy specimens suggest that glucose and alanine uptake rates are markedly increased in cystic fibrosis [ 26 ] . Taylor also studied intact jejunal biopsies and found that the rate of active sodium/glucose transport approximately doubled in CF compared to normal jejunum [ 27 ] .

  • One of these options is based on first finding the gamma distribution approximation to the intestinal absorption (fig.

  • Low intestinal calcium absorption efficiency in humans is common and contributes to negative calcium balance and bone loss [ 1 ] . Recent epidemiological evidence suggests that low fractional calcium absorption is a significant risk factor for future osteoporotic hip fracture [ 2 ] . The primary homeostatic mechanism for altering calcium absorption in response to low dietary calcium intake and increased calcium requirements during growth is an increase in plasma 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, the active hormonal form of vitamin D produced in the kidney [ 3 ] . 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D is a seco-steroid that acts on gene transcription through a nuclear steroid receptor protein and also may have nongenomic actions mediated by a putative plasma membrane vitamin D receptor [ 4 ] . Changes in vitamin D status primarily alter the rate of Ca absorption in the proximal small intestine.

  • For this reason, the gamma distribution has been chosen in this paper as the function of choice to model intestinal absorption data.
