The work reported in this thesis examines the effect of commercially available elemental diets on bile acid metabolism and small bowel structure and function in rats and humans. The development of elemental or synthetically formulated, chemically defined diets is described in Chapter 2, and bile acid metabolism and gut structure and function are discussed in Chapters 5 and 4 of the introductory section, Section I. In Section II the results of the studies on the effects of elemental diets on bile acid metabolism and pancreatic secretion are reported and in Section III small bowel structure and function in relation to elemental diet feeding have been investigated. The two diets studied were Vivonex and Flexical, which differ in their fat content, the nature of the nitrogen source and the carbohydrate composition. Section IV is a general discussion section.
