Humoral factors in intestinal adaptation.

The small bowel has a remarkable ability to adapt after injury, inflammation or resection. It has long been suggested that humoral factors, particularly enteroglucagon, epidermal growth factor, neurotensin and growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor I, might stimulate bowel growth. Of particular interest is the recent finding that glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2), a product of the gene encoding proglucagon, exerts a trophic effect on the intestinal epithelium via a specific G-protein-coupled receptor. GLP-2 and/or these other trophic peptides might prove to have a role in the treatment of bowel diseases associated with structural or functional loss of the small bowel.
