AbstractThis suggests that the thermotolerant animals were not only able to recruit or produce more goblet cells to protect the gut surface, but that greater numbers of the goblet cells in the thermotolerant animals were of the mature acidic type and thus capable of functioning in a protective capacity. These findings provide evidence for thermotolerance-induced histological changes in the bowel wall providing a protective effect against adverse sequelae of surgery.
