The authors talk about the confounding effects of gavage in mice. He said that gavage is the most widely used method for precise oral dosing in experimental studies involving rodents. In the hands of a skilled operator, the procedure is rapid and allows for a precise volume of a substance to be delivered directly to the stomach, where it can be absorbed. Gavage is advantageous in situations where the substance to be delivered cannot be incorporated into feed or is unpalatable. Of particular interest to the current readership is the common use of gavage in studies with a respiratory focus.

A comprehensive study of novel microcapsules incorporating gliclazide and a permeation enhancing bile acid: hypoglycemic effect in an animal model of Type-1 diabetesMathavan, Sangeetha; Chen-Tan, N.; Arfuso, Frank; Al-Salami, Hani (2015)Context: Gliclazide (G) is a commonly prescribed drug for Type 2 diabetes (T2D). In a recent study, we found that when G was combined with a primary bile acid, and gavaged to an animal model of Type 1 diabetes (T1D), it ...
Pharmacological effects of nanoencapsulation of human-based dosing of probucol on ratio of secondary to primary bile acids in gut, during induction and progression of type 1 diabetesMooranian, Armin; Zamani, Nassim; Takechi, Ryu; Al-Sallami, H.; Mikov, M.; Golocorbin-Kon, S.; Kovacevic, B.; Arfuso, Frank; Al-Salami, Hani (2018)INTRODUCTION: The ratio of secondary to primary bile acids changes during Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) development and these effects might be ameliorated by using cholesterol lowering drugs or hydrophilic bile acids.

Diabetes development increased concentrations of the conjugated bile acid, taurocholic acid in serum, while treatment with microencapsulated-taurocholic acid exerted no hypoglycaemic effectsMathavan, S.; Mikov, M.; Golocorbin-Kon, S.; Al-Salami, Hani (2017)The bile acid taurocholic acid (TCA) is endogenously produced, and has shown formulation-stabilising effects when incorporated into microcapsules containing potential antidiabetic drugs. This study aimed to develop and ...
