Urinalysis Test for a Compromised Gastrointestinal Tract
This technology is an orally administered compound that identifies a compromised gastrointestinal tract, especially in diseases that cause "leaks" in to the blood. If the GI tract is compromised, the compound will be found in the urine and a simple urinalysis can be completed. If the individual is healthy the compound will be expelled in the...

A GI-Specific Contrast Agent for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A scaffold bearing eight terminal alkyne groups was synthesized from sucrose, and copies of an azide-terminated Gd-DOTA complex were attached via copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition in this invention. This contrast agent (CA) was administered by gavage to C3H mice. Passage of the CA through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract was followed by...
