    Xylose tolerance tests were performed on 35 rheumatoid arthritis patients. In 18 with low urine xylose, 13 had hourly serum xylose determinations. Six of these patients had elevated serum values. In the nine cases with the most depressed urine xylose, five had hourly serum xylose determinations....

    The Idi-xylose tolerance test is used to screen for intestinal malabsorption of carbohydrates. Idi-Xylose is a pentose sugar not normally present in the blood in significant amounts. It is partially absorbed when ingested and normally passes unmetabolized in the urine.

    Abstract??D-xylose hydrogen breath test (H2BT) may be better parameter in screening for intestinal malabsorption in patients with celiac disease. This study sought to compare D-xylose H2BT with urinary D-xylose tests in screening for intestinal malabsorption in patients with celiac disease. A...

    Zymomonas mobilis is a promising organism for biofuel production as it can produce ethanol from glucose at high rates. However, Z. mobilis does not natively ferment C5 sugars such as xylose. While it has been engineered to do so, the engineered strains do not metabolize these sugars at high...

    The bioconversion of xylose to xylitol by Candida guilliermondii FTI 20037 cultivated in sugar cane bagasse hemicellulosic hydrolyzate was influenced by cell inoculum level, age of inoculum and hydrolyzate concentration. The maximum xylitol productivity (0.75 g L[SUP-1] h[SUP-1]) occurred in...

    Objectives: To document the sensitivity of the 1-g 14C-D-xylose breath test for bacterial overgrowth and to investigate luminal and nonluminal factors that may influence breath 14CO2 levels and impact on the clinical utility of this test. Methods: Thirty-five adult subjects were investigated for...
