Project description

The hypothesis will be tested in this project is that the induced fluid STa

may be due to the inhibition of the GC-C receptor activity. secretion in the intestine inhibited the

second objective is to synthesize at least for which in vivo, two new GC-C inhibitors

can be. activity demonstrated
