The present series succeeds very well. Section 6, which covers the alimentary canal, includes Volume I on Control of Food and Water Intake; Volume II on Secretion; Volume III on Intestinal Absorption; Volume IV on Motility; and now Volume V on the Biliary System, Digestion, Ruminal Physiology, and such special topics as secretion of proteins into the gastrointestinal tract, aganglionosis, the role of bacterial flora, gas, cell proliferation, and control of
Bile; Digestion; Ruminal Physiology. Volume V of Alimentary Canal.. Ann Intern Med. 1969;70:1053. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-70-5-1053_1
