The Effect of Xylitol on Activities of Hepatic Enzymes in Normal and Alloxanized Rats
Since the function of the Pentose Phosphate Pathway and the Glucuronate-Xylulose-Pathway in the intermediary metabolism of carbohydrates has been established, xylitol has become a subject of our attention in relation to the coupling of these two pathways and their alternative mechanisms. It also has been applied to clinical use; i. e., its biological role as a new type of energy source, or as a sugar substitute, especially in the diabetic state has been mainly focused.
