|Title||Paper, 'The influence of bile on the digestion of starch' by Sidney Harris Cox Martin and Dawson Williams|
|Creator||Williams; Dawson (1854-1928); British physician; editor of the British Medical Journal|
|Description||The authors write: 'The object of the research is to ascertain what influence, if any, the presence of bile or its constituents has on the progress and result of pancreatic digestion; it includes the investigation of any such influence on the amylolytic, the proteolytic; and the emulsive ferments. The present communication deals only with the first named; our experiments have been done chiefly with the pancreas and bile of the pig, but another series in which these secretions in other animals are being examined is in progress; the effect of the presence of bile on all amylolytic digestion, ex. gr., that of saliva and that of vegetable diastase, is a subject which also seems to be worthy of investigation, and is now receiving our attention. In the present communication we detail the result of our experiments with the bile and pancreatic amylolytic ferment of one animal only—the pig.'|
