he effcts of Shan Yao on the Jian pi-Wei were observed. The results were as following:1. Significant inhibition of gastric empty and intestinal propulsion was observed in mice by oral administration.2. A similar action of Shan Yao was observed in antagonsing the spasmodic contration of isolated rat intestine in- duced by acetycholine and barium chloride.3. The effects of Shan Yao on absorptive function of intestine were obeerved in rats. The absorptive function ofintestine was markedly increased. No significant change of cholalic secretion was found in anesthetic rat by duodenaladministration. Significant inhibition of amylase was also obeerved in mice by oral administration.
