A comparative study of myocardial function and morphology during fasting/refeeding and food restriction in rats
(Cardiovascular Pathology, 2010-09-01) [Artigo]
Background: This study compared the influence of fasting/refeeding cycles and food restriction on rat myocardial performance and morphology. Methods: Sixty-day-old male Wistar rats were submitted to food ad libitum (C), ...
A Comparative Genotoxicity Study of a Supraphysiological Dose of Triiodothyronine (T3) in Obese Rats Subjected to Either Calorie-Restricted Diet or Hyperthyroidism
(PLOS ONE, 2013-02-28) [Artigo]
This study was designed to determine the genotoxicity of a supraphysiological dose of triiodothyronine (T3) in both obese and calorie-restricted obese animals. Fifty male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to one of the ...
Cardiac remodeling in a rat model of diet-induced obesity
(Canadian Journal of Cardiology, 2010-10-01) [Resumo]
The mechanisms by which diet-induced obesity cause remodeling and cardiac dysfunction are still unknown. Interstitial collagen and myocardial ultrastructure are important in the development of left ventricular hypertrophy, ...
Does propofol and isoflurane protect the kidney against ischemia/reperfusion injury during transient hyperglycemia?
(Acta Cirúrgica Brasileira, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
PURPOSE: To study the effect of isoflurane (Iso) or propofol (Prop) anesthesia on renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) during transient hyperglycemia. METHODS: Thirty six rats were randomly assigned into six groups of ...
Obesity Preserves Myocardial Function During Blockade of the Glycolytic Pathway
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2014-10-01) [Artigo]
Background: Obesity is defined by excessive accumulation of body fat relative to lean tissue. Studies during the last few years indicate that cardiac function in obese animals may be preserved, increased or diminished. ...
Nephrocalcinosis induced by hyperoxaluria in rats
(Acta Cirúrgica Brasileira, 2013-07-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: To investigate nephrocalcinosis due to hyperoxaluria induced by two different inducing agents in rats. Methods: Forty Sprague-Dawley male rats were randomly distributed into four groups: Group1 (Clinical control, ...
