Cardiac, metabolic and molecular profiles of sedentary rats in the initial moment of obesityPerfis cardíaco, metabólico e molecular de ratos sedentários no momento inicial da obesidade
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2017-11-01) [Artigo]
Background: Different types of high-fat and/or high-energy diets have been used to induce obesity in rodents. However, few studies have reported on the effects observed at the initial stage of obesity induced by high-fat ...
Classification of different degrees of adiposity in sedentary rats
(Brazilian Journal Of Medical And Biological Research, 2016-01-01) [Artigo]
In experimental studies, several parameters, such as body weight, body mass index, adiposity index, and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, have commonly been used to demonstrate increased adiposity and investigate the ...
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, ...
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. ...
