Effects of uracil calculi on cell growth and apoptosis in the BBN- initiated Wistar rat urinary bladder mucosa
(Teratogenesis Carcinogenesis and Mutagenesis, 1999-07-28) [Artigo]
The different potential of initiated and non-initiated urinary bladder mucosa (UBM) to develop neoplasia was quantitatively evaluated in the male Wistar rat. Initiation of carcinogenesis was accomplished with N-butyl-N-(4- ...

Purpose: To evaluate the histological and systemic response to subcutaneous injection of polyethylene gel in rats. Methods: Twenty-one white male rats were divided into 3 groups (G): G1 and G2 received subcutaneous ...
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), ...
The effect of non-antihypertensive doses of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor on myocardial necrosis and hypertrophy in young rats with renovascular hypertension
(International Journal of Experimental Pathology, 1999-05-06) [Artigo]
In renovascular hypertensive rats, low doses of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have been found to prevent myocardial hypertrophy independent of blood pressure level. This finding would suggest humoral rather ...

(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, ...
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 ...
