Conjugated linoleic acid and cardiac health: Oxidative stress and energetic metabolism in standard and sucrose-rich diets
(European Journal of Pharmacology, 2008-01-28) [Artigo]
Studies on conjugated linoleic acid ingestion and its effect on cardiac tissue are necessary for the safe utilization of this compound as supplement for weight loss. Male Wistar 24-rats were divided into four groups (n = ...
Diet compounds, glycemic index and obesity-related cardiac effects
(International Journal of Cardiology, 2008-02-20) [Artigo]
Background: Diet compounds may influence obesity-related cardiac oxidative stress and metabolic sifting. Carbohydrate-rich diet may be disadvantageous from fat-rich diet to cardiac tissue and glycemic index rather than ...
Impact of the training program on lipid profile and cardiac health
(Biological Research, 2004-01-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of training programs on serum lipid profile and myocardial oxidative stress. Male Wistar rats (2 mo-old) were divided into three groups (n=8): sedentary (S), loadless ...
Butyl hydroxytoluene (BHT)-induced oxidative stress: Effects on serum lipids and cardiac energy metabolism in rats
(Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology, 2006-01-01) [Artigo]
Recent lines of evidences indicate that several pathological conditions, as cardiovascular diseases, are associated with oxidative stress. In order to validate a butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT)-induced experimental model ...
Energy Expenditure, Lipid Profile, Oxidative Stress, and Cardiac Energy Metabolism After Growth Hormone Treatment in Obese Young Rats
(Hormone and Metabolic Research, 2010-06-01) [Artigo]
Obesity is rampant in modern society and growth hormone (GH) could be useful as adjunct therapy to reduce the obesity-induced cardiovascular damage. To investigate GH effects on obesity, initially 32 male Wistar rats were ...
Toxicity of dietary restriction of fat enriched diets on cardiac tissue
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2002-12-01) [Artigo]
The present study examines the effects of caloric restriction in cardiac tissue evaluation markers of oxidative stress. High-fat dietary restrictions can have a long-term impact on cardiac health. Dietary restriction of ...
