Plasma lipid profile of experimentally induced hyperlipidemic New Zealand white rabbits is not affected by resveratrol
(Journal of Applied Research, 2009-08-12) [Artigo]
Hyperlipidemia is well recognized as an important risk factor in the development of atherosclerosis. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are components of cholesterol that are highly associated to an increased risk of cardiovascular ...
ACAO DO CAPTOPRIL SOBRE O EDEMA PULMONAR AGUDO ADRENALINICO
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 1991-12-01) [Artigo]
Effect of ambient temperature and thyroid hormones on food intake by pigs
(Physiology and Behavior, 1986-01-01) [Artigo]
Food intake and plasma thyroid hormone levels (T4 and T3) were higher in pigs acclimated to cold (12°) than hot (32°) environments. The exposure of cold pigs to hot ambient temperature decreased food intake and plasma T4 ...
Ionotropic but not metabotropic glutamatergic receptors in the locus coeruleus modulate the hypercapnic ventilatory response in unanaesthetized rats
(Acta Physiologica, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Aim: Central chemoreceptors are important to detect changes of CO2/H+, and the Locus coeruleus (LC) is one of the many putative central chemoreceptor sites. Here, we studied the contribution of LC glutamatergic receptors ...
Morphology of oesophagus and crop of the partrigde Rhynchotus rufescens (Tiramidae)
(Acta Scientiarum: Biological Sciences, 2006-04-01) [Artigo]
Twenty adult partridges Rhynchotus rufescens were used to study the morphology of oesophagus and crop. Materials to the morphologic study were collected and lengths of the oesophagus and of the crop were measured. For ...
Characterization of the antinociceptive and sedative effect of amitraz in horses
(Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 1998-11-07) [Artigo]
Amitraz, an acaricide used to control ectoparasites in animals has a complex pharmacological activity, including α2-adrenergic agonist action. The purpose of this research was to investigate the possible antinociceptive ...
Fever response induced by intravenous and intracerebrovascular injection of pyrogen in thyroidectomised and protein-calorie malnourished rabbits
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 1990-02-14) [Artigo]
The development of a fever in response to intravenous (IV, 1.5 μg/kg body mass) and intracerebroventricular (ICV, 1.5 μg/animal) injections of Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was studied in control, thyroidectomised ...
Effects of fasting, noradrenaline and glucose tolerance test on free fatty acids and blood glucose in thyroid-deficient pigs
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology B: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 1983-01-01) [Artigo]
Food intake and thermic effect of feeding in thyroid-deficient pigs
(Physiology and Behavior, 1984-01-01) [Artigo]
Short and long-term thyroidectomy and Methimazole treatment reduced food intake in young growing pigs. The thermic effect of feeding assessed by the increment in rectal temperature after the beginning of food ingestion was ...
The development of a febrile response to pyrogen in the thyroid-deficient rabbit
(Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, 1987-01-01) [Artigo]
The development of the febrile response to E. coli lipopolysaccharide (1.5 μg/kg, i.v.) in thyroid-deficient rabbits has been studied. Twenty-eight New Zealand White rabbits weighing 2.1-2.3 kg were used. Hypothyroidism ...
