The article presents a study which investigates the effects of co-exposures of cadmium and ethanol on the metabolism of rats. The study uses various methods such as determining the protein contents and inorganic phosphorus on the liver and kidney of the subjects, and estimation of total hepatic metallothionein. It reveals the connections of cadmium on the retardation of weight gain of the rats, and how ethanol and cadmium affects the serum transaminases of the rats.

    Gastrectomy (GX) was carried out in the male rat according to the Longmire and the Roux-en-Y procedure. The focus of the postoperative investigations was to evaluate the influence of post-GX morphological changes occurring at the site of two types of end-to-end esophagojejunal anastomosis (with...

    The acute toxicity study of the leaves of Sphenocentrum jollyanum (SJ) showed no toxicity when administered up to 11g/kg body weight orally while intra-peritoneal (IP) administration produced dose dependent mortality with median acute toxicity (LD50) of 1445.4 mg/kg. In sub-chronic study, the...

    Cadmium (Cd), a widely distributed toxic trace metal, has been shown to accumulate in liver after long- and short-term exposure. Cd (2 mg/kg/day CdCl2) was intraperitoneally given to rats for eight days. Vitamin C (250 mg/kg/day) + vitamin E (250 mg/kg/day) + sodium selenate (0.25 mg/kg/day)...

    We examined the sensitivity of metallothionein (MT)-III null mice to cadmium (Cd)-induced acute hepatotoxicity. MT-I/II null mice were also used to compare Cd toxicities between MT-III null mice and MT-I/II null mice. Male MT-I/II null mice, MT-III null mice and wild-type mice were given s.c....

    Background: Energy and Zinc (Zn) deficiencies have been associated with nutritional related growth retardation as well as growth hormone (GH) resistance. In this study, the relationship between suboptimal energy and/or Zn intake and growth in rats and their response to immunoreactive exogenous...

    Recent evidence suggests that the free amino-terminal fragment of procalcitonin (N-PCT) plays a role in the central control of feeding behavior and energy homeostasis. However, little is known about the mechanisms through which N-PCT works. Here we report that intracerebroventricular...

    Background: There are only few studies documenting the long-term outcome of aorto-caval fistula (ACF) in rats, a model of volume overload heart failure (HF). The aim of the present study was to describe HF-related morbidity and mortality, and to examine the relation between cardiac hypertrophy...

    Atypical antipsychotic drugs such as Olanzapine induce weight gain and metabolic changes associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. The mechanisms underlying the metabolic side-effects of these centrally acting drugs are still unknown to a large extent. We compared the effects of...
