Oxidative state of the liver of rats with adjuvant-induced arthritis.
Adjuvant-induced arthritis is an experimental immunopathology in rats that is often used as a model for studying autoimmune chronic inflammation and inflammatory cachexia. In these animals oxidativeExpand

Effect of Stevia rebaudiana on glucose tolerance in normal adult humans.
The effect of aqueous extracts of Stevia rebaudiana leaves on a glucose tolerance test was investigated in 16 normal volunteers. Aqueous extracts of 5 grams of leaves were administered to volunteersExpand

The metabolic changes caused by dexamethasone in the adjuvant-induced arthritic rat
The action of orally administered dexamethasone (0.2 mg kg−1 day−1) on metabolic parameters of adjuvant-induced arthritic rats was investigated. The body weight gain and the progression of theExpand

Effects of fusaric acid on rat liver mitochondria.
The effects of fusaric acid on hepatic energy metabolism were measured. Three experimental systems were employed: (a) Intact rat liver mitochondria; (b) freeze-thawing disrupted mitochondria; and (c)Expand

Zonation of gluconeogenesis from lactate and pyruvate in the rat liver studied by means of anterograde and retrograde bivascular perfusion.
Gluconeogenesis from lactate and pyruvate and associated parameters were investigated in the bivascularly and hemoglobin-free perfused rat liver. The substrates were infused either via the portalExpand

The actions of fisetin on glucose metabolism in the rat liver
Fisetin is a flavonoid dietary ingredient found in the smoke tree (Cotinus coggyria) and in several fruits and vegetables. The effects of fisetin on glucose metabolism in the isolated perfused ratExpand

Naproxen affects Ca2+ fluxes in mitochondria, microsomes and plasma membrane vesicles
Abstract There is substantial evidence that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) affect cellular processes regulated by Ca2+ ions, including the metabolic responses of the liver toExpand
