In vivo and in vitro effects of cadmium on adult rat brain total antioxidant status, acetylcholinesterase, (Na+, K+)-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase activities: protection by L-cysteine.
This study was undertaken in order to investigate a) the short- and long-term in vivo effects of cadmium (Cd) on brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE), (Na+, K+)-ATPase activities in adult rats, b) theExpand

Thyroid hormone and recovery of cardiac function in patients with acute myocardial infarction: a strong association?
OBJECTIVE This study investigated whether changes in thyroid hormone (TH) in plasma are associated with the recovery of cardiac function in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). PreviousExpand

Propylthiouracil-induced hypothyroidism is associated with increased tolerance of the isolated rat heart to ischaemia-reperfusion.
The present study investigated the response of the hypothyroid heart to ischaemia-reperfusion. Hypothyroidism was induced in Wistar rats by oral administration of propylthiouracil (0.05%) for 3 weeksExpand

Thyroid hormone improves postischaemic recovery of function while limiting apoptosis: a new therapeutic approach to support hemodynamics in the setting of ischaemia-reperfusion?
Although it has long been recognized that thyroid hormone is an effective positive inotrope, its efficacy in supporting hemodynamics in the acute setting of ischaemia and reperfusion (R) withoutExpand

Thyroid hormone improves the mechanical performance of the post-infarcted diabetic myocardium: a response associated with up-regulation of Akt/mTOR and AMPK activation.
OBJECTIVE Thyroid hormone (TH) is shown to be protective against cardiac and pancreatic injury. Thus, this study explored the potential effects of TH treatment on the functional status of theExpand

Thyroid Hormone and Cardiac Disease: From Basic Concepts to Clinical Application
Nature's models of regeneration provide substantial evidence that a natural healing process may exist in the heart. Analogies existing between the damaged myocardium and the developing heart stronglyExpand

Changes in Thyroid Hormone Receptors After Permanent Cerebral Ischemia in Male Rats
Thyroid hormones (TH) and receptors (TRs) may play an important role in the pathophysiology of acute cerebral ischemia. In the present study, we sought to determine whether serum triodothyronineExpand
