Modulation of insulin resistance in ovariectomized rats by endurance exercise training and estrogen replacement.
Estrogen is known to play a role in fat metabolism, but its role in carbohydrate metabolism remains controversial. We investigated alterations in carbohydrate and fat metabolism after prolongedExpand

Specific immunomodulatory and secretory activities of stevioside and steviol in intestinal cells.
Stevioside, isolated from Stevia rebaudiana, is a commercial sweetener. It was previously demonstrated that stevioside attenuates NF-kappaB-dependent TNF-alpha and IL-1beta synthesis inExpand

Acute toxicity of stevioside, a natural sweetener, and its metabolite, steviol, in several animal species.
The acute toxicity of stevioside and steviol (a product of enzymatic hydrolysis of stevioside) was investigated in three animal species including rat, mouse and hamster. The susceptibility toExpand

Acute and subacute toxicity of piperine in mice, rats and hamsters.
Piperine is acutely toxic to mice, rats and hamsters. The LD50 values for a single i.v., i.p., s.c., i.g. and i.m. administration of piperine to adult male mice were 15.1, 43, 200, 330 and 400 mg/kgExpand

Anti-Inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Activities of Stevioside and Its Metabolite Steviol on THP-1 Cells.
Stevioside, a natural noncaloric sweetener isolated from Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, possesses anti-inflammatory and antitumor promoting properties; however, no information is available to explain itsExpand

Inhibitory effect of steviol, a metabolite of stevioside, on glucose absorption in everted hamster intestine in vitro.
The effects of stevioside and steviol (a product of enzymatic hydrolysis of stevioside) on intestinal glucose absorption were examined in hamster jejunum. By using the everted sac technique, we foundExpand

Effects of stevioside and steviol on intestinal glucose absorption in hamsters.
The effects of stevioside and steviol (a product of enzymatic hydrolysis of stevioside) on intestinal glucose absorption were examined in the hamster jejunum in vitro. By using the jejunal ringsExpand

Developmental toxicity of steviol, a metabolite of stevioside, in the hamster.
The developmental toxicity of steviol, a metabolite of stevioside, was studied in hamsters. Pregnant hamsters were intubated with steviol at dose levels of 0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1.0 g/kg BW/day onExpand

Effect of stevioside on PAH transport by isolated perfused rabbit renal proximal tubule.
Stevioside, a non-caloric sweetening agent, is used as a sugar substitute. An influence of stevioside on renal function has been suggested, but little is known about its effect on tubular function.Expand
