We have reported that blood pressure was elevated in 3-month-old rats whose mothers were Fe-restricted during pregnancy. These animals also had improved glucose tolerance and decreased serum triacylglycerol. The aim of the present study was to determine whether these effects of maternal nutritional restriction, present in these animals at 3 months of age,(More)
EDITORIAL SYNOPSIS Endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function was studied in a small group of controlled patients and in patients with chronic pancreatitis and with mild diabetes mellitus. Patients with chronic pancreatitis showed impaired production of pancreatic enzyme and inadequate production of insulin but no close correlation between exocrine and(More)
Pancreatic exocrine function tests and plasma insulin curves after a glucose load have been performed in 74 patients, 32 with no significant pancreatic disease, 31 with various disorders of the pancreas, and 11 with postmature diabetes mellitus. Exocrine function was impaired in all patients with chronic pancreatitis and chronic relapsing pancreatitis,(More)

The authors describe a radioimmunoassay for insulin employing a solid phase reagent of guinea pig insulin antibody pre-precipitated with rabbit antiguinea pig γ-globulin serum. Sensitisation of the assay by preincubation with unknown or standard prior to addition of radiolabelled hormone is described. The assay proved suitable for the development of a(More)
