Sepsis has been shown to decrease skeletal muscle glucose oxidation by inhibiting the pyruvate dehydrogenase activity (PDHa) and to increase proteolysis and use of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). The effects of dichloroacetate (DCA), which reverses PDHa inhibition, were studied in skeletal muscle from a septic (S) rat model of intra-abdominal abscess (E.(More)
