Cardiac autonomic dysfunction in rats chronically treated with anabolic steroid
To date no published data exist regarding the effects of chronic high-dose anabolic-androgenic steroid administration on tonic cardiac autonomic control. The aim of this study was to evaluate, byExpand

Reactive oxygen species generation is modulated by mitochondrial kinases: correlation with mitochondrial antioxidant peroxidases in rat tissues.
Mitochondrial hexokinase (mt-HK) and creatine kinase (mt-CK) activities have been recently proposed to reduce the rate of mitochondrial ROS generation through an ADP re-cycling mechanism. Here, weExpand

Nandrolone decanoate impairs exercise-induced cardioprotection: Role of antioxidant enzymes
The beneficial effects of exercise in reducing the incidence of cardiovascular diseases are well known and the abuse of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) has been associated to cardiovascularExpand

The Anabolic Androgenic Steroid Nandrolone Decanoate Disrupts Redox Homeostasis in Liver, Heart and Kidney of Male Wistar Rats
The abuse of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) may cause side effects in several tissues. Oxidative stress is linked to the pathophysiology of most of these alterations, being involved in fibrosis,Expand

Exercise-induced cardioprotection is impaired by anabolic steroid treatment through a redox-dependent mechanism
High doses of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) impair the cardioprotective effects of exercise against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) insult, possibly through cellular redox imbalance. Here, the effectExpand

Human antibodies with muscarinic activity modulate ventricular repolarization: basis for electrical disturbance.
INTRODUCTION In chronic chagasic patients sudden death has been reported when QT interval dispersion is increased and antibodies with muscarinic-like activity have been demonstrated to triggerExpand

Chronic administration of anabolic androgenic steroid alters murine thyroid function.
PURPOSE The administration of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) to improve athletic performance has increased notably during the past three decades, even among nonathletes. Thyroid function isExpand

Autoantibodies enhance agonist action and binding to cardiac muscarinic receptors in chronic Chagas' disease.
Chronic Chagasic patient immunoglobulins (CChP-IgGs) recognize an acidic amino acid cluster at the second extracellular loop (el2) of cardiac M(2)-muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (M(2)AChRs).Expand
