OBJECTIVES This study aimed to establish the relationship between total ghrelin, acyl ghrelin, des-acyl ghrelin, leptin, and insulin with anthropometry, gender, and age distribution in healthy children. RESULTS Data from 111 healthy children aged 4 months to 10 years were studied. All the participants underwent a pre-study screening clinical evaluation(More)
The intestinal microbiome is a unique ecosystem that influences metabolism in humans. Experimental evidence indicates that intestinal microbiota can transfer an obese phenotype from humans to mice. Since mothers transmit intestinal microbiota to their offspring during labor, we hypothesized that among vaginal deliveries, maternal body mass index is(More)
Objective: Analyze the changes in the seminiferous epithelium in rats with carbon tetrachloride-induced cirrhosis (CCl 4). Materials and Methods: Forty-eight male Wistar rats aged 45-50 days, weighing 150-180 grams were used. Twenty-two rats underwent CCl 4-induced cirrhosis with CCl 4 0.25 mL/Kg weekly intragastrically once a week, during 10 weeks.(More)
OBJECTIVE Ghrelin, leptin, and insulin concentrations are involved in the control of food intake and they seem to be associated with anorexia-cachexia in cirrhotic patients. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between the nutritional status and fasting ghrelin, leptin and insulin concentrations in pediatric cirrhotic patients. METHODS(More)
