Glucose turnover, clearance and response to insulin were determined in fasted newborn and adult dogs. Fasting levels of glucose and insulin and rates of glucose turnover and clearance were not different between the two groups. Blood glucose correlated with basal glucose turnover in newborn pups but not in adult dogs. Glucose turnover was not related to(More)
Studies indicate an association between both term labour (TL) and preterm labour (PTL) and the presence of uterine inflammatory cytokines and leukocyte infiltration. We hypothesized that peripheral leukocytes are recruited to uterine tissues by locally produced cytokines where they contribute to the initiation of TL and PTL. The cytokine expression profile(More)
Maternal obesity is a risk factor for subsequent fasting hypoglycemia in human infants after birth. To investigate further this problem, we employed an animal model of obesity to study neonatal extrauterine metabolic adaptations in pups of obese and lean rats. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were fed a 'cafeteria diet' to induce obesity prior to and during(More)
