Relative antiinflammatory and immunosuppressive potencies of glucocorticoids (GC) were previously well defined. Nonetheless, GC also regulate cell proliferation and programmed death (apoptosis). The aim of this study was to determine the relative potency of different GC on the modulation of cell survival. The GC-sensitive lymphoblast cell line CEM-c7/14 was(More)
Hyperglycemia leads to the formation of free radicals and advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). Antioxidants can reduce the level of protein glycation and DNA damage. In this study, we compared the levels of vitamin C intake, which is among the most abundant antioxidants obtained from diet, with the levels of fasting plasma glucose (FPG), glycated(More)
The influence of Eu3+ on lipid biosynthesis of female rat liver was studied. 24 hours after the intramuscular injection of europium chloride an infiltration of triacylglycerols on the liver was observed but cholesterol content was unaffected. These results demonstrate that europium produces the same effect as other lanthanides with a lower atomic number ;(More)
