The aim of our study was to analyse the protective effects of different alpha-tocopherol analogues 1) against fibrillations induced by an ischemia-reperfusion sequence, and 2) to further investigate in vitro the radical scavenging properties of these analogues by two sensitive methods. Concerning 1: isolated rat hearts underwent 10 min of coronary ligation(More)
Fifty right-handed females thought about answer to verbal and spatial reasoning questions asked by a questioner seated either in front of or behind them. Ss in the questioner-in-front condition predominantly exhibited left lateral eye movements regardless of the question type, while the lateral eye movements of the questioner-in back Ss showed no(More)
PURPOSE To examine potential detrimental long-term effects of acute diet-induced weight loss on visceral adiposity, insulin resistance, cortisol, and adipokines in obese individuals at risk for type-2 diabetes. DATA SOURCES Anthropometric measures (height, weight, waist circumference), self-report instruments, abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan, and(More)
Free radical species have been implicated as important agents involved in myocardial ischemic and reperfusion injuries. Superoxide is capable of mobilizing iron from ferritin and the released iron can cause hydroxyl formation from H2O2. The aim of this study was to evaluate the time-dependent increase in lipid peroxidation assessed by plasma thiobarbituric(More)
