Of the five sub-phenotypes defining metabolic syndrome, all are known to have strong genetic components (typically 50–80% of population variation). Studies defining genetic predispositions have typically focused on older populations with metabolic syndrome and/or type 2 diabetes. We hypothesized that the study of younger populations would mitigate many(More)
The primary objective of this research was to test the hypothesis that low level lead (Pb) exposure during early life leads to disruption in blood-brain barrier (BBB) function in the young rat. Newborn rats received lead via milk from lactating dams that were drinking water containing 0.1% lead acetate Pb(Ac)2. Pups were weaned to, and maintained on, 0.1%(More)
Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) receptor antagonists have gained much attention for their potential to treat inflammatory and neuropathic pain. However, systemic administration of TRPV1 antagonists induces a period of hyperthermia, a potential liability for small molecule development. Here we characterize the effects of the TRPV1 antagonist(More)
