Inadequate utilization of glucose in diabetes mellitus favors diverse metabolic alterations that play a relevant role in the physio-pathology of chronic complications of this disease. Streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats were treated daily with glycine (130 mM as optimal concentration) or taurine (40 mM) for six months. Groups of diabetic rats without(More)
BACKGROUND The obesity has been shown to increase the severity of A/H1N1 infection and the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and organ involvement. METHODS Circulating levels of C-peptide, insulin, glucagon, leptin, acute phase reactants (procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, tissue plasminogen activator, and serum amyloids A and P),(More)
Tolerance to respiratory effects of O3 has been demonstrated for anatomic and functional changes, but information about tolerance to O3-induced airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is scarce. In guinea pigs exposed to air or O3 (0.3 parts/million, 4 h/day, for 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, or 48 days, studied 16-18 h later), pulmonary insufflation pressure changes induced(More)
