Cyclosporin A (CYA), when administered to CD-1 mice treated with a subdiabetogenic dose of Streptozocin (STZ), exacerbated the STZ-induced insulitis and elevated the plasma glucose levels, parallel to a reduction of the insulin content of the pancreas. The possible mechanisms of CYA-mediated aggravation of STZ-induced diabetes are discussed.
In this study, we investigated the suppressive effect of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (DL-PCBs) transfer from the feed to the eggs of laying hens by using activated carbon as a feed additive. Four groups of six hens (White Leghorn egg-layers; age, 11weeks) were(More)
