Cardiac Metabolism in Heart Failure: Implications Beyond ATP Production
The heart has a high rate of ATP production and turnover that is required to maintain its continuous mechanical work. Perturbations in ATP-generating processes may therefore affect contractileExpand

Regional Economic Integration and Its Impacts on Growth, Poverty and Income Distribution: The Case of Vietnam
AbstractTrade liberalization and regional economic integration have recently accelerated in East Asia, where several free trade areas have been established or are under negotiation. After acquiringExpand

Research Note: Empirical Assessment of the Tourism-Led Growth Hypothesis — The Case of Vietnam:
This study examines the tourism-led growth hypothesis (TLGH) in Vietnam during the period 1992�2011. The authors use two-step procedures to test the hypothesis. They first apply cointegration and theExpand

Myocardial infarction in rats causes partial impairment in insulin response associated with reduced fatty acid oxidation and mitochondrial gene expression.
OBJECTIVE Myocardial infarction leads to contractile dysfunction. In patients with diabetes, impaired contractility has been associated with the loss of insulin effects and mitochondrial dysfunction.Expand

The E-Wave Deceleration Rate E/DT Outperforms the Tissue Doppler-Derived Index E/e' in Characterizing Lung Remodeling in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction
Background Diastolic dysfunction in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) may result in pulmonary congestion and lung remodeling. We evaluated the usefulness of major diastolicExpand

Abstract 15431: Pressure Overload Causes PTP1B Activation – a Possible Mechanism for Heart Failure Associated Insulin Resistance
Cardiac insulin resistance has been suggested as possible cause for contractile dysfunction. We investigated cardiac insulin sensitivity (cIR) in rats developing pressure overload (PO) heart failureExpand

Triheptanoin Alleviates Ventricular Hypertrophy and Improves Myocardial Glucose Oxidation in Rats With Pressure Overload.
OBJECTIVE Cardiac hypertrophy is characterized by changes in substrate utilization and activity of the Krebs cycle. We assessed the effects of triheptanoin, an odd-chain fat that might support theExpand

Glucagon-like peptide-1 reduces contractile function and fails to boost glucose utilization in normal hearts in the presence of fatty acids.
UNLABELLED GLP-1 and exendin-4, which are used as insulin sensitizers or weight reducing drugs, were shown to improve glucose uptake in the heart. However, the direct effects of GLP-1 or exendin-4 onExpand

Myocardial performance (Tei) index is normal in diastolic and systolic heart failure induced by pressure overload in rats.
AIMS Myocardial performance index (MPI), or Tei index, is a Doppler echocardiographic parameter defined as the sum of the isovolumic contraction and relaxation times divided by the ejection time. ItExpand
