Myocardial involvement is frequently associated with various types of muscular dystrophy and Thallium-201 scintigraphy can show regional myocardial perfusion abnormalities in patients with muscular dystrophy. Myocardial fatty acid metabolism can now be imaged using a radioiodinated branched fatty acid (123I-BMIPP). The present study evaluates myocardial(More)

We have previously reported that gamma-tocopherol (gamma-Toc) displays a natriuretic potency in rats fed a NaCl diet and administered 20 mg gamma-Toc. In this study, we investigated whether gamma-Toc has natriuretic potency at a dose lower or higher than 20 mg in rats given a NaCl diet. Male rats were fed a control diet or a NaCl diet and administered(More)
