Male and female C57BL/6J mice, initially 19 days old, consumed a complete purified diet either ad libitum (age-matched control) or in restricted daily quantities (energy deficiency), or they consumed a purified isocaloric low-protein diet ad libitum (protein and energy deficit). In a 14-day experimental period, malnourished animals lost approximately 1.5% of their initial body weight daily. Zero-time controls, 19 days old, were also included in the study. Serum levels of Th2-type (IgG1 and IgE… CONTINUE READING
