Previous studies have shown varied responses to the effects of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) on glucose and lipid metabolism. To elucidate possible causes for this variation, the present study compared sequential changes in plasma glucose, lactic acid, triglyceride (TG), free fatty acids (FFA), and plasma insulin levels in 1.5- and 16-month-old, normal, fed, male rats, 1 to 6 hours after different doses of intravenous (IV) TNF. In addition, assessment was made of TNF injected intraperitoneally… CONTINUE READING
