This study was undertaken to determine if visfatin is involved in the inflammation or apoptosis introduced by LPS in rats. Forty 8-week old Wistar rats were divided into four groups (n=10 in each group) and injected with saline, visfatin, LPS and visfatin+LPS co-stimulated via caudal vein. The duodenum, jejunum and ileum were harvested from all the rats. Compared to the saline treated group, visfatin significantly increased the number of TUNEL-positive apoptotic cells and the expression of… CONTINUE READING
