Hypoglycaemia and acute stress-induced hyperinsulinaemia in mice infected with Bordetella pertussis or treated with pertussis toxin.

Abstract

Intranasal infection of mice with a sublethal dose of Bordetella pertussis produced hypoglycaemia and hyperinsulinaemia. Exposure to ether vapour did not modify serum insulin concentrations in control mice, but produced a marked transient hyperinsulinaemia in mice infected with B. pertussis. A similar hyperinsulinaemia in infected, but not control, mice was… (More)
