Intestinal and cardiac inflammatory response shows enhanced endotoxin receptor (CD14) expression in magnesium deficiency


Substance P is elevated in plasma and in other tissues during Mg-deficiency, and was found localised to neuronal C-fibres of cardiac and intestinal tissues, where it could promote neurogenic inflammation. Plasma prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), indicative of systemic inflammation, rose significantly (≥4 fold, p<0.01) after 1 week and remained elevated through week… (More)
