Rehabilitation of microsomal enzymes in malnourished rats: comparison of parenteral versus oral refeeding.


Protein malnutrition decreases the activity of drug-metabolizing liver microsomal enzymes. In the first part of our study, we evaluated those enzymes during malnutrition and refeeding. Then we compared the effects of different nutritional patterns on these parameters. During malnutrition (M), rats were fed a 5% casein diet. During refeeding, they were… (More)
