Effect of erythropoietin and testosterone on bone marrow RNA synthesis in rats with protein-energy or protein malnutrition
RNA synthesis was studied in bone marrow of rats with protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) and protein malnutrition (PM) after the administration of erythro-poietin (Epo) and/or testosterone (Te). RNA synthesis appeared slighty ...
Plasma levels of transthyretin and retinol-binding protein in child-a cirrhotic patients in relation to protein-calorie status and plasma amino acids, zinc, vitamin a and plasma thyroid hormones
Transthyretin and retinal-binding protein are sensitive markers of acute protein-calorie malnutrition both for early diagnosis and dietary evaluation. A preliminary study showed that retinal-binding protein is the most ...
Tensile strength and histological changes of abdominal aorta of malnourished rats
The resistance of the abdominal aorta of rats after 6, 7 and 8 weeks of malnutrition, compared with control animals, was evaluated by longitudinal tensiometry. Weakness of this vessel in malnourished rats was demonstrated; ...
