Serum adipokine levels in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
Tomato lycopene supplementation modulates leptin, resistin and IL-6 levels in diet-induced obese rats
(Federation Amer Soc Exp Biol, 2013-04-01)
Experimental hyperthyroidism decreases gene expression and serum levels of adipokines in obesity
Aims. To analyze the influence of hyperthyroidism on the gene expression and serum concentration of leptin, resistin, and adiponectin in obese animals. Main Methods. Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into two groups: ...
Lycopene supplementation modulates plasma concentrations and epididymal adipose tissue mRNA of leptin, resistin and IL-6 in diet-induced obese rats
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-11-28)
Obesity is characterised by chronic low-grade inflammation, and lycopene has been reported to display anti-inflammatory effects. However, it is not clear whether lycopene supplementation modulates adipokine levels in vivo ...
NaF treatment increases TNF-alpha and resistin concentrations and reduces insulin signal in rats
(Elsevier B.V. Sa, 2012-04-01)
The use of fluoridated products has significantly contributed to the reduction in rates of dental caries. However, excessive sodium fluoride (NaF) intake promotes inhibition of glycolysis, decrease in insulin secretion, ...
Enterohormonal changes after digestive adaptation: Five-year results of a surgical proposal to treat obesity and associated diseases
Background Recent physiological knowledge allows the design of bariatric procedures that aim at neuroendocrine changes instead of at restriction and malabsorption. Digestive adaptation is a surgical technique for obesity ...
Efeitos de um programa de treinamento de força sobre variáveis da composição corporal, concentrações plasmáticas de leptina e resistina e qualidade de vida em mulheres pós-menopáusicas
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosBRUFSCarPrograma de Pós-graduação em Ciências Fisiológicas, 2010-05-14)
Objective: To determine the effect of a resistance training program on body composition andplasmatic concentrations of leptin and resistin in pos-menopausal women.Methods: Twenty-three post-menopausal women (mean age = ...
Supraphysiological Triiodothyronine Doses Diminish Leptin and Adiponectin Gene Expression, but do not Alter Resistin Expression in Calorie Restricted Obese Rats
(Georg Thieme Verlag Kg, 2011-06-01)
Thyroid hormones regulate energy balance and act on adipokines. However, while it is unclear what the effects are of calorie restriction and high doses of triiodothyronine (T(3)) on adipokines in obesity, thyroid hormones ...
