Figure 4: Peripheral levels of glucose (a) and triglycerides (c) before (time zero hours) and several hours after i.v. LPS (25 mg/Kg BW) treatment in different groups of rats. The area under the curve (AUC) of glycemia (b) and triglyceridemia (d) throughout endotoxemia is also displayed. Values are means ± SEM ( rats per group). versus time 0 values in the same group. versus CTR values for a similar time. versus MSG values for a similar time.
