Abstract:To evaluate the effect of creatine supplementation in the diet of rats subjected to ischemia and reperfusion of hind limbs. Methods: Eighteen male Wistar rats were randomized to receive dietary creatine supplementation (G1) or no supplementation (G2), before being subjected to 4 h of ischemia followed by 4 h of reperfusion. In addition, 10 rats (G3) underwent the same surgical procedure, without ischemia, but with supplementation. After reperfusion, kidney and musculature were evaluated for histological damage… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
