Abstract:

Beta-Hydroxybutyrate and free fatty acid concentrations in rat blood were measured during a variety of inflammatory and noninflammatory stresses. Inflammatory stresses included infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae, endotoxemia and induced turpentine abscess. Noninflammatory stresses included fasting plus screen-restraint and fasting plus femoral fracture. Inflammatory stresses caused a marked inhibition of the normal fasting-induced ketosis and a reduction in the level of circulating free fatty acids. Noninflammatory stresses caused no inhibition of the normal fasting-induced ketosis but did cause a reduction in the level of circulating free fatty acids. Author
