Abstract:

The goal of this study was to determine the effect of PFDA on hepatic glucose transport in perfused rat livers using a paired-tracer first-pass extraction technique. This work was performed in collaboration with LCDR John Wyman, Ph.D, of the Naval Medical Research Institute, Wright-Patterson AFB. Carol learned the perfusion techniques, coordinated all aspects of the data acquisition, and was solely responsible for data processing. This project was described in detail in the Annual Report for AFOSR-90-0148 which was submitted January 5, 1994. Therefore, only a very brief discussion of the work is given herein.
