Abstract: We evaluated the effects of deflazacort (DFZ) on muscle regeneration following Bothrops jararacussu envenoming. Tibialis anterior muscle from adult mice was injected with 80 μg of venom. Animals received DFZ during 6 days. Seven and 60 days after envenoming, DFZ lead to a decrease in the total number of muscle fibers and an increase in interstitial fibrosis. We conclude that DFZ treatment may aggravate the loss of muscle mass after B. jararacussu envenoming. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
