Author: Vomero, VU

Neto, HS
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 mu g 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. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
