Figure 2 shows the relationship between mean EB and ketone body concentrations.
This study shows, elevated levels of ketone body concentrations during the period of NEB (up to 4 week).
Supplementation with the ketone body, BHB has come under much scrutiny in the context of weight loss claims.
Research demonstrates that various G-protein-coupled HCA receptors serve as targets for endogenous ketone and ketone body ligands .
Prognostic implications of postoperative suppression of arterial ketone body ratio: time factor involved in the suppression of hepatic mitochondria reduction state.
The clinical significance of the arterial ketone body ratio as an early predictor of graft viability in human liver transplantation.
In all cases, the organism reacts by an increasing ketone body
production because of the decreased availability of glucose and therefore making the alternative fuel, ketone bodies, necessary as brain fuel or as energy substrate for other tissues, especially muscle [1, 8].
Although male and female mice can exhibit differences in their metabolic profiles and thus different plasma glucose and ketone body
levels [24, 25], male mice were exclusively used in this study to minimize any potential confound associated with metabolic changes seen in females during the different stages of the oestrus cycle .
concentration was measured using the method described by Reid (1960).
However, activation of mitochondrial ACAT is associated with elevated ketone body
levels (Treberg, 2006).
