E. e. tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-a release, N0 2 /N0 3 production, in normally fed rabbits, in rabbits after a 24-h fast, and in acutely glucose-loaded, fasting rabbits. A 24-h fast depleted the glycogen stores in liver (measured by ethanol precipitation) compared to fed animals, whereas 4 g glucose infused via the portal vein in these fasting animals increased the glycogen stores within 30 min. After EDTX, fed animals experienced a hypokinetic shock. Lactic acidosis occurred together with hyperglycaemia and elevated PaC0 2 , indicating an increased rate of glycolysis.
