Glycerol metabolism in severe falciparum malaria.
Gluconeogenesis and liver blood flow (LBF) in severe falciparum malaria were assessed from the clearance and metabolic response to intravenously administered glycerol (0.3 g/kg) and Indocyanine Green ([ICG] 0.4 mg/kg), respectively. Fasting baseline blood glycerol concentrations (mean +/- SD) were significantly higher in acute malaria (133 +/- 65 mumol/L, n = 14), than in convalescence (65 +/- 31 mumol/L, n = 9, P = .01), but basal triacylglycerol concentrations were similar. Estimated glycer...Expand abstract
