From: A higher response of plasma neuropeptide Y, growth hormone, leptin levels and extracellular glycerol levels in subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue to Acipimox during exercise in patients with bulimia nervosa: single-blind, randomized, microdialysis study

  8. Dialysate glycerol concentration in subcutaneous (sc) abdominal adipose tissue (AT) during baseline conditions (microvials with interstitial fluid samples were collected at 45-min intervals), during exercise (at 45-min interval, 2 W/kg of lean body mass [LBM]), and at the last 45-min interval before ending 90-min post-exercise recovering phase alone or together with Acipimox (Aci) administration in the controls (C) (n = 8) and bulimia nervosa patients (BN) (n = 8). Values are means ± S.E.M. n = the number of subjects.
