Table 2 summarizes the effects of 8-week LLLI on body mass and gastrocnemius muscle weights.
Bcl-2 and IGF-1 protein expression in the gastrocnemius of the LLLI group are significantly elevated, while BAX expression is significantly inhibited, compared to the CON group (P < 0.05).
The mRNA contents of SIRT1, PGC-1[alpha], TFAM, NRF1, and SOD2 in the gastrocnemius of LLLI group are significantly upregulated compared to the CON group (P < 0.05).
LLLI Effects on Age-Related Loss of Muscle Mass in Aged Rats.
It has been suggested that the age-related loss of muscle mass maybe inhibited by LLLI .
LLLI Effects on Apoptotic Signal in Aging Skeletal Muscle.
Theoretically, the apoptotic signal in aging skeletal muscle may be partly wiped out by the LLLI .
LLLI recommended that UNICEF promote breastfeeding mother-to-mother support on all fronts, from national breastfeeding commissions to health care systems.
LLLI maintains a toll-free breastfeeding help line (1-800-LA LECHE), and many local groups also maintain help lines.
