Example thesis statements:

  • Does theophylline treatment affect CAT activity in skeletal muscle and liver?

    Theophylline-treated rats had significantly higher CAT activity in skeletal muscle than control rats, whereas liver CAT activity was the same in treated and control rats.

    Theophylline may therefore enhance lipid mobilization from adipose tissues which stimulated carnitine transport into muscle tissue, and thereby increase CAT activity.

  • Does tamoxifen have a favourable effect on serum cholesterol in women with breast cancer?

    Treatment with tamoxifen over 2 years did not affect cholesterol levels in premenopausal women, but was associated with a significant decrease in serum cholesterol in postmenopausal women.

    Tamoxifen is associated with reduced serum cholesterol levels in postmenopausal women, which may reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.
