Building on the findings from the investigators previous study, COMIT I, the purpose of the COMIT II study is to supplement the DEXA measurement of body composition with a supplementary DEXA measurement of visceral adipose tissue and to specifically target the impact of oleic acid consumption on body composition as the primary objective. COMIT II also will include analysis of fatty acid ethanolamines (FAEs) and their precursors to elucidate the mechanisms by which canola oil may be modifying body composition, measurement of endothelial function, inflammatory, adiposity and insulin sensitivity biomarkers, and genetic analyses.

The cabbage aphid is a significant pest worldwide in brassica crops, including canola. This pest has shown considerable ability to develop resistance to insecticides, so these should only be applied o...
Seven commercially available DNA extraction kits were compared with a cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) method to determine the suitability of the extracted DNA for RainDrop digital PCR (dPCR) and...
A plant species cultivated for the seed used as animal feed and as a source of canola cooking oil.
A colorless, syrupy, strongly acidic liquid that can form detergents with oleic acid.
A course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
An unsaturated fatty acid that is the most widely distributed and abundant fatty acid in nature. It is used commercially in the preparation of oleates and lotions, and as a pharmaceutical solvent. (Stedman, 26th ed)
