Canola Oil Multi-center Intervention Trial II

2017-02-17 13:23:21 | BioPortfolio


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.

Optimizing Dietary Fatty Acids to Lower Metabolic Risk Factors Among Canadians

Scientists believe that what happens to dietary fats after they are eaten, especially how they cleared from the blood, affects risks of heart disease and diabetes is more important than me...

Saturated Fat Versus Monounsaturated Fat and Insulin Action

High intakes of saturated fat are associated with diabetes. Our work has shown that the two most common fatty acids in the North American diet, palmitic acid (saturated fat) and oleic aci...

The Effects of Consuming Palm Oil With Different Macronutrient Intakes on Blood Lipids

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of palm oil when consumed as either part of a low carbohydrate diet or a high carbohydrate diet on blood lipids, cardiovascular health...

Low Carbohydrate Portfolio or "Eco-Atkins" Diet

Exchange of the butter, eggs, cheese and meat in the Atkins diet for soy protein foods, other vegetable proteins including gluten and vegetable fats, nuts, avocado, olive and canola oil wi...

Effects of a Western-type Diet on Colorectal Inflammation

This study will look at the inflammatory (changes usually associated with infection/injury to the body) and bowel permeability (bowel's ability to allow contents to enter the body) effects...

Interactions of full-fat canola seed, oat hulls as an insoluble fiber source and pellet temperature for nutrient utilization and growth performance of broiler chickens.

The effectiveness of the addition of oat hulls (OH) as an insoluble fiber for improving nutrient digestibility and performance of birds fed diets containing full-fat canola seed (CS) was studied. A 2 ...

A micromolar concentration of lipo-chitooligosaccharide (Nod Bj V C18:1, MeFuc) regulates the emergence and seed productivity of rapid cycling canola (Brassica napus L.) plants.

The objective of this experiment was to assess whether or not the application of lipo-chitooligosaccharide (Nod Bj V [C18:1, MeFuc]) (LCO) would increase yield factors under conditions that would inhi...

Comparative effects of high oleic acid vs high mixed saturated fatty acid obesogenic diets upon PUFA metabolism in mice.

Emerging evidence indicates that the fatty acid composition of obesogenic diets influences physiologic outcomes. There are scant data regarding how the content of non-essential fatty acids like monoun...

The impact of cerium oxide nanoparticles on the salt stress responses of Brassica napus L.

Dwindling high quality water resources and growing population are forcing growers to irrigate crops with water of high salinity. It is well recognized that salinity negatively affects plant physiology...

Effect of Source of DNA on the Quantitative Analysis of Genetically Engineered Traits Using Digital PCR and Real-Time PCR.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant species cultivated for the seed used as animal feed and as a source of canola cooking oil.

A pattern of food consumption adopted mainly by the people of North America and Western Europe. It is mainly characterized by high intake of MEAT, processed grains, DIETARY SUGARS, DAIRY PRODUCTS, and DIETARY FATS.

A colorless, syrupy, strongly acidic liquid that can form detergents with oleic acid.

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)

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.
