The excess production of colonic short-chain-fatty-acids (SCFA) has been implicated in the promotion of obesity, but colonic fermentation of dietary-fiber to SCFA may also play a role in p...
The Microbiome trial is a non-randomized, open-label, crossover, multi-center study of p-inulin for patients with hemodialysis-dependent end-stage renal disease.
The study will assess the gastrointestinal tolerability of multiple servings of a novel dietary fiber at three different dose levels in generally healthy men and women. Double-blind contro...
Inulin, a natural renewable polysaccharide resource produced by various plants in nature, has been reported to possess a significant number of diverse pharmaceutical and food applications. Recently, t...
Activation of free fatty acid receptor (FFAR)2 and FFAR3 via colonic short-chain fatty acids, particularly propionate, are postulated to explain observed inverse associations between dietary fiber int...
Although the composition of the gut microbiota is of interest, the functionality, or metabolic activity, of the gut microbiota is of equal importance: the gut microbiota can produce either harmful met...
Gallic acid (GA) was encapsulated with native (NIn), cross-linked (CIn) and acetylated (AIn) inulin by spray-drying. Inulin microparticles were characterized by encapsulation efficiency (EE) and their...
The rheological properties of inulin solution was investigated at different solid content (Xs) ranging from 1 to 12 % at wide range of temperatures ranging from 10 to 85 °C. The rheological paramet...
A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
