Effects of Hi-maize Resistant Starch on Insulin Sensitivity

2014-08-27 03:16:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of a dietary fiber, resistant starch, on insulin sensitivity. Low insulin sensitivity is a risk factor for some diseases including type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This study will show if consuming resistant starch can help improve insulin sensitivity in overweight and obese people.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Electrophoresis in which a starch gel (a mixture of amylose and amylopectin) is used as the diffusion medium.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.

The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
