Postprandial Inflammation and Fatty Acids

2014-08-27 03:19:19 | BioPortfolio


The main objective is to elucidate the acute effects of an oral intake of either saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fatty acids on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) whole genome expression of obese and type 2 diabetic obese subjects.


Consumption of high-fat diets can lead to postprandial dyslipidemia, impairment of endothelial function, activation of immune cells and changes in gene expression profiles of immune cells such as peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Recently it was shown that postprandial gene expression profiles of PBMC and plasma triglyceride (TG) and free fatty acid (FFA) responses are dependent on the type of dietary fat consumed (i.e. saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated). Since obese and diabetic subjects usually are in a pro-inflammatory state and have dyslipidemia and endothelial dysfunction we are interested in the effect of different fatty acids in a high load on the PBMC gene expression profiles, plasma cytokine profiles and endothelial function of these subjects.

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 Role of Protein in Regulating Ad Libitum Energy Intake in Humans

The purpose of this project is to determine if protein is less likely to create positive energy balance when added to the diet compared to carbohydrate. To do this, the investigators will ...

Effect of High-carbohydrate or High-monounsaturated Fatty Acids on Blood Pressure: a Meta-analysis of Randomized Clinical Trials

High saturated fat acids diets are associated with elevated blood pressure which is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. For this reason, a change of diet is recommended...

Suppression of Postprandial Monocyte Activation by Blueberries or Docosahexaenoic Acid in Humans

The overall goal of the research study is to determine whether a high-fat meal causes postprandial (after meal) inflammation, and whether eating n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) or ...

Effect of High Monounsaturated Fat Diet on Glycemic Control and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Type 2 Diabetes

The purpose of this proposed randomized, controlled trial is to compare the effects of high monounsaturated fat diets and high carbohydrate diets on body weight, body composition, glycemic...

"Evaluation of the losartan solubility in the biowaiver context by shake-flask method and intrinsic dissolution".

This study aimed at evaluating the shake-flask use as a universal method to evaluate drug solubility in a biowaiver context as proposed by FDA, EMA and ANVISA. The solubility of losartan was determine...

New use for spent coffee ground as an adsorbent for tetracycline removal in water.

Spent coffee grounds (SCG-1 and SCG-2) were used to study the adsorption of tetracycline (TC) antibiotics and the effects of adsorption time, initial pH, amount of adsorbent and ionic strength were de...

Effect of high-carbohydrate or high-monounsaturated fatty acid diets on blood pressure: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Current dietary guidelines for cardiovascular disease risk management recommend restricting intake of saturated fatty acids (SFAs). However, the optimal macronutrient profile, in the context of a low-...

Meal rich in rapeseed oil increases 24-h fat oxidation more than meal rich in palm oil.

The fatty acid composition of the diet has been linked to the prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Compared with monounsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids decrease fat oxidatio...

Photoelectron shake-ups as a probe of molecular symmetry: 4d XPS analysis of I in solution.

A combination of multi-configurational restricted active space calculations with a Dyson orbital formalism has been applied for accurate simulations of 4d photo-electron spectra of the I3- molecular i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Liquid chromatographic techniques which feature high inlet pressures, high sensitivity, and high speed.

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

Tools used in dentistry that operate at high rotation speeds.

Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.

Dietary recommendations that promote reduction in or prevention of high blood pressure. Recommendations include increasing intake of fruits and vegetables, and high-fiber, low-fat foods and reducing the intake of DIETARY SODIUM and high fat foods.
