The present study assess long-term effects of high-dose Resveratrol (RSV) on basal and insulin-mediated very low-desity lipoprotein triglyceride (VLDL-TG), palmitate and glucose kinetics, and liver fat content in men with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Participants (n=16) were non-diabetic, upper-body obese (BMI >28 kg/m2 , WHR >0.9) men with NAFLD randomized (1:1) in a double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial to either RSV or placebo (500 mg 3 times daily) for 6 months. Magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy, dual-X-ray absorptiometry and MR imaging assessed liver fat content and body composition, respectively...

PURPOSE: Follicular redox balance is likely to be important for embryo quality during in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the anti-oxidative high desity lipoprotein (HDL) particle is the sole lipoprotein measured in follicular fluid (FF). Therefore, we investigated FF HDL particle components as predictors of embryo quality during IVF. METHODS: Two research follicles collected from each participant were individually tracked, and 103 women having at least one developed embryo were included in the analysis...

BACKGROUND: Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been reported to be beneficial on some components of the metabolic syndrome (MetS). We tested the hypothesis that in hypertensive patients, presence of MetS and its related components is associated with cell membrane content of PUFA, a measure that reflects the dietary intake of these fatty acids. METHODS: In 55 consecutive patients with primary hypertension referred to our university center, we measured anthropometric variables, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure, general biochemistries including plasma lipids, and the fatty acid composition of red blood cell (RBC) membrane by gas chromatography...

NiCo2O4 with higher specific capacitance is an excellent pseudocapacitive material. However, the bulk NiCo2O4 material prevents the achievement of high energy desity and great rate performance due to the limited electroactive surface area. In this work, NiCo2O4 nanosheet arrays were deposited on flexible carbon fabric (CF) as a high-performance electrode for supercapacitors. The NiCo2O4 arrays were constructed by interconnected ultrathin nanosheets (10 nm) with many interparticle pores. The porous feature of NiCo2O4 nanosheets increases the amount of electroactive sites and facilitates the electrolyte penetration...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome (MBS) has been reported as a frequent comorbidity in psoriatic patients. The main pathogenesis is considered to be inflammation in this association. MBS has been investigated in eating disorders as well. While psoriasis has some psychiatric comorbidities, the link between psoriasis, MBS, and eating disorders (EDs) is unknown. METHODS: The study was designed as a cross-sectional, randomized, and controlled trial. A total of 100 patients with psoriasis were included in the study...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of a monophasic oral contraceptive containing 20 microg ethinylestradiol and 150 microg desogestrel (Mercilon) on lipid metabolism in Thai women. METHOD: The study was carried out at the Family Planning Clinic of King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand. Twenty women of fertile age were enrolled and treated with the study oral contraceptives for 12 cycles. Lipid parameters were assessed before treatment and periodically during treatment...

To understand the expression patterns of telomerase activity in different types of acute leukemia(AL) and during remission state, the mono-nuclear cells of different bone marrow samples were isolated by desity gradient centrifugation. Telomerase activity of the samples was assayed by telomeric repeat amplification protocol(TRAP) with the cell extracts and the TRAP products were resolved in PAGE. The results showed that the telomerase activity was at higher levels in the acute leukemia compared with the normal controls...

Cell lines were established from cultures derived from Fischer rat embryos according to the transfer schedule described by Todaro and Green (1963) for mouse 3T3 cells where cell crowding and serum exhaustion were kept to a minimum. Cell growth rate did not decline greatly during the course of successive 3-day transfers. Like 3T3 cells the rat cell lines possess very low saturation desities under standard culture conditions. A clonal cell line with a relatively high plating efficiency as obtained from one of the cell lines, 3YL...
