Two experiments were conducted to determine whether high carbohydrate diets or exercise would have a greater influence on certain parameters of lipid metabolism. Male Fischer rats were used in both experiments, separated into exercise and sedentary groups, and fed either a high sucrose (63%) or a high starch (63%) diet. There were no differences in body(More)
In 1988, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) received an NCI/NIH R25 grant to strengthen nutrition-cancer education in the medical school and to provide short cancer-related research experiences for students. Support for the nutrition-cancer curriculum component of the grant was limited to the first five years, while renewal of the(More)
The relationship between urinary excretion of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and total serum cholesterol was evaluated in an epidemiological study of coronary risk factors. The results of this study show statistically significant negative correlation (r = -0.238; P -0.014) between the urinary excretion of DHEA (mg/g creatinine) and total serum cholesterol.(More)
Lipids circulating in the plasma are transported in water soluble form as lipid-protein complexes. Lipoproteins can be classified according to size, density, electrophoretic mobility and protein composition. The ability of low density lipoproteins and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) to form complexes with different polyanions has been also used as a(More)
An automated procedure for the determination of beta-plus-pre-beta-lipoprotein cholesterol is described and evaluated for mass screening of hyperlipoproteinemias. It is shown that this method fulfills the requirements for an ideal method for primary screening: it can be used in non-fasting samples, is capable of detecting hyperlipoproteinemias characterized(More)
The ASCN Committee on Medical/Dental School and Residency Nutrition Education conducted a series of activities to establish guidelines for nutrition core content in a medical school curriculum. These activities included mail surveys of medical-nutrition educators and a representative group of medical school curriculum administrators and a national consensus(More)
