Conjugated linoleic acid and atherosclerosis in rabbits.
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) consists of a series of positional and geometric dienoic isomers of linoleic acid that occur naturally in foods. CLA exhibits antioxidant activity in vitro and in vivo.Expand

Dietary conjugated linoleic acid reduces plasma lipoproteins and early aortic atherosclerosis in hypercholesterolemic hamsters.
Conjugated linoleic acid is a collective term used to designate a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid in which the double bonds are conjugated. Unlike linoleic acid, there isExpand

Lymphatic recovery, tissue distribution, and metabolic effects of conjugated linoleic acid in rats.
Abstract Apparent lymphatic recovery of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in rats was considerably lower than for linoleic acid, approximately 55% versus 80% for 24 hr, although the distribution inExpand

Antimutagenic and some other effects of conjugated linoleic acid
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a collective term for positional and geometric isomers of octadecadienoic acid in which the double bonds are conjugated, i.e. contiguous. CLA was identified as aExpand

Rice bran oil and oryzanol reduce plasma lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations and aortic cholesterol ester accumulation to a greater extent than ferulic acid in hypercholesterolemic
Our laboratory has reported that the hypolipidemic effect of rice bran oil (RBO) is not entirely explained by its fatty acid composition. Because RBO has a greater content of the unsaponifiables,Expand

Conjugated linoleic acid isomer effects in atherosclerosis: Growth and regression of lesions
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of octadecadienoic acid, has been shown to inhibit experimentally induced atherosclerosis in rabbits and also to causeExpand
