Protective and antioxidant properties of highly purified oat β-glucans of high and low molecular weight in liver and stomach were evaluated. The novelty in approach was to determine whether dietary β-glucans affect the parameters of oxidative stress directly in the stomach and indirectly in the liver, especially in inflammation states.

A 331 and are uncertain about why community members are dying from what appear to the survivors to be unusual causes. Although Hrudey may feel this concern is misplaced or unfounded, that opinion does not reflect the feelings of those who live in Fort Chipewyan. The Alberta government's assertion that more extensive health studies are warranted (Chen 2009)(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate the protective effect of low and high molecular weight beta-glucans on the chosen immunological parameters, markers of antioxidative potential in rats' colon tissue, the number of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and the concentration of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) in rats' faeces. METHODS The experiment was(More)
