The objectives of the present study were to (1) examine the effects of the phenotypic factors age, gender and BMI on the lipidomic profile and (2) investigate the relationship between the lipidome, inflammatory markers and insulin resistance. Specific ceramide, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine lipids were increased in females relative to(More)
Experimental aspiration pneumonitis studies in general have focused on the pathogenesis of the acidic component of the lung injury, although the injury produced by the particulate component of gastric contents largely has been ignored. The present study compares the inflammatory potential of small gastric particles to acidic lung injury and examines their(More)
Emerging evidence has demonstrated that saturated fatty acids prime pro-IL-1β production and inflammasome-mediated IL-1β activation is critical in obesity-associated insulin resistance (IR). Nonetheless, IL-1 receptor I-deficient (IL-1RI(-/-)) mice develop mature-onset obesity despite consuming a low-fat diet (LFD). With this apparent contradiction, the(More)
BACKGROUND Butorphanol, an opioid agonist/antagonist, has been administered spinally and epidurally in humans for moderate to severe pain. However, unlike intrathecal (i.t.) morphine, virtually no information is available regarding butorphanol's ability to induce analgesic tolerance at the spinal cord level upon chronic i.t. administration. METHODS(More)
We measured endotoxin and bacterial levels in tap water, in water purified by reverse osmosis, and in dialysate samples over a 4-month period in a new 10-bed renal dialysis unit. Water treated by reverse osmosis is conducted to the 10 stations through 111 m of piping composed of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). All determinations were made prior to(More)
We have examined the onset and duration of the inhibitory effect of an intravenous infusion of lipid/heparin on total body carbohydrate and fat oxidation (by indirect calorimetry) and on glucose disappearance (with 6,6 D2-glucose and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry) in healthy men during euglycemic hyperinsulinemia. Glycogen synthase activity and(More)
