Plant- and marine-derived n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have differential effects on fasting and postprandial blood lipid concentrations and on the susceptibility of LDL to oxidative modification
BACKGROUND Dietary alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) can be converted to long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in humans and may reproduce some of the beneficial effects of eicosapentaenoicExpand

Effects of margarine compared with those of butter on blood lipid profiles related to cardiovascular disease risk factors in normolipemic adults fed controlled diets.
Effects of butter and 2 types of margarine on blood lipid and lipoprotein concentrations were compared in a controlled diet study with 23 men and 23 women. Table spreads, added to a common basalExpand

Randomised controlled trial of use by hypercholesterolaemic patients of a vegetable oil sterol-enriched fat spread.
Plant sterols may be a useful additive therapy in the treatment of hypercholesterolaemic patients. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a fat spread enriched with vegetable oilExpand

Spreads enriched with plant sterols, either esterified 4,4-dimethylsterols or free 4-desmethylsterols, and plasma total- and LDL-cholesterol concentrations.
In a 9-week study seventy-six healthy adult volunteers with an average age of 44 (SD 11) years, with baseline plasma total cholesterol levels below 8 mmol/l, received in a balanced, double-blind,Expand

Effect of plant sterols from rice bran oil and triterpene alcohols from sheanut oil on serum lipoprotein concentrations in humans.
BACKGROUND Intake of unsaponifiable compounds from edible oils, such as plant sterols, can lower serum cholesterol concentrations in humans. However, little is known about effects of other chemicallyExpand

Effects of green tea, black tea and dietary lipophilic antioxidants on LDL oxidizability and atherosclerosis in hypercholesterolaemic rabbits.
The hypothesis that tea or dietary lipid-soluble antioxidants reduce atherogenesis by lowering the oxidizability of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) was investigated. Five groups of 20 female NewExpand

Plant sterol esters lower plasma lipids and most carotenoids in mildly hypercholesterolemic adults
The ability of plant sterol esters (PSE) in salad dressing to modify plasma lipids and carotenoids was determined in 26 men and 27 women fed controlled, weight-maintaining, isocaloric diets. DietsExpand

Wheat germ policosanol failed to lower plasma cholesterol in subjects with normal to mildly elevated cholesterol concentrations.
Sugar cane policosanol, a mixture of long-chain primary alcohols (approximately 67% as octacosanol), has been reported to lower plasma low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol. We investigated theExpand

Biosynthesis and secretion of triacylglycerol in rat liver after partial hepatectomy.
Partially hepatectomized rats were used to investigate the mechanism of fatty-liver development in the regenerating rat liver. After partial hepatectomy the amount of hepatic triacylglycerolExpand

The influence of transportation stress on selected nutritional parameters to establish the necessary minimum period for adaptation in rat feeding studies
The optimal length of the adaptation period after transportation of rats, to be used in nutritional studies, was investigated in this study. After intracontinental transportation of rats by car andExpand
