Cancer cachexia is characterised by metabolic alterations leading to loss of adipose tissue and lean body mass and directly compromises physical performance and the quality of life of cancer patients. In a murine cancer cachectic model, the effects of dietary supplementation with a specific combination of high protein, leucine and fish oil on weight loss,(More)
Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is crucial in the hydrolysis of triglycerides (TG) in TG-rich lipoproteins in the formation of HDL particles. As both these lipoproteins play an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic vascular disease, we sought to assess the relationship between post-heparin LPL (PH-LPL) activity and lipids and lipoproteins in a(More)
The influence of development and ethinylestradiol on low density lipoprotein (LDL)-receptor mRNA and hepatic triglyceride lipase (HTGL) activity and mRNA levels was studied in rat liver and intestine. Intestinal LDL-receptor mRNA levels are maximal in the perinatal period, whereas liver LDL-receptor and HTGL mRNA levels are highest after weaning in adult(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to characterize the cell of the human periosteum using immunohistological and molecular methods. METHODS Phenotypic properties and the distribution of the cells within the different layers were investigated with immunohistochemical staining techniques and RT-PCR, focussing on markers for stromal stem cells,(More)
We analyzed the molecular defects in the lipoprotein lipase gene of a patient with type I hyperlipidemia suffering from recurrent pancreatitis, indicative for lipoprotein lipase deficiency. Postheparin lipoprotein lipase activity in the patient was decreased by 70%. Direct genomic sequencing revealed compound heterozygosity for two mutation: the well-known(More)
Shoulder dislocations with fractures are a possible complication of an epileptic seizure and are often missed on the first sight. The incidence of sustaining an avascular humeral head necrosis (AVN) is high, and primary prosthetic replacement is the choice of treatment. In this paper, we describe such a rare case: a 48-year-old male patient sustained(More)
Nine patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia were treated for eight weeks with either 40 mg pravastatin or placebo under double blind conditions. Six patients received pravastatin, a competitive inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. Treatment with pravastatin resulted in a significant decrease in plasma(More)
In order to study the mechanism by which increasing unsaturation of dietary fat lowers HDL-cholesterol levels, we studied various measures of HDL metabolism in hamsters fed with fats with different degrees of saturation. Hamsters were fed on a cholesterol-enriched (1 g/kg) semipurified diet containing 200 g/kg of maize oil, olive oil, or palm oil for 9(More)
BACKGROUND Suture pretension during tendon repair is supposed to increase the resistance to gap formation. However, its effects on the Bunnell suture technique are unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the biomechanical effects of suture pretension on the Bunnell and cross-lock Bunnell techniques for tendon repair. METHODS Eighty porcine(More)
