The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of one bout of low-intensity exercise on the lipemic response to a high-fat meal. Twelve (six women, six men) normolipidemic adults aged 25.8 +/- 1.2 years (mean +/- SEM) took part in two trials. In the exercise trial, subjects walked for 2 hours on a treadmill at 30.9% +/- 1.6% of maximal oxygen uptake(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS C-myc over expression is implicated in malignancy although to date this has not been studied in Barrett's metaplasia. We sought to determine c-myc expression in the malignant progression of Barrett's metaplasia and whether it may be induced by bile acids seen in gastro-oesophageal refluxate. METHODS C-myc protein and mRNA levels were(More)
The incidence of both esophageal adenocarcinoma and Barrett's esophagus, a premalignant condition predisposing to this cancer, is rising rapidly. There is growing evidence that both of these conditions are related to the reflux of acid and bile into the esophagus. This results in inflammation and cell damage which initiates a sequence of events termed the(More)
The recognition of key roles for cadherins in the determination of epithelial cell phenotype, migration, differentiation, and tumour dissemination have stimulated much interest in this family of adhesion molecules. In the gastrointestinal tract, alteration of the expression of classical cadherins with aberrant P-cadherin up-regulation, associated with(More)
We analyzed highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses isolated from humans infected in Egypt during 2007-2011. All analyzed viruses evolved from the lineage of subtype H5N1 viruses introduced into Egypt in 2006; we found minimal evidence of reassortment and no exotic introductions. The hemagglutinin genes of the viruses from 2011 formed a(More)
Celiac disease is characterized by a chronic immune response to dietary gluten, in which T cell responses result in elevated mucosal levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, interleukin (IL)-1, interferon (IFN)-gamma, and transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta, which induce profound mucosal remodeling associated with increased enterocyte proliferation,(More)
Over the last two decades there has been a significant increase in the number and types of immunosuppressive agents that have been available to clinicians. The protocols for immunosuppression used in liver transplantation have been derived historically from those in renal transplantation. During the last decade there has been a shift in the use of(More)
