MOTIVATION Microarray technology has become a powerful research tool in many fields of study; however, the cost of microarrays often results in the use of a low number of replicates (k). Under circumstances where k is low, it becomes difficult to perform standard statistical tests to extract the most biologically significant experimental results. Other more(More)
BACKGROUND There is promising but conflicting evidence to recommend the addition of probiotics to foods for prevention and treatment of allergy. Based on previous studies with fermented milk containing Lactobacillus paracasei NCC2461, we aimed to compare the effect of a powder form of the latter probiotic with the effect of a blend of Lactobacillus(More)
Erythrocyte deformability is lower than normal in uncontrolled insulin-dependent diabetics and returns towards normal after 24 h treatment with a feedback-controlled insulin infusion. Deformability of normal erythrocytes is reduced by incubation in plasma from uncontrolled insulin-dependent diabetics but is normal in plasma from insulin-dependent diabetics(More)
Consumption of trans fats is associated with an increase of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. To comply with regulatory policies and public health authorities recommendations, trans fats should be replaced in food products. The study by Sundram et al. (Nutrition & Metabolism 2007, 4:3) reporting the effect on CVD risk factors of interesterified fat (IE)(More)
BACKGROUND The composition of dietary fatty acids (FA) during early life may impact adult adipose tissue (AT) development. We investigated the effects of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) intake during the suckling/weaning period on AT development and metabolic markers in the guinea pig (GP). METHODS Newborn GP were fed a 27%-fat diet (w/w %) with high (10%-ALA(More)
In the present study, we used a preclinical model of induced lipolytic enzyme insufficiency, and hypothesized that the use of monoacylglycerols (MAG) will enhance their bioavailability and delivery to the tissues. Experimental diets containing 20% lipids were fed to rats for 21 days with or without Orlistat. The control diet of fish oil (FO), a source of(More)
A low a-linolenic intake during early life increases adiposity in the adult guinea pig Abstract Background: The composition of dietary fatty acids (FA) during early life may impact adult adipose tissue (AT) development. We investigated the effects of a-linolenic acid (ALA) intake during the suckling/weaning period on AT development and metabolic markers in(More)
