BackgroundDietary intake during childhood and adolescence is of increasing interest due to its influence on adult health, particularly obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. There is a need to… Expand
Docosapentaenoic acid (22:5n-3): a review of its biological effects.
This article summarizes the current knowledge available on metabolism and the biological effects of n-3 docosapentaenoic acid (DPA). n-3 DPA has not been extensively studied because of the limited… Expand
Methodology for the determination of biological antioxidant capacity in vitro: a review
One of the effective means of adding value to agricultural produce is the development of functional foods or dietary supplements enriched with antioxidants. This process involves extraction of… Expand
Dietary restriction and exercise improve airway inflammation and clinical outcomes in overweight and obese asthma: a randomized trial

Obesity and asthma are associated conditions; however, the mechanisms linking the two remain unclear. Few studies have examined the effects of weight loss on inflammation and clinical outcomes in… Expand
Stimulation of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species production by unesterified, unsaturated fatty acids in defective human spermatozoa.
Male infertility is a relatively common condition affecting 1 in 20 men of reproductive age. The etiology of this condition is thought to involve the excessive generation of reactive oxygen species… Expand
Dietary supplementation with n-3 PUFA does not promote weight loss when combined with a very-low-energy diet.
Obesity is associated with elevated levels of inflammation and metabolic abnormalities which are linked to CVD. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether long-chain n-3 PUFA… Expand

The objective of the present study was to investigate the relationship between plasma n-3 PUFA composition and weight status. A total of 124 adults, stratified by weight status: healthy weight (n… Expand
A high-fat challenge increases airway inflammation and impairs bronchodilator recovery in asthma.
BACKGROUND Dietary fat activates systemic innate immune responses, but the effect on airway responses is unknown. OBJECTIVE To examine effects of a high-fat versus low-fat meal on systemic and… Expand

Prior supplementation with long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids promotes weight loss in obese adults: a double-blinded randomised controlled trial.
Obesity has been linked with low levels of ω-3 fatty acids. Generally, intervention studies have failed to establish benefits of supplementation with ω-3PUFA in reducing body weight or fat mass in… Expand
