Conjugated linoleic acid modulates tissue levels of chemical mediators and immunoglobulins in rats
TLDR
The view that CLA mitigates the food-induced allergic reaction is supported, as the reduction by CLA of the proportions of n−6 polyunsaturated fatty acids in peritoneal exudate cells and splenic lymphocyte total lipids seems to be responsible at least in part for the reduced eicosanoid levels.
A novel use of chitosan as a hypocholesterolemic agent in rats.
TLDR
A proper supplementation of chitosan to the diet seemed to be effective in lowering plasma cholesterol, and relatively more cholesterol existed as high-density lipiproteins and less as very low- density lipoproteins.
Inhibition of cholesterol absorption and synthesis in rats by sesamin.
TLDR
Since sesamin lowered both serum and liver cholesterol levels by inhibiting absorption and synthesis of cholesterol simultaneously, it deserves further study as a possible hypocholesterolemic agent of natural origin.
Sesamin, a sesame lignan, is a potent inducer of hepatic fatty acid oxidation in the rat.
Rice bran oil and cholesterol metabolism.
TLDR
The observation that blending RBO with safflower oil at a definite proportion magnifies the hypocholesterolemic efficacy, compared with the effect of each oil alone, may have a practical significance.
Genetically modified rapeseed oil containing cis-9,trans-11,cis-13-octadecatrienoic acid affects body fat mass and lipid metabolism in mice.
TLDR
Dietary GMRO, even at a dietary punicic acid level as low as 0.25 wt % of diet, reduced body fat mass and altered liver lipid metabolism in mice and was more effective than an equal amount of punICic acid from PO.
Inhibition of cholesterol absorption in rats by plant sterols.
TLDR
The data suggest that plant sterols displace cholesterol from bile salt (taurocholate) micelles and that sitosterol is more effective than fucosterol in this capacity.
Dietary Conjugated Linoleic Acid Increases Immunoglobulin Productivity of Sprague-Dawley Rat Spleen Lymphocytes
TLDR
Dietary CLA increased Ig productivity of spleen lymphocytes in vivo, and the effects of CLA and its oxidative derivatives, furan type fatty acids, on Ig productivity were examined.
