Patients with peripheral vascular disease (Fontaine stage II) are characterized by ischemia of the lower extremities, atherosclerosis and alteration of blood coagulation and fibrinolysis. A randomized, two-period, crossover design was used to compare the effects of extra-virgin (VO) and refined olive (RO) oils on plasma lipids and lipoprotein composition(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the effect of germinating Pisum sativum L. variant Arvense cv. Esla for 3 and 6 d in darkness on the chemical composition and nutritive utilization of protein and carbohydrates. METHODS Nutritional assessment of protein and carbohydrates was based on chemical analysis of raw and germinated pea flours and in vitro and in vivo rat(More)
The effect of intracerebroventricular or intraperitoneal administration of cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN 55,212-2 or inverse agonist AM 251 on food intake and extracellular levels of serotonin and acetic acid 5-hydroxy-indol from presatiated rats was studied. Compared to the vehicle-injected control, the intracerebroventricular administration of WIN(More)
Copper, manganese and selenium are elements involved in protecting the body against oxidative stress. Determining their plasma level may contribute to assessing the health and nutritional status of populations. The aim of this study was to assess factors influencing copper, manganese and selenium plasma levels in an adult Mediterranean population and to(More)
We analyzed the effects of high-intensity exercise (HIE) and anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) on brain redox status. 40 male Wistar rats were randomly distributed in 4 experimental groups (n=10) with or without HIE and with or without weekly Stanozolol administration. Thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARs) and protein carbonyl content (PCC) were(More)
This study assessed factors influencing iron and zinc intake and associated biochemical parameters in an adult population from southern Spain to identify patterns of intake and groups at risk for deficiency. A cross-sectional survey was done in Andalusia (southern Spain) to study nutrient intakes in a random sample of 3421 subjects (1747 men, 1674 women,(More)
Consumption of high-protein (HP) diets is postulated to exert a negative influence on bone and renal health. However, no conclusive evidence has been presented related to this issue or to the potential protective action of resistance training on HP-induced systemic effects. We examined the effects of HP diet consumption on food intake, body-weight gain,(More)
Recovery from Mg deficiency was studied in adult Wistar rats fed a semisynthetic diet containing 0.04% Mg in the form of magnesium carbonate. Daily administration of a diet containing recommended levels of calcium carbonate to Mg-deficient rats led to the recovery, within the first seven days of treatment, of normal values in most of the parameters studied:(More)
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is characterized by arteriosclerosis and lower extremity ischemia which cause intermittent claudication. Patients grouped in the Fontaine stage II have more than 75% organic stenosis in their large coronary arteries and exhibit a number of alterations in blood coagulation and plasma lipids. The aim of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to assess factors influencing the intake and plasma levels of calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P) and magnesium (Mg) in an adult population from southern Spain, in order to identify patterns of intake and groups at risk for deficiency. METHODS A cross-sectional survey was carried out in Andalusia, a western Mediterranean region(More)
