CONTEXT Pain is the most disturbing symptom of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. As many as 45% of patients with diabetes mellitus develop peripheral neuropathies. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of gabapentin monotherapy on pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. DESIGN Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 8-week trial conducted(More)
The aim was to assess the effect of iodine salts (KI or KIO(3)) on lipid oxidation as well as changes in the availability of lysine and methionine and protein digestibility in frozen-stored processed meats. Three types of iodine salt carriers were used: table salt, wheat fiber and soy protein isolate. The results showed no catalytic effect of iodine salts(More)
BACKGROUND Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) is an important source of phenolic compounds, mainly lignans. Antioxidant capacities of flaxseed extracts that contain the compounds have been reported earlier. However, there is a lack of accessible information about their activity against lipid oxidation in meat products. Therefore, the effect of ethanolic(More)
In recent years, there has been an ever-increasing interest in the research of polyphenols obtained from dietary sources, and their antioxidative properties. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of boiling buckwheat and barley groats on the antioxidant properties and dietary fiber composition. Antioxidative properties were investigated(More)
This study investigated the effect of antioxidants on lipid stability of frozen-stored meat products. Buckwheat hull extract was used to enrich fried meatballs made from ground pork. During 180-d storage of meat products, lipid oxidation (peroxide and 2-thiobarbituric acid reactive substances [TBARS] value) was periodically monitored. The results were(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the potential applicability of natural antioxidants in the stabilisation of phytosterols. A mixture of β-sitosterol and campesterol was incorporated into triacylglycerols (TAGs). The following antioxidants were added to the prepared matrix: green tea extract, rosemary extract, a mix of tocopherols from rapeseed oil, a mix(More)
BACKGROUND Plants are an important source of phenolic compounds. The antioxidant capacities of green tea, thyme and rosemary extracts that contain these compounds have been reported earlier. However, there is a lack of accessible information about their activity against lipid oxidation in emulsions and inhibit the interaction of lipid oxidation products(More)
Our continued interest in developing novel, potent acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitors, and our discovery of several active series of disubstituted urea ACAT inhibitors, have led us to investigate a series of trisubstituted ureas that are structural hybrids of our disubstituted series and of a trisubstituted urea ACAT inhibitor series(More)
BACKGROUND In the course of production of buckwheat groats by-products are produced, such as bran and hull, which apart from high content of dietary fiber, may also constitute valuable sources of antioxidants. The aim of these investigations was to determine the antioxidant activity of extracts from by-products produced during processing of buckwheat for(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to determine the effect of pasteurisation and sterilization of model systems of minced chicken meat in the presence of low or high-oxidised pork lard, soy and sunflower oil, as well as casein hydrolysate and rosemary extract, on losses of thiamine in model systems. METHODS In the samples, the thiamine content was(More)
