A hereditary postprandial hypertriglyceridemic rabbit (PHT rabbit) is a new dyslipidemic model showing remarkably high plasma triglycerides with only limited elevation of plasma total cholesterol. In PHT rabbits, plasma triglyceride was markedly elevated postprandially compared with healthy Japanese white (JW) rabbits. In physiological experiments, the ring(More)
The relationships between 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), 2-thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-6 PUFAs) were investigated for pork stored at 0, -20 and -80 degrees C. A significant linear correlation was apparent between HNE and TBARS for the pork stored at each temperature. However, the n-6 PUFA content(More)
We investigated the effects of low-dose Beraprost sodium (BPS), a stable prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) analogue, on microvascular permeability and the plasma concentrations of thromboxane and adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) in blood-perfused rabbit lungs subjected to ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). After an ischemic insult for 2 h, saline as a vehicle, 3(More)
We test the hypothesis that microvascular endothelial cells may undergo apoptosis in response to acute pulmonary venous hypertension. The isolated rabbit lungs were perfused in situ for 4 h with left atrial pressure of 0, 10, or 20 mmHg at a constant blood flow. Edema formation was monitored by lung weight gain. To assay for apoptosis, we performed agarose(More)
The effects of chronic administration of piceatannol-enriched (9.5% w/w) passion fruit seed extract (PFSE) on the cardiovascular damage induced in a high-fat (HF) diet-fed model of Fischer 344 rats were evaluated. Rats were fed the control, HF, or HF diets containing PFSE (0.5% w/w) for 16 weeks, and the effects of the various diets on the tissue weight,(More)
