Systemic inflammation in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is characterized by elevated levels of CCL2.
The results indicate that patients with NAFLD are characterized by a low-grade systemic inflammation, and the high CCL2/MCP-1 levels in NASH might be of importance for the conversion from simple steatosis to NASH. Expand
Effects of stress on growth, cortisol and glucose levels in non-domesticated Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) and domesticated rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).

Together, the habituation of the stress response shown in both species did not eliminate the growth difference found in the repeatedly stressed fish versus the control fish, and the lower growth performance of Eurasian perch compared to rainbow trout could partly be due to the increased energy consumption in the more stress responsive Eurasia perch.

No improvement in cardiovascular risk factors in overweight and obese subjects after supplementation with vitamin D3 for 1 year
No improvement in cardiovascular risk factors in overweight and obese subjects after supplementation with vitamin D3 for 1 year is found. Expand
Serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and survival in Norwegian patients with cancer of breast, colon, lung, and lymphoma: a population-based study

Higher circulating serum levels of 25-OHD were positively associated with the survival for cancers of the breast, colon, lung, and lymphoma and was observed for all four cancers. Expand
Revealing genetic relationships between compounds affecting boar taint and reproduction in pigs.

The main goal of this study was to investigate the relationship between genetic factors involved in the primary boar taint compounds in an attempt to discover ways to reduce boarTaint without decreasing fertility-related compounds. Expand
Increased serum levels of the specific AGE-compound methylglyoxal-derived hydroimidazolone in patients with type 2 diabetes.

- Metabolism: clinical and experimental
- 1 February 2003
Serum hydroimidazolone levels did not correlate with fasting plasma glucose or hemoglobin A(1c) (HbA( 1c))) levels, and the observed differences between patients with diabetes and nondiabetic controls seem to be comparable to differences measured for other AGE compounds. Expand
Sugar profiling proves that human serum erythropoietin differs from recombinant human erythropoietin.
The detection of glycan structural discrepancies between human serum EPO and rh EPO by sugar profiling may be significant for diagnosing pathologic conditions, maintaining pharmaceutical quality control, and establishing a direct method to detect the misuse of rhEPO in sports. Expand
Prenatal exposure to corticosterone impairs embryonic development and increases fluctuating asymmetry in chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus)
In conclusion, an increased concentration of corticosterone in the egg was detrimental to survival and growth of the chicks and illustrates the potential application of FA as an indicator of environmental stress in poultry. Expand
Serum levels of advanced glycation end products are associated with left ventricular diastolic function in patients with type 1 diabetes.
Increased serum levels of AGEs, unlike serum levelsof CML, are associated with heart stiffness in patients with type 1 diabetes, possibly mediated by the cross-linking properties of A GEs. Expand
The effect of high-dose vitamin D on bone mineral density and bone turnover markers in postmenopausal women with low bone mass—a randomized controlled 1-year trial
- G. Grimnes, R. Joakimsen, Y. Figenschau, P. Torjesen, B. Almås, R. Jorde
- Osteoporosis International
One year treatment with 6,500 IU vitamin D3/day was not better than 800 IU/day regarding BMD in vitamin D-replete postmenopausal women with reduced bone mass and was less efficient in reducing bone turnover. Expand
