Effect of high-amylose starch and oat bran on metabolic variables and bowel function in subjects with hypertriglyceridemia.
We compared the effects of a diet in which approximately 25% of the carbohydrate was replaced by high-amylose starch with those of a similar diet high in oat bran or low-amylose starch in 23Expand

Synbiotic intervention of Bifidobacterium lactis and resistant starch protects against colorectal cancer development in rats.
This study evaluated the effect of a probiotic bacteria 'Bifidobacterium lactis', the carbohydrate 'resistant starch' (RS) and their combination (synbiotic), on their ability to protect againstExpand

Dairy proteins protect against dimethylhydrazine-induced intestinal cancers in rats.
The impact of different dietary protein sources (whey, casein, soybean, red meat) on the incidence, burden and mass index of intestinal tumors induced by dimethylhydrazine in male Sprague-Dawley ratsExpand

A synbiotic combination of resistant starch and Bifidobacterium lactis facilitates apoptotic deletion of carcinogen-damaged cells in rat colon.
Recent reports suggest that combinations of prebiotics and probiotics may be protective against colorectal cancer. We examined in rats the effects of probiotic bacteria, resistant starch (RS), andExpand

Dietary fibre and colorectal cancer: a model for environment--gene interactions.
As environmental factors are clearly associated with risk for colorectal cancer, we set out to model how dietary fibre, or the effects of its ingestion, might impact upon the complex events thatExpand

A human, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial of prebiotic, probiotic, and synbiotic supplementation: effects on luminal, inflammatory, epigenetic, and epithelial biomarkers of
BACKGROUND Diet is an important factor in colorectal carcinogenesis; thus, dietary supplements may have a role in colorectal cancer prevention. OBJECTIVE The objective was to establish the relativeExpand

Butyrylated starch intake can prevent red meat-induced O6-methyl-2-deoxyguanosine adducts in human rectal tissue: a randomised clinical trial
Epidemiological studies have identified increased colorectal cancer (CRC) risk with high red meat (HRM) intakes, whereas dietary fibre intake appears to be protective. In the present study, weExpand

The influence of selenium-enriched milk proteins and selenium yeast on plasma selenium levels and rectal selenoprotein gene expression in human subjects.
Certain forms of dietary Se may have advantages for improving human Se status and regulating the risk for disease, such as cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC). The present study compared theExpand

Folate deficiency reduces the development of colorectal cancer in rats.
Alterations in folate status may play an important role in carcinogenesis. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of a diminished folate status on azoxymethane (AOM)-induced intestinalExpand

Inhibition by Resistant Starch of Red Meat–Induced Promutagenic Adducts in Mouse Colon
Population studies have shown that high red meat intake may increase colorectal cancer risk. Our aim was to examine the effect of different amounts and sources of dietary protein on induction of theExpand
