Flavonoids are inactivated by phase II metabolism and occur in the body as glucuronides. Mammalian beta-glucuronidase released from neutrophils at inflammatory sites may be able to deconjugate and thus activate flavonoid glucuronides. We have studied deconjugation kinetics and pH optimum for four sources of beta-glucuronidase (human neutrophil, human(More)
BACKGROUND Aspergillus niger prolyl endoprotease (AN-PEP) efficiently degrades gluten molecules into non-immunogenic peptides in vitro. AIM To assess the efficacy of AN-PEP on gluten degradation in a low and high calorie meal in healthy subjects. METHODS In this randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study 12 healthy volunteers(More)
UNLABELLED The use of paracetamol as tool to determine gastric emptying was evaluated in a cross over study.
