Resveratrol is a polyphenol that plays a potentially important role in many disorders and has been studied in different diseases. The research on this chemical started through the "French paradox," which describes improved cardiovascular outcomes despite a high-fat diet in French people. Since then, resveratrol has been broadly studied and shown to have(More)
Graft arterial disease (GAD) remains the leading cause of long-term solid organ allograft failure. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) promotes multiple aspects of allograft rejection via binding to type 1 (p55) and type 2 (p75) receptors. We used TNF type 1 receptor deficient (TNFR1KO), type 2 receptor deficient (TNFR2KO) and receptor double-deficient (TNFRDKO)(More)
BACKGROUND Interferon-gamma, produced by T-helper cells, activates macrophages and increases expression of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) products in acute and chronic rejection. We investigated the role of interferon-gamma in murine heterotopic tracheal allografts. METHODS Tracheas from BALB/c mice were heterotopically transplanted to BALB/c (12(More)
OBJECTIVE Both oleic acid (OA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) have been proposed to down-regulate cell proliferation of prostate, breast, and bladder cancer cells. However, direct evidence that OA and/or ALA suppresses to the development of esophageal cancer has not been studied. Also, no previous studies have evaluated how OA and/or ALA regulates malignant(More)
Tocotrienols, components belonging to vitamin E members, are used as potent therapeutics in the treatment of several diseases. Recent studies suggested tocotrienol to have better activity in many situations compared to tocopherols. Tocotrienols have been shown to lower the atherogenic apolipoprotein B and lipoprotein plasma levels. Additionally,(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a global health problem and lead to subacute liver failure, cirrhosis and/or hepatocellular carcinoma. An increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant depletion is found in the liver of obese patients with NAFLD. Irisin is a recently identified exercise-induced myokine. It increases total(More)
