We evaluated the relationship between fat distribution and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), independent of total adiposity. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We studied 350 people with abdominal adiposity (waist-to-hip ratio [WHR] > or =0.9 in(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether a diet containing foods enriched with β-glucans (3.6 g/d), folic acid (1600 μg/d), long-chain (800 mg/d) and short-chain (400 mg/d) n-3 fatty acids, and tocopherols (120 mg/d) is able to modulate positively the cardiovascular risk profile in people at slightly increased cardiovascular risk. METHODS Sixteen subjects with mild(More)
Active GLP-1, an incretin with b5 min half-life, is rapidly inactivated by the dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV), present in circulation and in isolatedplasmaafter sampling [1]. Data in literature on the stability of this molecule in vitro are scanty, inconsistent and limited to only a few hours. The two active GLP-1 isoforms remain stable up to 30 min at 37(More)
