This study will be conducted as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial for 12 weeks to receive daily β-CX 6 mg supplementation combined with a HPD on levels of metabolic factors, β-CX, glycemic and lipid profiles, inflammatory factors, adipocytokines, and body composition. Ninety-two eligible patients, aged 18–60 years, of both genders, who are obese and overweight (body mass index [BMI] 25– 40 kg/m2) will be randomly assigned to four groups as follow: HPD  + placebo; normal protein diet + β-CX (NPD + β-CX); HPD + &be...

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2018Source: Advances in Biological RegulationAuthor(s): Mariana Nikolova-KarakashianAbstractSphingolipids are class of metabolically distinct lipids that play structural and signaling functions in all organisms. Sphingolipid metabolism is deregulated during various diseases such as cancer, neurological and immune disorders, and metabolic syndrome. With the advancement of sphingo-lipidomics and sphingo-genomics, an understanding of the specific roles of ceramide, the quintessential bioactive sphingolipid, in fatty liver disease has taken shape. Two major pathways for ceramide g...

Bariatric surgery is currently the more efficient technique to treat severe obesity. The two surgical procedures most commonly performed in the world are sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), because they induce remission or amelioration of obesity-related comorbidities in a majority of cases with an acceptable rate of complications. Notably, numerous studies have shown that these procedures improve non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD) whose prevalence is particularly high in obese patients and thus in candidates for bariatric surgery, reaching 86% on per-operative liver biopsies [1].
