Factors such as high cholesterol levels pose a big problem for heart health since it can affect lipoprotein transport and metabolism. Moreover, it can alter the structure and function of blood vessels by accumulating within the...

Authors: Choi DJ, Kim SC, Park GE, Choi BR, Lee DY, Lee YS, Park SB, Park YI, Kim GS Abstract The present study aimed to evaluate the potential synergistic and protective effects of ALM16, a mixture of Astragalus membranaceus (AM) and Lithospermum erythrorhizon (LE) extract in a ratio of 7 : 3, against hepatic steatosis in high fat diet (HFD)-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) mice. Forty-eight mice were randomly divided into eight groups and orally administered daily for 6 weeks with a normal diet (ND) or high fat diet alone (HFD), HFD with AM (HFD + 100 mg/kg AM ex...

In conclusion, aspirin can systemically and simultaneously ameliorate NAFLD and atherosclerosis by inhibiting lipid biosynthesis and inflammation and by elevating catabolic metabolism through the activation of the PPARδ-AMPK-PGC-1α pathway. Furthermore, aspirin may normalize atherosclerosis and NAFLD by modulating the mannose receptor and CCR2 in macrophages. PMID: 32258142 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Bhawal UK, Yoshida K, Kurita T, Suzuki M, Okada Y, Tewari N, Oka S, Kuboyama N, Hiratsuka K Abstract Background and aims: The present investigation was carried out to determine the levels of blood serum components and inflammatory cytokines in diabetic rat models [Goto-Kakizaki (GK), Zucker, and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced Sprague Dawley (SD) rats] which underwent abdominal Low-Power Laser Irradiation (LPLI) and compare them with non-irradiated controls. Methods: The animals were subdivided into the following groups: diabetic control rats (GK, Zucker, STZ) and diabetic rats treated with LPLI (GK + LPL...

Authors: Liu Y, Zeng Z, Yu X, Li T, Yao Y, Chen R, Zheng J Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of lipoprotein(a) level on long-range prognosis after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) in patients with low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) goal attainment. In this retrospective study, 350 patients in Coronary artery disease (CAD) with LDL-C less than 1.8 mmol/L were enrolled in the Guangdong Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases from January 2011 to December 2013. Follow-up was 1 year after PCI. According to the median value of the study population based on Lp(a), the patients ...

In this study, the hepatoprotective and hypolipidemic effects of high-polydextrose snack food on Swiss albino mice were investigated. The mice were randomly divided into three groups: control diet, high-fat diet, and high-fat and fiber diet groups. Addition of high-polydextrose snack to the high-fat diet resulted in significant reduction in the liver weight, the accumulation of lipid droplets in liver, and the liver damage of hyperlipidemic mice in comparison with the high-fat diet. The high-polydextrose snack also decreased the content of total triglyceride, cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol as well as ...

Authors: Femat-Roldán G, Gaitán Palau MA, Castilla-Cortázar I, Elizondo Ochoa G, Moreno NG, Martín-Estal I, Jiménez Yarza M Abstract Background: Weight loss in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients is a common but poorly understood manifestation. Several studies have reported that weight changes could be related to motor symptoms, drug side effects, dysphagia, depression, and/or dementia. Weight loss in PD is not a benign phenomenon and it has several clinical and prognostic implications with increased morbidity and mortality. Thus, it is crucial to determine nutritional changes in PD...

In the fall of 2019, my hospital put out word that it was looking for physicians who might wish to undergo intensive training to become certified health and wellness coaches. Having worked with patients who have used health coaching, I jumped at the chance. Their experiences were almost universally positive: many of them had attained health goals that had been otherwise elusive, such as the weight loss they invoked annually — and fruitlessly — as a New Year’s resolution. The few physicians I knew who were also coaches seemed to be able to fuse the different skill sets in a way that expanded their ability ...

Heart rate variability is known to be a good way to assess the function of the autonomic nervous system. (That said, most of the commercially available tools for those who want to measure heart rate variability at home are quite unreliable; it is challenging for a self-experimenter to obtain results that are as useful as those provided by medical equipment used by medical staff). The autonomic nervous system, like all aspects of our biology, is negatively impacted by the progression of aging. The same mechanisms of molecular damage that drive autonomic nervous system aging will be involved in cognitive decline and neurodeg...

CONCLUSION: Differences between NHB and NHW men in the intake of certain nutrients may be related to chronic disease disparities. Future research should consider racial/ethnic differences in dietary intake among men and the impact these differences have on men's health. PMID: 32250708 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Teaima MH, El Mohamady AM, El-Nabarawi MA, Mohamed AI Abstract Ondansetron HCl is a (5-HT3) serotonin receptor antagonist, used as anti-emetic drug in combination with anticancer agents. Conventional dosage forms have poor bioavailability and patient compliance. These problems can be reduced by the use of nasal niosomal thermo reversible in situ gelling system; Niosomes were formulated using various surfactants (Span 60, Span 80, Tween 20 and Tween 80) in different ratios using thin film hydration technique. Niosomes were evaluated for particle size, zeta potential, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) i...
