Publication date: 1 June 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 178Author(s): Hugo A. Pérez, Anibal Disalvo, M. de los Ángeles FríasAbstractComparison of the behavior of Laurdan in gel and in the liquid crystalline DPPC bilayers with that observed in chloroform and OctOH allow concluding that changes in the membrane lipid order cannot be ascribed to changes in viscosity of the local environment.Cholesterol acts as a spacer below the transition temperature of DPPC, promoting a disorder state in the acyl chain region. No evidence of water entrance has been detected with Laurdan up to ...

Publication date: Available online 19 March 2019Source: Journal of Health EconomicsAuthor(s): Giovanni Crea, Matteo M. Galizzi, Ismo Linnosmaa, Marisa MiraldoAbstractWe test the physicians’ altruism and moral hazard hypotheses using a national panel register containing all 2003-2010 statins prescriptions in Finland. We estimate the likelihood that physicians prescribe generic versus branded versions of statins as a function of the shares of the difference between what patients have to pay out of their pocket and what is covered by the insurance, controlling for patient, physician, and drug characteristics. We find th...

Conclusions: The results indicated that probiotic food and supplement withLactobacillus andBifidobacterium could be used as interventions to improve specific anthropometric and biochemical outcomes among individuals withMetS. However, probiotic treatment alone could not reduce overall health risks. In addition, there were methodological drawbacks among reviewed studies, and further research is needed.Ann Nutr Metab 2019;74:224 –241

Developmental exposure to stress hormones, glucocorticoids, is central to the process of prenatal programming of later life health. Glucocorticoid overexposure, through stress or exogenous glucocorticoids, results in reduced birthweight, as well as affective and neuropsychiatric outcomes in adults, combined with altered hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. As such, glucocorticoids are tightly regulated during development through the presence of the metabolising enzyme 11 β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase type 2 (HSD2). HSD2 is highly expressed in two hubs during development: the placenta and the fetus itse...

Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: Indian Heart JournalAuthor(s): Enas A. Enas, Basil Varkey, T.S. Dharmarajan, Guillaume Pare, Vinay K. BahlAbstractLipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a circulating lipoprotein, and its level is largely determined by variation in the LPA gene locus encoding apo(a). Genetic variation in the LPA gene that increases Lp(a) level also increases coronary artery disease (CAD) risk, suggesting that Lp(a) is a causal factor for CAD risk. Lp(a) is the preferential lipoprotein carrier for oxidized phospholipids, (OxPL), a proatherogenic, and proinflamatory biomarker. Lp(a) adversely affect...

CONCLUSION: These results obtained from FH patients revealed that persistently elevated LDL-C leads to cerebral PVH. It is necessary in the management of FH to pay attention not only to the development of coronary heart disease but also to the presence of cerebral SVD.
