Publication date: Available online 18 February 2020Source: Food HydrocolloidsAuthor(s): Xiaqing Wu, Guowen Zhang, Mingming Hu, Junhui Pan, Ang Li, Ying ZhangAbstractAs one of the most reactive dicarbonyl compounds, methylglyoxal (MGO) can react with protein to form advanced glycation end products (AGEs), then promoting the development of diabetic complications. Hence, it is significant for preventing protein glycation mediated by MGO. Here, the anti-glycation potential and mechanism of gallocatechin gallate (GCG) as an active ingredient of green tea were investigated. It was found that GCG exhibit good scavenging activitie...

This study aimed to evaluate: (i) the effectiveness of plasma activated water (PAW) on the germination capacity of mung bean seeds and (ii) the antimicrobial capacity of PAW. A specially designed set-up composed of two electrochemical cell was used to produce two different types of PAW, by surface plasma discharge ignited from copper cathode and copper anode, respectively. The germination capacity of mung bean seeds was assessed over 96 h incubation in the dark at 25 °C. The antimicrobial capacity of PAW was assessed against 6 h exposure to Escherichia coli NCTC 12900. The anodic PAW (rich in NO3−) indicate...

This study aimed to evaluate the effects on lamb meat quality of replacing the soybean meal and corn diet with peanut meal and crude glycerin. A total of 40 lambs, with an initial body weight of 17.15 ± 1.56 kg, were divided into four biodiesel by-product treatment groups: a no-treatment control, peanut meal, crude glycerin, and peanut meal + crude glycerin. The roughage-to-concentrate ratio was 40:60 in all diets. Peanut meal, crude glycerin, and their combination had no effect on the physicochemical characteristics of the meat, except the fatty acid profile. The meat from animals...

Authors: Warmbrunn MV, Herrema H, Aron-Wisnewsky J, Soeters MR, Van Raalte DH, Nieuwdorp M Abstract Introduction: Cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) are a group of interrelated disorders such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). As the prevalence of these diseases increases globally, efficient new strategies are necessary to target CMD and modifiable risk factors. In the past decade, evidence has accumulated regarding the influence of gut microbiota (GM) on CMD, providing new targets for therapeutic interventions.Areas covered: This narrative review discusses the pathophysi...

This study aims to investigate the gamma and neutron attenuation properties of several OAD (oral anti-diabetic drugs) samples. Our sample consists of seven different OAD films with different elemental compositions. The data were evaluated with Monte Carlo (MATLAB, WinX) techniques by SEM (Scanning electron microscopy) and EDS (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy) analysis. By using WinXCOM in the energy range from 0.02 MeV to 20 MeV, the mass attenuation coefficients (μ/ρ) for OAD samples are calculated. Additionally, both effective removal cross-section and effective atomic numbers (Zeff) for the sample films ...

The properties of peanut shell-derived biochar (PBC) under different temperature and its adsorption capacity of heavy metals were investigated. It was found that PBC400 exhibited the highest cumulative capability for heavy metals elimination in single solute because of its high specific surface area and...

Mrs Havercampa presents to clinic at 4:00 pm today for an unscheduled appointment. She is a 67-year-old obese diabetic woman who is 10  days status post right common femoral endarterectomy with Dacron patch angioplasty and retrograde iliac stenting for rest pain. Today, she reports increasing pain and drainage from the groin wound. On examination, there is erythema and dehiscence of the skin edges. Cloudy fluid emanates from the w ound. I sigh. “Mrs Havercamp, when was the last time you had anything to eat or drink?”
