Arif, Asmaa Faden, Sahar Al-Otaibi, Bushra Al-Eid, Aishah Ekhzaimy, Haseeb A. KhanAbstractPeriodontal disease is a chronic infectious disease, which is characterized by the damaged dental hard tissue by lactic acid generated by microorganisms after the fermentation of carbohydrates rich diet. The risk of periodontal disease is known to be higher in diabetic patients. We compared the diversity of five commonly occurring dental bacteria including Porphyromonas gingiva...

OteizaAbstractSecondary bile acids promote gastrointestinal (GI) tract permeabilization both in vivo and in vitro. Consumption of high fat diet s increases bile acid levels in the GI tract which can contribute to intestinal permeabilization and consequent local and systemic inflammation. This work investigated the mechanisms involved in bile acid (deoxycholic acid (DCA))-induced intestinal epithelial cell monolayer permeabilization and the preventive capacity of (...

However, effects of β2/aβ2 and TLR4 on oxLDL-induced CD36 activation in macrophages remain to be elucidated and are currently under investigation.Materials and MethodsTHP-1 macroph...

PatelAbstractActivation of renin-angiotensin- system, nitric oxide (NO•) bioavailability and subsequent sympathoexcitation plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of many cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension. Previously we have shown increased protein expression of PIN (a protein inhibitor of nNOS: neuronal nitric oxide synthase, known to dissociate nNOS dimers into monomers) with concomitantly reduced levels of catalytically active dimers of nNOS in...

This study aimed to establish the longitudinal relationship between cluster patterns of childhood behavioural RFs and adult cardio-metabolic RFs.Data were from an Australian prospective cohort study of 1265 participants measured in 1985 (ages 9–15 yrs), and in 2004–06 (ages 26–36 yrs). At baseline, children self-reported smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity (PA), dietary behaviour and psychological well-being. At follow-up, participants completed questionnaires and attended study clinics where the following component indicators of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) score were measured: wa...

Andersen, Geir K. ResalandAbstractThe onset of cardiometabolic diseases are recognized to occur in childhood. We aimed to investigate the effect of a school-based cluster-randomized controlled trial of physical activity (PA) on single and clustered cardiometabolic risk factors.We included 1129 fifth-grade children from 57 schools (≥seven children in each class) in Sogn and Fjordane County, Norway. The PA intervention was conducted ...
