Dietary Inflammatory Index Score and Cardiovascular Disease Risk Markers in Women with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

ConclusionsHigher inflammatory potential of the diet was positively associated with higher total cholesterol levels in women with SLE. These findings suggest that the inflammatory potential of a person’s diet may play a role in lipid profiles in this population. Future intervention studies are needed to build on these results and explore the effect of anti-inflammatory diets on health outcomes in individuals with SLE.

BulteAbstractMultiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder that targets myelin proteins and results in extensive damage in the central nervous system in the form of focal lesions as well as diffuse molecular changes. Lesions are currently detected using T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); however, monitoring such lesions has been shown to be a poor predictor of disease progression. Chemical exchange saturation transfer...

This study was conducted to evaluate the fatty acid profile, sensory properties and lipid oxidation of meat on retail display (RD) from Nellore steers (n = 96) fed diets containing soybean (SOY), sunflower (SUN), or linseed (LIN) oil or a control diet (CON). After slaughtering, samples of the Longissimus muscle were collected for sensory properties (1 day), fatty acid composition (1 day) and oxidation stability (3 days under RDC) evaluations. No differences in total lipids, cholesterol, TBARS, and total SFAs, MUFAs, PUFAs, and PUFA/SFA were observed. However, meat from animals fed vegetable oil had more CLA than ...

This study investigated the effects of pasture on nutritional characteristics and volatile components of sheep's milk, yoghurt and cheese produced in central Italy. During two grazing seasons (winter and spring) aliquots of fodder, yoghurt, fresh cheese and the corresponding ripened cheese were taken and analysed in relation to nutritional composition and volatile compounds. The grazing season influenced the chemical composition of the sheep's milk and dairy products, giving the cheese from the spring pasture a significantly higher dry matter content (61.26% vs 52.85%). Spring dairy products were also significantly higher ...

Authors: Bhullar SK, Shah AK, Dhalla NS Abstract Effective therapy of hypertension represents a key strategy for reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease and its associated mortality. The significance of voltage dependent L-type Ca²⁺ channels to Ca²⁺ influx, and of their regulatory mechanisms in the development of heart disease, is well established. A wide variety of L-type Ca²⁺ channel inhibitors and Ca²⁺ antagonists have been found to be beneficial not only in the treatment of hypertension, but also in myocardial infarction and heart failure. Over the past two decades, another cla...

Authors: Hardin SJ, Singh M, Eyob W, Molnar JC, Homme RP, George AK, Tyagi SC Abstract Recent studies have shown that the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and its microbiome impact the functioning of various body systems by regulating immunological responses, extracting energy, remodeling intestinal epithelia, and strengthening the gut itself. The gastrointestinal tract microbiota includes bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, and archaea which collectively comprise a dynamic community prone to alterations via influences such as the environment, illness, and metabolic processes. The idea that the host's diet p...

This study aims to explore the role of lncRNAs in the glucometabolic action of metformin on skeletal muscle cells.Main methodsMetformin accumulation was assessed using [14C]-metformin. A lncRNA array was used to investigate metformin-regulated lncRNAs in C2C12 skeletal muscle cells. Knockdown studies were applied to evaluate the function of lncRNA Dreh. A colorimetric assay was used for the measurement of medium glucose concentration; glucose transport was assessed using [3H]-2-deoxyglucose; real-time PCR was used for RNA expression analysis, and western blotting was used to assess protein expression in myotubes. A Dreh ov...
