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.

Authors: Brand C, Sehn AP, Gaya AR, Mota J, Brazosayavera J, Pollo Renner JD, Reuter CP Abstract PURPOSE: To verify the moderator role of physical fitness in the relationship betweenadiposity and cardiometabolic risk factors in normal weight and overweight/obese children and adolescents. METHODS: Cross-sectional study comprising 2482 children and adolescents, aged 7-17 years. Physical fitness was evaluated according the procedures of Projeto Esporte Brazil, and waist circumference (WC) with an inelastic tape. Cardiometabolic risk score was defined by the z-score sum of glucose, total cholesterol, high-density l...

In this study, the resveratrol-zinc oxide complex is encapsulated with chitosan (CS-ZnO-RS). The synthesized CS-ZnO-RS could be used to deliver the resveratrol with minimized side effects and also improved bioavailability. CS-ZnO-RS were characterized by various techniques such as particle size analyzer, DSC, FT-IR, TEM, SEM, and AFM. The electron microscopic and particle analyzer confirmed that the synthesized CS-ZnO-RS were monodispersed, spherical and its average size was 38 nm. The drug-releasing profile showed that 95% of RS is released from CS-ZnO-RS within 24 h. In vitro studies confirmed that α-...

In this study, we examined whether quercitrin would be absorbed intactly in modeled Caco-2 cells, as well as determined the involvement of sodium-dependent glucose transporter 1 (SGLT1) and glucose transporter 2 (GLUT2) in its transmembrane transport. Design: The first experiment was conducted to examine the uptake of quercitrin into Caco-2 cells 24 h after they were seeded and the second experiment was conducted to determine the transport across the apical and basolateral membrane of Caco-2 cells after they were cultured for 21 days in a Millicell system. Quercitrin was administered at 3, 9, or 18 μg/mL; and the t...

This study was designed to determine serum IL-31 level and to explore its diagnostic value for PBC as well as the association of IL-31 with inflammatory and fibrotic progression. 60 PBC patients, 32 age- and sex-matched patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and 30 age- and sex-matched healthy controls (HC) were recruited. The sera were detected for IL-31, IL-4, interferon gamma (IFN-γ), IL-17 and other laboratory indicators. Serum IL-31 levels were significantly higher in PBC patients (median, IQR, 20.6, 16.7-26.2, pg/ml) than CHB patients (median, IQR, 11.3, 8.0-13.0, pg/ml) and HC (median, IQR, 11.0, 10.0-12.2 pg/ml) (P
