AbstractA 10-week feeding experiment was carried out examining the effects of deoxynivalenol (DON)-contaminated maize treated with different sodium sulphite (SoS) concentrations on performance, health and DON-plasma concentrations in fattening pigs. Two maize batches were used: background-contaminated (CON, 0.73  mg/kg maize) andFusarium-toxin contaminated (DON, 44.45  mg/kg maize) maize. Both were wet preserved at 20% moisture content, with one of three (0.0, 2.5, 5.0 g/kg maize) sodium sulphite concentrations and propionic acid (15%). Each maize batch was then mixed into a barley-wheat-based diet at a proportio...

CONCLUSION: Metabolic health status and obesity were significantly associated with increased risk of POAG incidence. MUNO subjects but not MHO subjects showed a higher risk of POAG development than did MHNO subjects, suggesting that metabolic status is more important than obesity in POAG.

Authors: Everatt R, Virvičiūtė D, Tamošiūnas A Abstract OBJECTIVES: Previous studies have observed notable unexplained geographic differences in incidence of kidney cancer in Europe. Lithuania is among the countries with the highest incidence and mortality. Our objective was to investigate the effect of different lifestyle, anthropometric and biological factors on the risk of kidney cancer in Lithuanian men. METHODS: This population-based cohort study included 6,849 men initially free from cancer. During the follow-up (1978-2008), 79 incident cases of kidney cancer were identified. Cox proportional h...

The objective of this study was to compare the effect of the dietary beer trub, alone or in combination with linseed, on meat quality, oxidative status and cholesterol content of rabbit. Eighty New Zealand White rabbits were divided at weaning (30 d) into four dietary groups: control (C) fed a standard diet, trub (T, 2% of lyophilized trub), linseed (L, 3% of extruded linseed), and trub-linseed in combination (TL, 2% of lyophilized trub and 3% of extruded linseed). At slaughtering (80 d) the oxidative parameters of blood and quality of Longissimus thoracis et lumborum were analysed. The in vivo lipid oxidation was similar ...

The objectives of this study were to evaluate analysis of HAs and COPs in raw, boiled and roasted chicken by QuEChERS coupled with UPLC-MS/MS and GC-MS, respectively, and study their formation as affected by different flavorings (red pepper, black pepper, rosemary, soy sauce) and roasting methods (fan oven and superheated steam oven). Results showed that the average recovery respectively ranged from 54.1–109.3% and 65.1–116.6% for 20 HAs and from 87.9–102.8% and 87.5–101.3% for 7 COPs in the skin and meat portions of boiled chicken breast, while the coefficient of variation (CV) of the intra-day and...

Almeida Isabel Weigand Matthias Kroiss Maria Claudia Nogueira Zerbini Maria Candida Barisson Villares Fragoso Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare endocrine malignancy with an unfavorable prognosis. Despite the poor prognosis in the majority of patients, no improvements in treatment strategies have been achieved. Therefore, the discovery of new prognostic biomarkers is of enormous interest. Sterol-O-acyl transferase 1 (SOAT1) is involved in cholesterol esterification and lipid droplet formation. Recently...
