Microfluidic nanopaper based analytical device for colorimetric and naked eye determination of cholesterol using color changing of triangular silver nanoprisms

New J. Chem., 2021, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/D1NJ04458C, PaperSattar Shariati, gholamreza khayatian A microfluidic nanopaper-based analytical device ( µNPAD) has been prepared for the determination of cholesterol by using triangular silver nanoprisms (T-AgNPrs). We have developed a simple enzyme-based biosensor that can detect... The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry

BackgroundProgressive overloads of intrahepatic triglycerides are related to metabolic dysregulation of multiple lipid and lipoprotein profiles, but whether similar dose effects are found in each subtype of metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) remains unclear. We aimed to characterize the lipid profiles associated with liver fat content (LFC) in MAFLD patients who were overweight, lean/normal weight, or had diabetes.MethodsWe conducted a cross-sectional study enrolling 1,182 consecutive participants (144 non-MAFLD and 1,038 MAFLD) who underwent MRI proton density fat fraction measurement (MRI-PDFF) from 2011 to...

Atherosclerosis is an epidemic across the globe[A1], and its morbidity and mortality remain high, involving various complications and poor prognoses. In atherosclerosis, endothelial cells (ECs) dysfunction, vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) migration and proliferation, foam cell formation, and inflammatory cell recruitment contribute to disease progression. Vascular stem cells (VSCs) also play a critical role in the cardiovascular system. Important data showed that the simultaneous increase of proliferation and apoptosis of VSMCs is the main cause of graft vein stenosis, suggesting that inhibition of VSMCs proliferation...

Low-income populations are more likely to experience food and nutrition insecurity and suffer a greater burden of noncommunicable disease than the general population. The UnProcessed Pantry Project (UP3) is an intervention aimed to reduce ultra-processed food availability and consumption of food pantry clients accessing the emergency food system. The pilot study included nutrition education, food boxes, and social support for 16 weeks at 2 food pantries. Data collection included the ASA24 dietary recall to calculate Healthy Eating Index-2015 (HEI-2015) scores, biomarkers (hemoglobin A1c, total cholesterol, blood pressure, ...

THE BAD reputation of bad cholesterol is mainly attributable to its clogging effect on the arteries. As the arteries narrow, blood carrying key nutrients struggles to reach the vital organs. Unfortunately, high cholesterol does not produce symptoms. Further down the line, however, changes in the face could be a warning that a stroke might be imminent.

Conclusions: In 67,5% pts of the observed in early post-COVID-19 period had metabolic dysfunction. This group of pts require lifestyle modification, carrying out of the medical therapy aimed to correcting dyslipidemia, hyperglucosemia, HU and to achievement of the target BP values, according to the adopted recommendations. These measures should help to reduce the severity of the manifestations of the metabolic problems in this category of pts that undoubtedly will influence on the course of post-COVID-19 period. This group of pts needs the metabolic correction as a first step, and the 2-nd step – the further investig...
