Understanding postprandial inflammation and its relationship to lifestyle behaviour and metabolic diseasesDownload
Postprandial hyperlipidemia with accumulation of remnant lipoproteins is a common metabolic disturbance associated with atherosclerosis and vascular dysfunction, particularly during chronic disease states such as obesity, the metabolic syndrome and, diabetes. Remnant lipoproteins become attached...
Understanding the influence of state/phase transitions on ice recrystallization in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) during frozen storageDownload
Temperature fluctuations during storage and distribution of frozen foods lead to ice recrystallization and microstructural modifications that can affect food quality. Low temperature transitions may occur in frozen foods due to temperature fluctuations, resulting in less viscous and partially...
Understory responses to mechanical restoration and drought within Montane forests of British ColumbiaDownload
Pre- and post-thinning relationships between forest overstorey and understorey characteristics at sites in both the Interior Douglas-fir (IDF) and Ponderosa Pine (PP) biogeoclimatic zones in the East Kootenay region of southeast British Columbia were investigated to quantify understorey responses...
Use of digital images for evaluation of factors responsible for visual preference of apples by consumersDownload
This research used digital images to explore some of the factors responsible for consumer preference of visual characteristics of apples (Malus ×domestica Borkh.). The images systematically varied in color and shape (Expt. A: 9 images) and type, shape, and background color (Expt. B: 10 images),...
Objective: To estimate the prevalence and determinants of use of vitamin and mineral supplements among adult Canadians. Methods: Data from adult respondents of the Canadian Community Health Survey Cycle (CCHS) 2.2 were used. Participants were asked about their use of vitamin and mineral...
Vaccenic acid (VA) is a ruminant-derived trans-fat and precursor of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The objective of the present study was to explore the effects of VA on immune function in a model of the metabolic syndrome, JCR:LA-cp rats. Lean (2:1 mix of +/cp and +/+) and obese (cp/cp) rats,...
Vaccenic acid suppresses intestinal inflammation by increasing the endocannabinoid anandamide and non-cannabinoid signaling molecules in a rat model of the metabolic syndromeDownload
Jacome-Sosa, Miriam, Proctor, Spencer D., Field, Catherine J., Vacca, Claudia, Nelson, Randy C., Mangat, Rabban, Reaney, Martin J., Curtis, Jonathan M., Banni, Sebastiano, Diane, Abdoulaye, Piomelli, Daniele, Igarash, Miki, Vine, Donna F., Shen, Jianheng
Vaccenic acid (VA), the predominant ruminant-derived trans fat in the food chain, ameliorates hyperlipidemia, yet mechanisms remain elusive. We investigated whether VA could influence tissue endocannabinoids (ECs) by altering the availability of their biosynthetic precursor, arachidonic acid...
Vaccenic and elaidic acid modify plasma and splenocyte membrane phospholipids and mitogen-stimulated cytokine production in obese insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp ratsDownload
This study assessed the long-term effects of dietary vaccenic acid (VA) and elaidic acid (EA) on plasma and splenocyte phospholipid (PL) composition and related changes in inflammation and splenocyte phenotypes and cytokine responses in obese/insulin resistant JCR:LA-cp rats. Relative to lean...
Vitamin D supplementation and bone health in adults with diabetic nephropathy: The protocol for a randomised controlled trialDownload
Background Suboptimal vitamin D status is highly prevalent in Northern communities, particularly in those patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes and chronic renal disease. Emerging literature suggests that adherence to daily vitamin D supplementation may be an important factor...
Walking behaviour and glycemic control in type 2 diabetes: Seasonal and gender differences - Study design and methodsDownload
Background The high glucose levels typically occurring among adults with type 2 diabetes contribute to blood vessel injury and complications such as blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke. Higher physical activity levels are associated with improved glycemic control, as measured by...
