Lower-extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a manifestation of atherosclerotic disease in the lower limbs. PAD is a risk factor for poor outcomes including myocardial infarction, stroke, and mortality. Despite the potential benefits of early PAD detection, in the majority of PAD cases...
Effects of High-Intensity Aerobic Interval Training on Cardiovascular Disease Risk and Health-related Quality of Life in Testicular Cancer Survivors: The HIITTS TrialDownload
Background: Testicular cancer (TC) survivors (TCS) are an understudied, high-risk group susceptible to late-onset treatment-related cardiovascular disease (CVD), psychosocial, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) deficits in the years following treatment. Importantly, despite having the...
Investigating the role of coiled-coil domain containing protein 3 (CCDC3), a novel secreted protein, in endothelial inflammationDownload
Endothelial inflammation is critical in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that induces endothelial inflammation via activation of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) signaling....
Phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PEMT) is a hepatic enzyme that converts phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine. Pemt-/- mice are protected from obesity and insulin resistance, a phenotype that is reversed with dietary choline supplementation. Additionally, PEMT deficiency...
Modifiable cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, such as adiposity, are already associated with atherosclerotic progression in childhood. Less is known about whether physical activity (PA) is associated with progression of atherosclerosis in non-clinical samples of children. This...
The Role of Intestinal Derived Remnant Lipoproteins in the Progression of Atherosclerosis in Animal Models of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.Download
Introduction: Subjects with insulin resistance (IR) and diabetes are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than those without diabetes, however the mechanistic basis remains elusive. Despite LDL-cholesterol lowering by statin therapy, two-thirds of all CVD events remain, constituting...
The role of ezetimibe and simvastatin in modulating intestinal cholesterol transport, chylomicron profile and chylomicron-remnant uptake by the arterial wall in a rodent model of the metabolic syndromeDownload
Intestinally derived chylomicron remnants (CM-r) may contribute to atherogenic dyslipidemia during the Metabolic Syndrome (Mets). However, the combined effects of ezetimibe (EZ) and simvastatin (SV) on post-prandial (PP) dyslipidemia during MetS remains unclear, nor is it known whether the...
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...
