Physicochemical properties and microencapsulation process development for fish oil using supercritical carbon dioxideDownload
Fish oil is an excellent source of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA), which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in addition to other health benefits. However, the average intake of LC-PUFA in the Western diet is much lower than the recommended levels. Fish oil is prone to...
Barley protein based microcapsules (1-5µm) incorporating fish oil/β-carotene were successfully prepared. Well suspended solid microcapsules, rather than emulsions, were able to form after high pressure emulsifying process. These wet-status microcapsules could be turned into dry powder by a spray...
The effect of eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic fatty acids on body composition and response to chemotherapy in patients with lung cancerDownload
Patients with lung cancer are at high risk for malnutrition and even mild weight loss has been associated with decreased median survival and poor response to chemotherapy. The purpose of this research was to describe fatty acids status during chemotherapy and determine if supplementation with...
Skeletal muscle fat infiltration is reversed by dietary fish oil in an animal model of colorectal cancer receiving irinotecan and 5-fluorouracilDownload
This study aimed to assess the effect of a Ward colorectal tumour, and irinotecan + 5-fluorouracil after 1- or 2-cycles in rats fed a diet with or without fish oil (FO), on the amount and types of fatty acids in rat skeletal muscle. Upon chemotherapy initiation, rats remained on control diet or...
Neonates with intestinal failure (IF), who must rely on parenteral nutrition (PN) for growth and maintenance of health, are at risk for intestinal failure-associated liver disease (IFALD). In neonates, short bowel syndrome (SBS) as a result of intestinal resection is the most common cause of IF....
