Eggs are one of the most nutritious and economically affordable foods. They contain high quality proteins and lipids and serve as an important source of vitamins and minerals. Despite the nutritional importance, the egg industry is vulnerable to the consumers’ perception about egg cholesterol and...
Novel feed enzyme delivery method: Binding exogenous feed enzymes to Bacillus spores to improve enzyme stability and total tract digestibilityDownload
The effects of binding feed enzymes to Bacillus subtilis (strain RK28) spores on enzyme stability and digestion in cattle were studied in comparison to unbound enzymes. Optimal conditions for adsorbing six different enzymes (α-amylase, β-glucanase, feruloyl esterase, phytase, purified xylanase,...
Vitamin D Supplementation and Bone Health in Adults with Diabetic Nephropathy: Preliminary Findings from a Randomized Controlled TrialDownload
Vitamin D (vitD) is a nutrient of concern in Canada particularly for those with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Participants (18-80y) with diabetes and CKD were randomized to receive either 50mcg/day (n=33) or 1,000mcg/month (n=30) vitD3 for 6-months. Variables studied included:...
Eicosapentaenoic and Docosahexaenoic Fatty Acids Modify Skeletal Muscle Fat Infiltration in an Animal Model of Colorectal Cancer Receiving ChemotherapyDownload
Background: Myosteatosis is defined as low skeletal muscle radio-density with elevated amounts of intermuscular adipose tissue, assessed using computed tomography. Myosteatosis has been recently observed to be associated with mortality in people with cancer. Previous work from our lab reported...
This study examined glucose homeostasis mechanisms involved in the BHE/cdb rat model of mitochondrial diabetes with a mutated Fo subunit of ATP synthase. Twenty-one-week old male BHE/cdb rats exhibited enhanced glucose tolerance despite impaired insulin secretion. Whole body in vivo...
Cathelicidins modulate the host immune response and the microbiota in Salmonella Typhimurium infectionDownload
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium is a prevalent incitant of enteritis in human beings and swine. The historic use of antibiotics at non-therapeutic concentrations for growth promotion, and at therapeutic doses for group and individual treatment of pigs has been linked to development of...
