Allometric association between in vivo estimation of body composition during growth using deuterium dilution technique and chemical analysis of serial slaughtered pigsDownload
The objective of this study was to develop accurate mathematical-statistical functions to estimate body composition of live pigs between 20 and 140 kg weight from total body water (TBWA) determined by the deuterium dilution technique. Chemical body compositions during the growth period are...
The purpose of this work was to further understand nutritional status, especially body weight and composition, during colorectal cancer progression. Population-based studies of colorectal cancer patients were conducted using administrative health data (primary and co-morbid diseases,...
Development of carcass cuts, organs, body tissue and chemical body composition during growth of pigsDownload
A serial slaughter trial was carried out to examine the developmental change of physical and chemical body composition in pigs highly selected for lean content. A total of 48 pigs (17 females and 31 castrated males) were serially slaughtered and chemically analysed. Eight pigs were slaughtered at...
Effect of Regular Dietary Consumption of Beans or Peas on Body Weight, Body Composition, and Blood Pressure in Men and Women with Mild HypercholesterolemiaDownload
Pulse consumption has been associated with beneficial effects on heart health. In this randomized controlled trial, 51 participants with mild hypercholesterolemia were randomly assigned to consume study food items containing ¾ cup beans, peas, or rice (control) per day, 5 days per week for 6...
Energy expenditure forms the basis of all dietary recommendations. In patients with cancer, resting energy expenditure (REE) can be impacted by tumor burden, high systemic inflammation, and/or altered body composition. Total energy expenditure (TEE) and physical activity levels (PAL) have been...
Gestational weight gain (GWG) is associated with short-and long-term maternal and infant health outcomes. The purpose of this research was to describe longitudinal changes in weight and body composition during pregnancy and early postpartum according to pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI)...
Influence of dietary fat intake on acute changes in postprandial lipid and lipoprotein expression in children and adolescents with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)Download
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a chronic liver disease that typically occurs in obese children and adolescents with hyperinsulinemia/insulin resistance and dyslipidemia. While treatment is aimed at lifestyle modification (diet and physical activity), very little is known regarding...
Adults with class II/III obesity (BMI ≥35 kg/m2) are at increased health risk, and may also present with lower lean mass in relation to excess adiposity, a condition termed sarcopenic obesity. A variety of body composition indices and cutpoints have been used to define this condition, mostly in...
Structural and Biochemical Changes in Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) Seeds During Germination and Early-Seedling Growth. I. Storage Protein ReservesDownload
Abstract: Quantitative and qualitative changes in the storage proteins of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds were followed during germination and early-seedling growth and were correlated with light-microscopic observations. In both the megagametophyte and the embryo, the cells of tissues from...
