    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Yttre faktorerna i omgivningen som UV-strålning från solen, rökning, läkemedel, maten och påfrestande livssituationer kan leda till att kroppens celler börjar överproducera molekyler som kallas syrefria radikaler. Dessa molekyler reagerar kemist mycket lätt med omgivande ämnen. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Akut leversvikt medför hög risk för komplikationer orsakade av bakteriesepsis. Hög nivåer av lipopolysackarider (LPS; endotoxin) i det portala blodet kan leda till förhöjd sekretion av pro-inflammatoriska signalsubstanser från leverns Kupffer-celler, vilket har visats vara ett tidigt och viktigt tecken på leverskada.

As the formation of carboxylic acids (CAs) from various carbohydrates reaching the colon has been shown to vary, it is of great interest to identify food factors that could be of importance to this process.
