  1. 1. Regulation of bile acids by prebiotic food components : Studies in rat caecum and in serum of mice and humans

    Author : Tannaz Ghaffarzadegan; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bile acids; Dietary fibre; Fat; Pectin; Guar gum; Barley; Lingonberry; Turmeric; Short-chain fatty acids; Gut microbiota; Caecum; Serum; Rat; Mice; Humans; GC-FID; UHPLC-MS;

    Abstract : Bile acids (BA) are formed from cholesterol in the liver and, apart from being part of fat digestion, they also act as signalling molecules in several health-related physiological processes. BA composition is regulated by gut microbiota as well as dietary fibre (DF) and fat in the diet. READ MORE

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) regulates nutrient uptake, secretes hormones and has a crucial gut flora and enteric nervous system. Of relevance for these functions are the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the solute carriers (SLCs). READ MORE

  3. 3. Nutritional status before and during pregnancy in relation to the maternal insulin-like growth factor-system and health related variables in the offspring

    Author : Hanna Olausson; Agneta Holmäng; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Adequate fetal growth is of importance for health in adulthood. Maternal nutritional status has been suggested to be one major factor influencing fetal development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gut microbiota to counteract metabolic disorders and neuroinflammation : Impact of dietary factors and their potential to prevent Alzheimer’s disease

    Author : Nittaya Marungruang; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Increased accumulations of senile plaques and tangles are the known neuropathological hallmarks of AD. However, the exact triggers for such protein accumulations, leading to cognitive impairment and important morphological alteration in AD, are still elusive. READ MORE

  5. 5. The effect of malnutrition on saliva composition and caries development

    Author : Ingegerd Johansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : starvation; protein-deficiency; antibacterial proteins; saliva; caries; infection;

    Abstract : Starvation and protein deficiency increase susceptibility to infec­tions in general and affect the function of various types of cells individually. Saliva contains substances which offer protection to the oral tissues. Its composition and secretion rate may be important in preventing the development of disease, e.g. READ MORE
