  1. 1. The structural diversity of lipopolysaccharides expressed by genetically defined clinical isolates of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae

    Author : Martin Månsson; Elke K. H. Schweda; Jane Thomas-Oats; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae NTHi ; lipopolysaccharide LPS ; nuclear magnetic resonance NMR spectroscopy; electrospray ionization mass spectrometry ESIMS ; structural analysis.;

    Abstract : Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is an important cause of otitis media and respiratory tract infections. Its lipopolysaccharide (LPS) molecule, an outer membrane component, is a major virulence factor of NTHi. The LPS molecule may also be an efficient target for antibodies which might be protective against NTHi disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dietary Fibre in Fermented Oats and Barley

    Author : Adele Lambo; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Näringslära; Nutrition; short-chain fatty acids ; exopolysaccharides; fermentation; barley; oats; Dietary fibre polysaccharides; cholesterol ;

    Abstract : The physiological characteristics of native and bacterial exopolysaccharides (EPS) in oats and barley-based fermented products were studied in relation to the physico-chemical properties. Article I presents a parallel-randomized double blind clinical trial using a dairy-based product (control), an oat-based product (fermented with V2, which is a mixture (1:1) of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp.

  3. 3. Immune response of the small intestinal mucosa in children with celiac disease : impact of two environmental factors, resident microbiota and oats

    Author : Veronika Sjöberg; Marie-Louise Hammarström; Olle Hernell; Katri Kaukinen; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Celiac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy caused by permanent intolerance to dietary gliadin in wheat gluten and related prolamines in barley and rye. The pathogenesis of CD is still unknown and several different environmental factors have been associated with CD, such as dysbiosis of the microflora. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic effects of oats in mice

    Author : Kristina E Andersson; Cellulär biomekanik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cholesterol; Inflammation; Bile acids; Atherosclerosis; Oats; Beta-glucans;

    Abstract : The cholesterol-lowering effect of oats is well established, but the crucial properties eliciting this effect need to be further investigated to optimize the use of oats as functional foods. Furthermore, there are almost no reports investigating the effect of oats on atherosclerosis development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bioprocessing of Oats Influence on Phytate Hydrolysis and Mineral Bioavailability

    Author : Marie Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : zinc absorption; bread fermentation; oats; bioprocessing; malting; iron absorption; mineral bioavailability; phytase activity; phytate;

    Abstract : The effects of bioprocessing on enzymatic phytate hydrolysis in oats were studied during malting, soaking and breadmaking to elucidate the reasons for poor phytase activity in oats and determine the optimal conditions for phytate hydrolysis. Malting of oats in a pilot plant was studied to investigate whether the malting process developed in the laboratory could be used in large scale preparation of oats with reduced phytate content.
