The current investigation was carried out to estimate the protective effect of aqueous extract of Cheatomorpha gracilis (AEC) against High fat Diet (HFD) induced liver damage in mice. The results of the in vitro study showed that AEC have higher antioxidant capacities in the DPPH and hydroxyl radical-scavenging assays. Indeed, many phenolic compounds (gallic acid, quercetin, naringenin, apigenin, kaempferol and rutin) were identified in the AEC. Read More

Bacterial infection is one of the main causes of bovine respiratory disease (BRD), which can cause tremendous losses for the herd farming industry worldwide. L-Glutamine (GLN), a neutral amino acid, has been reported to have anti-inflammatory properties. This study aims to explore the potential protective effects and mechanisms of GLN on acute lung injury (ALI) induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mice. Read More

Branched chain amino acids (BCAA), especially leucine (Leu), have been reported to decrease fat deposition. However, opposite effects of BCAA on lipid metabolism have been observed. To determine the role of BCAA in lipid metabolism, an amino acid-defined diet was formulated and C57BL/6J mice were assigned into the following groups: amino acid-defined control diet and control diet supplemented with Leu, isoleucine, or valine.

Introduction: Esophagectomy is a major surgery with a high degree of catabolic and post-surgical inflammatory response accompanied by high morbidity and significant mortality. Post-surgical nutritional support via enteral administration of ω-3 fatty acids has been seen to be effective although its bad tolerance. There are few clinical trials with parenteral ω-3 fatty acids in these patients. Read More

Hyperuricemia contributes to chronic kidney disease development. However, it has been historically viewed with limited research interest. In this study, we mimicked the development of hyperuricemic nephropathy by using a potassium oxonate-induced hyperuricemia rat model. Read More
