Dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and oleate enhances exercise training effects in patients with metabolic syndrome.

We studied the effects of exercise training alone or combined with dietary supplementation of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (Ω-3PUFA) and oleate on metabolic syndrome (MSyn) components and other markers of cardiometabolic health.

Defective ceramide synthases in mice cause reduced amplitudes in electroretinograms and altered sphingolipid composition in retina and cornea.

Complex sphingolipids are strongly expressed in neuronal tissue and contain ceramides in their backbone. Ceramides are synthesized by six ceramide synthases (CerS1-6). Although it is known that each tissue has a unique profile of ceramide synthase expression and ceramide synthases are implicated in several neurodegenerative disorders, the expression of ceramide synthase isoforms was never investigated in the retina.

Minimal clinically important difference of the lower-extremity fugl-meyer assessment in chronic-stroke.

The Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID), the smallest difference in the treatment outcome, augments both clinical and research practice. The MCID of the Fugl-Meyer assessment: Lower extremity (FMA-LE), an important motor measure in stroke, is not known.

Controlled water vapor transmission rate promotes wound-healing via wound re-epithelialization and contraction enhancement.

A desirable microenvironment is essential for wound healing, in which an ideal moisture content is one of the most important factors. The fundamental function and requirement for wound dressings is to keep the wound at an optimal moisture.

Hitting the ground running: Evaluating an integrated racehorse limb and race surface computational model.

Race surface mechanics contribute to musculoskeletal injury in racehorses. These mechanics affect ground reaction forces applied to the hoof, and thus limb motions during stance that can contribute to musculoskeletal pathologies.

Effects of different cusp coverage restorations on the fracture resistance of endodontically treated maxillary premolars.

Cusp coverage restorations for the restoration of endodontically treated teeth represent a more conservative approach in terms of function and esthetics. However, limited scientific data are available regarding the optimum reduction design and thicknesses.

Anorectal Function and Quality of Life after Transrectal Rigid-Hybrid Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Sigmoidectomy.

In transrectal rigid-hybrid natural orifice translumenal endoscopic sigmoidectomy (trNS), extraction-site laparotomy is avoided, which reduces postoperative pain and improves recovery time. However, current research evaluating anorectal function after trNS is limited.
