Nlrx1 regulates neuronal cell death
Background Regulation of cell death during neurodegeneration is one of the key factors that play a role in the speed at which a disease progresses. Out of several cellular pathways responsible for this progression, ...
Disturbance in uniformly 13C-labelled DHA metabolism in elderly human subjects carrying the apoE ε4 allele
Carrying the apoE ε4 allele (E4+) is the most important genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease. Unlike non-carriers (E4 − ), E4+ seem not to be protected against Alzheimer's disease when consuming fish. We hypothesised that ...
n-3 Fatty acid intake from marine food products among Quebecers: comparison to worldwide recommendations
Objective: To quantify marine food product consumption and EPA + DHA intake among Quebecers, and to compare the results with the most recent recommendations. Design: Data were obtained from a representative cross-sectional ...
Aging, cognitive decline, apolipoprotein E and docosahexaenoic acid metabolism
Au Canada, 17 millions d’adultes âgés entre 30–64 ans pourraient bénéficier d’une intervention en prévention pour diminuer leur risque de développer la maladie d’Alzheimer (MA). L’un des groupes les plus à risque de ...
Ageing and apoE change DHA homeostasis: relevance to age-related cognitive decline
Epidemiological studies fairly convincingly suggest that higher intakes of fatty fish and n-3 fatty acids are associated with reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). DHA in plasma is normally positively associated with ...
Omega-3 PUFA metabolism and brain modifications during aging
In Canada, 5.5 million (16% of Canadians) adults are >65 years old and projections suggest this number will be approximately 20% of Canadians by 2024. A major concern regarding old age is a decline in health, especially ...
Higher plasma n-3 fatty acid status in the moderately healthy elderly in southern Québec: higher fish intake or aging-related change in n-3 fatty acid metabolism?
Other titre : Plasma n-3 fatty acids in the elderly
The elderly reportedly have a significantly higher % of eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids in plasma and red cell lipids. However, these observations are from a few small studies and the health status ...
L'hypnose : une nouvelle avenue à considérer pour les professionnels de la réadaptation
"La douleur est un phénomène présent pour un grand nombre de personnes vues en ergothérapie (Hesselstrand, Samuelsson et Liedberg, 2015). Malgré les outils présentement à notre disposition, la gestion de la douleur chronique ...
Dietary omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and Alzheimer's disease: Interaction with apolipoprotein E genotype
Other titre : Fatty acids and ApoE genotype
Epidemiological studies suggest a protective role of omega-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) against Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, most intervention studies of supplementation with n-3 PUFA have yielded ...
The effectiveness of transcranial direct current stimulation as an add-on modality to graded motor imagery for treatment of complex regional pain syndrome: A randomized proof of concept study
BACKGROUND: The efficacy of graded motor imagery (GMI) for the management of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is supported by evidence, but its treatment effect remains generally modest. Transcranial direct current ...
