  • The bile duct ligated rat : a relevant model to study muscle mass loss in cirrhosis 

    Bosoi, Cristina R.; Macedo de Oliveira, Mariana; Ochoa-Sanchez, Rafael; Tremblay, Mélanie; Ten Have, Gabriella A.; Deutz, Nicolaas E. P.; Rose, Christopher; Bémeur, Chantal (Springer, 2016-12)
    Muscle mass loss and hepatic encephalopathy (complex neuropsychiatric disorder) are serious complications of chronic liver disease (cirrhosis) which impact negatively on clinical outcome and quality of life and increase mortality. Liver disease leads ...
  • Brain edema : a valid endpoint for measuring hepatic encephalopathy? 

    Bémeur, Chantal; Cudalbu, Cristina; Dam, Gitte; Thrane, Alexander S.; Cooper, Arthur J. L.; Rose, Christopher (2016-06)
    Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a major complication of liver failure/disease which frequently develops during the progression of end-stage liver disease. This metabolic neuropsychiatric syndrome involves a spectrum of symptoms, including cognition ...
  • Effect of dietary sodium restriction on taste perception of sodium chloride 

    Blais, Christina (1985)
    The effect of dietary sodium restriction on perceived intensity of and preference for the taste of salt was evaluated in 76 adults, 25-49 years, with diastolic blood pressure between 79-90 mmHg. Participants were volunteers from clinical Hypertension ...
  • Mechanisms of lipid malabsorption in Cystic Fibrosis: the impact of essential fatty acids deficiency 

    Peretti, Noël; Marcil, Valérie; Drouin, Éric; Levy, Emile (2005)
    Transport mechanisms, whereby alimentary lipids are digested and packaged into small emulsion particles that enter intestinal cells to be translocated to the plasma in the form of chylomicrons, are impaired in cystic fibrosis. The purpose of this paper ...
  • The positive impact of red palm oil in school meals on vitamin A status: study in Burkina Faso 

    Zeba, Augustin Nawidimbasba; Prével, Yves; Somé, Issa; Delisle, Hélène (2006)
    BACKGROUND:Vitamin A (VA) deficiency is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa and school-age children are a vulnerable group. In Burkina Faso, the production and consumption of red palm oil (RPO) is being promoted as a food supplement for VA. The objective ...
  • Progressive resistance training prevents loss of muscle mass and strength in bile duct‐ligated rats 

    Aamann, Luise; Ochoa-Sanchez, Rafael; Macedo de Oliveira, Mariana; Tremblay, Mélanie; Bémeur, Chantal; Gitte, Dam; Vilstrup, Hendrik; Aagaard, Niels Kristian; Rose, Christopher (Wiley, 2018-11-05)
    BACKGROUND: Loss of muscle mass and strength is common in cirrhosis and increases the risk of hyperammonaemia and hepatic encephalopathy. Resistance training optimizes muscle mass and strength in several chronic diseases. However, the ...
  • The role of NGOs in global health research for development 

    Delisle, Hélène; Roberts, Janet; Munro, Michelle; Jones, Lori; Gyorkos, Theresa W. (2005)
    BACKGROUND:Global health research is essential for development. A major issue is the inequitable distribution of research efforts and funds directed towards populations suffering the world's greatest health problems. This imbalance is fostering major ...
  • Targeting the muscle for the treatment and prevention of hepatic encephalopathy 

    Rombouts, Krista; Bémeur, Chantal; Rose, Christopher (Elsevier, 2016-08)
    Muscle mass loss or sarcopenia is a principle component of malnutrition which prevails in 65–90% of patients with end-stage liver disease [1]. Intuitively, the roots of malnutrition play a precipitating role in muscle catabolism. Undernutrition frequently ...
