The effects of dietary supplementation of taurine or glycine, the two amino acids involved in bile acid conjugation in the liver, on plasma and hepatic lipid concentrations were evaluated in rats fed a cholesterol-free diet. Three groups of male rats (140∼150g) were fed a cholesterol-free diet...
As part of research to establish a mathematical relationship between overall protein quality and in vivo protein digestibility/amino acid availability, proteins anticipated to have widely differing nutritional qualities were compared by estimating true ileal protein digestibility (TD) and...
An important goal in protein nutrition is the development of a reliable in vitro assay for measuring overall nutritional quality. Such an assay would be based on the assumption that quality depends on the content and availability of essential amino acids, values of which should be measurable in...
Twenty-five legally blind subjects were visited in their own homes in an attempt to make a preliminary assessment of their nutritional status. Standing heights and weights were taken. Twenty-four hour recalls of the previous day's dietary intake were taken on three different days and some...
Bioavailability of iron in soybean hull was investigated by hemoglobin regeneration efficiency (HRE), body iron status and maze test in rat pups with iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) induced by iron deficiency of dams during gestation or lactation (GID or LID group, respectively) and normal pups (N...
To determine the vitamin A status of children with severe illnesses, we compared retinol concentrations in the liver and serum, histopathology of liver, and clinical complications in subjects who died in a diarrheal hospital. The median age of the study children (12 boys and 11 girls) was 24...
Registered Dietitians' (RD) knowledge and attitudes about the safety, adequacy and health benefits of vegetarian diets were estimated. A questionnaire was developed with demographic, knowledge, and attitude questions and was completed by 182 RDs from Washington, Nebraska and Vermont. The results...
Human alcohol abusers have increased vulnerability to infections. It has been hypothesized that one contributing cause of this vulnerability is the detrimental effect of alcohol on neutrophil function. In order to test this hypothesis, we have evaluated the chemotactic responsiveness of the...
