Replacing meat with fish

Replacing The Processed Meat With Fish In Danish Diet

A Danish diet has lot of fat in it because of the high intake of the red and processed meat. But if they replace the meat with fish they will gain a lot of health benefit; according to calculations from the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark. Men over 50 and women of childbearing…

Monostroma nitidum

Anticoagulant and Antithrombotic Properties Of Monostroma nitidum

Thrombus usually occurs in vessels with severe atherosclerotic disease and may embolize; to cause transient ischemic attacks and cerebral infarctions. Thrombosis is a result of an activation process of thrombin that converts fibrinogen into fibrin; eventually resulting in insoluble fibrin polymer or clot. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 reported that the ischemic heart…

Health Benefit: Substituting Red And Processed Meat With Fish

The average Dane will gain a health benefit from substituting part of the red and processed meat in their diet with fish; according to calculations from the National Food Institute; Technical University of Denmark. Men over 50 and women of childbearing age, in particular, would benefit from such a change in diet. Fish is an…

Chemotherapeutic Agents For Human Bladder Cancer

In the US, bladder cancer is the second most frequent genitourinary malignant tumor and is a fatal disease. Most human bladder cancers belong to the category of transitional cell carcinoma, which can further divide into invasive and non-invasive bladder cancer. T2 and higher stages of muscle-invasive bladder cancer have a poor prognosis and a high…

Hypertension

Antihypertensive Effect In Vivo Of QAGLSPVR

Hypertension is considering a public cardiovascular disease and an important risk factor of myocardial infarction; cerebral infarction, and renal failure. Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE); plays a key role in controlling hypertension. ACE inhibition is an important method often using to treat high blood pressure. Previous studies show that many peptides from food materials have ACE…

Cellular connective tissue

Edaravone-Loaded Alginate: Chronic Wound Healing

The final remodeling phase involves the formation of cellular connective tissue and strengthening of the newly formed epithelium. Elevated and sustained reactive oxygen species (ROS); have in vivo and have with impaired wound repair in chronic non-healing wounds. Excessive ROS can directly or indirectly degrade extracellular matrix proteins via proteolysis activation. However low-level ROS play…

Retinal Ganglion Cells

Marine-Steroid Derivative Protects Retinal Ganglion Cells

Retinal ischemia has well-recognized as a key pathological factor for various eye diseases, including acute glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal arterial occlusion. Among these, acute glaucoma is the most common and hazardous eye disorder, especially in East Asian ethnicities. Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injuries of the retina in glaucoma are mainly by the rapid elevation and reduction…

Microalgae

Marine Natural Products From Microalgae

The advent of the -omics era, and the development of the related technologies for the acquisition and analysis of the number of big datasets available; has revolutionized biological research. This holistic approach promises to discover and understand new patterns and has diverse and important applications in the field of biotechnology. In the last decade, growing…

Dyslipidemia

Effect Of Arthrospira: A Systematic Physical Exercise Program

Dyslipidemia is an abnormal clinical condition by the altered level of one or more plasma lipids; including but not restricted to total (TC), low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C); cholesterol and triglycerides (TG). Dyslipidemias often increase concomitantly with body mass index (BMI) and central adiposity; increasing the risk for metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases…

Muricidae Molluscs

The Biosynthetic Origin Of Tyrian Purple In Muricidae Molluscs

Many marine invertebrates produce secondary metabolites that contribute to a suite of ecological roles; including paralyzing their prey and preventing predation, pathogens, surface fouling, and competitors. Beyond the ecological roles of the secondary metabolites; these chemicals also provide opportunities that aid human society in the form of novel bio-products. A large number of marine natural…

Antioxidant Peptides From Protein Hydrolysate Of Dasyatis Akajei

Superfluous reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced under oxidative stress conditions and they can destroy all types of macromolecules; which further lead to many health disorders, such as cancer, diabetes mellitus, and inflammatory diseases. In addition, oxidative decomposition of unsaturated lipids causes food rancidity; shortens the shelf-life of food products. Antioxidant peptides (APs) from food…

Marine-Derived Fungus Strain

New Diketopiperazines From A Marine-Derived Fungus Strain

Marine-derived fungi are to excellent resources for novel secondary metabolites and many lead compounds have for drug development. Aspergillus versicolor, a slow-growing filamentous fungus, normally are found in air, soil, marine sediment, corrupted plants, and agricultural products. Previous chemical investigations on the fungus Aspergillus versicolor from different environments have resulted in the identification of new secondary…
