Iron and a mixture of DHA and EPA supplementation, alone and in combination, affect bioactive lipid signalling and morbidity of iron deficient South African school children in a two-by-two randomised controlled trial
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2016)
We recently reported that iron supplementation increased respiratory morbidity in iron deficient South African children. This increase, however, was attenuated when iron was provided in combination with a mixture of DHA/EPA. ...
Bioavailable IGF-1 and its relation to the metabolic syndrome in a bi-ethnic population of men and women
(Georg Thieme Verlag, 2016)
Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), an insulin sensitivity and vasculoprotective factor, associates negatively with the metabolic syndrome. However, IGF-1 is reduced by factors such as inflammation, oxidative stress and ...
Inter-arm blood pressure difference and its relationship with retinal microvascular calibres in young individuals: the African-PREDICT study
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2016)
Background Bilateral systolic blood pressure (SBP) differences > 10 mmHg is a common finding in clinical practice. Such BP differences in older individuals are associated with peripheral vascular disease, linked to ...
Low immune cell ARA and high plasma 12-HETE and 17-HDHA in iron-deficient South African school children with allergy
Allergy has been associated with altered fatty acid and inflammatory status. In this cross-sectional study of 321 rural iron deficient (ID) South African children (aged 6–11 years), a subsample (n=111) of children with ...
Hyperpulsatile pressure, systemic inflammation and cardiac stress are associated with cardiac wall remodeling in an African male cohort: the SABPA study
Inflammation may contribute to an increase in cardiac wall stress through pathways related to cardiac remodeling. Cardiac remodeling is characterized by myocyte hypertrophy, myocyte death and modifications of the extracellular ...
