PURPOSE OF REVIEW:
'Biomarkers of remodeling' represent a loose collection of features referring to several biological adaptations of the lung to cope with stressing factors. In addition, remodel-'ing' infers a dynamic process that would require a spatiotemporal resolution. This review focuses on d…

Addition of trans fat and alcohol has divergent effects on atherogenic diet-induced liver injury in rodent models of steatohepatitis.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcoholic liver disease (ALD) are common causes of chronic liver disease. The overlap between ALD and NAFLD suggests the existence of metabolic steatohepatitis. Development of in vivo models that reflect various aspects of human steatohepatitis is essenti…

Multinutrient Supplementation Increases Collagen Synthesis during Early Wound Repair in a Randomized Controlled Trial in Patients with Inguinal Hernia.

BACKGROUND:
Inguinal hernia disease is associated with an imbalanced collagen metabolism. Surgical stress has a negative impact on nutrients important for collagen synthesis.

OBJECTIVE:
We hypothesized that supplementation with a combination of nutrients would enhance collagen biosynthesis in i…
