Abstract Objectives According to historical data, fasting has been practiced for millennia for different reasons, such as political, religious and to lose weight. However, up to now the biological response during fasting is not totally understood. Previous studies have shown that cytokines may control fat pad expansion, at least in part, due to the induction of lipolysis. Indeed, we have previously showed that mice with a lower inflammatory response, such as platelet-activating factor receptor k...

Abstract Inflammation induced by obesity contributes to insulin resistance and atherosclerosis. Indeed, high levels of proinflammatory cytokines trigger chronic low-grade inflammation and promote detrimental metabolic effects in the adipose tissue. On the other hand, inflammation seems to control fat pad expansion and to have important functions on lipolysis and glucose metabolism. Thus, it is possible that inflammation may also drive fat pad loss, as seen during long-fast periods. Herein, we ha...

Abstract Dietary fibers are complex carbohydrates resistant to digestive enzymes from gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Fibers are substrate for symbiotic microorganisms and when fermented give rise to short-chain fatty acid and gases. Diseases affecting the GI tract have been associated with altered microbiota and could benefit from dietary fiber uses. Herein, we review current knowledge about the use of dietary fiber to prevent or reverse diseases of the GI tract. There are few clinical studies usi...

Abstract The global rise in obesity rates is alarming since this condition is associated with chronic low-grade inflammation and secondary comorbidities as glucose intolerance, cardiovascular disease and liver damage. Therefore, a lot of dietary approaches are proposed to prevent and to treat obesity and its associated disorders. Virgin coconut oil (VCO) is well known as a functional food due to its significant amounts of medium-chain triglycerides. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of VCO...

Abstract Cisplatin (CDDP) is a chemotherapeutic agent widely used in several anticancer protocols for instance head and neck, testicle, ovarian, lung and peritoneal carcinomatosis. According to the literature, the use of CDDP is associated with several side effects; among them, we highlighted the mucositis. CDDP, when administered by IP, promoted significant intestinal epithelium alterations in an experimental model. Our research group has proposed that the incorporation of CDDP into long-circul...

Purpose Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are chronic inflammatory disorders with important impact on global health. Prebiotic and probiotic strategies are thought to be useful in the context of experimental IBD. Here, we compared the effects of preventive versus therapeutic treatment with a high fiber diet (prebiotic) in combination or not with Bifidobacterium longum (probiotic) in a murine model of chronic colitis.

Abstract Objective Acute inflammation is a normal response of tissue to an injury. During this process, inflammatory mediators are produced and metabolic alterations occur. Adipose tissue is metabolically activated, and upon food consumption, it disrupts the inflammatory response. However, little is known about the acute inflammatory response in joints that results from diet-induced adipose tissue remodeling. The objective of this study was to determine whether alterations in adipose tissue mass...

Stroke is one of the most frequent causes of death and disability worldwide causing a major clinical and socioeconomic impact. Although the pathophysiology of brain ischemia and reperfusion is complex, the inflammatory process plays an important role in pathogenesis, contributing to the expansion of brain injury. The 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) is a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of the leukotrienes and has been implicated and in the central nervous system (CNS) disorders such as Alzheimer's disease ...
