Personalized Nutrition Intervention Improves Health Status in Overweight/Obese Chinese Adults: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Juntao Kan, Jun Du et 9 al.

Jun 22, 2022 in Frontiers in Nutrition
Background Overweight and obesity increase the risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). Personalized nutrition (PN) approaches may provide tailored nutritional advice/service by focusing on individual"s unique characteristics to prevent against NCDs. Objective We aimed to compare the effect of PN intervention with the traditional “one size fits all” intervention on health status in overweight/obe...


The Role of β Carotene in Colonic Inflammation and Intestinal Barrier Integrity

Junrui Cheng et 4 al.

Sep 27, 2021 in Frontiers in Nutrition
Background : Carotenoids are naturally occurring pigments accounting for the brilliant colors of fruits and vegetables. They may display antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties in humans besides being precursors to vitamin A. There is a gap of knowledge in examining their role within colonic epithelial cells. We proposed to address this research gap by examining the effects of a major dietary...


The combination of wheat peptides and fucoidan protects against chronic superficial gastritis and alters gut microbiota: a double-blinded, placebo-controlled study.

Juntao Kan, Jun Du et 8 al.

Jun 22, 2019 in European journal of nutrition
Chronic gastritis is observed in almost half world population. Traditional medications against chronic gastritis might produce adverse effects, so alternative nutritional strategies are needed to prevent the aggravation of gastric mucosal damage. The aim of this study is to evaluate the protective effect of the combination of wheat peptides and fucoidan (WPF) on adults diagnosed with chronic super...

Ablation of systemic SIRT1 activity promotes nonalcoholic fatty liver disease by affecting liver-mesenteric adipose tissue fatty acid mobilization

Junrui Cheng et 8 al.

Aug 1, 2017 in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Molecular Basis of Disease
Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) has been reported to protect against nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) development. The mechanism of how SIRT1 deacetylase activity affects NAFLD has not been well investigated. The current investigation addressed the causal effect of systemic SIRT1 activity on NAFLD development and the underlying mechanism involved in both liver and mesenteric adipose tissue (MAT). Both S...


An improved AEA using local search and its application to parameter estimation for homogeneous mercury oxidation

Junrui Cheng, Shaojun Li et 2 al.

Feb 1, 2015 in Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems
The Alopex-based evolutionary algorithm (AEA) possesses the basic characteristics of evolutionary algorithms as well as the advantages of the simulated annealing algorithm and gradient descent methods. The AEA is good at exploration but poor at exploitation, which results to some extent in poor convergence. To improve the performance of the basic AEA, we propose a local search algorithm in this p...

Tomato Powder Inhibits Hepatic Steatosis and Inflammation Potentially Through Restoring SIRT1 Activity and Adiponectin Function Independent of Carotenoid Cleavage Enzymes in Mice

Cheng-Chung Li et 10 al.

Dec 20, 2017 in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research
SCOPE Beta-carotene-15,15`-oxygenase (BCO1) and beta-carotene-9`,10`-oxygenase (BCO2) metabolize lycopene to biologically active metabolites, which can ameliorate nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We investigate the effects of tomato powder (TP containing substantial lycopene (2.3 mg/g)) on NAFLD development and gut microbiome in the absence of both BCO1 and BCO2 in mice. METHOD AND RESUL...


Improved Alopex-based evolutionary algorithm by Gaussian copula estimation of distribution algorithm and its application to the Butterworth filter design

Yihang Yang, Shaojun Li et 4 al.

Oct 26, 2017 in International Journal of Systems Science
ABSTRACT The application of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) is becoming widespread in engineering optimisation problems because of their simplicity and effectiveness. The Alopex-based evolutionary algorithm (AEA) possesses the basic characteristics of heuristic search algorithms but is lacking in adequate information about the fitness landscape of the input domain, reducing the convergence speed. To...

Interaction of ciprofloxacin with the activated sludge of the sewage treatment plant

Kan Wang, Jie Yu et 7 al.

Oct 16, 2018 in Environmental Science and Pollution Research
Interaction of ciprofloxacin with the activated sludge of the sewage treatment plant is of importance for the ciprofloxacin migration and risk control. More than 96.0% ciprofloxacin was removed through the sludge adsorption. The sludge surface charge varied little with ciprofloxacin since most ciprofloxacin was dissociated into the neutral one. No obvious shift was observed for the soluble carbohy...
