Increases in aortic pulse wave velocity, a measure of arterial stiffness, can lead to elevated systolic blood pressure and increased cardiac afterload in adulthood. These changes are detectable in ...

Abstract Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3) and oleic acid (18:1n-9) can alter the DNA methylation of individual CpG loci in vivo and in vitro, although the targeting mechanism is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that the targeting of altered methylation is associated with putative transcription factor response elements (pTREs) proximal to modified loci. Jurkat cells were treated with 22:6n-3 or 18:1n-9 (both 15 μM) for eight days and DNA methylation measured using the MethylationEPIC 850K arr...

Abstract Recently, 3 large randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have assessed the effects of supplementation with marine omega-3 fatty acids on the occurrence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) events. We reviewed this evidence and considered it in the context of the large and growing body of data on the CV health effects of marine omega-3s. One RCT examining 8179 patients, most with coronary heart disease (CHD), reported that 4 grams/day of a highly purified omega-3 product containing eicosapentaen...

: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is foremost among the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which account for 71% of deaths globally each year. CVD is also prominent among the pre-existing conditions still accounting for nearly 25% of maternal deaths and is linked to gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. Markers of CVD risk have been reported even in young children, related to prenatal factors such as mother's diet or body composition. The underlying mechanisms include epigenetic changes which can a...

Abstract Background Growing evidence exists about the fetal and environmental origins of hypertension, but mainly limited to single-exposure studies. The exposome has been proposed as a more holistic approach by studying many exposures simultaneously. Objectives This study aims to evaluate the association between a wide range of prenatal and postnatal exposures and blood pressure (BP) in children. Methods Systolic and diastolic BP were measured among 1,277 children from the European HELIX (Human...

Highlights •LAS is an important determinant of CV health and target organ damage. •LAS is an independent predictor of CV risk and may aid in clinical decision making in various clinical scenarios. •Multiple mechanisms can lead to LAS, but further research is required to identify key molecular determinants of LAS in humans. •LAS represents a high-priority therapeutic target to ameliorate the global burden of CV disease.

Background & Aims Many genetic and environmental factors, including family history, dietary fat, and inflammation, increase risk for colon cancer development. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα) is a nuclear receptor that regulates systemic lipid homeostasis. We explored the role of intestinal PPARα in colon carcinogenesis. Methods Colon cancer was induced in mice with intestine-specific disruption of Ppara (PparaΔIE), Pparafl/fl (control), and mice with disruption of Ppara ...

Importance Both low and high gestational weight gain have been associated with adverse maternal and infant outcomes, but optimal gestational weight gain remains uncertain and not well defined for all prepregnancy weight ranges. Objectives To examine the association of ranges of gestational weight gain with risk of adverse maternal and infant outcomes and estimate optimal gestational weight gain ranges across prepregnancy body mass index categories. Design, Setting, and Participants Individual pa...

Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) have important roles in physiological homeostasis. Numerous studies have provided extensive information about the roles of n-3 LCPUFA, such as docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. Arachidonic acid (ARA) is one of the major n-6 LCPUFAs and its biological aspects have been well studied. However, nutritional information for ARA is limited, especially in adult humans. This review presents a framework of dietary ARA intake and the effects of...

: To evaluate DNA methylation sites and gene expression associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) and the possible pathological mechanism involved, we performed (1) genome-wide DNA methylation and mRNA expression profiling in peripheral blood datasets from the Gene Expression Omnibus repository of CAD samples and controls; (2) functional enrichment analysis and differential methylation gene regulatory network construction; (3) validation tests of 11 differential methylation positions of inte...
