  • Nutritional and metabolic aspects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in health and disease 

    Tully, Anne-Marie (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2000)
    The health benefits of fish oils, rich in the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are multi-faceted, spanning a number of human systems, including the cardiovascular, ...
  • Nutritional aspects of trans unsaturated fatty acids 

    Cantwell, Mary Margaret (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2000)
    Dietary trans unsaturated fatty acids from hydrogenated vegetable and fish oils have been shown to raise plasma low density lipoprotein cholesterol and lower high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels at 10%, 6% and 3% ...
  • Obesity, insulin resistance and Type 2 Diabetes in young Irish people 

    Finucane, Francis (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2008)
