Journal Article
Ng, C., Dellschaft, N. S., Hoad, C., Marciani, L., Spiller, R., Crooks, C., …Smyth, A. R. (2024). A randomised crossover trial of tezacaftor-ivacaftor for gut dysfunction in cystic fibrosis with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes: a pilot study. NIHR Open Research, 3, Article 65. https://doi.org/10.3310/nihropenres.13510.2

Background People with cystic fibrosis (CF) can experience recurrent chest infections, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency and gastrointestinal symptoms. New cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator drugs improve lung funct...

Dynamics of T2* and deformation in the placenta and myometrium during pre-labour contractions (2022)
Journal Article
Hutter, J., Kohli, V., Dellschaft, N., Uus, A., Story, L., Steinweg, J. K., …Rutherford, M. A. (2022). Dynamics of T2* and deformation in the placenta and myometrium during pre-labour contractions. Scientific Reports, 12(1), Article 18542. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-022-22008-3

Pre-labour uterine contractions, occurring throughout pregnancy, are an important phenomenon involving the placenta in addition to the myometrium. They alter the uterine environment and thus potentially the blood supply to the fetus and may thus prov...

Small bowel water content assessed by MRI in health and disease: a collation of single-centre studies (2021)
Journal Article
Dellschaft, N., Hoad, C., Marciani, L., Gowland, P., & Spiller, R. (2022). Small bowel water content assessed by MRI in health and disease: a collation of single-centre studies. Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 55(3), 327-338. https://doi.org/10.1111/apt.16673

Background: New developments in MRI have allowed the non-invasive, accurate measurement of the small bowel water content (SBWC). Aims: To collate studies measuring SBWC following ingestion of a range of foods in both health and disease to provide dat...

The haemodynamics of the human placenta in utero (2020)
Journal Article
Dellschaft, N. S., Hutchinson, G., Shah, S., Jones, N. W., Bradley, C., Leach, L., …Gowland, P. A. (2020). The haemodynamics of the human placenta in utero. PLoS Biology, 18(5), Article e3000676. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.3000676

© 2020 Dellschaft et al. We have used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide important new insights into the function of the human placenta in utero. We have measured slow net flow and high net oxygenation in the placenta in vivo, which are cons... Read More about The haemodynamics of the human placenta in utero.

Housing temperature modulates the impact of diet-induced rise in fat mass on adipose tissue before and during pregnancy in rats (2019)
Journal Article
Albustanji, L., Perez, G. S., Alharethi, E., Aldiss, P., Bloor, I., Barreto-Medeiros, J. M., …Dellschaft, N. (2019). Housing temperature modulates the impact of diet-induced rise in fat mass on adipose tissue before and during pregnancy in rats. Frontiers in Physiology, 10, https://doi.org/10.3389/fphys.2019.00209

Aim: To investigate whether housing temperature influences rat adiposity, and the extent it is modified by diet and/or pregnancy. Housing temperature impacts on brown adipose tissue, that possess a unique uncoupling protein (UCP) 1, which, when activ...

Tissue cell stress response to obesity and its interaction with late gestational diet (2017)
Journal Article
Saroha, V., Dellschaft, N. S., Keisler, D. H., Gardner, D. S., Budge, H., Sebert, S. P., & Symonds, M. E. (2018). Tissue cell stress response to obesity and its interaction with late gestational diet. Reproduction, Fertility and Development, 30, https://doi.org/10.1071/RD16494

Intra-uterine growth restriction in late pregnancy can contribute to adverse long term metabolic health in the offspring. We utilised an animal (sheep) model of maternal dietary manipulation in late pregnancy, combined with exposure of the offspring...

Beyond obesity - thermogenic adipocytes and cardiometabolic health (2017)
Journal Article
Aldiss, P., Dellschaft, N. S., Sacks, H., Budge, H., & Symonds, M. E. (in press). Beyond obesity - thermogenic adipocytes and cardiometabolic health. Hormone Molecular Biology and Clinical Investigation, 31(2), https://doi.org/10.1515/hmbci-2017-0007

The global prevalence of obesity and related cardiometabolic disease continues to increase through the 21st century. Whilst multi-factorial, obesity is ultimately caused by chronic caloric excess. However, despite numerous interventions focussing on... Read More about Beyond obesity - thermogenic adipocytes and cardiometabolic health.

Effect of pre- and postnatal growth and post-weaning activity on glucose metabolism in the offspring (2015)
Journal Article
