Measurement of fasted state gastric antral motility before and after a standard bioavailability and bioequivalence 240 mL drink of water: Validation of MRI method against concomitant perfused manometry in healthy participants. PLoS ONE, 15(11), e0241441. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0241441

Objective The gastrointestinal environment in which drug products need to disintegrate before the drug can dissolve and be absorbed has not been studied in detail due to limitations, especially invasiveness of existing techniques. Minimal in vivo da...

A Population-based PBPK Model for the Prediction of Time-Variant Bile Salt Disposition within GI Luminal Fluids (2020)
Journal Article
Stamatopoulos, K., Pathak, S., Marciani, L., & Turner, D. (2020). A Population-based PBPK Model for the Prediction of Time-Variant Bile Salt Disposition within GI Luminal Fluids. Molecular Pharmaceutics, 17(4), 1310-1323. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.molpharmaceut.0c00019

In vivo studies have shown cyclic bile salt (BS) outputs during fasting whereas higher amounts have been observed in fed states. This leads to fluctuations of intestinal BS concentrations ([BS]) that can affect the rate and extent of absorption of li...

The Differential Expression of ERAP1/ERAP2 and Immune Cell Activation in Pre-eclampsia (2020)
Journal Article
Stratikos, E., Warthan, M., Strauss, J. F., Kurlak, L. O., Seamon, K., Lee, E. D., …Kurlak, L. (2020). The Differential Expression of ERAP1/ERAP2 and Immune Cell Activation in Pre-eclampsia. Frontiers in Immunology, 11, https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2020.00396

Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a disorder of pregnancy, often leading to serious and fatal complications. Endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase 1 and 2 (ERAP1/ERAP2) are present in the placenta. They are involved in processes regulating blood pressure, angioge... Read More about The Differential Expression of ERAP1/ERAP2 and Immune Cell Activation in Pre-eclampsia.

Glycemic, Gastrointestinal, Hormonal and Appetitive Responses to Pearl Millet or Oats Porridge Breakfasts: a Randomized, Crossover Trial in Healthy Humans (2019)
Journal Article
Alyami, J., Whitehouse, E., Yakubov, G. E., Pritchard, S. E., Hoad, C. L., Blackshaw, E., …Marciani, L. (2019). Glycemic, Gastrointestinal, Hormonal and Appetitive Responses to Pearl Millet or Oats Porridge Breakfasts: a Randomized, Crossover Trial in Healthy Humans. British Journal of Nutrition, https://doi.org/10.1017/S0007114519001880

Whole grain cereal breakfast consumption has been associated with beneficial effects on glucose and insulin metabolism as well as satiety. Pearl millet is a popular ancient grain variety that can be grown in hot, dry regions. However, little is known...

Mitochondrial dysfunction causes Ca2+ overload and ECM degradation–mediated muscle damage in C. elegans (2019)
Journal Article
Sudevan, S., Takiura, M., Kubota, Y., Higashitani, N., Cooke, M., Ellwood, R. A., …Higashitani, A. (2019). Mitochondrial dysfunction causes Ca2+ overload and ECM degradation–mediated muscle damage in C. elegans. FASEB Journal, 33(8), 9540-9550. https://doi.org/10.1096/fj.201802298r

Mitochondrial dysfunction impairs muscle health and causes subsequent muscle wasting. This study explores the role of mitochondrial dysfunction as an intramuscular signal for the extracellular matrix (ECM)–based proteolysis and, consequentially, musc...

The acute transcriptional response to resistance exercise: impact of age and contraction mode (2019)
Journal Article
Deane, C. S., Ames, R. M., Phillips, B. E., Weedon, M. N., Willis, C. R., Boereboom, C., …Etheridge, T. (2019). The acute transcriptional response to resistance exercise: impact of age and contraction mode. Aging, 11(7), 2111-2126. https://doi.org/10.18632/101904

Optimization of resistance exercise (RE) remains a hotbed of research for muscle building and maintenance. However, the interactions between the contractile components of RE (i.e. concentric (CON) and eccentric (ECC)) and age, are poorly defined. We...

Simvastatin inhibits L-type Ca 2+ -channel activity through impairment of mitochondrial function (2019)
Journal Article
Curry, L., Almukhtar, H., Alahmed, J., Roberts, R., & Smith, P. A. (2019). Simvastatin inhibits L-type Ca 2+ -channel activity through impairment of mitochondrial function. Toxicological Sciences, 169(2), 543–552. https://doi.org/10.1093/toxsci/kfz068

Plasma membrane ion channels and mitochondrial electron transport complexes (mETC) are recognised “off-targets” for certain drugs. Simvastatin is one such drug, a lipophilic statin used to treat hypercholesterolaemia, but which is also associated wit...
