Influence of Free #Fatty Acid Concentrations and #Weight Loss on Adipose Tissue Direct Free Fatty Acid Storage Rates

The factors that determine the recycling of free fatty acids (FFA) back into different adipose tissue depots via the direct storage pathway are not completely understood. ObjectiveTo assess the interactions between adipocyte factors and plasma FFA concentrations that determine regional FFA storage rates. DesignWe measured direct adipose tissue FFA storage rates before and after weight …

The Relationship Between Prognostic #Nutritional Index and All-Cause #Mortality in Critically Ill Patients: A Retrospective Study

The effectiveness and prognostic value of the prognostic nutritional index (PNI) in critically ill patients are unknown. Hence, this study aimed to analyze the relationship between the PNI and all-cause mortality in critically ill patients. Patients and Methods: Patient data were obtained from the Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in Intensive Care III database. The relationship between …
