  The average daily consumption of seal oil by the Inuit people is approximately 8-9 g, yet there is very little information on the effect of seal oil consumption on cardiovascular disease risk factors. In this study, 19 healthy, normocholesterolemic subjects consumed 20 g of encapsulated seal oil...

  C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were measured in 105 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) during treatment with slow-acting anti-rheumatoid drugsD-penicillamine, alclofenac, hydroxychloroquine, gold, sulphasalazine and azathioprine. A control group treated with aspirin alone was also included....

  BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis is characterised by inflammatory synovitis, articular destruction, and accelerated atherogenesis. HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylcoenzyme A) reductase inhibitors (statins) mediate clinically significant vascular risk reduction in patients withoutinflammatory...

  Clinical trials in RA usually involve the use of several laboratory assessments of disease activity. Their use is not universal and the relative value of many novel assessments has not been determined in relation to existing clinical and laboratory methods. This study attempts to investigate the...
