One of the key factors leading to cardiovascular disease is endothelial dysfunction, but the mechanisms leading to endothelial dysfunction are complex and poorly understood. This paper provided an insight into the mechanisms of acute endothelial dysfunction following oral methionine loading and has implications in understanding endothelial dysfunction in cardiovascular disease, in particular atherosclerosis. This research, which has implications for cardiovascular health, was supported by the British Heart Foundation and undertaken at the Welsh Heart Research Institute in Cardiff. Tong was involved in the study design, recruitment of subjects and editing the manuscript.

The relationships between post-prandial lipaemia, endothelial function and oxidative stress in healthy individuals and patients with type 2 diabetes Anderson, R.A.; Evans, Marc; Ellis, G.R.; Graham, J.; Morris, Keith; Jackson, S.K.; Lewis, M.J.; Rees, A.; Frenneaux, M.P. (Elsevier, 2001)Post-prandial lipaemia (PPL) is a factor in atherogenesis and results in reversible endothelial dysfunction in healthy individuals. Oxidative stress and triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins have been implicated. Type 2 ...

Endothelial dysfunction in hyperandrogenic polycystic ovary syndrome is not explained by either obesity or ectopic fat deposition Sprung, Victoria; Jones, Helen; Pugh, Christopher J. A.; Aziz, Nabil F.; Daousi, Christina; Kemp, Graham; Green, Daniel; Cable, Timothy; Cuthbertson, Daniel J. (Portland Press, 2014-01-31)PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is associated with IR (insulin resistance), increased visceral fat and NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) all of which may contribute to endothelial dysfunction, an early marker of ...
