- Flaxseed Ingestion Alters Ratio of Enterolactone Enantiomers in Human Serum. Saarinen, Niina M.; Smeds, Annika I.; Peñalvo, José L.; Nurmi, Tarja; Adlercreutz, Herman; Mäkelä, Sari // Journal of Nutrition & Metabolism;2010, p1
Enterolactone (EL) is an enterolignan found in human subjects. In this pilot study, the enantiomeric ratios of serum EL were determined in serum from healthy adults during consumption of habitual diet, and after an 8-day supplementation with flaxseed (25 g/day). (-)EL dominated in all serum...
- Discrimination of prolactinoma from hyperprolactinemic non-functioning adenoma. Jae Hong; Mi Lee; Sun Kim; Eun Lee // Endocrine (1355008X);Feb2010, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p140
