Effects of commercially available non-nutritive sweeteners in an experimentally induced rat model of type 2 diabetes.
Non-nutritive sweeteners (NNSs) are becoming more popular as sugar substitutes for diabetic patients. Most studies have reported conflicting results and have used NNSs in their pure form; and not in the form consumed by ...
Fructose-fed streptozotocin-injected rat : an alternative model for type 2 diabetes.
The principal objective of this study was to develop an alternative non-genetic rat model for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats (190.56 ± 23.60g) were randomly divided into six groups namely: ...
Development of an alternative non-obese non-genetic rat model of type 2 diabetes using caffeine and streptozotocin.
The aim of the present study was to develop an alternative non-obese non-genetic rat model of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into six groups, namely: Normal Control (NC), ...
Studies on the possible mechanisms behind the anti-diabetic effects of Xylitol.
Background and Objectives: Sugar substitutes have gained popularity in the management of diabetes, obesity and related diseases, due to their low calorie content compared to sucrose. Recent studies have reported that ...
The application of volt/var optimisation on South African distribution power networks.
Electric power utilities can achieve cost savings by maximizing energy delivery efficiency and optimizing peak demand. Technical losses are influenced by both network impedances and currents. Power flow through distribution ...
An on-demand fixture manufacturing cell for mass customisation production systems.
Increased demand for customised products has given rise to the research of mass customisation production systems. Customised products exhibit geometric differences that render the use of standard fixtures impractical. ...
Effect of maturity and postharvest handling of prunus persica ‘landrace’ produced in KwaZulu-Natal: case study of physicochemical properties, tunnel solar drying and quality of processed products.
Farmers in KwaZulu-Natal produce peach fruit. However, they are faced with overwhelming losses of the fruit due to lack of proper handling techniques, skills and facility during postharvest. In addition, these farmers have ...
Commissioning of a refrigerant test unit and assessing the performance of refrigerant blends.
This study has two major purposes; to commission and to demonstrate that a new refrigerant test rig can be used for investigating the performance of different refrigerants and refrigerant blends. The motivation for this ...
