  1. ncbi Protein turnover and requirements in the healthy and frail elderly
    J A Morais
    Division of Geriatric Medicine, McGill Nutrition and Food Science Centre, MUHC Royal Victoria Hospital, Room H 6 61, 687 Pine Avenue, West, Montreal, QC, Canada H3A 1A1
    J Nutr Health Aging 10:272-83. 2006
    ..We propose that higher protein intakes for the elderly, and especially the frail population, than those presently recommended may minimize the sarcopenia of aging and thereby protect against some of the health risks of aging...
  2. doi Hyperaminoacidaemia at postprandial levels does not modulate glucose metabolism in type 2 diabetes mellitus
    M Bassil
    McGill Nutrition and Food Science Centre, MUHC Royal Victoria Hospital, 687 Pine Avenue West, H6 61, Montreal, QC, Canada H3A 1A1
    Diabetologia 54:1810-8. 2011
    ..However, the effect of hyperaminoacidaemia on glucose disposal in type 2 diabetic individuals remains to be determined...
  3. ncbi Whole-body protein turnover in the healthy elderly
    J A Morais
    McGill Nutrition and Food Science Centre, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Canada
    Am J Clin Nutr 66:880-9. 1997
    ..However, there is a reduced contribution by muscle to whole-body protein catabolism in older persons. This has potential implications for the nutrition of both normal and sick elderly persons...
  4. doi Postprandial hyperaminoacidaemia overcomes insulin resistance of protein anabolism in men with type 2 diabetes
    M Bassil
    McGill University Nutrition and Food Science Centre, McGill University Health Centre Royal Victoria Hospital, 687 Pine Avenue West, H6 61, Montreal, QC, Canada
    Diabetologia 54:648-56. 2011
    ..We hypothesised that this resistance is even worse during conditions that simulate the postprandial state, when anabolism should be maximal...
  5. ncbi Effects of oral hypoglycemic agents and diet on protein metabolism in type 2 diabetes
    R Gougeon
    McGill Nutrition and Food Science Center, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Diabetes Care 23:1-8. 2000
    ..We tested whether oral hypoglycemic agents (OHA), gliclazide with or without metformin, during an isoenergetic (ISO) and then a low-energy diet (LED) improve the altered kinetics of whole-body protein metabolism in type 2 diabetes...
  6. ncbi Elevations of plasma methylarginines in obesity and ageing are related to insulin sensitivity and rates of protein turnover
    E B Marliss
    McGill Nutrition and Food Science Centre, MUHC Royal Victoria Hospital, 687 Pine Avenue West, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1A1, Canada
    Diabetologia 49:351-9. 2006
    ..Plasma MA, i.e. asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA), symmetrical dimethylarginine (SDMA), and N -monomethyl-L-arginine (NMMA), lipids and body composition were measured...

    C Mourad
    McGill Nutrition and Food Science Centre, McGill Faulty of Medicine, University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Diabetes Obes Metab 11:819-22. 2009
    ..Conclusions: The decrease in factors associated with postprandial satiety with treatment is counterbalanced by higher GLP-1 and PYY(3-36). Medication may normalize the link between perception of hunger and subsequent food intake...
