- Sarega N, Imam M, Esa N, Zawawi N, Ismail M. Effects of phenolic-rich extracts of Clinacanthus nutans on high fat and high cholesterol diet-induced insulin resistance. BMC Complement Altern Med. 2016;16:88 pubmed publisher..nutans, on the other hand, attenuated the metabolic effects and transcriptional changes induced by the HFHC diet. The results suggested that C.nutans may be a good source of functional ingredient for the prevention of insulin resistance. ..
- Wong W, Ismail M, Imam M, Zhang Y. Modulation of platelet functions by crude rice (Oryza sativa) bran policosanol extract. BMC Complement Altern Med. 2016;16:252 pubmed publisher..These findings serve as a scientific platform to further explore alternative therapies in cardiovascular diseases related to platelet malfunction. ..
- Adamu H, Imam M, Ooi D, Esa N, Rosli R, Ismail M. In utero exposure to germinated brown rice and its oryzanol-rich extract attenuated high fat diet-induced insulin resistance in F1 generation of rats. BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017;17:67 pubmed publisher..However, dams and offsprings of the GBR and OE groups had higher hepatic H3 acetylation. GBR and OE can be used as functional ingredients for the amelioration of HFD-induced epigeneticallymediated insulin resistance. ..
