The effects of acute interval exercise and strawberry intake on postprandial lipemia (2017)
Journal Article
O’Doherty, A., Jones, H. S., Sathyapalan, T., Ingle, L., & Carroll, S. (2017). The effects of acute interval exercise and strawberry intake on postprandial lipemia. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 49(11), (2315-2323). doi:10.1249/MSS.0000000000001341. ISSN 0195-9131

Purpose: Raised postprandial triglycerides (TAG) and related oxidative stresses are strongly associated with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Acute exercise and strawberry ingestion independently ameliorate postprandial lipid excursions a... Read More

Pilot investigation of a virtual gastric band hypnotherapy intervention (2016)
Journal Article
Greetham, S., Goodwin, S., Wells, L., Whitham, C., Jones, H., Rigby, A., …Atkin, S. (2016). Pilot investigation of a virtual gastric band hypnotherapy intervention. International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, 64(4), (419-433). doi:10.1080/00207144.2016.1209037. ISSN 0020-7144

This was a pilot investigation of 30 men and women with a BMI > 27kg/m² over a 24 week period. It aimed to determine whether virtual gastric band (VGB) hypnotherapy has an effect on weight loss in overweight adults, compared to relaxation hypnotherap... Read More

The dietary flavonol quercetin ameliorates angiotensin II-induced redox signaling imbalance in a human umbilical vein endothelial cell model of endothelial dysfunction via ablation of p47ᵖʰᵒˣ expression (2016)
Journal Article
Jones, H. S., Gordon, A., Magwenzi, S. G., Naseem, K., Atkin, S. L., & Courts, F. L. (2016). The dietary flavonol quercetin ameliorates angiotensin II-induced redox signaling imbalance in a human umbilical vein endothelial cell model of endothelial dysfunction via ablation of p47ᵖʰᵒˣ expression. Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, 60(4), 787-797. https://doi.org/10.1002/mnfr.201500751

Scope: Quercetin is reported to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive but not normotensive humans, but the role of endothelial redox signaling in this phenomenon has not been assessed. This study investigated the effects of physiologically obtainable... Read More

Oxidized LDL activates blood platelets through CD36/NOX2–mediated inhibition of the cGMP/protein kinase G signaling cascade (2015)
Journal Article
Magwenzi, S., Woodward, C., Wraith, K. S., Aburima, A., Raslan, Z., Jones, H., …Naseem, K. M. (2015). Oxidized LDL activates blood platelets through CD36/NOX2–mediated inhibition of the cGMP/protein kinase G signaling cascade. Blood, 125(17), 2693-2703. doi:10.1182/blood-2014-05-574491

Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) promotes unregulated platelet activation in dyslipidemic disorders. Although oxLDL stimulates activatory signaling, it is unclear how these events drive accelerated thrombosis. Here, we describe a mechanism fo... Read More
