    • A functional virgin olive oil enriched with olive oil and thyme phenolic compounds improves the expression of cholesterol efflux-related genes: A randomized, crossover, controlled trial 

      Farràs, Marta; Arranz, Sara; Carrión Bolorino, Silvia; Subirana Cachinero, Isaac; Muñoz-Aguayo, Daniel; Blanchart, Gemma; Kool, Marjon; Solà, Rosa; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Escolà Gil, Joan Carles; Rubió Piqué, Laura; Fernández Castillejo, Sara; Pedret, Anna; Estruch Riba, Ramon; Covas Planells, María Isabel; Fitó, Montserrat; Hernáez Camba, Álvaro; Castañer, Olga (MDPI, 2019)
      The consumption of antioxidant-rich foods such as virgin olive oil (VOO) promotes high-density lipoprotein (HDL) anti-atherogenic capacities. Intake of functional VOOs (enriched with olive/thyme phenolic compounds (PCs)) ...
    • Determinants of HDL Cholesterol Efflux Capacity after Virgin Olive Oil Ingestion: Interrelationships with Fluidity of HDL Monolayer 

      Fernández Castillejo, Sara; Rubió Piqué, Laura; Hernáez Camba, Álvaro; Catalán Santos, Úrsula; Pedret, Anna; Valls, Rosa M.; Mosele, Juana; Covas Planells, María Isabel; Remaley, Alan T.; Castañer, Olga; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Solà, Rosa (WILEY‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, 2017-09-08)
      Scope: Cholesterol efflux capacity of HDL (CEC) is inversely associated with cardiovascular risk. HDL composition, fluidity, oxidation, and size are related with CEC. We aimed to assess which HDL parameters were CEC ...
    • Effect of virgin olive oil and thyme phenolic compounds on blood lipid profile: implications of human gut microbiota 

      Martín Peláez, Sandra María; Mosele, Juana; Pizarro, Neus; Farràs, Marta; De la Torre, Rafael; Subirana Cachinero, Isaac; Pérez Cano, Francisco José; Castañer, Olga; Solà, Rosa; Fernández Castillejo, Sara; Heredia, Saray; Farré, Magí; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Fitó, Montserrat (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-11-05)
      Purpose: To investigate the effect of virgin olive oil phenolic compounds (PC) alone or in combination with thyme PC on blood lipid profile from hypercholesterolemic humans, and whether the changes generated are related ...
    • Influence of phenol-enriched olive oils on human intestinal immune function 

      Martín Peláez, Sandra María; Castañer, Olga; Solà, Rosa; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Castell, Margarida; Pérez Cano, Francisco José; Fitó, Montserrat (MDPI, 2016)
      Olive oil (OO) phenolic compounds (PC) are able to influence gut microbial populations and metabolic output. Our aim was to investigate whether these compounds and changes affect the mucosal immune system. In a randomized, ...
    • Phenol-enriched olive oils modify paraoxonase-related variables: A randomized, crossover, controlled trial 

      Fernández Castillejo, Sara; García Heredia, Ana Isabel; Solà, Rosa; Camps, Jordi; López de las Hazas Mingo, María del Carmen; Farràs, Marta; Pedret, Anna; Catalán Santos, Úrsula; Rubió Piqué, Laura; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Castañer, Olga; Covas Planells, María Isabel; Valls, Rosa M. (Wiley, 2017-05)
      Scope:Low paraoxonase (PON)1 activities, and high PON1 and low PON3 protein levels arecharacteristic of cardiovascular disease. Our aim was to assess short- and long-term effects ofvirgin olive oils (VOO), enriched with ...
    • Polyphenol rich olive oils improve lipoprotein particle atherogenic ratios and subclasses profile: a randomized, crossover, controlled trial 

      Fernández Castillejo, Sara; Valls, Rosa M.; Castañer, Olga; Rubió Piqué, Laura; Catalán Santos, Úrsula; Pedret, Anna; Macià i Puig, Ma Alba; Sampson, Maureen L.; Covas Planells, María Isabel; Fitó, Montserrat; Motilva Casado, Mª José; Remaley, Alan T.; Solà, Rosa (Wiley, 2016-07-08)
      Scope—Lipoprotein particle measures performed by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and associated ratios, may be better markers for atherosclerosis risk than conventional lipid measures. The effect of two functional olive ...
