Proinflammatory gene expression from peripheral blood cells in patients with fructose/lactose intolerance and healthy controls.

Background Nutrition with antioxidant capacity can have important effects on the proinflammatory status of individuals. Fruit and vegetable consumption was been reported to influence proinflammatory gene expression. Patients with fructose/lactose intolerance represent a group of controlled dieters. The current study assessed the potential difference of proinflammtory gene expression between fructose/lactose intolerant patients and healthy controls. Methods In total 71 subjects were investigated.
