Thesis
POHL, F. 2019. The potential application of rapeseed pomace extracts in the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Rapeseed pomace (RSP) is the waste/by-product obtained after edible oil production from Brassica napus and is currently used as animal feed. In an attempt to revalorize this by-product as a potential nutraceutical for the treatment or prevention of n...

Studies to determine the mechanisms of the anti-atherosclerotic effects of eicosapentaenoic acid: possible role for endocannabinoids? (2012)
Thesis
MICHEL, L. 2012. Studies to determine the mechanisms of the anti-atherosclerotic effects of eicosapentaenoic acid: possible role for endocannabinoids? Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFAs), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been shown to have cardioprotective and antiatherosclerotic actions. While it has been proposed that ω-3 PUFAs may structurally stabi...
