The onset of chronic disease is often the prelude to the subsequent physiological and mental twilight in the aging population of modern society. While rates of obesity, specific types of cancer and cardiovascular disorders seem to be on the rise in this group, many new therapies have addressed diseases that have been largely untreatable in the past. Alzheimer's disease has also recently come to the forefront of ongoing maladies most typically associated with an aging population. Ironically, though, many people seem to be living longer than expected. Recent biochemical, nutritional and genomic approaches have been able to elucidate some of the complex mechanisms, which lead to chronic diseases associated with an aging population such as Alzheimer's, metabolic syndrome, tumor metastasis and cardiovascular disease. These diseases and their sequalae seem to be related in many respects, with the common culprit being the inflammatory environment created by the presence of excess fat - particularly within the vascular network. Although a substantial effort has been focused on the development of new-line therapeutics to address these issues, nutrition and overall fitness and their effects on stalling or potentially reversing the advent of these diseases has not been fully embraced in the research arena. This review discusses the role of the inflammatory environment in the development of chronic diseases in the aging population and also proposes a common pathology. The benefits that improvements and dedication in nutrition and fitness approaches may offer at the molecular level are also discussed. © 2013 Taylor & Francis. Source


A process for recovering an onium hydroxide from a composition containing onium ions and a process residue, including providing a composition containing onium ions and a process residue; adding a quantity of a surfactant to the composition to obtain a surfactant-modified composition; providing a cation exchange media; collecting the onium ions by applying the surfactant-modified composition to the cation exchange media wherein the onium ions become bound to and retained by the cation exchange media and the process residue and the surfactant do not become bound to the cation exchange media and are substantially not retained by the cation exchange media; and recovering the onium ions from the cation exchange media as an onium hydroxide by applying a cation-containing hydroxide composition to the cation exchange media.


A process for separating organic compounds from a mixture by reverse-phase displacement chromatography, including providing a hydrophobic stationary phase; applying to the hydrophobic stationary phase a mixture comprising organic compounds to be separated; displacing the organic compounds from the hydrophobic stationary phase by applying thereto an aqueous composition comprising a non-surface active hydrophobic cationic displacer molecule and about 10 wt % or less of an organic solvent; and collecting a plurality of fractions eluted from the hydrophobic stationary phase containing the separated organic compounds; in which the non-surface active hydrophobic cationic displacer molecule comprises a hydrophobic cation and a counterion, CI, having the general formula A or B, as defined in the disclosure:
