Selenium in infant formula milk.

Selenium in infant formula milk. Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2018;27(2):284-292 Authors: He MJ, Zhang SQ, Mu W, Huang ZW Abstract Formula-based animal milk is an alternative source of infant nutrition in many cases when breastfeeding is unacceptable or inaccessible; however, these replacements often have low selenium levels. The composition of infant formula milk should be as close as possible to that of human breast milk, both in content and chemical speciation. Selenium is an essential trace element for infants. Generally, human breast milk is the ideal food to ensure adequate infant Se intake. However, to date, sodium selenite or sodium selenate has been used as selenium supplementation in infant formula milk in most countries. This inorganic Se, which is not a natural component of food, may not be the optimal speciation for Se supplementation in infant formula milk. Advances in speciation in foods, especially in animal milk, suggest that future proposals for selenium speciation in human breast milk can lead to discussions regarding the most favorable methods of selenium supplementation in infant formula milk.

Conclusion: TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is an appropriate way to improve the patient’s postoperative physical appearance. The results of this study indicated that TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is safe, with an acceptably low number of complications and can be performed by a single surgeon in conjunction with a mastectomy procedure; furthermore, the majority of patients were satisfied with their reconstructed breast.

Authors: Lokejareonlarb S, Chamalerk P Abstract Background: Latissimus Dorsi flap (LD flap) has been used since the eighteenth century to cover large chest wall defects after total mastectomy and is thought to be superior to split thickness skin graft in terms of both cosmetic results and functionality. The outcomes and complications resulting from the use of LD flap reconstruction for large breast cancer are not well documented in Thailand. Objective: To describe a technique using the Latissimus Dorsi musculocutaneous flap for breast reconstruction. The outcomes, complications and length of stay after operatio...

Authors: Laohavinij S, Paul V, Maneenil K Abstract Background: Prognostic factors for survival of metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients are important for identifying risks and deciding on patient treatment; however, few studies of prognostic factors in MBC have been performed in Thailand. Objective: To determine the survival duration and prognostic factors for overall survival in metastatic breast cancer. Material and Method: This retrospective cohort study was conducted by reviewing 232 files of MBC patients treated in the Oncology Unit, Department of Medicine, Rajavithi Hospital from January 1st 2005 to...

Authors: Marinovich ML, Macaskill P, Bernardi D, Houssami N Abstract Introduction Tomosynthesis is proposed to improve breast cancer assessment and staging as a complementary role to its detection capability. We examine the accuracy of tomosynthesis in measuring tumor size relative to pathology and compared with other tests. Areas covered A systematic literature search identified studies of tomosynthesis in estimating the size of newly-diagnosed breast cancers. Descriptive analyses were performed due to heterogeneity in patients, technology and methods between studies. Eight studies were eligible (678 patients). Me...

AbstractMalignancies are one of the leading causes of mortality in women during their reproductive life. Treatment of gynecological malignant tumors during pregnancy is possible but not simple, since it creates a conflict between care of the mother and the fetus. BC is the most prevalent malignancy diagnosed in pregnancy, ranking up to 21% of all pregnancy-related malignancies. Due to its stets increasing prevalence, aggressive cancer subtype, and severe ethical and psychological aspects linked to the disease, experts raise an alarm for an acute necessity to improve the overall management of the PABC —the issue which...

The Cancer Expert Working Group on Cancer Prevention and Screening (CEWG) was set up in 2002 by the Cancer Coordinating Committee to review and assess local and international scientific evidence, and to formulate recommendations for cancer prevention and screening. After considering the local epidemiology, emerging scientific ...
