French Fries Are The No. 1 Vegetable Toddlers Eat, Study Says

ARLINGTON, Va. (CBS Local) — A new study shows major gaps in food choices in youngster’s diets. More than 27 percent of young children do not consume a single discrete serving of vegetables on any given day, according to the Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study. Among the vegetables toddlers do eat — French fries are the no. 1 vegetable consumed. According to the study, after a child turns one their food choices tend to change as they eat more family foods. By age two, many children have preferences and eating habits that will last their lifetime — and that’s why health experts want parents to help their children create healthy eating behaviors. “Good nutrition during a child’s early years is particularly critical because it sets the stage for healthy eating throughout life,” said Dr. Wendy Johnson with Nutrition, Health and Wellness for Nestlé USA. “Exposing young children to a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, and a variety of foods and flavors, is important as children are forming their tastes and eating habits for life.” For the study, nearly 10,000 parents and caregivers of children under the age of four were surveyed for the study. Gerber began the study in 2002. It’s now conducted by Nestlé Research. The study also found that young children consume sweets and excess sodium.

In this study, the authors aimed to investigate the role of 6-thioguanine nucleotide (TGN) measurements, geno/phenotyping of thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT), and their mutual relationship with TG therapy in IBD. Methods: An international retrospective, multicenter cohort study was performed at 4 centers in the Netherlands (Máxima Medical Centre) and the United Kingdom (Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and East Surrey Hospital). Results: Overall, 526 6-TGN measurements were performed in 316 patients with IBD. The median daily dosage of TG was 20 mg/d (range 10–40 mg/...

Conclusions: Tac IPV6–24 was higher and more significantly associated with DSA development and/or late rejection than Tac IPV6–12, independent of Tac trough level. This is the first study to demonstrate the impact of high IPV on DSA development in Asian patients, and that Tac IPV is comparable between patients with and without CYPinh.

Conclusions: The consistency of the new FICA using a point-of-care testing device with LC-MS/MS and EMIT was inadequate, and the accuracy of EMIT and LC-MS/MS was inappropriate. Clinicians should be informed when switching MPA detection methods to avoid misleading results.

Conclusions: Similar to nontransplant patients, KT patients administered the standard 5-mg bid dosage had apixaban levels that were well within the recommended manufacturers' expected ranges. In addition, this dosage had minimal influence on immunosuppression and no effect on graft function.

Background: Dose escalation of adalimumab (ADA) for loss or response in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a common practice. Recent data suggest improved outcomes with an ADA concentration of 12 mcg/mL, but limited data are available on the ability to achieve a target concentration. The aim of this study was to determine the expected change in serum ADA concentration after a dose escalation performed every 7 days in patients with IBD. Methods: A retrospective cohort of patients with IBD receiving ADA was divided into every fourteen-day dosing, every 7-day dosing, and dose escalation (ie, q14 to q7 day dosing)....

Conclusions: A proficiency testing program by which laboratories are alerted to inaccuracies in their quantitation, pharmacokinetic modeling, and dose recommendations for busulfan in hematopoietic cell transplant recipients was developed. These rounds of proficiency testing suggests that additional educational efforts and proficiency rounds are needed to ensure appropriate busulfan dosing.
