DR JOHN FILDES (Las Vegas, NV): The authors are to be commended on a carefully designed and well-executed study of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and its association with clinical outcomes in sepsis. They have shown that GLP-1 levels are markedly altered after sepsis, but the implication is unclear. Persistently elevated GLP-1 levels are strongly predictive of death and severe functional disability at 6 months. The methods are well designed, statistical analysis is rigorous, and the results are both clearly stated and strongly supported by the data.

Thirty children with disabilities eligible for special education in elementary school and their parents were included. Each of them were interviewed with the Chinese version of Picture My Participation (PMP), separately,...

Nutrition&Food Science, Ahead of Print. Purpose Dietary fiber and energy intakes seem to be related to disability and anthropometric indices in multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system. So, this study was designed to investigate the association between dietary fiber and energy intakes with systemic inflammation, disease severity and anthropometric measurements in MS subjects. Design/methodology/approach Four subtypes of 261 MS volunteers were recruited (female = 210, male = 51; mean age 38.9 ± 8.3). A 168-item food frequency questionnaire and nutritionist IV software wer...
