ZentenoAbstractBiallelic mutations of the GCDH gene result in Glutaric Aciduria type 1 (GA1; OMIM #231670), an uncommon autosomal recessive inborn error caused by the deficiency of glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase (CCDH), a mitochondrial matrix protein involved in the degradation of l-lysine, L-hydroxylysine, and L...
Authors: Flores-Pérez JA, de la Rosa Oliva F, Argenes Y, Meneses-Garcia A Abstract Cancer is a complex group of diseases where different signaling pathways have been found to be deregulated, mainly related to cell proliferation, angiogenesis, metastasis, evasion of apoptosis and insensitivity to anti-growth sings among others. Diet plays a fundamental role in the treatment of the oncological patients, we must be aware that food can interact with certain types of cancer therapy. On the other hand, cancer therapies sometimes affect the patient's sense of smell, taste, appetite, gastric capacity or nutrient abs...
This study evaluated the relationship between exposure to aflatoxins and the nutritional status of young children. It covered 400 mothers with children aged 6-24 months. Their nutritional status assessed by measuring weight and height using standard procedures. Serum samples analysed for aflatoxin B1-lysine (AFB1-lys), a reliable biomarker of aflatoxin exposure. Child sickness and age, exposure to aflatoxin in foods, and albumin-normalised AFB1-lys level were found to be significantly (p
ConclusionThese data do not support a substantial effect of moderate hypoxia alone on the expression of FGF23, but they suggest that combined exercise and high-altitude exposure may temporarily induce FGF23 expression.
ConclusionsOur study demonstrated a sex-specific inverse effect of height on mortality from different major causes in rural Chinese adults.
ConclusionCarbohydrate intake is associated with an increased risk of developing MetS. Therefore, additional large prospective cohort studies are warranted to confirm our findings.
