Maternal Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Status but not Prenatal Methylmercury exposure is associated with Children’s Language Functions at Age Five Years in the Seychelles

submitted by: msmulhern
Evidence from the Seychelles Child Development Nutrition Study suggests that maternal nutritional status can modulate the relationship between prenatal methylmercury (MeHg) exposure and developmental outcomes in children. The aim of this study was to investigate whether maternal PUFA status was a confounding factor in any possible associations between prenatal MeHg exposure and developmental outcomes at 5 y of age in the Republic of Seychelles. Maternal status of (n-3) and (n-6) PUFA were...

Non-surgical periodontal therapy reduces coronary heart disease risk markers: a randomized controlled trial

submitted by: drbokhari
Aim: Periodontal disease elevates systemic inflammatory markers strongly associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) risk. The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to investigate the effect of non-surgical periodontal therapy on systemic C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen and white blood cells in CHD patients. Materials and Methods: Angiographically proven CHD patients with periodontitis (n = 317) were randomized to intervention (n = 212) or control group (n = 105)....

Urinary a-carboxyethyl hydroxychroman can be used as a predictor of a-tocopherol adequacy, as demonstrated in the Energetics Study

submitted by: mtraber
Background: Other than the in vitro erythrocyte hemolysis test, no valid biomarkers of vitamin E status currently exist. Objective: We hypothesized that the urinary vitamin E metabolite a-carboxyethyl hydroxychroman (a-CEHC) could serve as a biomarker. Design: The relations between urinary a-CEHC, plasma a-tocopherol, and vitamin E intakes were assessed by using a previously validated multipass, Web-based, 24-h self-administered dietary recall, and we concurrently collected plasma and...
