Genome-wide association study of chronic periodontitis in a general German population

submitted by: ateumer
Aim: To identify loci associated with chronic periodontitis through a genome wide association study (GWAS). Materials and Methods: A GWAS was performed in 4032 individuals of two independent cross-sectional studies of West Pomerania (SHIP n=3365 and SHIP-TREND n=667) with the different periodontal case definitions. Samples were genotyped with the Affymetrix Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 or the Illumina Human Omni 2.5 array. Imputation of the HapMap as well as the 1000 Genomes based...

A diet rich in high glucoraphanin broccoli interacts with genotype to reduce discordance in plasma metabolite profiles through modulating mitochondrial function

submitted by: Andrew Chapple
Background: Observational and experimental studies suggest that diets rich in cruciferous vegetables and glucosinolates may reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Objective: We tested the hypothesis that a 12-wk dietary intervention with high-glucoraphanin (HG) broccoli would modify biomarkers of CVD risk and plasma metabolite profiles to a greater extent than interventions with standard broccoli or peas. Design: Subjects were randomly assigned to consume 400 g...
