Breast-fed infants are more resistant to disease and infection early in life than formula-fed children. Breast-fed infants have decreased incidence of diarrhea ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (2010-05-14) Emerging research suggests that high protein diets may have a role in preventing obesity, sarcopenia, diabetes, and optimizing muscle mass and bone health. Evidence is mounting that these benefits may be in part due to ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (2018-04-27) Iron deficiency is reported as the most common nutrient deficiency worldwide. Due to rapid growth and low iron stores at birth, infants are at particular risk for developing iron deficiency. Further, iron deficiency is ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (2018-08-29) Carotenoids and vitamin E (α-Tocopherol; αT), the two most plentiful groups of lipophilic antioxidants in plants, serve important functions in the human body. The carotenoid lutein is prevalent in green leafy vegetables ... application/pdf PDF (4MB) • (2008) Epidemiologic studies suggest that tomato and lycopene consumption and serum lycopene concentrations are inversely related to prostate cancer occurrence. The oldest, and possibly most cited potential mechanism of action, ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (1998) The biochemical mechanisms contributing to 'zinc deficiency-induced anorexia' are not understood, although the recent discovery of hypothalamic appetite-controlling neuropeptides suggests that this anorexia may ultimately ... application/pdf PDF (4MB) • (2008) The incidence of type 2 diabetes is rapidly expanding. Some of the more obvious pathologies associated with it include: defective glucose metabolism, obesity, cardiovascular disease and an inability to mount an effective ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (1997) In a final study, CHB was found to mediate a monofunctional DNA-directed increase in GST subunit Ya$\sb2,$Yc$\sb2$and QR mRNA levels, without a concomitant increase in mRNA levels of CYP 1A. This suggests that, in the ... application/pdf PDF (8MB) • (1997) Neonatal hypoglycemia is common in infants of diabetic mothers (IDM). The hypoglycemia is believed to result from persistent insulin hypersecretion due to the elevated glucose concentration in utero. The mechanism for the ... application/pdf PDF (8MB) • (1998) The second specific aim of this research was to investigate the regulation of insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 production following exercise. Prolonged exercise increased plasma and hepatic levels of IGFBP-1. ... application/pdf PDF (8MB) • (2015-08-20) Vaginal microbes exert a strong influence on women's reproductive health.

The gut microbiota is thought to be a contributor in the development of obesity by fermentation of non-digestible polysaccharides to ... application/pdf PDF (6MB) • (2018-12-06) Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third leading cause of cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States (US). Recent evidence links consumption of a diet high in animal protein and fat as an ... application/pdf PDF (5MB) • (2012-06-27) Obesity is associated with a host of co-morbidities including hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, Type II diabetes (T2D), and cognitive deficit. The present study examined the modulation of weight, blood metabolites, ... application/pdf PDF (1MB) • (2007) Sulforaphane increases gene expression through binding of the Nrf2 transcription factor to the antioxidant response element (ARE) in the promoter region of target genes. Because SF and ER increased MRP1 expression at the ... application/pdf PDF (3MB) • (2004) Pancreatic beta-cells may balance glucose-stimulated insulin synthesis and secretion with the proteasome activity to regulate protein concentrations in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). During this process, reactive oxygen ... application/pdf PDF (11MB) • (1998) Conclusions. Interferon-$\gamma,$but not IFN-$\alpha,$has a direct pathogenic role on the pancreatic$\beta$-cell. Early expression of IFN-$\alpha$by the$\beta$-cell may contribute to insulitis whereas IFN-$\gamma,\$ a ...
