Comment: Researchers found that local intestinal inflammation induced DNA damage to lymphocytes of the peripheral blood circulating throughout the body. This means that chromosome damage was not limited to the intestine, but involved tissues of the body distant from the site of inflammation. The chromosome damage in the peripheral circulating blood could be used as

Comment: The enzyme, coded for by the MEP1A gene, is a zinc-containing metalloprotease called meprin, and is abundant in the intestine. A protease is an enzyme that breaks down proteins in the body. he researchers concluded that a particular defect in the MEP1A gene is an indicator of vulnerability to IBD, particularly ulcerative colitis. The

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory disease of the colon with extraintestinal manifestations. UC is associated with increased risk of developing colorectal cancer and increased mortality. Pathogenesis of UC is postulated to be linked to a defect in the microbial population of the colonic mucosa. Patients with UC requiring surgery tend to have

There is considerable interest in the impact of (n-3) long-chain PUFA in mitigating the morbidity and mortality caused by chronic diseases. In 2002, the Institute of Medicine concluded that insufficient data were available to define Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), noting only that EPA and DHA could contribute up to 10% toward meeting the Adequate Intake for alpha-linolenic acid. Since then, substantial new evidence has emerged supporting the need to reassess this recommendation.

Background: Previous experimental studies have suggested many possible anti-cancer mechanisms for green tea, but epidemiologic evidence for the effect of green tea consumption on gastric cancer risk is conflicting.

Objective: To examine the association between green tea consumption and gastric cancer.

Four Candida species, C. albicans, C. glabrata, C. tropicalis and C. parapsilosis, together account for 95% of identifiable Candida infections. Although C. albicans is still the most common causative agent, its incidence is declining and the frequency of other species is increasing. Of these, C. parapsilosis is a particular problem in neonates, transplant recipients and patients receiving parenteral nutrition; C. tropicalis is
