An increasing recognition has emerged of the complexities of the global health agenda-specifically, the collision of infections and noncommunicable diseases and the dual burden of over- and undernutrition. Of particular practical concern are both 1) the need for a better understanding of the bidirectional relations between nutritional status and...

Vitamin K prophylaxis is recommended to prevent the hazard of haemorrhage caused by vitamin K deficiency in newborns. The present Dutch guideline recommends 1 mg of vitamin K1 orally at birth, followed by a daily dose of 25 μg of vitamin K1 from 1 to 13 weeks of age for breastfed infants. Since the introduction of this prophylaxis, the incidence...

In this review many examples are given of the complexities involved in using some biomarkers in relation to assessing the effects of dietary exposure, when there is frequently a need to determine changes following long-term low level exposure to dietary components. These range from understanding why the biomarker might be valuable and how best...

Earlier studies have shown that retinoid administration suppresses the generation of hepatic fibrosis and stimulates its regression in normal (i.e., vitamin A-sufficient) carbon tetrachloride-treated rats. This study focuses on the possible role of a marginal or deficient vitamin A status on carbon tetrachloride-induced fibrosis. This...

Ageing rats are more appropriate for studies on age-related osteopenia than growing or young adult rats, because of the better similarity with ageing man. Both have a negative bone balance, a low bone turnover, decreasing intestinal calcium absorption and decreasing levels of systemic hormones influencing the calcium and bone metabolism....

Tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) and its inhibitor, plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1), play an important role in regulating the fibrinolytic capacity of plasma. Both t-PA and PAI-1 are synthesized by the endothelium. We report that retinoic acid (vitamin A acid) and other retinoids rather specifically stimulate the production of...

A group of 134 school children aged 3-9 y, with signs of conjunctival xerosis, from the rural area of Sakorn Nakhon province of Northeast Thailand were selected for a controlled study on the short-term effect (2 wk) of a single, oral high dose of vitamin A on iron metabolism. After collection of the baseline data, children within villages were...

At the end of the winter circulating concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) in Asian and Mediterranen immigrants in northwestern European countries are usually very low. This may lead to vitamin D deficiency and eventually to rickets. Children are more prone to develop vitamin D deficiency. The vitamin D status of 8-year-old Turkish,...

The effects of cigarette smoke condensate (CSC) and all-trans retinol on the cell proliferative activity of vitamin A-deprived hamster tracheal epithelium have been studied in vitamin A-deficient, serum-free, hormone-supplemented medium in organ culture. In the absence of retinol, CSC induced a dose-dependent increase in labelig index (LI)...

The inter-relationship of food and physical performance, food is considered as a conglomerate of nutrients and man is depicted as a kind of organic pudding. This 'machine' concept of human performance in combination with the mysticism surrounding vitamins, has led to the faddish belief that additional vitamins are necessary to improve physical...
