Lucky Ducks with No Leaky Guts!

Effect of Zinc Supplementation on Growth Performance, Intestinal Development, and Intestinal Barrier-Related Gene Expression in Pekin Ducks.

The current study was conducted to investigate the effect of zinc supplementation on the growth performance, intestinal morphology, and the transcription of the barrier function related genes in Pekin ducks. Seven-hundred and sixty-eight 1-day-old Pekin ducks were randomly assigned into six dietary treatments. Each treatment had eight replicates with 16 ...

Symptom: Lhermitte's Sign

"A symptom is any subjective evidence of disease, while a sign is any objective evidence of disease.

(wow!) 2013 study: Evaluation of 25(OH)VitD3 wrt Serum Mg

well that would be one of the highest serum mag levels i've ever seen in a healthy controls group.

this is of course assuming, given that the authors do not seem to have specified (!?!), that the units are mg/dl. (if any other typical units, the results are even higher levels).

Nutrigenomics: The Genome–Food Interface

"Efforts to unveil the etiology of human disease often recapitulate the nature versus nurture debate. But today’s biologists concede that neither nature nor nurture alone can explain the molecular processes that ultimately govern human health. The presence of a particular gene or mutation in most cases merely connotes a predisposition to a particular disease process. Whether that genetic potential will eventually manifest as a ...

Increasing serum levels of vitamin A, D and E are associated with alterations of different inflammation markers in patients with multiple sclerosis ... mipwms.xml

"Our main findings are that
(i) rising 25(OH)D (vitamin D) levels are positively associated with IL-1Ra and sFRP3, but only before IFN-β treatment,

2014 review: Evidence for Beneficial Role of Vitamin A in MS

The Evidence for a Beneficial Role of Vitamin A in Multiple Sclerosis ... 014-0148-4
Vitamin A is an essential nutrient with important roles in immunological responses and in brain development. Its main metabolite is retinoic acid (RA), which is responsible for the neuroimmunological functions related to vitamin A. In the brain, RA is known to have interactions with other nuclear receptor-mediated signalling pathways. RA is involved in plasticity, ...
