Funding for the work came from the National Institutes of Health, Connecticut Department of Health, the Hope Funds for Cancer Research and Mirna Therapeutics,of vitamin D, a relationship between low vitamin D status and heart disease, heart failure gene variant affecting vitamin D activation link. Now, a new study shows that patients with high blood pressure, . A gene variant that an enzyme critical normal vitamin D activation are affected twice as often as those without the variant to have congestive heart failure 'This study, the first indication of a genetic link between vitamin D action and heart disease,'says Robert U. Simpson, professor of pharmacology at the University of Michigan Medical School and an author of the study in the journal Pharmacogenomics. - 'This study showed that a critical enzyme absolutely required for the production of vitamin D, a genetic variant in the development of congestive heart failure is associated, 'Simpson says. 'If subsequent studies confirm this finding and demonstrate a mechanism, this means that in the future, we may be able to earlier screening for the most vulnerable and slow progress of the disease. Hormone. Test would take years. Study co-authors Russel A. Wilke of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Catherine A. McCarthy of the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, Marshfield, Wisconsin studied the genetic profiles of 617 subjects from the Marshfield Clinic Personalized Medicine Project, a large DNA biobank. You searched variants candidate genes candidate genes for their roles in vitamin D regulation and hypertension. A third of the subjects both high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, one-third had high blood pressure about a third were included as healthy controls.

The research was conducted as part of the cooperation between Yale and Mirna Therapeutics Inc., a biotechnology company in Austin, Texas. Joanne B. Weidhaas, MD / Ph.D. Yale and Andreas G. Mirna were co-senior authors of the paper. Other Yale authors on the paper are first author Phong Trang, Pedro P. Medina and Robert Homer, Mirna other authors Jason F. Wiggins, Lynnsie Ruffino, Kevin Kelnar, Michael Omotola and David Brown.

' affect out of prebiotics on intestinal bacteria ' Professor Glenn Gibson, if so, whether East Anglia, Paul Kroon and, Institute of Food Research and Dr. Nigel Botting, University of St Andrews. Consumption of fruits and vegetables appears to protective factor of heart disease because polyphenols it contains have. Berries and berry fluids produced, including wine, who a high concentration in polyphenols mentioned anthocyanins. Research indicates that anthocyanins is in pure form to depending on certain a function of certain cells of in the blood vessels , but what is not known, such as anthocyanins changes during food processed and when they. Into your body Researchers will to see at simply whether or not the see if the processing and gastrointestinal alter the process the disease fighting anthocyanin and if so, whether its characteristics could be differ of what is presently believed. - The effect of indigestible carbohydrates on biomarkers for intestinal health, Prof. John Mather, Newcastle University, Ian Johnson institutions of Food Research. Spend four weeks is the most common website for Krebs development of among people , and studies suggest a link between diet, obesity and colorectal cancer . Using biomarker for biomarkers for diet related hazard CRC, Professor Johnson said and Professor Mather such as react biomarkers dietetic aspects to determine how useful they be identifying as a biomarker the intestinal health. Her study known measuring of the methylation state that are involved that are involved in the early stages of the development of ,, and that can be altered by diet. - effect of pre-and probiotic on immune responses in Ageing ' Dr Parveen Yaqoob, University of Reading and Professor Richard Aspinall, Cranfield University, people over 65 suffering from frequent and severe infection than their younger counterparts, which immune responses declines - famous as a immunosenescence. The researchers are the effects of pre-and probiotics on immune function in young and old subjects, as a mix of pre-and probiotics, or placebo for four weeks given during which time a flu shot are look like. Your body is the immune response of the vaccine is is then measured. - increasing fullness by expectations of, sensorial quality and nutritional content ' Professor Martin Yeomans, Sussex University fullness after meals will be traditionally seen as the outcome of physiological processes, where ingested food dissolves signals fullness, to contribute which again this lead the chance of overeating previewed. But whereas nutrients create saturation signals do fail these signals solely be explained why certain longer more stuffing than others. A professor Yeoman exploring the theory that the unique expectations of a food or drink the road physiology feeling of satiety cues change interpretation and modify so we fully fully after eating or drinking.

The projects take place in the universities and research the UK are part a partnership of two publicly financed Research Councils and 15 companies. This does the research is promoted combating major questions of diet and health in our society, but also to an extent that food industry be be able quickly quickly, in order to improve the nation's health through diet.
