A 12-year-old boy with Down syndrome referred to the authors' department with dysphagia and growth retardation. Dysphagia was especially with solid foods and had a 12-month history. When he was 7, he had started to drink Coke and from that time he had a Coke drinking habit. Every day he was drinking more than 2 L Coke and was eating meals in small amounts. Investigations of the patient revealed esophageal stricture related to acidic drink habit and gastro-oesephageal reflux. The patient was treated with recurrent bouginage, antireflux medication, and nutrional support...

Early postoperative enteral nutrition (EN) after esophagectomy in esophageal cancer patient has been reported to be correlated with a better rehabilitation than parenteral nutrition (PN). However, a robust conclusion has not been achieved. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to compare the postoperative EN and PN in patients with esophageal cancer undergoing esophagectomy. Three electronic databases were searched for eligible studies to be included in the meta-analysis. The summary relative risk/weighted mean difference (RR/WMD) estimates and corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated using fixed- and random-effects models...

The deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussel Bathymodiolus azoricus and the continental European coast Mytilus galloprovincialis are two bivalves species living in highly distinct marine habitats. Mussels are filter-feeding animals that may accumulate rapidly bacteria from the environment. Contact with microorganism is thus inevitable during feeding processes where gill tissues assume a strategic importance at the interface between the external milieu and the internal body cavities promoting interactions with potential pathogens during normal filtration and a constant challenge to their immune system...

BACKGROUND: Mosquito fitness is determined largely by body size and nutritional reserves. Plasmodium infections in the mosquito and resultant transmission of malaria parasites might be compromised by the vector's nutritional status. We studied the effects of nutritional stress and malaria parasite infections on transmission fitness of Anopheles mosquitoes. METHODS: Larvae of Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto and An. stephensi were reared at constant density but with nutritionally low and high diets...

Low nutritional quality and high levels of condensed tannins adversely affect voluntary intake of blackbrush (Coleogyne ramosissima Torr.) by goats. We studied: (1) how consumption of blackbrush or alfalfa pellets by young goats affected their consumption of those foods later in life, and (2) whether previous ingestion of blackbrush or alfalfa pellets affected the excretion of condensed tannins and total phenols from blackbrush in urine and feces, production of proline-rich proteins in saliva, excretion of nitrogen in feces, and mass of the liver, kidneys, parotid glands, and reticuloramen in goats...

The time course of the EURRECA from 2008 to 2012, overlapped considerably with the timeframe of the process undertaken by the North American Institute of Medicine (IOM) to revise dietary reference intakes for vitamin D and calcium (published November 2010). Therefore the aims of the vitamin D-related activities in EURRECA were formulated to address knowledge requirements that would complement the activities undertaken by the IOM and provide additional resources for risk assessors and risk management agencies charged with the task of setting dietary reference values for vitamin D...

Phenylketonuria (PKU) leads to severe neurological disorders in childhood, shunned by the diet. The long-term prognosis after diet diversification at adolescence is uncertain. We report a case of cortical blindness in a young patient regressive 1 month after the diet was resumed.Mr M., 25 years old, had PKU detected at birth. He maintained good serum levels of Phenylalanine (Phe) (120-300 μmol/L) during childhood and got a normal intellectual development. During adolescence he diversified his diet but maintained low meat and fish intake; Phe was ~1,200 μmol/L with no symptoms...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a multisystem disease characterized by chronic pulmonary infection, bronchiectasis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and elevated sweat chloride level. It is commonly considered as a pediatric disease. But it is now being diagnosed in increasing number of adults due to increased survival from availability of potent antibiotics, nutritional facility and diagnosis of mild cases which were unrecognized previously. CF is rarely reported from India and its adult presentation is rarer. Our case, a Hindu female from West Bengal, India was diagnosed to have CF at the age of 29 years...

The problem to evaluate treatment outcome in adult PKU (phenylketonuric) patients lies in the heterogeneity of the adult PKU population. This heterogeneity is not only based on the different treatment history of every individual patient but also on the different severity of the underlying defect of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. Recent, partly double blind studies in adult PKU patients further support recommendation for lifelong treatment. However, it has become evident that dietary treatment is suboptimal and continuation to adulthood often not accepted...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To discuss the mechanisms of muscle loss during cachexia. RECENT FINDINGS: Cachexia can be defined as a wasting of lean body mass that cannot be reversed nutrionally, indicating a dysregulation in the pathways maintaining body composition. In skeletal muscle, during cachexia, there is an upregulation of protein degradation. A search for transcriptional markers of muscle atrophy led to the discovery of the E3 ubiquitin ligases MuRF1 and MAFbx (also called Atrogin-1)...

Protein catabolism should be reduced and protein synthesis promoted with parenteral nutrion (PN). Amino acid (AA) solutions should always be infused with PN. Standard AA solutions are generally used, whereas specially adapted AA solutions may be required in certain conditions such as severe disorders of AA utilisation or in inborn errors of AA metabolism. An AA intake of 0.8 g/kg/day is generally recommended for adult patients with a normal metabolism, which may be increased to 1.2-1.5 g/kg/day, or to 2.0 or 2...
