OBJECTIVE: Although randomized clinical trials have shown that immunonutrition results in the improvement of postoperative complications, the detailed mechanisms of its immunomodulation are still unclear. In the present study, we investigated if such immunonutrition could affect T-cell and natural killer (NK) cell functions, with particular focus on type 17 helper T (Th17) cells and NK cell-activating markers, in patients with esophageal and gastric cancer and in healthy volunteers. METHODS: Patients (n = 22) and healthy volunteers (n = 10) were orally administered an immunonutritional diet (Impact, 750 mL/d) in addition to a conventional diet for 5 d...

There is evidence to suggest that elevated levels of iodide in the diet are associated with autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD) in susceptible individuals, and that autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's disease) is less common in susceptible individuals who live in regions with dietary iodine deficiency.

Lymphocytic infiltration of the thyroid is rarely found in patients from severe endemic goiter regions, yet there is a reversal of this observation after dietary iodine supplementation...
