Iron is implicated in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The aim of this study was to see if long-term, experimental iron administration with aging modifies retinal and choroidal structures and expressions of iron handling proteins, to understand some aspects of iron homeostasis. Male Wistar rats were fed with ferrous sulphate heptahydrate (500mg/kg body weight/week, oral; elemental iron availability: 20%) from 2 months of age onward until they were 19.5 month-old. At 8, 14 and 20 months of age, they were sacrificed and serum and retinal iron levels were detected by HPLC...

Micronutrient deficiencies result in irreversible physical and cognitive consequences. Fortification of flour is widely applied to address micronutrient deficiencies, but vitamin losses can occur during the storage of fortified products. This work aimed at assessing the combined influence of different factors on vitamin A retention and the oxidative status of wheat flours: storage duration (up to 6months), temperature during storage, relative humidity within storage facilities, type of packaging (oxygen-permeable or not), and premix composition (with or without ferrous sulphate)...

Metronidazole is administered in an inactive form then activated to its cytotoxic form within the hydrogenosome of trichomonads. Two hydrogenosomal proteins, pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductase (PFOR) and ferredoxin, play a critical role in the reductive activation of metronidazole. The expression of these proteins and other hydrogenosomal proteins are likewise positively regulated by iron. In the present study, the effect of iron on minimal lethal concentration (MLC) of metronidazole on in vitro cultured Trichomonas vaginalis(T...

The oxidation potential of iron fortified goat and cow milks and casein phosphopeptides obtained from each species of milk was determined using malondialdehyde as an oxidation product marker. There was a reduction in oxidation when iron was 'bound' to milk or peptides compared to free ferrous sulphate in solution. However, goat milk produced significantly lower amounts of malondialdehyde of 0.46±0.04μgMDA/ml after 3days at 30°C compared to the blank of 1.25±0.16μgMDA/ml. The goat peptides produced non-significantly different levels of malondialdehyde compared to the blank containing no ferrous sulphate...

Numerous iron-containing preparations are available on the market; these vary in dosage, salt, chemical state of iron (ferric or ferrous) and in the iron delivery process (immediate or prolonged-release). Tardyferon® is a prolonged-release tablet containing 80 mg ferrous sulphate. The formulation has recently been modified; changes to the excipients which constitute the inert formulation matrix have allowed a decrease in tablet size for easier swallowing. The aim of this multicenter open-label study was to characterize the serum pharmacokinetics of iron in non-pregnant women aged 23-45 years with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) following single oral administration of 160 mg Tardyferon® under fasting conditions...

Recent studies have shown that the pyrolysis of biomass combined with clay can result in both lower cost and increase in plant yields. One of the major sources of nutrients for pasture growth, as well as fuel and building materials in Tibet is yak dung. This paper reports on the initial field testing in a pasture setting in Tibet using yak dung, biochar, and attapulgite clay/yak dung biochars produced at ratios of 10/90 and 50/50 clay to dung. We found that the treatment with attapulgite clay/yak dung (50/50) biochar resulted in the highest pasture yields and grass nutrition quality...

Water contributes significantly to health and a daily intake of 1.5 to 2 liters of water should be guaranteed, because a good hydration is essential to maintain the body water equilibrium, although needs may vary among people. However, worldwide population is far from the Recommended Allowance for water intake. Among the waters for human uses, there are 'waters (treated or not), intended for drinking, used for the food and beverages preparation or for other domestic purposes' and natural mineral waters, that are 'originated from an aquifer or underground reservoir, spring from one or more natural or bore sources and have specific hygienic features and, eventually, healthy properties'...
