526.3 – Liver Proteomic Profile in Mice on a High-Fat Diet: Modulation with Anti-Tumor Intervention

Presenting AuthorUniversity of Michigan ntroduction: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming a primary cause of liver damage in Western society. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is an advanced stage of NAFLD and may lead to liver cancer. Our previous long-term murine studies have shown the beneficial role of Aquamin, a red marine algae-derived (calcium, magnesium, additional …

Vitamins D2 and D3 Have Overlapping But Different Effects on the Human Immune System Revealed Through Analysis of the Blood Transcriptome

Vitamin D is best known for its role in maintaining bone health and calcium homeostasis. However, it also exerts a broad range of extra-skeletal effects on cellular physiology and on the immune system. Vitamins D2 and D3 share a high degree of structural similarity. Functional equivalence in their vitamin D-dependent effects on human physiology is …

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with higher risks for SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 severity: a retrospective caseโ€“control study

Robust evidence of whether vitamin D deficiency is associated with COVID-19 infection and its severity is still lacking. The aim of the study was to evaluate the association between vitamin D levels and the risks of SARS-CoV-2 infection and severe disease in those infected. A retrospective study was carried out among members of Clalit Health …

Vitamin #D supplementation reduces the risk of #fall in the vitamin D deficient elderly: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis

Vitamin D supplementation has been widely recommended to prevent falls. However, considerable controversy exists regarding the association of such supplementation and fall risk. Previous meta-analyses yielded inconsistent results because of differences in the baseline of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) and dose of vitamin D and use of vitamin D or in combination with calcium in different …
