Human milk intake and growth in exclusively breast-fed infants.
Nuclear magnetic resonance transverse relaxation times of water protons in skeletal muscle.
Human intestinal maltase-glucoamylase: crystal structure of the N-terminal catalytic subunit and basis of inhibition and substrate specificity.
GLP-2 receptor localizes to enteric neurons and endocrine cells expressing vasoactive peptides and mediates increased blood flow.
It is concluded that the GLP-2-induced stimulation of blood flow is mediated by vasoactive neurotransmitters that are colocalized with GLp-2R in 2 functionally distinct cell types within the gastrointestinal tract.

Monitoring of lactating women found that successful lactation is compatible with gradual weight reduction and attainable with energy intakes less than current recommendations, and energy balance calculations indicated sufficient energy available for maintenance and activity needs.
Hospital Malnutrition and Inflammatory Response in Critically Ill Children and Adolescents Admitted to a Tertiary Intensive Care Unit
Malnourished patients maintain the capacity to release inflammatory markers such as CRP and IL-6, which can be considered favorable for combating infections On the other hand, this capacity might also have a significant impact on nutritional status during hospitalization.

The cloning and sequencing of human MGA gene is reported and its close evolutionary relationship to SI is demonstrated, suggesting that MGA and SI evolved by duplication of an ancestral gene, which itself had already undergone tandem gene duplication.

Compared with two other well-characterized epithelial models, MDCK cells and the hepatocyte, Caco-2 cells have an intermediate sorting phenotype, with apical proteins using both direct and indirect pathways, and basolateral proteins using only direct pathways, during biogenesis.
