Entamoeba moshkovskii Infections in Children in Bangladesh
TLDR
The high prevalence of E. moshkovskii with E. histolytica and E. dispar in preschool children in Bangladesh suggests that humans may be a true host for this ameba. Expand
Very low adequacy of micronutrient intakes by young children and women in rural Bangladesh is primarily explained by low food intake and limited diversity.
TLDR
The degree of micronutrient inadequacy among young children and women in rural Bangladesh is alarming and is primarily explained by diets low in energy and little diversity of foods. Expand
The current high prevalence of dietary zinc inadequacy among children and women in rural Bangladesh could be substantially ameliorated by zinc biofortification of rice.
TLDR
Simulated increases in rice zinc content to levels currently achievable through selective breeding decreased the estimated prevalence of inadequacy to 9% in children and 20-85% in women, depending on the assumptions used to estimate absorption. Expand
Innate and acquired resistance to amebiasis in bangladeshi children.
TLDR
The serum anti-trophozoite IgG response clustered in families, which is consistent with genetic inheritance, and both innate and acquired immune responses limit infection in children from Dhaka. Expand
Low-Level Environmental Cadmium Exposure Is Associated with DNA Hypomethylation in Argentinean Women
TLDR
Environmental cadmium exposure was associated with DNA hypomethylation in peripheral blood, and DNMT1 genotypes modified this association, and the role of epigenetic modifications in Cadmium-associated diseases needs clarification. Expand
Efficient Arsenic Metabolism — The AS3MT Haplotype Is Associated with DNA Methylation and Expression of Multiple Genes Around AS3MT
TLDR
The AS3MT haplotype status strongly predicted DNA methylation and gene expression of AS3 MT as well as several genes in 10q24, raising the possibility that several genes within this region are important for arsenic metabolism. Expand
Prevalence of anemia and micronutrient deficiencies in early pregnancy in rural Bangladesh, the MINIMat trial
TLDR
The high prevalences of zinc and vitamin B‐12 deficiencies in early pregnancy are a concern, as it could lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes and increased health risks for both mother and child. Expand
Intakes and breast-milk concentrations of essential fatty acids are low among Bangladeshi women with 24-48-month-old children.
TLDR
Bangladeshi women in general, and especially those who practise prolonged breast-feeding, may benefit from increased consumption of food sources of PUFA. Expand
Maternal multiple micronutrient supplementation has limited impact on micronutrient status of Bangladeshi infants compared with standard iron and folic acid supplementation.
TLDR
It is concluded that maternal multiple micronutrient supplementation may have a beneficial effect on vitamin B-12 status in infancy. Expand
Sex-specific effects of early life cadmium exposure on DNA methylation and implications for birth weight
TLDR
Cadmium exposure in early life appears to alter DNA methylation differently in girls and boys, consistent with previous findings of sex-specific cadmium toxicity. Expand
