Dietary Sodium Nitrate Activates Antioxidant and Mitochondrial Dynamics Genes after Moderate Intensity Acute Exercise in Metabolic Syndrome Patients.

J Clin Med 2021 Jun 14;10(12). Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Research Group on Community Nutrition and Oxidative Stress, Health Research Institute of the Balearic Islands (IdISBa), 07120 Palma, Spain.

Exercise can induce a pro-inflammatory response in aged subjects with metabolic disorders and nitrate supplementation has shown anti-inflammatory effects. We evaluated the influence of dietary nitrate on the response of the antioxidant and mitochondrial dynamics genes to acute exercise in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), as well as the antioxidant and the inflammatory response of PBMCs against immune stimulation. Metabolic syndrome patients participated in a crossover study in which they consumed a beverage containing 16 mM sodium nitrate or a placebo with the same composition without nitrate before performing a submaximal test at 60%-70% of their maximal heart rate for 30 min.

The cancer patient's perspective of COVID-19-induced distress-A cross-sectional study and a longitudinal comparison of HRQOL assessed before and during the pandemic.

Cancer Med 2021 06 10;10(12):3928-3937. Epub 2021 May 10.

Department of Internal Medicine V, Hematology and Oncology, Comprehensive Cancer Center Innsbruck (CCCI), Medical University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

Background: To permit timely mitigation of adverse effects on overall clinical outcome, it is essential to understand how the pandemic influences distress and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in cancer patients during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Methods: In this cross-sectional study, adult cancer patients, without COVID-19 symptoms, completed a 13-item questionnaire about the pandemic's impacts on distress and everyday-life; associations with age, sex, or impaired HRQOL were then assessed by binary logistic regressions. In a subsample of patients with HRQOL assessment available from both before and during the pandemic, we evaluated the pandemic's impact on longitudinal changes in HRQOL reported within 6 months before versus during the COVID-19 lockdown using McNemar's test, and thresholds for clinical importance.

Evaluation of occlusal status of Japanese adults based on functional tooth units.

Int Dent J 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Oral Health Promotion, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Objectives: Although extensive national oral health data on dental caries and periodontal diseases in Japan are available, few studies have assessed the occlusal status of the Japanese population, and none are based on national survey data. The presence and prosthodontic conditions of the molar region are important for masticatory function, and the functional tooth unit (FTU) approach can be used to evaluate the occlusal status. Thus, using the national oral health survey data, this study investigated the occlusal status of the Japanese population using FTU. Read More
