Autoimmune phenomena and clinically apparent autoimmune diseases, including autoimmune hepatitis, are increasingly been reported not only after natural infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but also after vaccination against it. We report the case of a 63-year old man without a history of autoimmunity or SARS-CoV-2 natural infection who experienced acute severe autoimmune-like hepatitis seven days after the first dose of the mRNA-1273 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Liver histology showed inflammatory portal infiltrate with interface hepatitis, lobular and centrilobular inflammation with centrilobular necrosis, in absence of fibrosis and steatosis. Read More

Nanoscale Solid-Phase Isobaric Labeling for Multiplexed Quantitative Phosphoproteomics.

J Proteome Res 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Department of Molecular & Cellular BioAnalysis, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kyoto University, Kyoto 606-8501, Japan.

We established a workflow for highly sensitive multiplexed quantitative phosphoproteomics using a nanoscale solid-phase tandem mass tag (TMT) labeling reactor. Phosphopeptides were first enriched by titanium oxide chromatography and then labeled with isobaric TMT reagents in a StageTip packed with hydrophobic polymer-based sorbents. We found that TMT-labeled singly phosphorylated peptides tend to flow through the titanium oxide column. Read More

The future is bright: Biofortification of common foods can improve vitamin D status.

Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr 2021 Jul 22:1-17. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Nutrition Innovation Centre for Food and Health (NICHE), School of Biomedical Sciences, Ulster University, Coleraine, UK.

Vitamin D deficiency is a global concern, linked to suboptimal musculoskeletal health and immune function, with status inadequacies owing to variations in UV dependent cutaneous synthesis and limited natural dietary sources. Endogenous biofortification, alongside traditional fortification and supplement usage is urgently needed to address this deficit. Evidence reviewed in the current article clearly demonstrates that feed modification and UV radiation, either independently or used in combination, effectively increases vitamin D content of primary produce or ingredients, albeit in the limited range of food vehicles tested to date (beef/pork/chicken/eggs/fish/bread/mushrooms).

Metabolomics of the tryptophan-kynurenine degradation pathway and risk of atrial fibrillation and heart failure: potential modification effect of Mediterranean diet.

Am J Clin Nutr 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health, University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain.

Background: The tryptophan-kynurenine pathway is linked to inflammation. We hypothesize that metabolites implicated in this pathway may be associated with the risk of heart failure (HF) or atrial fibrillation (AF) in a population at high risk of cardiovascular disease.

Objectives: We aimed to prospectively analyze the associations of kynurenine-related metabolites with the risk of HF and AF and to analyze a potential effect modification by the randomized interventions of the PREDIMED (Prevención con Dieta Mediterránea) trial with Mediterranean diet (MedDiet).

Front Nutr 2021 5;8:705172. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Agricultural, Food & Nutritional Science, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Dietary gangliosides are present in human milk and consumed in low amounts from organ meats. Clinical and animal studies indicate that dietary gangliosides attenuate signaling processes that are a hallmark of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Gangliosides decrease pro-inflammatory markers, improve intestinal permeability, and reduce symptoms characteristic in patients with IBD. Read More
