Stress fractures may be reduced by supplementsA research has suggested that women who take vitamin D and calcium supplements, even for a short time, appear to reduce to risk of stress fractures.

The finding was based on evaluation of more than 5,000 female Navy recruits participating in eight weeks of basic training. One group was administered with 2,000 milligrams of calcium and 800 IU of vitamin D a day, while the other group received placebos.

The researchers presented their findings at an Orthopaedic Research Society conference.

Progesterone optimization can help in treating brain injuriesResearchers have been testing optimization of Progesterone to measure the effectiveness of the hormone in treating patients afflicted with traumatic brain injuries.

This finding was highlighted by two abstracts demonstrating Emory research on the hormone that was presented at the 2009 Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting in Chicago; the trial was developed by Donald Stein, PhD, Asa G. Candler Professor of Emergency Medicine at Emory School of Medicine.

It was noted by authors of the study that low amounts of Vitamin D could be useful in improving progesterone’s ability to guard neurons from excito-toxicity, which is a principal cause of brain injury and death of cells.

More asthma symptoms linked with low levels of Vitamin DLow vitamin D levels share a relationship with lower lung function and greater medication use in children affected with asthma, as per researchers at National Jewish Health in a paper published online in the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology.

It was reported by Daniel Searing, MD, and his colleagues that vitamin D has the ability to improve the activity of corticosteroids, which are considered to be the most effective of all asthma control medications.

Dr. Leung said that the work suggested that vitamin D improves the anti-inflammatory function of corticosteroids.

Low levels of Vitamin D linked with asthma symptoms and medicationsAccording to researchers at National Jewish Health, low vitamin D levels are linked with reduced lung function and use of medications in children suffering with asthma.

The finding was disclosed in a paper published online this week in the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology.

Daniel Searing, MD, and his colleagues reported that vitamin D has the ability to improve the activity of the most effective controller medication for asthma, corticosteroids.

Lung function decline possible of being halted with Vitamin DWhen it comes to slowing down the progressive decline in the ability to breathe in asthmatic people due to human airway smooth muscle (HASM) proliferation, Vitamin D emerges as an effective option.

This finding was disclosed by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania. The involved researchers found that a form of vitamin D synthesized within the body, calcitriol, has the ability of minimizing growth-factor-induced HASM proliferation in cells isolated from both persons with asthma and from persons without the disease.

The researchers are of the view that irreversible decline in breathing leading to vulnerable health in asthmatics can be prevented or forestalled by slowing airway remodeling.

Lung function decline possible of being halted by Vitamin DVitamin D can prove its efficacy when it comes to slowing down the progressive decline in the ability to breathe occurring in asthmatic patients due to human airway smooth muscle (HASM) proliferation, according to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania.

It was found by the involved group that calcitriol, a form of vitamin D synthesized within the body, has the ability to reduce growth-factor-induced HASM proliferation in cells in asthmatic as well as non-asthmatic people.

The researchers are now planning for a randomized control trial of calcitriol in patients with severe asthma with expectations of trial data in a year’s time as part of the University of Pennsylvania‘s Airway Biology Initiative.

Brain injury treatable with optimization of ProgesteroneProgesterone is under testing stage by researchers aiming to optimize the effectiveness of this hormone to treat patients suffering from traumatic brain injury.

Two abstracts highlighting Emory research on the hormone were presented at the 2009 Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting in Chicago.

This trial was developed by Donald Stein, PhD, Asa G. Candler Professor of Emergency Medicine at Emory School of Medicine.

The study authors noted that a low amount of Vitamin D can boost ability of progesterone to protect neurons from excito-toxicity, which is a principal cause of brain injury and cell death.

progesterone-optimized-for-treating-brain-injuryResearchers are moving ahead by testing progesterone in the quest to optimizing the effectiveness of the hormone for treating traumatic brain injury.

In this direction, two abstracts summarizing Emory research on the hormone were presented at the 2009 Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting in Chicago.

A multisite phase III clinical trial called ProTECT III will be initiated for examining the effectiveness of the hormone in the coming few months. The trial was developed by Donald Stein, PhD, Asa G. Candler Professor of Emergency Medicine at Emory School of Medicine.

It was noted by the authors that a low amount of Vitamin D has the ability to boost progesterone’s ability to guard neurons from excito-toxicity, which is a principal cause of brain injury and cell death.

Lung function halted by Vitamin D in COPD and Asthma

According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Vitamin D can slow down the progressive decline in the ability to breathe occurring in asthmatic patients as a result of human airway smooth muscle (HASM) proliferation.

Gautam Damera, Ph.D., presented the research at the American Thoracic Society’s 105th International Conference in San Diego on May 20, and said that Calcitriol is effective when it comes to offering anti-inflammatory effects.

It was found by the group that a form of vitamin D synthesized within the body, calcitriol, has the ability to reduce growth-factor-induced HASM proliferation in cells isolated from both persons with asthma and from persons without the complication.

Lung function decline halted in COPD and Asthma by Vitamin DAccording to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Vitamin D can slow down the progressive decline in the ability to breathe that can happen to some asthmatic people as a result of human airway smooth muscle (HASM) proliferation.

It was found that calcitriol, which is a form of vitamin D synthesized within the body, minimizes growth-factor-induced HASM proliferation in cells that are isolated from people affected by asthma and even those not affected by the ailment.

Gautam Damera, Ph.D., who will present the research at the American Thoracic Society’s 105th International Conference in San Diego, remarked that calcitriol has the potential of delivering dramatic results because f its anti-inflammatory characteristics.
