Nutrigenomics (Oxidative Stress and Disease)

Buy
Nutrition research commenced more than 200 years ago in the dawn of the chemical revolution. The “golden age of nutrition” began in the early 1910s and continued into the 1940s when nutritional sciences focused primarily on diseases associated with single nutrient deficiencies. This led to the formulation of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of each nutrient. After almost all of the essential nutrients had been discovered, nutrition research focused on the problem of multifactorial chronic diseases, many of which are caused not by nutritional deficiency but by overnutrition. In the following years, the revolutionary progress in recombinant DNA technology and genomics culminated in 2001 with completion of the Human Genome Project and sequencing of the entire human genome. As a result of all these developments, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics are increasingly being used in nutritional research.

Nutritional genomics, also called nutrigenomics, is an emerging field in the life sciences and is considered as one of the next frontiers in the postgenomic era. Its fundamental concept is that a healthy phenotype can develop into a chronic disease phenotype via alterations in gene expression or epigenetic phenomena and that the diet contains substances having the potential to modify these processes. Nutrigenomics focuses on the relationship between dietary nutrients and gene expression using state-of-the-art technology.

The development of DNA microarrays and protein chips make large-scale genomic and proteomic investigations possible by allowing simultaneously high throughput monitoring of the expression of thousands of genes in response to diet. The emerging knowledge will aid in the understanding of how nutrients modify cancer risk, chronic diseases, and aging. It is generally recognized that most human diseases are largely avoidable by lifestyle changes. This places nutrigenomics at the forefront of preventive medicine.

Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Estimating Equations (Oxford Statistical Science, Vol. 29)
Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Estimating Equations (Oxford Statistical Science, Vol. 29)
This book has grown from the authors' investigations into the problem of finding consistent and efficient solutions to estimating equations which admit multiple solutions. While there have been studies of multiple roots in likelihood estimation, most notably by Barnett (1966), we felt that there was a need to incorporate more...
