The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces the release of the ninth issue of the Annual Bibliography of Significant Advances in Dietary Supplement Research. The papers selected for the 2007 Bibliography include research supported by government, industry, and academic institutions, as well as public-private partnerships. The research covers a wide array of laboratory, human studies, and observational studies in the following areas, as well as others:
For each of the 25 papers selected, the Bibliography provides the full reference citation, a description of the study's methods and findings, and discussion of possible implications for future research.
For this issue of the Annual Bibliography, over 400 original scientific papers from 83 journals were initially identified for consideration. Of these, 223 papers relevant to dietary supplements were sent to 54 external scientific experts in the fields of nutrition, public health, medicine and pharmacognosy for evaluation. In scoring the papers, the expert reviewers considered each study's design and statistical evaluation, public health significance, and potential to advance the field. The Bibliography contains the 25 top-scoring papers.
