Martek Announces Fourth Quarter and FY 2009 Financial Results
Date:12/16/2009

-up data from over 1,800 people who had participated in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study evaluating the development of Age-Related Macular Degeneration ("AMD"). At the end of the 12-year period, information was graded to determine each individual's AMD status and comparisons were made with the intake of DHA, EPA, and the combination of DHA and EPA. Results showed that individuals who consumed the highest amounts of DHA alone or in combination with EPA had the lowest level of progression to AMD. EPA alone did not show a benefit.
  • In the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (online October 2009), the ESPGHAN Committee on Nutrition updated their 1987 guidelines regarding the nutrient requirements of preterm infants. These new guidelines now include significant information regarding the importance of both DHA and ARA for the preterm infant. The Committee recommended that along with the other nutrients required for optimal development, DHA and ARA should be included in preterm infant formula to provide 11-27 mg/100 Kcal for DHA and 16-39 mg/100 Kcal for ARA. Any EPA present should not exceed 30 % of DHA supply. These recommended inclusion levels are equal to or greater than the inclusion levels generally found in preterm infant formulas currently marketed in the United States.
  • A study was published in Circulation (December 2009) in which, from 1984 to 1989, the serum fatty acids of 2,174 healthy men, age 42 to 60 years were measured. At the average follow-up period of 17.7 years, information regarding any previous diagnosis of atrial fibrillation ("AF"), a common cardiac arrhythmia, was compared to baseline fatty acid status. Results showed that DHA, and only DHA, and not EPA or ALA, was associated with a reduced risk for developing AF. Compared to the reference group, subjects in the highest DHA quartile had a 38% lower risk for developing AF.
