The effect of dietary supplements, acids and animal protein on gastrointestinal disorders
Date:5/3/2010

NEW ORLEANS, LA (May 3, 2010) High protein intake may be associated with increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease, while fatty acids found in olive, peanut and grapeseed oils may protect against the development of ulcerative colitis, according to new data being presented at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2010. DDW is the largest international gathering of physicians and researchers in the field of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery.

"We know more now than we ever have about the effect of specific nutrients on GI health, and these studies bring us closer to treating, and perhaps even preventing some of these disorders," according to Kelly A. Tappenden, PhD, RD, University of Illinois. "Although there is more research to be done on these important issues, armed with these new data on the links between diet and GI disorders, we can continue to work toward better therapies and improved health outcomes."

Retinol Supplements Antiviral Action of Pegylated Interferon and Ribavirin Combination Therapy in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C: Prospective Pilot Study (Abstract #T2004)

Vitamin A supplements increase the anti-viral effect of gold-standard treatment drugs for hepatitis C (HCV), according to a new study from Shimane University School of Medicine in Izumo, Japan. This is the first study in which vitamin A (retinol) was given during all 48 weeks with PegINFα2b and rivabirin in order to evaluate the early viral response and outcome (rate of sustained virological response, etc.) of patients with chronic HCV.

Previously, the number of patients with HCV who achieved a sustained virologic response after the standard therapy of peg-interferon and ribavirin was low, so investigators at Shimane University School of Medicine sought a way to enhance the anti-viral effect of interferon and ribavirin on HCV.

They found that retinol improved the antiviral effect of PegIFNα-2b/ribavi
