Genetic testing for Marfan syndrome

. Undiagnosed patients can have serious complications and are at risk of sudden death, usually due to aortic dissection. Estimated prevalence of MFS is from 6 to 20 per 100,000 individuals ( 5 ). Sun et al. ( 6 ) reported a prevalence of 17.2 per 100,000 in China in 1990. The Revised Ghent Nosology (2010) is used to diagnose MFS. It divides diagnostic manifestations into “major” and “minor” criteria. The Ghent criteria were modified when mutations in FBN1 (OMIM gene 134797) were found to cause MFS. Patients without a family history of the disease, but with a “major

Nutraceutical prospective: The synergetic mechanism of action of inositols and resveratrol on metabolic syndrome

plants. The richest source of natural resveratrol is a plant known from traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine called Polygonum cuspidatum, ( 25 ). Lower quantities of resveratrol can be found in peanuts, grapes, red wine and mulberries ( 26 ). Resveratrol has emerged in recent years as a molecule conferring strong protection against metabolic, cardiovascular and other age-related complications, such as neurodegenerative disorders. Given its potential as a novel molecule for the development of drugs that treat metabolic disorders, understanding the molecular

The genus Portulaca as a suitable model to study the mechanisms of plant tolerance to drought and salinity

) is a nutritious herb with a high content of ‘healthy’ antioxidant compounds and essential nutrients, such as α-linolenic acid, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, ascorbic acid, glutathione, α-tocopherol and β-carotene ( 38 ). There are few vegetable sources rich in ω-3 fatty acids; this, together with the species’ relatively high salt tolerance, explains the growing interest to promote purslane as a new vegetable crop ( 35 ). In Chinese folklore, P. oleracea is known as ‘vegetable for a long life’ with a long history of use as both, an edible plant and traditional
