SHORT COMMUNICATION Volume 2 Issue 1

From Green Biotechnology to Food Safety of Crop Production: All Cosmos Bio-Tech as a Model

Authors: Ying Tang, Minji Xu and Dr. Chee Kong Yap

Abstract: Owing to the increasing demand for the use of agricultural products, along with new and more restrictive policies regarding the application of fertilizers, the search for alternative ways to increase crop production is necessary. The ecosystem of the crops in a more sustainable is to be highly taken into consideration by this green biotechnology. One of the best alternatives is the employment of biofertilizers, which is an example of green biotechnology.

A Simple Electrochemical Method for Nitrate Determination in Leafy Vegetables

Authors: Jinming Huang, Samuel Pope and Mackenzie Willis

Abstract: A fast and easy electrochemical method for nitrate determination in leafy vegetables was developed. It is a much cheaper method compared to the HPLC method or chemiluminescence detection, the most sensitive method in determination of nitrate, which requires expensive instrumentation.

Factors Contributing to the High Prevalence of Vitamin B6 Deficiency in US: A Systematic Review

Authors: Ying Tang, Minji Xu and Shiu-Ming Kuo

Abstract: Based on the "Second National Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the US Population" from CDC in 2012, 10.5% of the population over 1-year-old were vitamin B6 deficient (plasma pyridoxal 5'-phosphate < 20 nM). We hypothesize that gender, age, food preparation, and disease conditions could affect the intake and/or the availability of vitamin B6.

Hormones of Bone Metabolism Changed with Vitamin D Agents Treatment in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

Authors: Dongliang Zhang, Xiaodan Sun and He Li

Abstract: To compare the circulation levels of hormones related with bone metabolism in a cohort of patients with chronic kidney disease in stage 3-5 who were treated by ergocalciferol (VitD2) or calcitriol (aVitD3). The blood levels of bone metabolism hormones change significantly after vitamin D agents' therapy. Ergocalciferol supplementation treatment can increase blood levels of 25(OH) D and BMP-7 much more than calcitriol. Improving 25(OH) D insufficiency can suppress the endocrine of FGF-23.

Impact of Social and Behavior Change Communication in Nutrition Specific Interventions on Selected Indicators of Nutritional Status

Authors: Eileen Kennedy, Jennifer Stickland, Meghan Kershaw and Sibhatu Biadgilign

Abstract: The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition has focused on elimination of malnutrition in all its forms. To achieve this goal, countries are focusing on nutrition specific and sensitive programs. This paper reviews studies in four thematic areas - malnutrition, micronutrient supplementation.

Review Article Volume 2 Issue 1

Impact of Social and Behavior Change Communication in Nutrition Sensitive Interventions on Selected Indicators of Nutritional Status

Authors: Eileen Kennedy, Jennifer Stickland, Meghan Kershaw and Sibhatu Biadgilign

Abstract: The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition has focused on elimination of malnutrition in all its forms. To achieve this goal, countries are focusing on nutrition specific and sensitive programs. This paper reviews studies in three thematic areas - agriculture, social safety net and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) - to assess the effects of nutrition sensitive strategies combined with a social and behavioral change communication component on diet and nutritional status.
