  1. doi request reprint Vitamin D-responsive SGPP2 variants associated with lung cell expression and lung function
    Brian J Reardon
    Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, 209 Savage Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
    BMC Med Genet 14:122. 2013
    ..This study explores mechanisms for an effect of vitamin D in lung through an in vivo gene expression study, an expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) analysis in lung tissue, and a population-based cohort study of sequence variants...
  2. pmc A multivariate analysis of serum nutrient levels and lung function
    Tricia M McKeever
    Division of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK
    Respir Res 9:67. 2008
    ..The aim of this study was to conduct a comprehensive examination of the independent associations of a wide range of serum markers of nutritional status with lung function, measured as the one-second forced expiratory volume (FEV1)...
  3. pmc Folate network genetic variation, plasma homocysteine, and global genomic methylation content: a genetic association study
    Susan M Wernimont
    Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
    BMC Med Genet 12:150. 2011
    ..Sequence variants in genes functioning in folate-mediated one-carbon metabolism are hypothesized to lead to changes in levels of homocysteine and DNA methylation, which, in turn, are associated with risk of cardiovascular disease...
  4. pmc Randomised vitamin E supplementation and risk of chronic lung disease in the Women's Health Study
    Anne H Agler
    Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
    Thorax 66:320-5. 2011
    ..Observational studies consistently report higher antioxidant status associated with lower COPD risk, but few randomised studies have been reported...
  5. pmc Disparate oxidant gene expression of airway epithelium compared to alveolar macrophages in smokers
    Brendan J Carolan
    Department of Genetic Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, New York, USA
    Respir Res 10:111. 2009
    ..In this context, we asked: what is the transcriptome of oxidant-related genes in small airway epithelium and alveolar macrophages, and does their response differ substantially to inhaled cigarette smoke?..
  6. ncbi request reprint Lipids and pulmonary function in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
    Dominic J Cirillo
    Division of Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
    Am J Epidemiol 155:842-8. 2002
    ..Whether these associations are causal remains to be determined...

  1. Nutritional influences on lung function
    PATRICIA CASSANO; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..An integrated approach to the study of nutritional factors and their potential influences on lung outcomes is proposed. ..
  2. Supplemental Se and Vitamin E and Pulmonary Function
    PATRICIA CASSANO; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..This study could have enormous public health significance, because supplementation with antioxidant nutrients would be an inexpensive and practicable means to reduce morbidity and mortality from pulmonary disease. ..
