G Renda et al, 2011. Genetic determinants of blood pressure responses to caffeine drinking, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, published online ahead of print.

Background: The widely observed between-subject variability in cardiovascular responses to coffee may have a genetic basis. Objective: We evaluated acute blood pressure (BP) responses to caffeine and explored whether they are influenced by candidate gene variants affecting caffeine metabolism (for cytochrome P450 1A2), adenosine metabolism (for adenosine receptor and AMP deaminase), or catecholamine receptors. Methods: […]

N Pandeya et al, 2011. Prevalence and determinants of frequent gastroesophageal reflux symptoms in the Australian community. Diseases of the Esophagus, published online ahead of print.

Frequent gastroesophageal reflux (GER) causes chronic inflammation and damages esophageal mucosa, which can lead to Barrett’s esophagus. It has also been consistently found to be a strong risk factor for esophageal adenocarcinoma. The prevalence of GER appears to vary; however, population-based Australian studies investigating the symptoms are limited. This study aimed to estimate the population […]

M B D’hooghe et al, 2011. Alcohol, coffee, fish, smoking and disease progression in multiple sclerosis. European Journal of Neurology, published online ahead of print.

Background: Certain lifestyle factors might influence disease activity in multiple sclerosis (MS). Objectives: To investigate the consumption of alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drinks, fish and cigarette smoking in relation to disability progression in relapsing onset and progressive onset MS. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional survey amongst individuals with MS, registered by the Flemish MS society in […]
