Slit2 Exerts Anti‐Inflammatory Actions in Human Placenta and is Decreased with Maternal Obesity
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal of Reproductive Immunology
ConclusionThe anti‐inflammatory effects of Slit2 in human placenta is a novel finding, and suggests that inflammatory mediators, which are increased with obesity, downregulates Slit2 to enhance placental inflammation. Given the central role of pro‐inflammatory cytokines in placental nutrient transport, our findings suggest Slit2 may play a role in fetal growth and development.

Estimated Lean Mass and Fat Mass Differentially Affect Femoral Bone Density and Strength Index but Are Not FRAX Independent Risk Factors for Fracture
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Bone and Mineral Research
In conclusion, skeletal adaptation to increasing lean mass was positively associated with BMD but had no effect on femoral SI, whereas increasing fat mass had no effect on BMD but adversely affected femoral SI. Greater fat mass was not independently associated with a greater risk of fractures over 5‐year follow‐up. FRAX robustly predicts fractures and was not affected by variations in body composition. © 2014 American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. (Source: Journal of Bone and Mineral Research)
