This observation from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-sponsored Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA
) study carries a hopeful message that has important implications.
In 1985 and 1986, black and white adults from the ages of 18 to 30 years in Birmingham, Ala.; Chicago; Minneapolis, Minn.; and Oakland, Calif., were recruited into the CARDIA
longitudinal study and were followed for 25 years.
The agreement is expected to generate strong sales for Cardia
and the launch follows on from Cardia
's ASX announcement made on the 21st of August 2012.
The study had several limitations, including the use of self-report for asthma diagnoses and the possibility that using only CARDIA
patients who had serum adiponectin measured may have introduced selection bias.
In total, 117 patients developed high-grade dysplasia or cancer of the esophagus or gastric cardia
, including 70 adenocarcinomas or unspecified cancers of the esophagus, 10 adenocarcinomas of the gastric cardia
, and 37 cases of esophageal high-grade dysplasia, the authors wrote.
Biohybrid plastics are a blend of renewable materials and traditional polyolefins.
The strong, dose-dependent inverse relationship found between dietary intake of cereal fiber and the risk for gastric cardia
adenocarcinoma was not seen for fiber from fruits, vegetables, and legumes (Gastroenterology 120:387-91, 2001).

unique Biohybrid(TM) technology.
For this study, the researchers analysed data such as blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, BMI, alcohol intake, tobacco use, diet and exercise from more than 3,000 of the CARDIA
participants to define a low cardiovascular disease risk profile and healthy lifestyle factors.
