Annual Bibliography of Significant Advances in Dietary Supplement Research 2007
The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS)
at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces the
release of the ninth issue of the Annual Bibliography of
Significant Advances in Dietary Supplement Research. The
papers selected for the 2007 Bibliography include research
supported by government, industry, and academic institutions,
as well as public-private partnerships. The research
covers a wide array of laboratory, human studies, and observational
studies in the following areas, as well as others:
and Cardiovascular Health
and Diabetes in At-Risk Children
and Cancer Risk
For each of the 25 papers selected, the Bibliography provides
the full reference citation, a description of the study’s
methods and findings, and discussion of possible implications
for future research
For this issue of the Annual Bibliography,
over 400 original scientific papers from 83 journals were
initially identified for consideration. Of these,
223 papers relevant to dietary supplements were sent to
54 external scientific experts in the fields of nutrition,
public health, medicine and pharmacognosy for evaluation.
In scoring the papers, the expert reviewers considered
each study’s design and statistical evaluation, public
health significance, and potential to advance the field. The
Bibliography contains the 25 top-scoring papers.
