Nutrient-Drug Interactions Guide from C.H.I.P.S.

Nutrient-Drug Interactions

by Kelly Anne Meckling

Nutrient-Drug Interactions covers food, herbals, and their chemical constituents as contributors to human health through control of metabolism, primarily as they relate to chronic disease development and treatment.

Nutrient-Drug Interactions highlights the ailment being treated or prevented and the targets of therapy. Each chapter provides a comprehensive examination of the macronutrient, micronutrient, and phytochemical impact on drug action and includes advice on modification or supplementation in those cases where diet is a factor. The chapters focus on the molecular mechanism by which a food or chemical is thought to modify disease process and drug behavior. The book describes the roles of genetic variation and polymorphism in determining nutrient/drug responses, how they might be "profiled" to identify those likely to demonstrate specific interactions, and who would benefit from adjuvant or complementary therapies.

Features of Nutrient-Drug Interactions:

  • Provides an analysis of hyperlipidemia and dyslipidemia treatment using both drug therapy and dietary modifications
  • Discusses how chemoprotective phytochemicals improve metabolic imbalance and can dramatically alter the carcinogenicity of dietary carciogens
  • Reviews the biochemical mechanisms by which nutritional antioxidants can reduce or block neuronal death in neurodegenerative disorders
  • Presents observed drug-nutrient interactions that have been noted in the pharmacotherapy of unipolar depression
  • Focuses on polymorphism where the intake of a specific nutrient related to that polymorphism affects the pathogenesis of CVD and/or cancer
  • Analyzes the present state of nutrigenomic and pharmacogenomic research in relation to human cancer
