Nutritional interventions and dietary supplementation for mitochondrial disease patients

Marni-J.-Falk-Mitochondria-2018-UpdatedProf. Marni J. Falk from University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, USA will talk about "Nutritional interventions and dietary supplementation for mitochondrial disease patientsduring the 9th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria, which will be held at Steigenberger Hotel, Berlin on October 23-25, 2018.


Talk Summary: "Mitochondrial diseases are a collectively common group of inherited metabolic disorders with extensive genetic, biochemical, and clinical heterogeneity that share impaired energy production capacity.  Resulting secondary cellular adaptations predictably occur that substantially alter diverse aspects of nutrient processing and intermediary metabolism.  Limited knowledge, with no therapeutic guidelines, currently exists regarding the use of dietary modification to improve health in mitochondrial disease patients.  Furthermore, the clinical implementation of either macromolecular nutrient modification or dietary supplements has been highly variable and poorly studied."
