Article collection: Stunting, undernutrition and obesity: the triple threat of childhood malnutrition

We are pleased to launch our new article collection on childhood malnutrition. The articles in this collection investigate the problems and underlying mediating factors of this global health issue, and highlight the impact of potential solutions.

Research: Amount of sugar sold in soft drinks drops by 30% in the UK

Action by the soft drinks industry to reduce sugar, together with changes in consumer purchasing behavior, have resulted in a staggering 30% decrease in sale of sugars from these products between 2015 and 2018, equivalent to a reduction in 4.6 g sugar per person per day.

Research: Youth depression alleviation with anti-inflammatory agents

The YoDA-A trial aimed to determine whether aspirin or rosuvastatin reduced depressive symptoms in people aged 15-25, concluding that the use of either compound compared to placebo had no beneficial effect over routine treatment for depression in young people.

Research: Accessing pregnancy-specific adaptive immunity during placental malaria

In this systemic review and meta-analysis, antibody responses to several antigens were positively associated with the presence of placental malaria and peripheral infection. These are the initial steps to the identification of antigens which could lead to the development of vaccines to improve birth outcomes.

Aims and scope
