IECN 2022 Live Sessions

Webinar 1

Nutrition, gut and immune inflammation: point of views from basic and translational science

Introduction: Increasing one’s intake of foods rich in nutrients is one of the preventative measures one can take against chronic inflammatory and metabolic diseases. However, very recent epidemiological data have shown conflicting results regarding how the consumption of nutrient-rich foods impacts on the risk of these diseases.
Beyond the mere caloric intake in a diet, a multitude of factors related to the individual exposure to the environment mediate the link between nutrition, inflammation, and metabolic diseases. This is the case of the gut microbiota, which is a pivotal player both in the metabolism of foods and in the systemic absorption of nutrients and pathogen inflammatory molecules. Additionally, the key role of the inflammasome has recently been highlighted; this is a system involved not only in fighting against pathogens, but also in metabolic complications. Furthermore, diet can also exert long-term inflammatory effects induced by the epigenetic effects of environmental factors.
Multiple arrays of circulating biomarkers developed during recent decades now mark all these pathogenic mechanisms, and their analysis in widely used epidemiological approaches indicates their value for risk estimation and prevention.
The aim of this session is to bring together international scientists from different backgrounds, discussing the relationship between nutrition, the gut, and inflammation in metabolic chronic diseases. We hope to provide a comprehensive update of evidence that will, in the future, offer a novel perspective of the diet that improve on current recommendations for the prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases.

Webinar 2

Breast milk: a source of bioactive compounds

Introduction: Breast milk is the biological fluid produced by the breasts of mammalian mothers in order to nourish infants and confer on them protection from disease until their own immune system can mature. Accordingly, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life, followed by continued breastfeeding with adequate complementary foods for up to 2 years or beyond, as mutually desired by mother and infant.
Breast milk composition varies between feeds, throughout the day, and between mothers. Interindividual variability has been attributed to genetic variation, maternal adiposity, and nutrition, among other factors. The composition of human milk is dynamic and changes throughout lactation.
The first form of milk produced by the mammary glands during the first 2–4 days after delivery is colostrum, which is produced in low volumes (300–400 mL/day) and has higher levels of protein and lower levels of carbohydrates and fat content than mature breast milk. Moreover, colostrum is richer in immunological components, such as immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, leucocytes, and oligosaccharides, suggesting that its primary functions are immunological rather than nutritional.
From days 4–5 after delivery, colostrum changes to transition milk, which is characterized by a higher yield (500–800 mL/day) and by lower protein and immunoglobulin content, accompanied by an increase in lactose, fat, and water-soluble vitamins to meet the growth demands of the infant.
Finally, mature milk remains relatively similar in composition 6 weeks after delivery. While 87% of breast milk is water, the remaining 13% is nutritional components and bioactive compounds that have beneficial non-nutritional functions. These latter compounds include a wide range of antimicrobial factors, microorganisms (which constitute the breast milk microbiota), cytokines, hormones, growth modulators, digestive enzymes, and many metabolites derived from the mother’s activity.
The aim of this session is to bring together international experts on the human milk immunoglobulinome, microbiome, and metabolome, among others, which could be of special relevance for the development and immunity of babies.

Welcome from the Chairs

Dear researchers,

We are pleased to announce the Second Electronic Conference in Nutrients. The conference edition will focus on Nutrition Support for Immunity and Countermeasure Effects on Infection, Inflammation, and Oxidative Stress. The immune system is complex, distributed throughout the body, and highly active. Appropriate nutrients are necessary for the varied cells of the immune system to function optimally and respond to injury, inflammation, oxidative stress, and invading viruses and bacteria. This conference will provide current trends and insights into nutritional immunology, and immunonutrition strategies to counter infection, inflammation, and oxidative stress.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchanges within the community.

This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns about travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because research is concerned with human nutrition and health. An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. The participation, as well as the “attendance” of this online conference, is free of charge.

We hope the community will share this enthusiasm and help to make this first edition a success—for many to come in the future.
