Special Issue "Nutrigenomic in Health and Disease"

Nutrigenomics investigates the relationship between gene expression and nutrition. The pattern of nutrition is one of the most critical factors determining the health of the organism. At the same time, the changes in the gene expression are among the first events that trigger the development of particular disease. These facts make nutrigenomics a crucial branch of knowledge, helping in establishing healthy dietary patterns. This information is urgently needed since western diet led to the unprecedented occurrence of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer and obesity. Also obesity and cancer are growing problems in companion animals. Thus, the development of food composition for companion animals which help to overcome these issues is one of the challenges of animal nutrition research.
