The durum wheat line DT696 is a source of moderate Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance. Previous analysis using a bi-parental population identified two FHB resistance quantitative trait loci (QTL) on chromosome 5A: 5A1 was co-located with a plant height QTL, and 5A2 with a major maturity QTL. A Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) of DT696 derivative lines from 72 crosses based on multi-environment FHB resistance, plant height, and maturity phenotypic data was conducted to improve the mapping
more » ... resolution and further elucidate the genetic relationship of height and maturity with FHB resistance. The Global Tetraploid Wheat Collection (GTWC) was exploited to identify durum wheat lines with DT696 allele and additional recombination events. The 5A2 QTL was confirmed in the derivatives, suggesting the expression stability of the 5A2 QTL in various genetic backgrounds. The GWAS led to an improved mapping resolution rendering the 5A2 interval 10 Mbp shorter than the bi-parental QTL mapping interval. Haplotype analysis using SNPs within the 5A2 QTL applied to the GTWC identified novel haplotypes and recombination breakpoints, which could be exploited for further improvement of the mapping resolution. This study suggested that GWAS of derivative breeding lines is a credible strategy for improving mapping resolution.

Target Product Profiles for a Micronutrient Assessment Tool and Associated Blood Collection Device for Use in Population-Based Surveys: An Expert Consensus [article]

Micronutrient deficiencies are a significant public health problem affecting a large portion of the world population. Disproportionately affected populations, namely infants, young children, adolescents and women of reproductive age including pregnant women, are especially susceptible to the health consequences of insufficient micronutrient intakes. However, assessment of micronutrient deficiencies is not routinely included in population health surveys. This nutrition data gap hampers policy,
more » ... ogram, and promotion efforts to prevent and treat micronutrient deficiencies. To address one of the barriers to micronutrient assessment, an expert group created a consensus of a target product profile (TPP) for a micronutrient assessment tool and associated blood collection device for use in population surveys. Experts in laboratory medicine, micronutrient assessment, population-based surveys, and product development reviewed proposed TPP standards and collaboratively established minimum and optimal characteristics. These experts defined the target population as infants and children from 6-59 months, adolescents and women of reproductive age 12-49 years including pregnant women. At minimum, the assessment tool should be a multiplex ELISA formatted for >1 analyte that uses a serum or plasma sample prepared from venous blood obtained by a phlebotomist with a 2-week training. Given the use case was specific for population surveys, experts agreed the minimum tool could be semi-quantitative, with analytical specificity of 99%. The TPP also considers the variable field environments for testing (e.g. storage conditions and time to results). The consensus TPP developed can be used to guide selection of existing technologies into population-based surveys, as well as future investment in product development. Partnerships focused on research and development, including industry, public sector, nonprofit, and academic institutions, can help advance the field and fill the micronutrient data gap.

Background Healthy Living after Cancer (HLaC) was a national dissemination and implementation study of an evidence-based lifestyle intervention for cancer survivors. The program was imbedded into existing telephone cancer information and support services delivered by Australian state-based Cancer Councils (CC). We report here the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of the program. Methods In this phase IV study (single-group, pre-post design) participants - survivors
more » ... of any type of cancer, following treatment with curative intent - received up to 12 nurse/allied health professional-led telephone health coaching calls over 6 months. Intervention delivery was grounded in motivational interviewing, with emphasis on evidence-based behaviour change strategies. Using the RE-AIM evaluation framework, primary outcomes were reach, indicators of program adoption, implementation, costs and maintenance. Secondary (effectiveness) outcomes were participant-reported anthropometric, behavioural and psychosocial variables including: weight; physical activity; dietary intake; quality-of-life; treatment side-effects; distress; and fear of cancer recurrence and participant satisfaction. Changes were evaluated using linear mixed models, including terms for timepoint (0/6 months), strata (Cancer Council), and timepoint x strata. Results Four of 5 CCs approached participated in the study. In total, 1183 cancer survivors were referred (mostly via calls to the Cancer Council telephone information service). Of these, 90.4% were eligible and 88.7% (n = 791) of those eligible consented to participate. Retention rate was 63.4%. Participants were mostly female (88%), aged 57 years and were overweight (BMI = 28.8 ± 6.5 kg/m2). Improvements in all participant-reported outcomes (standardised effect sizes of 0.1 to 0.6) were observed (p < 0.001). The program delivery costs were on average AU$427 (US$296) per referred cancer survivor. Conclusions This telephone-delivered lifestyle intervention, which was feasibly implemented by Cancer Councils, led to meaningful and statistically significant improvements in cancer survivors' health and quality-of-life at a relatively low cost.

Given evidence shows physical activity, a healthful diet and weight management can improve cancer outcomes and reduce chronic disease risk, the major cancer organisations and health authorities have endorsed related guidelines for cancer survivors. Despite these, and a growing evidence base on effective lifestyle interventions, there is limited uptake into survivorship care. Methods/Design: Healthy Living after Cancer (HLaC) is a national dissemination and implementation study that will
more » ... the integration of an evidence-based lifestyle intervention for cancer survivors into an existing telephone cancer information and support service delivered by Australian state-based Cancer Councils. Eligible participants (adults having completed cancer treatment with curative intent) will receive 12 health coaching calls over 6 months from Cancer Council nurses/allied health professionals targeting national guidelines for physical activity, healthy eating and weight control. Using the RE-AIM evaluation framework, primary outcomes are service-level indicators of program reach, adoption, implementation/costs and maintenance, with secondary (effectiveness) outcomes of patient-reported anthropometric, behavioural and psychosocial variables collected at pre-and post-program completion. The total participant accrual target across four participating Cancer Councils is 900 over 3 years. Discussion: The national scope of the project and broad inclusion of cancer survivors, alongside evaluation of service-level indicators, associated costs and patient-reported outcomes, will provide the necessary practice-based evidence needed to inform future allocation of resources to support healthy living among cancer survivors.
