    Effects of n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids on depressed mood: systematic review of published trials.
    Appleton KM, Hayward RC, Gunnell D, Peters TJ, Rogers PJ, Kessler D, Ness AR.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 Dec;84(6):1308-16. Review.
    PMID: 17158410

    Conclusions: Trial evidence that examines the effects of n-3 PUFAs on depressed mood is limited and is difficult to summarize and evaluate because of considerable heterogeneity. The evidence available provides little support for the use of n-3 PUFAs to improve depressed mood. Larger trials with adequate power to detect clinically important benefits are required.

    Vitamin K and the prevention of fractures: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
    Cockayne S, Adamson J, Lanham-New S, Shearer MJ, Gilbody S, Torgerson DJ.
    Arch Intern Med. 2006 Jun 26;166(12):1256-61. Review.
    PMID: 16801507

    Conclusions This systematic review suggests that supplementation with phytonadione and menaquinone-4 reduces bone loss. In the case of the latter, there is a strong effect on incident fractures among Japanese patients.

JAMA -- Fracture Prevention With Vitamin D Supplementation: A Meta-analysis of Randomiz... - 0 views

    Fracture prevention with vitamin D supplementation: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
    Bischoff-Ferrari HA, Willett WC, Wong JB, Giovannucci E, Dietrich T, Dawson-Hughes B.
    JAMA. 2005 May 11;293(18):2257-64. Review.
    PMID: 15886381

    Conclusions Oral vitamin D supplementation between 700 to 800 IU/d appears to reduce the risk of hip and any nonvertebral fractures in ambulatory or institutionalized elderly persons. An oral vitamin D dose of 400 IU/d is not sufficient for fracture prevention.
