'Global Iron Ore Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of iron ore and reserves by country. It also covers the historic and forecast data on global iron ore production, production by country, historic and forecast consumption and major exporting and importing countries. The report also includes demand drivers affecting the global iron ore mining industry, world steel demand by region, profiles of major iron ore producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development projects by region. Global iron ore reserves were 190 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2015, with Australia accounting for the largest share at 53Bnt or 27.9% of the total, followed by Brazil at 31Bnt (16.3%), Russia at 25Bnt (13.2%), China at 23Bnt (12.1%) and India at 8.1Bnt (4.3%). The Hamersley range, Pilbara region of Western Australia has rich deposits of hematite ore which normally contains 56–62% iron. Much of the hematite in the Pilbara is further categorized as direct shipping ore (DSO) because of its simplistic processing. In Brazil, iron ore is mainly extracted from hematite ores but can also be found in low grade itabirite ores which has iron content in the range of 35%–64%. Russian iron ore deposits are primarily located across the Ural region, Moscow and North West Russia. Chinese iron ore reserves are spread across the provinces of Liaoning, Sichuan, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shandong, Anhui, Hubei and Gansu. The report contains an overview of the global iron ore mining industry together with the key demand drivers affecting the industry. Further, it provides information about reserves, historic and forecast production and consumption, reserves and production by country, demand drivers affecting the global iron ore mining industry, world steel demand by region, major exporting and importing countries, competitive landscape and active, exploration and development projects. Gain an understanding of the global iron ore mining industry, the relevant demand drivers, reserves, historic and forecast production and consumption, trade (major exporting and importing countries), active, exploration and development projects and the competitive landscape. • Global iron ore reserves were 190 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2015, with Australia accounting for the largest share at 53Bnt or 27.9% of the total, followed by Brazil at 31Bnt (16.3%), Russia at 25Bnt (13.2%), China at 23Bnt (12.1%) and India at 8.1Bnt (4.3%). • In 2014, Australia was the largest producer of iron ore accounting for 36.1% of world production, followed by Brazil accounting for 20.2%, China (12.8%) and India (8.2%). • Australia was the largest exporter of iron ores and concentrates (including roasted iron pyrites) in 2014, exporting 755.1Mt, followed by Brazil (344.4Mt), South Africa (67.2Mt), Ukraine (40.9Mt) and Canada (40.3Mt).

New grant from National Institutes of Health will allow U-M researchers to focus on molecular changes that occur during and after exercise ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The University of Michigan was recently awarded $8.2 million from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the molecular changes that occur during and after physical activity. U-M is one of several centers throughout the United States to receive a grant from the NIH to participate in the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTrPAC). The 6-year funding will begin this month and will allow U-M to establish the Michigan Chemical Analysis Site within the Consortium. The Consortium brings together multiple scientific disciplines, including exercise physiology, genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics and computational sciences, to work together in a new and holistic way to determine the molecular changes that occur during and after physical activity in an attempt to identify the physiological pathways that lead to improved health and prevention of disease. Charles Burant, M.D., Ph.D., professor of internal medicine and molecular and integrative physiology, and Jun Li, Ph.D., associate professor of human genetics and computational medicine and bioinformatics, will lead the Michigan effort. The Michigan research team will work with four other chemical analysis sites to systematically analyze plasma and tissues collected from human participants and animals undergoing physical activity. Although it is well known that physical activity is beneficial to the human body in many ways, little is known about the molecular mechanisms of exercise that lead to improved health. In past studies of physical activity and exercise, researchers focus on one or only a few outcomes, such as increased muscle mass, or changes in blood pressure or blood lipid levels. The Consortium was created to assemble a comprehensive map of the proteins, peptides, circulating nucleic acids, lipids, hormones and other molecules that change during acute exercise and following exercising training. These are the signals that are most likely to convey the effects of exercise throughout the body. The Consortium will study up to 3,000 individuals, including analyzing their DNA and studying 25,000 blood samples, 7,500 skeletal muscle biopsies and 7,500 fat biopsies. Additional samples will be analyzed from animal models used to study the effects of exercise. For each sample, researchers will measure thousands of genes and metabolites. "No single lab can deliver groundbreaking work alone on this scale," Li says. "The scope and systematic approach of the Consortium is really what sets it apart from most studies in the past." Li will lead the Data Management and Bioinformatics Core and Burant will lead the Administrative and Analysis Cores within the Michigan Chemical Analysis Site. All of the information gathered in the Consortium will be stored in a publically accessible database that scientists from across the world can use to study the effect of exercise and how it may affect organs and tissues in the human body. "Discovering the similarities and differences among individuals in their responses to exercise will be important in prescribing the right amount and type of exercise for a person to improve their health," Burant says. "It may also provide some way in which we can mimic the beneficial effects of exercise in those who are not able to exercise enough to obtain health benefits. We're very excited to be able to work in the MoTrPAC Consortium with scientists across the country in what will be a new way for us to answer big scientific questions."

Molybdenum cofactor deficiency (MoCD) is a rare metabolic disorder characterized by severe and rapidly progressive neurologic damage caused by the functional loss of sulfite oxidase, 1 of 4 molybdenum-dependent enzymes. To date, no effective therapy is available for MoCD, and death in early infancy has been the usual outcome. We report here the case of a patient who was diagnosed with MoCD at the age of 6 days. Substitution therapy with purified cyclic pyranopterin monophosphate (cPMP) was started on day 36 by daily intravenous administration of 80 to 160 μg of cPMP/kg of body weight. Within 1 to 2 weeks, all urinary markers of sulfite oxidase (sulfite, S-sulfocysteine, thiosulfate) and xanthine oxidase deficiency (xanthine, uric acid) returned to almost normal readings and stayed constant (>450 days of treatment). Clinically, the infant became more alert, convulsions and twitching disappeared within the first 2 weeks, and an electroencephalogram showed the return of rhythmic elements and markedly reduced epileptiform discharges. Substitution of cPMP represents the first causative therapy available for patients with MoCD. We demonstrate efficient uptake of cPMP and restoration of molybdenum cofactor-dependent enzyme activities. Further neurodegeneration by toxic metabolites was stopped in the reported patient. We also demonstrated the feasibility to detect MoCD in newborn-screening cards to enable early diagnosis. Copyright © 2010 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
