Media coverage of the recent TMAU paper published by Monell Institute

We recently posted about the new TMAU paper published by the Monell Institute in Philadelphia. There has been some interesting (but seemingly limited) media coverage.

Science Daily TMAU Article
Science Daily always do comprehensive articles on medical papers. The paper itself is premium content, so the media articles provide free insight into the full paper. A quote of interest from the Science Daily is about the seeming variation of odor. The quote seems to imply they are concluding the variation is down to trimethylamine

"Although the scientific and popular literature typically describes TMAU sufferers as smelling fishy, our sensory exams demonstrated this not to be so," said study author George Preti, Ph.D., an analytical organic chemist at Monell. "The odors are diverse and only after a choline challenge do the most severe cases have a fish-like odor."

Washington Post TMAU article
In this article, of particular interest is that the journalist says that between 1-11% could have trimethylaminuria. Presumably most would be the transient kind.

An estimated 1 percent to 11 percent of the population may have trimethylaminuria, notes the study, published in August in the American Journal of Medicine.

Unfortunately there does not seem to be much more media coverage in the story that was quick to find in a google news search.
