Cadmium in blood and urine--impact of sex, age, dietary intake, iron status, and former smoking--association of renal effects.
Cd levels in kidneys from pigs, fed locally produced cereals, did not predict BCd or UCd in humans at the same farms, and the kidney function parameter ss2-microglobulin-creatinine clearance was related to UCd, whereas urinary protein-HC, N-acetyl-ss-glucoseaminidase or albumin-Creatinine cleared was not when age was accounted for.

Ochratoxin A in cow's milk and in human milk with corresponding human blood samples.
A method for determining ochratoxin A in milk has been elaborated in which the sample was subjected to a liquid-liquid extraction step and then purified on a silica gel column packed in a PasteurExpand
Total and Inorganic Mercury in Breast Milk and Blood in Relation to Fish Consumption and Amalgam Fillings in Lactating Women
Total mercury concentrations (mean +/- standard deviation) in breast milk, blood, and hair samples collected 6 wk after delivery from 30 women who lived in the north of Sweden were 0.6 +/- 0.4 ng/gExpand
EFSA Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food (ANS),
The present opinion deals with the re-evaluation of konjac (E 425), comprising konjac gum (E 425 i) and konjac glucomannan (E 425 ii) when used as food additives. Following the conceptual frameworkExpand
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry for direct multi-element analysis of diluted human blood and serum
A method for the inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) multi-element analysis of diluted human blood and serum was used for the following elements: Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Se, Rb, Mo,Expand
Iron status influences trace element levels in human blood and serum.
Previous indications that cadmium, cobalt, and copper are absorbed by transport mechanisms similar to that of Fe are supported by this study and strong positive correlations between Fe status and mercury concentrations remain to be explained. Expand
Total and inorganic mercury in breast milk in relation to fish consumption and amalgam in lactating women.
The results indicated that there was an efficient transfer of inorganic mercury from blood to milk and that, in this population, mercury from amalgam fillings was the main source of mercury in milk. Expand
Mixture effects of imidazole fungicides on cortisol and aldosterone secretion in human adrenocortical H295R cells.
It is concluded that single imidazoles and mixtures have specific effects on adrenal hormone secretion and can only partly be predicted using current models and need to be further analyzed in terms of in vivo relevance and human risk assessment. Expand
Lead and cadmium levels in human milk and blood.
Blood and milk levels of lead and cadmium were low in both areas and there was no difference in blood lead levels between the two groups after delivery. Expand
Risk assessment in relation to neonatal metal exposure.
Better understanding of the neonatal exposure, including kinetics in the lactating mother and in the newborn, and effects of toxic metals in different age groups is needed for the risk assessment. Expand
