The Authors demonstrate that serum alkaline phosphatase (s-ALP) activity in vitro is inhibited by NaDDTC. This may be related to the NaDDTC chelating action on zinc enzyme. The trend of the phenomenon follows an exponential pattern. The activity of the isozyme pool was restored after removal from medium of NaDDTC by dialysis. The NaDDTC concentration able(More)
The Authors demonstrate that serum LAP activity in vitro is inhibited by NaDDTC. This may be related to the NaDDTC chelating-like action on the metallo-enzyme. The trend of the phenomenon follows an exponential pattern. The enzyme activity was completely restored after removal of NaDDTC from the medium by dialysis. The NaDDTC concentration able to inhibit(More)
In order to evaluate the risk of the exposure of the pesticides and N-nitroso compounds in the agricultural environment not only farm-hands have to be considered but also their families. So it is necessary to prepare survey methodologies to examine the state of health of all individuals who are exposed to same kind of risk (pesticides and nitroso(More)
Healthcare workers (HCW) are exposed to many different pathogens, and cases of occupational infection have been reported involving the vast majority of known and emerging agents. The risk is present during all the phases of patient care and manipulation of biologic materials, and the implementation of Standard Precautions--and biosafety level 2 measures in(More)
In this second note, the Authors consider the environment surrounding the farms to identify the agricultural practices affecting both the ecological bicycle and the health of the farm-hands. The risk factors in the farm are principally the use of agricultural chemicals (pesticides, fertilizers, nitroso-compounds, etc.) and quality of the irrigation and(More)
Experiments of NaDDTC effect on kidney and 10,000 X g liver supernatant fraction have shown no modification of normal GGT activity, also after dialysis. A decrease of about 75% of the GGT activity was observed in rabbit 10,000 X g liver supernatant fraction after i.p. treatment with 100 mg/kg of NaDDTC for three days. It is suggested that liver MFO produces(More)
The surveying of weight and height allows to measure for every subject the body mass index which is a risk indicator both for obesity and for juvenile blood hypertension. The A. have verified and demonstrated that the surveying of weight and height orally told by teen-agers can be a rapid and economic instrument to execute a first screening for such(More)
On the basis of various epidemiological studies, the specificity, sensitivity and predictive value of different indicators of obesity and overweight in relation to risk factor of juvenile hypertension are discussed. These screening tests, although highly specific, lack in sensitivity. The Authors suggest that such tests could be considered as useful tools(More)
