Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with the alterations in the metabolism of copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), and magnesium (Mg). The aim of the present study was to investigate plasma levels of these elements in patients with DM and in healthy subjects. Association between glycated hemoglobin and levels of metals was also evaluated. We studied 36 subjects with DM(More)
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is associated with alterations in the metabolism of some trace elements which may participate in the pathogenesis of this disorder. The aims of the present study were to investigate the trace element status (copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), copper to zinc ratio (Cu/Zn ratio), selenium (Se), and lead (Pb)) of ADHD(More)
INTRODUCTION Magnesium is currently a subject of major interest in biology and medicine. Magnesium is intimately involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions. particularly in processes involving the formation and utilization of ATP. It is known that alcoholism is connected with hypomagnesemia. There are also several studies describing the disorders of magnesium(More)
We read with interest the recent study by Gaillard et al. (1) focused on relationships between paraoxonase (PON1) activity and oxidized LDL and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in nondiabetic, postmenopausal women. Higher CVDmortality and morbidity in the presence of higher HDL cholesterol is a frequent occurrence in African American women compared(More)
To the Editor: We carefully read the Letter to the Editor (BTER-D-1500681) BWere plasma trace element levels changed in the children with ADHD?^ by Rongwang et al. [1] containing the comments about our study. We would like to thank the authors for their valuable comments and also to answer a number of points that need clarification. Our study [2] was(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The model of vitamin D3-induced calcinosis in rats makes it possible to follow important aspects of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism regulation not only in vessels, but also in the myocardium and in other organs of experimental animals. THE AIM of this paper is to follow the influence of isradipine on some lipid parameters in the(More)
OBJECTIVES Decreased activity of HDL-associated paraoxonase 1 (PON1) and elevated levels of lipid peroxides together with abnormal lipid profile may prognosticate the progression of atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to assess associations between selected oxidative stress markers (PON1, lipid peroxides) and lipid risk factors for cardiovascular(More)
