Metals and arsenic in eye shadows
The overall results indicate that eye‐shadows probably have no significant systemic toxicological effects, and the groups at greatest risk are those already sensitized to the allergenic elements.
L-Tryptophan: Biochemical, nutritional and pharmacological aspects
The metabolism of tryptophan, its presence in the diet, the disorders associated with low tryPTophan levels due to low dietary intake, malabsorption, or high rates of metabolism, the therapeutic effects of tryptican and the side effects when it is used as a drug including eosinophilia myalgia syndrome are reviewed.
Contact allergens in toothpastes and a review of their hypersensitivity
The toothpastes offered for sale in Finland are not entirely safe to use, because almost 50% of the products studied contained a total of some 30 compounds widely recognized as allergens.
Radioimmunoassay of total and free corticosterone in rat plasma: Measurement of the effect of different doses of corticosterone
Allergenic ingredients in nail polishes
The nail polishes on the market today are not safe for all consumers, and according to the regulations of the European Union, the packaging labeling of all cosmetic products must be supplied with a list of ingredients from the beginning of 1998, to help the consumer to avoid allergenic products.
A quantitative method for measuring labeled compounds with whole-body autoradiography in tissue sections.
Target tissue morphology and serum biochemistry following 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) exposure in a TCDD-susceptible and a TCDD-resistant rat strain.
Colophony, formaldehyde and mercury in mascaras
Colophony was determined as methyl esters of the major resin acids after hydrolysis with ethanolic potassium hydroxide and formaldehyde was measured according to the European Commission Directive 90/207 /EEC, and mercury according to NIOSH method 6009 with cold vapour analysis.

The results clearly suggest an inhibitory role for the histaminergic system in the regulation of food intake and agree with, although not proving, the stimulatory control of vasopressin release by the histamine synthesis inhibitor in rat brain.
Free L-tryptophan plasma levels in antisocial violent offenders
Free plasma L-tryptophan/CAA levels were markedly increased among antisocial violent offenders indicating a disturbed tryptophan metabolism.
