Cadmium concentrations in human kidney in the UK: 1978-1993.
Almost 2700 samples of human renal cortex have been collected from throughout the UK over a 16 year period from 1978 to 1993. The mean Cd concentration was 19 micrograms g-1 and the median 16Expand

Distribution of selenium in human blood plasma and serum.
A method has been developed which separates the three major selenium-containing proteins found in human blood serum and plasma: selenoprotein-P, glutathione peroxidase and albumin. They wereExpand

Nickel metabolism in humans investigated with an oral stable isotope.
We report the results of the first complete study of nickel metabolism in human subjects using a stable nickel isotope (62Ni) as tracer. Four healthy adult subjects (two women and two men) fastedExpand

Age dependence of potentially toxic elements (Sb, Cd, Pb, Ag) in human liver tissue from paediatric subjects.
Toxic elements are present at low concentrations in the environment. This work was undertaken to investigate the age dependence of the liver content of selected elements in paediatric populations, asExpand

Nickel dermatitis: the reaction to oral nickel challenge
A double‐blind crossover oral challenge with placebo (lactose) or the equivalent of 400 μg elemental nickel (as nickel sulphate), was performed on 10 nickel‐sensitive volunteers with hand dermatitis.Expand

Simplified colorimetric determination of thiocyanate in biological fluids, and its application to investigation of the toxic amblyopias.
A colorimetric procedure for determination of small amounts of cyanide and thiocyanate, involving the synthesis of a pyridine dyestuff by the reaction of pyridine and an aromatic amine, has beenExpand

Microdiffusion method for estimation of cyanide in whole blood and its application to the study of conversion of cyanide to thiocyanate.
A microdiffusion technique has been used to separate and concentrate the nanomole amounts of cyanide in whole blood, and to permit its simplified colorimetric estimation ( 1 ). With this techniqueExpand
