Hyperhomocysteinemia due to short-term folate deprivation is related to electron microscopic changes in the rat brain.
We investigated the effects of folate deprivation on plasma folate and homocysteine and its effects on cerebral microvasculature using electron microscopy. Two levels of folic acid (0 mg and 4 mg/kgExpand

Effects of dietary folic acid supplementation on cerebrovascular endothelial dysfunction in rats with induced hyperhomocysteinemia
This study shows, for the first time, that hyperhomocysteinemia induces endothelial dysfunction in a rat brain, and that this can be alleviated by dietary folic acid supplementation. Our experimentsExpand

Folic acid supplementation can reduce the endothelial damage in rat brain microvasculature due to hyperhomocysteinemia.
To evaluate the effects of dietary folic acid supplementation on the cerebral vascular damage induced by hyperhomocysteinemia, rats were fed a diet containing 3.0 g/kg homocystine for 2 wk and thenExpand

A polymorphism in DMT1 is associated with lead-related hypertensive status
Divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) is an iron transporting membrane protein important for dietary iron uptake and as a carrier of other metals, such as zinc, copper, and lead. This study evaluatedExpand

Short-Term Hyperhomocysteinemia-Induced Oxidative Stress Activates Retinal Glial Cells and Increases Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Expression in Rat Retina
Hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with an increase in the incidence of vascular diseases, including retinal vascular diseases. We examined the effects of high plasma levels of homocysteine onExpand

A polymorphism in AGT and AGTR1 gene is associated with lead-related high blood pressure
We investigated the association of polymorphisms in two renin-angiotensin system-related genes, expressed as angiotensinogen (AGT) and angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AGTR1), with blood lead levelsExpand

Effect of Urinary Bisphenol A on Androgenic Hormones and Insulin Resistance in Preadolescent Girls: A Pilot Study from the Ewha Birth & Growth Cohort
To assess the effect of urinary bisphenol A (BPA) on repeated measurements of androgenic hormones and metabolic indices, we used multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) adjusted for potentialExpand

Simultaneous superficial hyperthermia and external radiotherapy: report of thermal dosimetry and tolerance to treatment.
BACKGROUND In vitro and animal studies indicate that a moderate temperature of 41 degrees C maintained for approximately 1 h will provide radiosensitization if radiation (RT) and hyperthermia (HT)Expand
