Although recent reports suggest that selenium can modulate the activity of cytotoxic drugs, the mechanism underlying this activity remains unclear. This has been investigated using a panel of human B-cell lymphoma cell lines. The cytotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic agents (e.g., doxorubicin, etoposide, 4-hydroperoxycyclophosphamide, melphalan, and(More)
This paper describes the production and characteristics of the nanoparticle test materials prepared for common use in the collaborative research project NanoChOp (Chemical and optical characterization of nanomaterials in biological systems), in casu suspensions of silica nanoparticles and CdSe/CdS/ZnS quantum dots (QDs). This paper is the first to(More)
One of the unresolved issues of the European Water Framework Directive is the unavailability of realistic water reference materials for the organic priority pollutants at low nanogram-per-liter concentrations. In the present study, three different types of ready-to-use water test materials were developed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs),(More)
A large number of studies has been published proposing a range of vanadium containing compounds as potential new anti-diabetic drugs due to the observed insulin mimetic function of V(IV) complexes. Vanadium uptake and distribution within the body have been investigated in animal models by determination of total vanadium concentrations. Phase I and phase IIa(More)
Zinc stable isotope tracers (⁶⁷Zn and ⁷⁰Zn) were injected into rats at two different time points to investigate the feasibility of using tracers to study zinc kinetics at the microscale within distinct tissue features. Laser ablation coupled to multi-collector ICP-MS was used to analyse average isotope ratios in liver thin sections and to generate(More)
