To explore human biomonitor of persistent organic pollutants (POP) for public health risk assessment, extractable organohalogens (EOX), extractable persistent organohalogens (EPOX) and some selected organochlorine pesticides (OCP) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in children hair from urban and rural regions of Beijing, China, were measured by(More)
In order to study the daily Pb absorption in fetus and to monitor the main Pb sources in prenatal fetus, we have investigated several cases of Pb distribution along the longitudinal axis of fetal hair. The changes of Pb levels in the pregnancy period, even the daily changes of Pb levels can be detected in the hair. Therefore, by analyzing the Pb(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the tissue distribution and antitumor activity of 2-methoxyestradiol (2-ME) nanosuspension compared with 2-ME solution both in vitro and in vivo. 2-ME nanosuspension was made by nanoprecipitation-high-frequency ultrasonication method with the particle size of 168.4 ± 3.2 nm and the zeta potential of -29.79 ±(More)
Air pollution has become a serious problem in the Pearl River Delta, South China, particularly in winter due to the local micrometeorology. In this study, atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were monitored weekly in Shenzhen during the winter of 2006. Results indicated that the detected PAHs were mainly of vapor phase compounds with(More)
2-Methoxyestradiol (2-ME) is an endogenous metabolite of 17β-estradiol. In this study, we determined the antitumour activities of 2-ME on the well-differentiated EC9706 esophageal carcinoma cells in vitro. 2-ME had a strong antiproliferative effect on EC9706 cells and caused an increase in the population of apoptotic cells, detected by flow cytometry.
