The authors checked the mineral content of the abdominal aorta in 73 men and women against their calcium content of hair in autopsy material. It was stated that decreased level of haircalcium considerably precedes the start of the calcification process in vessels, thus its measuring may call attention to balance troubles of calcium metabolism in time.(More)
Experimental and literature values for hair calcium levels were evaluated to identify their physiological significance. The distribution of values obtained from different populations indicates that the calcium content of scalp hair reflects calcium metabolism in the body. Correlations between the hair calcium concentrations from different anatomical sites(More)
Increased common carotid artery (CCA) intima-media thickness (IMT) measured by B-mode ultrasound is an early marker of the atherosclerotic process. Arterial calcification is not clearly understood. Using the particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) method, we have looked for the location in the artery wall where calcium accumulated in the early phase of(More)
Human autopsy tissues from five patients with rheumatoid arthritis, who had been treated with aqueous solutions of gold and from an untreated control cadaver with the same disease, were analysed by x-ray flurescence spectrometry using a conventional Si(Li) detection system. The gold and zinc concentrations of tissues were determined and compared to some(More)
