Aflatoxin B1 albumin adduct levels and cellular immune status in Ghanaians.
Although aflatoxins (AFs) have been shown to be immune-suppressive agents in animals, the potential role of AFs in modifying the distribution and function of leukocyte subsets in humans has neverExpand
Green tea and bone health: Evidence from laboratory studies.
This review describes the effect of green tea with its bioactive components on bone health with an emphasis on the etiology of osteoporosis and evidence of osteo-protective impacts of greenTea on bone mass and microarchitecture in various bone loss models. Expand
Association between birth outcomes and aflatoxin B1 biomarker blood levels in pregnant women in Kumasi, Ghana
Investigation of the association between birth outcomes and blood levels of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1)‐lysine adduct in pregnant women in Kumasi, Ghana finds no link with birth outcomes. Expand
Fumonisin B1 contamination of home-grown corn in high-risk areas for esophageal and liver cancer in China
The high contamination rates ofFB1 found in food samples in Huaian and Fusui, along with previous reports, suggest a possible contributing role of FB1 in human esophageal- and hepato-carcinogenesis. Expand
Determinants of aflatoxin levels in Ghanaians: sociodemographic factors, knowledge of aflatoxin and food handling and consumption practices.
Findings indicate strongly that there is need for specifically targeted post-harvest and food handling and preparation interventions designed to reduce aflatoxin exposure among the different ethnic groups in this region of Ghana. Expand
Lycopene inhibits the growth of human androgen-independent prostate cancer cells in vitro and in BALB/c nude mice.
Results suggest that lycopene may specifically inhibit the growth of androgen-independent prostate cancers. Expand
Green tea and bone metabolism.
In general, tea and its bioactive components might decrease the risk of fracture by improving bone mineral density and supporting osteoblastic activities while suppressing osteoclastic activities. Expand
Etiological study of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in an endemic region: a population-based case control study in Huaian, China
Consuming acrid food, fatty meat, moldy food, salted and pickled vegetables, eating fast, introverted personality, passive smoking, a family history of cancer, esophageal lesion, and infection with Helicobacter pylori were significant risk factors for ESCC. Expand
Modulation of aflatoxin biomarkers in human blood and urine by green tea polyphenols intervention.
It is demonstrated that GTPs effectively modulate AFB(1) metabolism and metabolic activation and the reduction in AFB-AA levels over time was dose and time dependent. Expand
Green tea polyphenols supplementation and Tai Chi exercise for postmenopausal osteopenic women: safety and quality of life report
GTP at a dose of 500 mg/day and/or TC exercise at 3 hr/week for 24 weeks appear to be safe in postmenopausal osteopenic women, particularly in terms of liver and kidney functions. Expand
