Low-level lead-induced neurotoxicity in children: an update on central nervous system effects
In integrating physiological and clinical data, it may be suggested that the different mechanisms of low level lead neurotoxicity have a final common functional pathway. Expand
P07.14: Dynamic assays of inhibin B, anti‐Mullerian hormone and estradiol following FSH stimulation and ovarian ultrasonography as predictors of IVF outcome
In young women aged <38 years, AFC or basal AMH and stimulated inhibin B predict ovarian response for IVF, while the only predictor for pregnancy is follicular or luteal phase AMH. Expand
Relationships among blood lead levels, iron deficiency, and cognitive development in two-year-old children.
Primary analyses suggested that 1) the change in cognitive functioning of iron-deficient children was related to change in hemoglobin, and 2) the decline in blood lead was less in iron- deficient than inIron-sufficient children, which is inversely related to changes in cognition. Expand

The identification of children with the most lead poisoning depends on screening for exposure (questionnaire) or evidence of increased absorption (BPb test), and follow-up is crucial to maximize the effectiveness of any intervention. Expand
Osteocalcin in human serum: a circadian rhythm.
This study illustrates the importance of regulating the time of blood sampling for osteocalcin determinations in clinical investigations of metabolic bone disease and found Circadian rhythmicity in circulating osteoccin was found in 9 of the 10 individuals studied. Expand
Circadian rhythms of blood minerals in humans.
A computer-derived model curve representing the 24-hour fluctuations in ionized calcium cannot be correlated consistently with curves for total calcium or phosphate. Expand
Declining blood lead levels and cognitive changes in moderately lead-poisoned children.
The results suggest an association between decreases in blood lead level and cognitive improvements in moderately lead-poisoned children. Expand
Circadian variations in serum zinc (Zn) concentrations: correlation with blood ionized calcium, serum total calcium and phosphate in humans.
The data conclusively demonstrate the presence of a circadian rhythm in serum Zn in healthy adult males and the high correlation between the Zn and ionized calcium patterns suggests a common regulator. Expand
Mercury exposure in an urban pediatric population.
It was found that 5% of subjects had unsuspected elevated urinary Hg levels, which strongly supports the need for further investigation of the sources of mercury exposure in this population of inner-city minority children. Expand
Feasibility of using single-slice MDCT to evaluate visceral abdominal fat in an urban pediatric population.
Visceral abdominal fat area calculated from a single abdominal MDCT slice obtained in children is highly correlated with total visceral abdominal fat and with BMI and involves limited radiation exposure. Expand
