The aim of this study was to (1) estimate the concentration of selenium in the plasma of 146 residents (65 men and 81 women) and in the hair of 34 persons from the Gdańsk region in northern Poland, aged 19–70 and (2) compare the obtained results with data corresponding to healthy populations living in different European countries. Selenium in plasma was(More)
The aim of this study was to (1) determine the selenium concentration in the renal cortex, liver, and hair in 64 residents from northern Poland (Gdańsk region) aged 17–81 yr, who died suddenly, and (2) assess whether a correlation between the selenium concentration in hair and in the renal cortex and liver occurs. Selenium was determined by atomic(More)
OBJECTIVE In major depressive disorder (MDD) hypozincaemia associated with symptoms severity, melancholia, anxiety and treatment-resistance is reported. Data linking zinc with specific psychopathological dimensions is limited. METHODS Plasma zinc was analyzed in this cross-sectional case-control study on 20 non-late-life adult, treatment-naïve MDD(More)
Chick embryonic RNA was fractionated by affinity chromatography on oligo(dT)-cellulose and poly(U)-Sepharose into three classes: poly(A)+RNA containing poly(A) segments of 100 and more residues, poly(A)-oligo(A)+RNA containing oligo(A) segments of about 25 residues, and poly(A)-oligo(A)-RNA which bound to neither of the beds used and which contained(More)
The aim of this study was: (a) to estimate the concentration of selenium in plasma of 136 residents (59 men and 77 women) of the Gdansk region, northern Poland, aged 19-70; and (b) to compare the obtained results with data corresponding to healtly populations living in different European countries. Selenium in plasma was determined by atomic absorption(More)
Cadmium, lead, selenium and zinc levels were determined in placenta, maternal blood and cord blood of 53 women at delivery from Gdansk region. Non-smokers [NS], passive smokers [PS] and smokers [S] were identified by the questionnaire. Our results suggest that there is no smoking impact on the levels of determined elements in placenta. Smoking women have(More)
Plasma magnesium concentration changes are seen in major depressive disorder (MDD). Dysregulation of magnesium homeostasis is associated with the severity of depression and specific psychopathological features including apathy, anxiety, irritability, fatigue and weakness. Results from studies on magnesium concentrations in MDD patients are inconsistent, and(More)
