Swiss Webster mice were exposed to excess dietary aluminum (Al) (1000 micrograms Al/g diet, Al as Al lactate) from conception to 6 months of age. Splenic lymphocytes (10(6) per culture) were incubated for 24 hrs with concanavalin A (5 micrograms/ml). Concentrations of interleukin-2, interferon-gamma and tumor necrosis factor-alpha, as measured in(More)
BACKGROUND The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) is a New World primate that has been used increasingly in toxicological evaluations including testing for testicular toxicity of pharmaceutical and environmental chemicals. Information on structural and functional characteristics of the testis in common marmosets ("marmoset" in this review) is critical for(More)
Swiss Webster mice were exposed to excess dietary aluminum (500 or 1000 micrograms Al/g as Al lactate) from conception until weaning or from conception through adulthood (pre- and postweaning). Controls were fed a 7 micrograms Al/g diet. Excess Al diets did not influence pregnancy outcome, pup mortality, and body or organ weights. Al diets of 1000(More)
Excessive dietary aluminum (Al) has been proposed to be a factor contributing to several neurological disorders in humans. Six 8-week-old female Swiss Webster mice were fed for 10 weeks purified diets containing 100 (control, 100 Al), 500 (500 Al) or 1000 (1000 Al) micrograms Al/g diet. Brain and liver lipid peroxidation was determined by evaluating the(More)
Human studies have shown that iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia in infants are associated with behavioral impairment, but the periods of brain development most susceptible to iron deficiency have not been established. In the present study, rhesus monkeys were deprived of iron by dietary iron restriction during prenatal (n=14, 10 microg Fe/g diet)(More)
The present study demonstrated aluminum-induced neurotoxicity in mouse dams and developmental retardation in their offspring following oral exposure to several dose levels during gestation and lactation. Female mice fed aluminum lactate (AL) at levels of 500 or 1000 ppm in their diet from Day 0 gestation to Day 21 postpartum were compared to mice which(More)
The possible neurobehavioral effects of excess manganese in soy formula were studied. Male rhesus monkeys (n=8/group) were fed a commercial cow's milk based formula (Control), a commercial soy protein based formula (Soy), or the soy formula with added manganese (Soy+Mn) from birth to 4 months of age. Soy formulas naturally have higher manganese (Mn) content(More)
