Methemoglobinemia: etiology, pharmacology, and clinical management.
Methemoglobin (MHb) may arise from a variety of etiologies including genetic, dietary, idiopathic, and toxicologic sources. Symptoms vary from mild headache to coma/death and may not correlate with… Expand
Maternal Fish Consumption, Hair Mercury, and Infant Cognition in a U.S. Cohort
Fish and other seafood may contain organic mercury but also beneficial nutrients such as n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. We endeavored to study whether maternal fish consumption during pregnancy… Expand

RATIONALE Exposure to particulate air pollution has been related to increased hospitalization and death, particularly from cardiovascular disease. Lower blood DNA methylation content is found in… Expand
The outdoor air pollution and brain health workshop.
Accumulating evidence suggests that outdoor air pollution may have a significant impact on central nervous system (CNS) health and disease. To address this issue, the National Institute of… Expand

A pilot study was conducted to explore the potential associations between hair metal levels and the neuropsychological function and behavior of school-aged children. Thirty-two children, 11-13 years… Expand
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Urinary Metabolites of Organophosphate Pesticides
OBJECTIVE: The goal was to examine the association between urinary concentrations of dialkyl phosphate metabolites of organophosphates and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children… Expand
Maternal fish intake during pregnancy, blood mercury levels, and child cognition at age 3 years in a US cohort.
The balance of contaminant risk and nutritional benefit from maternal prenatal fish consumption for child cognitive development is not known. Using data from a prospective cohort study of 341… Expand
Maternal Fish Intake During Pregnancy, Blood Mercury Levels, and Child Cognition at Age 3 Years in a US Cohort
While fish (and other seafood) may contain beneficial nutrients, such as n-3 fatty acids, they may also contain potentially harmful substances such as mercury. The fetal brain is especially sensitive… Expand
