Lead and other trace metals in preeclampsia: a case-control study in Tehran, Iran.
TLDR
Environmental exposure to Pb, Sb and Mn may increase the risk of preeclampsia in women without occupational exposure; levels of metals in UCB to be sensitive indicators of female reproductive toxicity as compared with those in mother MWB. Expand
Assessment of Urinary Cotinine as a Marker of Nicotine Absorption from Tobacco Leaves: A Study on Tobacco Farmers in Malaysia
TLDR
As tobacco farmers evidence a risk of nicotine poisoning from tobacco leaves, assessment including GTS together with effects of pesticides will be necessary. Expand
Changes in T cell subpopulations in lead workers.
TLDR
There was a significant positive correlation between the percentage of CD3+CD45RA+ (naive T) cells and PbB in the lead workers and it is suggested that CD45RO+ memory T cells may be most susceptible to the effects of lead on T cell subpopulations. Expand
Gaschromatographic determination of butoxyacetic acid after hydrolysis of conjugated metabolites in urine from workers exposed to 2-butoxyethanol
TLDR
The determination of total BAA in urine is a suitable test for the biological monitoring of BE exposure, because of the simplicity in procedures and the good agreement with BE exposure levels. Expand
delta-Aminolevulinic acid in plasma or whole blood as a sensitive indicator of lead effects, and its relation to the other heme-related parameters.
TLDR
ALA-P is the best discriminators of lead exposure form baseline to high levels of exposure and ALA-U and zinc protoporphyrin were less effective for the diagnosis of lead Exposure than ALAD and ALa-P. Expand
δ-Aminolevulinic acid in plasma or whole blood as a sensitive indicator of lead effects, and its relation to the other home-related parameters
To evaluate the subclinical effect of lead exposure, we determined δ-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) levels in plasma (ALA-P), blood (ALA-B), and urine (ALA-U) and the activity of δ-aminolevulinic acidExpand
Relationship between delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase genotypes and heme precursors in lead workers.
TLDR
ALAD1 homozygotes might be more susceptible than ALAD2 carriers to disturbances in heme metabolism caused by lead exposure, and they showed significantly higher levels of ZP and ALA-P in comparison with those of ALad2 carriers at Pb-B levels more than 20 microg/dL and 40 microg/. Expand
Critical Dose of Lead Affecting δ‐Aminolevulinic Acid Levels
TLDR
The benchmark dose method, recently used in the environmental health field in place of the no‐observed‐adverse‐effect level, was introduced into this study and it is suggested that the critical dose of BPb causing the increased levels of ALA is below 10 µg/dl. Expand
Relationship between Increased Blood Lead and Pregnancy Hypertension in Women without Occupational Lead Exposure in Tehran, Iran
TLDR
Results of this study indicated that low-level lead exposure may be a risk factor for pregnancy hypertension. Expand
Changes in natural killer cell subpopulations in lead workers
TLDR
It is suggested that the CD16+ NK cell should be a major site of the effects of lead on lymphocyte subpopulations as well as that in the controls and in the low-PbB group. Expand
