Correlation of molecular and morphologic effects of thermoembolization in a swine model using mass spectrometry imaging.
Experiments performed using a new method called thermoembolization in vivo in a swine model are encouraging and may lead to a therapy with less local recurrence and improved overall survival for patients with this disease. Expand
Breastfeeding and maternal and infant iodine nutrition
Information available regarding iodine secretion in milk, both mothers and infants iodine nutrition during breastfeeding and to make recommendations for appropriate iodine supplementation during lactation are explored. Expand
Milk iodine concentration in cows treated orally or intramuscularly with a single dose of iodinated fa�y acid esters
The effect of a single oral dose of iodinated fa�y acid esters (IFAE) on iodine levels in colostrum and milk of goats was tested. In experimental goats that received a single oral dose of IFAE beforeExpand

In spite of low iodine concentrations found in milk of mothers consuming low-iodine natural foods, long lasting or even life-lasting benefits to the breast-fed infant are demonstrable. Expand
Subclinical protein malnutrition is a determinant of hyperhomocysteinemia.
The data point to a progressive deterioration of protein nutrition status impairing the transsulfuration pathway and is best explained by an acquired defect of cystathionine-beta-synthase activity. Expand


Iodised rapeseed oil for eradication of severe endemic goitre
The prolonged protection offered by Brassiodol can be attributed to its unique lipid profile, and the urinary output argues that 1 mL should not be exceeded, and at that dose the cost would be only 20 US cents per person per year. Expand
Prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders and goitre in Chad
A nationwide sample survey was conducted in Chad to establish the prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) and females had goitre significantly more often, and cretinism varied between o and 1.2%, and was highest in the Sahel zone. Expand
Nutritional and hormonal regulation of thyroid hormone deiodinases.
Structural and functional analyses of the type 1 deiodinase mRNA allowed identification of the selenocysteine insertion sequence (SECIS) element, a stem-loop structure in the 3' untranslated region of the mRNA. Expand
The effects of different doses of oral iodized oil on goiter size, urinary iodine, and thyroid-related hormones.
The data indicate that oral administration of 200 mg iodine is effective and acceptable for treating iodine deficiency in adults for 1 yr and the risks of side-effects and the shortage of medical resources, higher doses are not recommended. Expand
3 The iodothyronine deiodinases and 5′-deiodination
Changes in 5′-deiodination occur in a number of situations such as poor nutrition, illness, iodine and selenium deficiency, and drug therapy, and in iodine deficiency these changes appear to have evolved to ensure that the plasma T 3 level is maintained and also to provide the brain with a degree of protection from hypothyroxinaemia.

Iodination of irrigation water as a method of supplying iodine to a severely iodine-deficient population in XinJiang, China
It is concluded that iodination of irrigation water is an advantageous and cost-effective method of supplying iodine in southern Xinjiang, and may be useful in other areas dependent on irrigation. Expand

Iodine deficiency constitutes one of the most common preventable causes of mental deficiency in the world today and most of the affected populations live in mountainous areas in preindustrialized countries, but 50 to 100 million people are still at risk in Europe. Expand
Steady state organ distribution and metabolism of thyroxine and 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine in intestines, liver, kidneys, blood, and residual carcass of the rat in vivo.
The relative distribution and steady state pool sizes of T4 and T3 in blood and extrathyroidal tissues of the whole euthyroid male rat, plus several steady state T3 and T4 metabolism indices in the whole animal, are measured in eight rats infused for 7 days with labeled 125I-T3 (T3*) or 125I (T4*) via implanted minipumps.
