In the research, the content of bioelements (Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, and Cu) in the hair of individuals who reside in similar environmental conditions was spectrometrically determined with the use of AES-ICP spectrophotometer. The relation to their tobacco-smoking habit, age, and sex was established. It was observed that the results obtained were in the range of the content identified for the Polish population. Tobacco smokers had a decreased content of all the bioelements in question, compared to non… Expand
Aluminium, Cadmium and Lead Concentration in the Hair of Tobacco Smokers
TLDR
It has been observed that, in the group of elderly people over 50 years old, there was an increase in the content of aluminium, cadmium and lead both in smokers and non-smokers, irrespective of their sex. Expand

TLDR
The conducted research analyses and the use of advanced statistical techniques confirm the benefits of using alternative material to distinguish the patients with head and neck cancers from the healthy individuals. Expand
Mineral content of calcium and magnesium in the serum and longitudinal periodontal progression in Japanese elderly smokers.
TLDR
A low serum Ca/Mg ratio was significantly associated with periodontal disease progression in Japanese elderly smokers and there was no significant dose-response relationship among non-smokers. Expand
Use of Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy and Multivariate Analysis for the Determination of Trace Elements in Human Scalp
The analysis of trace elements in human hair for use as biomarkers continues to generate considerable interest in environmental and bioanalytical studies, medical diagnostics, and forensic science.Expand
Hair zinc levels in pet and feral cats (felis catus)
TLDR
Considering the living conditions of the animals, the highest zinc content was noted in the group of animals living in the wild (feral ones), and the mean values did not differ from mean values of the zinc content in the coat and hair of other mammals. Expand

The influence of color, age, and sex on the content of zinc, copper, nickel, manganese, and lead in human hair
TLDR
In female hair the content of metals was higher than in male hair independently of color, and age seems to have a different influence, with the copper element decreasing appreciably in brown and blond female hair as the age of the subjects increased. Expand

TLDR
The strongest relations between metals in the hair are as follows: Fe-Mn, Cr-K and Cd-Pb in the first cluster and Zn-Ni in the second cluster, which can be useful to explain relationships among the metals in man. Expand
Relationship of lead and cadmium to essential elements in hair, teeth, and nails of environmentally exposed people.
TLDR
The investigation revealed that among the media investigated, Pb concentration in hair is an environmental marker of exposure to this metal in the human organism and depends on sex and age and it was observed that an increase in Pb concentrations in hair causes a decrease in Fe and Ca concentrations and changes the ratios of essential metals. Expand
The effect of age, sex, smoking habit and hair color on the composition of hair.
TLDR
It was found that the composition of hair varied with age, sex, hair color and smoking habits, and reference values for the level of the remaining elements should be normalized according to age,sex, smoking habit and hair color to make hair analysis more reliable. Expand
[Iron, zinc and copper status in the elderly living in Warsaw district determined by hair analysis].
TLDR
It has been found that subject who had not excluded any food products from their diets had higher hair iron contents than those with some dietetic restrictions, and a trend that female hair contained less iron and more zinc than male hair is revealed. Expand
Contents of bioelements and toxic metals in the Polish population determined by hair analysis. Part III. Adults aged 20 to 40 years.
TLDR
It is established that women's hair Ca, Mg, Zn and hair Cu concentrations are higher than they are in men, and adults in whose hair bioelements and hair toxic metals concentrations have shown values outlying from reference and who have too many toxic elements and too fewBioelements should undergo further diagnostic tests.

Iron, copper, zinc and lead in hair from Sudanese populations of different age groups.
TLDR
Energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence was used for the analysis of hair samples from three different age groups of the Sudanese population to investigate the variations of the Fe, Cu, Zn and Pb content of hair with age. Expand
Cadmium, copper, lead, and zinc concentrations in human scalp and pubic hair.
TLDR
It is concluded that hair metal analysis in samples close to the scalp is not seriously invalidated by sources of external contamination. Expand
Age dependence of metals in hair in a selected U.S. population.
TLDR
Hair samples show evidence that there is an age-dependent excretion in hair of alkali metals during skeletal growth and development, and levels of aluminum show a decrease with age. Expand
