A study was undertaken to determine the concentration of selenium in whole blood, erythrocytes and plasma in samples obtained from three groups (each group consisting of one male and one female subject) given as a supplement a commercial product containing the element, together with vitamins A, C and E. Blood samples were obtained on one-day-a-week basis from each group, over a period of 75 days, both in the morning and in the afternoon, as part of a gastric function investigation, in which the…

Low Se status is likely to contribute to morbidity and mortality due to infectious as well as chronic diseases, and increasing Se intakes in all parts of the world can be expected to reduce cancer rates.
A study using neutron activation analysis of the short-term changes in the selenium content of blood components in human following supplementation with low doses of selenium
A study was undertaken to evaluate the short-term changes in the concentration of selenium in whole blood, plasma and erythrocytes following supplementation with low doses of four different selenium

Trace nutrients. Selenium in British food
The total intake, and the amounts of Se in major foods, were lower than in most other studies, probably the result of the comparatively low levels of this element in British soil.
On supplementing the selenium intake of New Zealanders
Daily urinary excretion increased with all forms of supplement, with initially a greater proportion of absorbed selenite-Se being excreted than Semet-Se or fish-Se, and a close relationship was found between plasma Se and 24 h urinary excrete.
Manifestations of chronic selenium deficiency in a child receiving total parenteral nutrition.
Serum enzyme activities markedly improved and the fingernail bed abnormalities resolved after therapy, and cardiological evaluation revealed no evidence of cardiac muscle cell damage despite markedly elevated serum activities of the MB isoenzyme of creatine kinase.
Blood Selenium and Glutathione Peroxidase Levels and Dietary Selenium of Free-Living and Institutionalized Elderly Subjects 1
The dietary Selenium levels and blood selenium and GSH-Px levels were above the levels found in populations proposed to be at risk forSelenium deficiency, and these elderly appear to have adequate seenium status.
Reversal of biochemical and functional abnormalities in erythrocytes secondary to selenium deficiency.
A patient with multiple enterocutaneous fistulae on total parenteral nutrition for 14 months developed low erythrocyte selenium and low ERYthrocytes glutathione peroxidase and hexose monophosphate shunt activity can be corrected with Selenium supplementation.
Cyclic activation analysis—A review
The setting of cyclic activation and its development in a historical context is attempted and a case is made for the usefulness of the method in the analysis of materials via short-lived isotopes.
Neutron activation analysis for clinical trace element research
Two-volume reference work provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on neutron activation analysis for the study of elements at the ultra-trace level. Emphasized throughout both volumes is the
