The knowledge about cesium metabolism and toxicity is sparse. Oral intake of cesium chloride has been widely promoted on the basis of the hypothesis referred to as “high pH cancer therapy”, a complimentary alternative medicine method for cancer treatment. However, no properly confirmed tumor regression was reported so far in all probability because of neither theoretical nor experimental grounds for this proposal. The aim of the present review was to resume and discuss the material currently… Expand
Reduction of radiocesium load: supplementation of Cs versus its depletion by enterosorbents.
TLDR
It is recommended to researchers studying pectin-containing enterosorbents, to verify a hypothesis, according to which Cs supplementation might be more efficient for the purpose of radiocesium washout from the organism than its depletion byEnterosorbent, that an organism saturated with stable Cs would discharge it together with previously accumulated 137Cs.

In vivo and in vitro liver cancer metabolism observed with hyperpolarized [5-(13)C]glutamine.
TLDR
A new and improved preparation of hyperpolarized [5-(13)C]glutamine is reported, which provides a highly sensitive ( 13)C MR marker, which was investigated in vivo in a rat liver tumour and was used to measure response to drug treatment in vitro in cancer cells. Expand
Cesium Treatment Depresses Glycolysis Pathway in HeLa Cell.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Cesium (Cs) is an alkali metal element that is of no essential use for humans; it has no known beneficial function that is verified by clinical research. When used as an alternativeExpand
Cesium-associated hypokalemia successfully treated with amiloride
TLDR
Urinary potassium wasting responsive to amiloride therapy in a cancer patient with CAH is reported, and possible mechanisms of cesium-associated hypokalemia are discussed. Expand
Evaluation of Plasma Trace Elements in Different Stages of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
Investigation of trace element levels in plasma of patients and not-patients found thallium and iron were inversely associated with insulin levels, while cesium showed a statistically significant positive association with the severity of the disease. Expand
Dendropanax morbifera Léveille extract ameliorates cesium-induced inflammation in the kidney and decreases antioxidant enzyme levels in the hippocampus
BackgroundsIn this study, we investigated the effects of Dendropanax morbifera Léveille leaf extract (DML) on cesium-exposed kidneys and hippocampi of rats.MethodsSeven-week-old Sprague-Dawley ratsExpand
Imaging pH with hyperpolarized 13C
TLDR
This review explores the advantages and disadvantages of current pH imaging techniques and how they compare with DNP‐based approaches for the measurement and imaging of pH with hyperpolarized 13C. Expand
Imaging of pH in vivo using hyperpolarized 13C-labelled zymonic acid
TLDR
It is suggested that ZA represents a reliable and non-invasive extracellular imaging sensor to localize and quantify pH, with the potential to improve understanding, diagnosis and therapy of diseases characterized by aberrant acid-base balance. Expand
Maternal exposure to alkali, alkali earth, transition and other metals: Concentrations and predictors of exposure.
TLDR
Most metals concentrations were low and below the analytical limit of detection with some high concentrations observed, but further study is required to establish the source of metals exposures at the high end of the ranges of concentrations measured and the potential for any adverse health impacts in children. Expand
Content of essential and toxic trace elements in organs of obese Wistar and Zucker leprfa rats receiving quercetin.
TLDR
There were significant differences in the mineral content of organs between the Wistar and Z rats, with different propensities for obesity, and when introduced into the diets, quercetin affected the content of essential and toxic elements, but with ambiguous physiological significance. Expand

Blood and tissue concentration of cesium after exposure to cesium chloride
TLDR
The high accumulation in the liver suggests that hepatotoxicity from Cs might be an initial presenting symptom in Cs-poisoning cases, as well as suggesting exposure to an alternative medical treatment. Expand
Cesium chloride: preventive medicine for radioactive cesium exposure?
TLDR
It is probable that large cesium doses can protect against radiation toxicity by blocking sites on red blood cells and thereby result in increased excretion and clearance of the radioactive forms of cesary, and should be easily testable in laboratory animals. Expand
Cesium Toxicity: A Case of Self-Treatment by Alternate Therapy Gone Awry
TLDR
The authors describe a case of cesium toxicity manifested by syncope, polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, hypokalemia, and a QT interval prolonged to 650 milliseconds that resolved over 4 days following withdrawal of cedium. Expand

TLDR
Studies of the food intake in areas where the incidences of cancer are very low showed that it met the requirements for the high pH therapy, and on mice fed cesium and rubidium showed marked shrinkage in the tumor masses within 2 weeks. Expand
