Many forms of selenium supplement are commercialized. The purpose of this work was to study the bioavailability of one selenium drug, "Granions de Sélénium", as compared with sodium selenite. Each product was labelled with enriched stable isotopes, and by means of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), the metabolism of the two forms was followed simultaneously. In a first study, the absorption of a single dose of 480 micrograms Se (Na-Selenite) containing 100 micrograms of 74Se was… Expand
A human model of selenium that integrates metabolism from selenite and selenomethionine.
Compared kinetics of absorbed Se from inorganic selenite (Sel) and organic selenomethionine (SeMet) in healthy participants, a compartmental model will be used to evaluate changes in Se metabolism following long-term Se supplementation. Expand
Use of Stable Isotopic Selenium As a Tracer to Follow Incorporation of Selenium into Selenoproteins
Stable isotopes of Se can be used for selenoprotein production in the same way as radioactive isotopes and, when physiological amounts of stable Se are ingested by humans, the isotope can be detected in blood-borne proteins separated by column chromatography and PAGE. Expand
Selenium absorption and retention from a selenite- or selenate-fortified milk-based formula in men measured by a stable-isotope technique.
Although Se absorption and urinary excretion differ for SeO3(2-) and SeO4(2-), both Se compounds are equally well retained when administered at a relatively low dose (40 microg Se), suggesting the nutritional impact of Se fortification of foods would thus be expected to be similar. Expand
The distribution of selenium in human plasma proteins for 24 hours after ingestion of 74Se (in sodium selenite form).
The distribution of selenium (Se) in human plasma proteins was studied by gel filtration chromatography and a maximum enrichment for peak A at 12 hours and for peak B at 4 hours was observed. Expand
Using stable isotopes and isotope ratio mass spectrometry to study mineral metabolism in humans: Invited lecture
Micronutrient deficiencies are enormous problems globally. Iron deficiency alone may affect 2 billion people, of whom at least 500 million are anaemic. Stable isotopes provide many methods to studyExpand
The importance of minerals in human nutrition: Bioavailability, food fortification, processing effects and nanoencapsulation
Abstract Background As minerals have diverse functionalities and potentials in the body's metabolism and homeostasis, deficiency of these bioactive constituents can result in an abundant incidence ofExpand
Stable heavy isotopes in human health
The elements reviewed in this paper encompass zinc, copper, iron, calcium, selenium and lead, and most research for the first five metals has addressed metabolic aspects, specifically fractional absorption (“bioavailability”). Expand
Determination of tellurium in urine by isotope dilution gas chromatography/mass spectrometry using (4-fluorophenyl)magnesium bromide as a derivatizing agent and a comparison with electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry.
A stable isotope dilution gas chromatography/mass spectrometry method using 120Te as an internal standard and (4-fluorophenyl)magnesium bromide as a derivatizing agent for Te determination in urine is developed. Expand
Gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method for the determination of selenium in biological samples.
The determination of selenium by capillary gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), using an enriched stable isotope 76Se as internal standard, will be very simple and accurate for routine analysis. Expand
Pharmaceutical forms containing trace elements for humans
Nutritional or therapeutical doses of trace elements are administered to humans though different forms including modified and fortified diets or medicinal-type preparations. The latter actually areExpand
