At the end of the winter circulating concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) in Asian and Mediterranen immigrants in northwestern European countries are usually very low. This may lead to vitamin D deficiency and eventually to rickets. Children are more prone to develop vitamin D deficiency. The vitamin D status of 8-year-old Turkish,...

In the period 1st September 1974 to 1st Januari 1989 2,511,000 infants (99.3 of all livebirths) were screened for PKU. Treatment was required in 158 of the 330 referred infants. The diagnosis of these 158 patients was PKU (137), hyperphenylalaninaemia (HPA) (19) and malignant HPA (2). Three cases had a false-negative screening result. The...

In a case-control study in The Netherlands, we observed a significantly lower consumption of fermented milk products (predominantly yogurt and buttermilk) among 133 incident breast cancer cases as compared to 289 population controls (mean ± SD among users only, 116 ± 100 versus 157 ± 144 g/day; P<0.01). The age-adjusted odds ratio of daily...

Limited resources for health care and increasing health care costs have led to proposals to expand home care services. Presently, home care technology is rather primitive. Its development and use have been largely unplanned. Nonetheless, home care technology is growing in response to obvious needs, and a number of experiments in the Netherlands...

Two hundred and three patients with venous thrombophilia were investigated in order to find out whether an elevated plasma concentration of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) could be a cause of their tendency to thrombosis. The patients were studied in an asymptomatic period about 3 months after their last thromboembolic episode. PAI...

In this paper concentration levels of various classes of organic chemicals in The Netherlands are reported for the base year 1980. From these levels the average intake of the Dutch population by inhalation was calculated to be ~1.5 g year-1. This gives reason for concern because many of the compounds either seem to exhibit carcinogenic...

Short-term tests designed to detect possible carcinogenicity have been extensively refined during the last years. Presently, many more or less simple and convenient systems are available to detect mutations, chromosome effects, DNA damage, and malignant transformation. Although their relevance to carcinogenicity is often reasonably good,...
