The susceptibility of developing immune system to chemical disruption warrants the assessment of immune parameters in reproductive and developmental testing protocols. In this study, a wide range of immune endpoints was included in an extended one-generation reproduction toxicity study (EOGRTS) design to determine the relative sensitivity of...

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus Type 2 could be significantly reduced by early identification of subjects at risk, allowing for better prevention and earlier treatment. Glucose intolerance (GI) is a hallmark of the prediabetic stage. This study aims at identifying 1) prognostic biomarkers predicting the risk of developing GI later in life...

Background: The development of global tests for the fibrinolytic capacity in blood is hampered by the low base-line fibrinolytic activity in blood, by the involvement of both plasmatic components and blood cells in the fibrinolytic system and by the loss of fibrinolytic activity as a result of the action of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI...

Background: Red blood cells (RBCs) represent a storage pool for folate. In contrast to plasma, RBC folate can appear in different biochemical isoforms. So far, only the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677 TT genotype has been identified as a determinant of RBC folate vitamer distribution. Objective: The purpose of this study is to...

Background: Application of transcriptomics technology in human nutrition intervention studies would allow for genome-wide screening of the effects of specific diets or nutrients and result in biomarker profiles. Objective: The aim was to evaluate the potential of gene expression profiling in blood cells collected in a human intervention study...

The oral toxicity of recombinant human lactoferrin (rhLF) produced in the milk of transgenic cows was investigated in Wistar rats by daily administration via oral gavage for 13 consecutive weeks, 7 days per week. The study used four groups of 20 rats/sex/dose. The control group received physiological saline and the three test groups received...

Pericellular proteases play an important role in angiogenesis and vasculogenesis. They comprise (membrane-type) matrix metalloproteinases [(MT-)MMPs], serine proteases, cysteine cathepsins, and membrane-bound aminopeptidases. Specific inhibitors regulate them. Major roles in initiating angiogenesis have been attributed to MT1-matrix...

Benzene is an industrial chemical, component of automobile exhaust and cigarette smoke. After hepatic bioactivation benzene induces bone marrow, blood and hepatic toxicity. Using a toxicogenomics approach this study analysed the effects of benzene at three dose levels on gene expression in the liver after 28 daily doses. NMR based metabolomics...

Objective-The beneficial effect of dietary fish oil, rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), on cardiovascular disease is multifactorial and may partly rely on their anticoagulant action. We studied how fish oil intake influenced thrombin generation in plasma and which factors were involved herein. Methods and Results-Twenty-five...

To compare the possible effects of microwave and conventional cooking on a range of common dietary components, mixed human diets containing beef, potatoes and vegetables were fed to groups of 10 male and 10 female Wistar rats for 13 wk. The diet ingredients were cooked by either of the methods in a normal and an abused manner, the latter...

Ultrasound images from human arteries obtained in vivo with an intravascular 30 MHz ultrasound imaging device show that blood echogenicity changes during the cardiac cycle. Quantitative measurements of blood echogenicity during the cardiac cycle suggest that these variations may be related to changes in the state of erythrocyte aggregation,...

During chemotherapy with a cisplatin-containing combination of drugs, 217 blood samples from 30 cancer patients were analyzed for the presence of the main cisplatin-DNA adduct cis-Pt(NH3)2d(pGpG) (Pt-GG). Cisplatin was administered during 3-h infusions on each of 5 consecutive days, resulting in increasing adduct levels which, on the average,...

Binding of glucagon to and its degradation by human mononuclear leukocytes and erythrocytes was investigated. Labeled glucagon binds to these cells, but can be displaced only by unlabeled glucagon at pharmacologically high concentrations. It is concluded that glucagon binding to human blood cells does not represent receptors of physiological...

Results of three different regimens of extracorporeal irradiation of the blood (ECIB) are compared (1 X 20,2 X 10, and 4 X 5hr) in a rat model for human acute myelocytic leukemia. The D0 for X rays of leukemic cells in the blood was 68 cGy. The transit dose varied from 380 to 660 cGy. Evaluation was performed by follow-up of the number of...

Yeast grown on hydrocarbons according to the gas-oil process was fed to rats at dietary levels of 10, 20 or 30% for 1 yr. Two control diets were used, one being similar to the yeast diets but containing soyabean-oil meal instead of yeast and the other being the institute's stock diet. The yeast diets had no effect on mortality, general condition...

The ChE- and AE- activities and the 32P-concentration of the plasma from rats 1 and 24 hr after s.c. injection of 32P-sarin (200 μg kg) were measured. One hr after the injection the ChE was inhibited to approx. 10 per cent and the AE to 40-50 per cent; 23 hr later 50 per cent of the ChE activity was found to be restored and the AE had recovered...
