Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Gronostajowa 2, 30-387, Kraków, Poland.

Prescription food for special medical purposes (FSMPs) and modified milk products (MMPs) for babies in the infancy period available in pharmacies are increasingly frequently used for newborns and infants-especially in cases where allergies and food-borne diseases are diagnosed. However, there is a lack of scientific study around the safety assessment of the elemental impurities in these products. Importantly, the allergen Ni and the problematic metal Cr are little considered. Read More

The Role of Zinc in Poultry Breeder and Hen Nutrition: an Update.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Animal Nutrition and Regulation, College of Animal Science, South China Agricultural University, Guangzhou, China.

Zinc (Zn) is an essential trace mineral in breeder hen diets and functions in diverse physiological processes, including reproduction, immunity, antioxidant ability, and epigenetic processes. In this paper, five main aspects of Zn nutrition in poultry breeder birds and hens, including semen quality, molting, egg production and egg quality, hatchability and embryonic development, and offspring performance, are reviewed. Zn deficiency in poultry breeder birds led to lower semen quality (reducing around 10% sperm motility) and egg production (lowering 3-10 g/day/bird egg mass) as well as poor offspring development and growth performance (increasing 9-10% weak chick ratio and 10% mortality of progeny).

Trace element content in mane hair of 190 stallions and 94 mares (3-7 years old) bred in North Caucasus (Russia) was assessed using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Mane hair Co, Cr, Mn, Li, Si, and Sr levels in mares exceeded those in stallions by 77%, 63%, 64%, 42%, 39%, and 64%, respectively. Read More

Effects of Fungal Polysaccharide on Oxidative Damage and TLR4 Pathway to the Central Immune Organs in Cadmium Intoxication in Chickens.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

College of Veterinary Medicine, Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, 150030, China.

Cadmium (Cd) can cause animal organism damage, but there have been few studies on the damage of cadmium to the immune organs of birds. Most fungal polysaccharide has antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects. The experimental study investigated the effects of fungal polysaccharide (Agaricus blazei Murill polysaccharide and Ganoderma luciduccharide) on the oxidative damage of central immune organs (thymus and bursa of Fabricius) and on the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) pathway in cadmium-poisoned chickens.

Association Between Cortisol, Insulin Resistance and Zinc in Obesity: a Mini-Review.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Nutrition, Health Sciences Center, Federal University of Piauí, Teresina, Piauí, Brazil.

Adipose tissue is considered an endocrine organ and its excess compromises the immune response and the metabolism of hormones and nutrients. Furthermore, visceral fat accumulation contributes to increased cortisol synthesis, which in turn induces metallothionein and Zip14 expression, which are proteins that contribute to reducing plasma zinc levels. Zinc plays a critical role in the secretion and signaling of insulin. Read More

A Review of Iodine Status of Women of Reproductive Age in the USA.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Mar 7;188(1):208-220. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, College of Health Sciences, Texas Woman's University, P.O. Box 425888, Denton, TX, 76204-5876, USA.

Iodine, an essential micronutrient, is required to produce thyroid hormones. Iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) comprise a range of adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, with the most significant irreversible effect resulting from neurodevelopmental deficits in fetal brain caused by deficient iodine status during early pregnancy. The objective of this scoping review was to summarize the studies that assessed iodine status of women of reproductive age in the USA. Read More

Copper and Zinc Nutritional Issues for Agricultural Animal Production.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Mar 5;188(1):148-159. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Division of Animal Science, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA.

Livestock have presented unique requirements and toxicity issues depending on the species for the various concentrations of Cu and Zn and their interactions with other nutrients especially Fe, Se, Mo, and S. Soil concentrations of these elements and their availability to crops influence the health of the crop and the amount found in vegetative tissues and seeds. Hence, many livestock issues are a result of the soils in the area where production is occurring (Loneragan et al. Read More

Selenium Content and/or T-2 Toxin Contamination of Cereals, Soil, and Children's Hair in Some Areas of Heilongjiang and Gansu Provinces, China.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Center for Endemic Disease Control, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Harbin Medical University, 157 Baojian Road, Harbin, 150081, China.

It has been strongly suggested that selenium deficiency and T-2 contamination in cereals are responsible for the development of Kashin-Beck disease (KBD). In order to assess these risk factors of KBD in the internal and external environments, our team undertook a two-stage survey in some areas of Heilongjiang and Gansu Provinces, China. The selenium content in children's hair (293), cereal (192), and soil (46) samples were determined using the 2, 3-diamino-naphthalene fluorometric assay technique. Read More

Use of 2-Hydrazinobenzothiazole-Modified Copolymer(s) as Potential Chelating Agent for Sensitive and Selective Determination of Low Levels of Mercury in Seafood by Ultrasound-Assisted Cloud-Point Extraction Combined with Spectrophotometry.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Sciences, Cumhuriyet University, TR-58140, Sivas, Turkey.

In this study, a new method was developed for the pre-concentration of trace mercury from seafood samples prior to analysis by spectrophotometry. The method is based on the complexation between 2-hydrazinobenzothiazole (2-HBT)-modified copolymer(s) and Hg(II) in the presence of an ionic surfactant, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), as sensitivity enhancer at pH 4.5 and the extraction of the complex into the surfactant-rich phase of polyethylene glycol tert-octylphenyl ether (Triton X-114) as the extractant.

The effect of fluoride on osteoclasts is still controversial. In the past, researchers thought that the effects of fluoride on osteoclast and osteoblast formation occurred in a dose-dependent pattern. However, our previous in vitro study showed fluoride elicited a notably different effect on osteoclast formation. Read More

Laboratory of Experimental Medicine, Hospital Alemán, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Long-term lithium treatment was associated with chronic kidney disease and renal failure although the underlying pathogenic mechanisms are not certainty known. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in oxidative stress measures as well as renal functional and structural alterations associated with chronic use of lithium in rats. Forty Wistar male rats were randomized into four groups: control groups fed ad libitum powered standard diet for 1 and 3 months and experimental groups fed ad libitum the same diet supplemented with 60 mmol/kg diet for 1 and 3 months.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Division of Food Science, Kongju National University, Yesan, 32439, South Korea.

Previous studies have reported that silicon (Si) has a positive effect on bone health, immune response, and cognitive health. However, basic and important studies on evaluating dietary intake and urinary excretion of Si are limited. The aim of this study was to evaluate dietary Si intake and urinary excretion according to gender and age in healthy and free-living Korean adults and to investigate the relationship between them with gender.
