Antioxidants (Basel) 2019 Apr 16;8(4). Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Clínica CIROM, Centro de Implantología and Rehabilitación Oral Multidisciplinaria, 30001 Murcia, Spain.

The toxicity of heavy metals such as Hg is a serious risk for human health. We evaluated whether 90 days of nutritional supplementation (d90, = 16) with (CV) and extracts in conjunction with aminosulphurate (nutraceuticals) supplementation could detox heavy metal levels in patients with long-term titanium dental implants (average: three, average: 12 years in mouth) and/or amalgam fillings (average: four, average: 15 years) compared to baseline levels (d0: before any supplementation, = 16) and untreated controls (without dental materials) of similar age (control, = 21). In this study, we compared levels of several heavy metals/oligoelements in these patients after 90 days ( = 16) of nutritional supplementation with CV and aminozuphrates extract with their own baseline levels (d0, = 16) and untreated controls ( = 21); 16 patients averaging 44 age years old with long-term dental amalgams and titanium implants for at least 10 years (average: 12 years) were recruited, as well as 21 non-supplemented controls (without dental materials) of similar age.

A comparison of lithium-substituted phosphate and borate bioactive glasses for mineralised tissue repair.

Dent Mater 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Centre for Craniofacial and Regenerative Biology, King's College London, London SE1 9RT, UK. Electronic address:

Objectives: Wnt/β-catenin signalling plays important roles in regeneration, particularly in hard tissues such as bone and teeth, and can be regulated by small molecule antagonists of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3); however, small molecules can be difficult to deliver clinically. Lithium (Li) is also a GSK3 antagonist and can be incorporated into bioactive glasses (BG), which can be used clinically in dental and bone repair applications and tuned to quickly release their constituent ions.

Methods: Here, we created phosphate (P)- and borate (B)-based BG that also contained Li (LiPBG and LiBBG) and examined their ion release kinetics and the toxicity of their dissolution ions on mouse 17IA4 dental pulp cells. Read More

[Analysis of risk factors, etiology and treatment standard of lithium poisoning].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus, Technische Universität Dresden, Fetscherstr. 74, 01307, Dresden, Deutschland.

Despite unlimited access to therapeutic drug monitoring lithium poisoning is still a common and potentially life-threatening but in most cases preventable complication of lithium treatment; however, it is still considered to be the gold standard in the treatment of affective disorders. The necessity of drug monitoring and potential lithium toxicity substantiate the skepticism of many therapists with respect to this often very effective treatment. This therefore limits the use of lithium although the unique therapeutic effects and high efficiency are well known. Read More

Enhanced Lithium Transport by Control of Crystal Orientation in Spinel LiMnO Thin Film Cathodes.

ACS Appl Energy Mater 2018 Dec 19;1(12):7046-7051. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Twente, 7500 AE, Enschede, Netherlands.

A promising cathode material for rechargeable batteries is LiMnO, which exhibits higher operating voltage, reduced toxicity and lower costs as compared to commonly used LiCoO cathodes. However, LiMnO suffers from limited cycle life, as excessive capacity fading occurs during battery cycling due to dissolution of Mn into the acidic electrolyte. Here, we show that by structural engineering of stable, epitaxial LiMnO thin films the electrochemical properties can be enhanced as compared to polycrystalline samples. Read More

Helmholtz Institute Münster - Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (IEK 12), Corrensstrasse 46, 48149 Münster, D-48149, Münster, Germany.

The continuously increasing number and size of lithium-based batteries developed for large-scale applications raise serious environmental concerns. Herein, we address the issues related to electrolyte toxicity and safety by proposing a "water-in-ionomer" type of electrolyte which replaces organic solvents by water and expensive and toxic fluorinated lithium salts by a non-fluorinated, inexpensive and non-toxic superabsorbing ionomer, lithium polyacrylate. Interestingly, the electrochemical stability window of this electrolyte is extended greatly, even for high water contents. Read More

Differential expression of synaptic vesicle protein 2A after status epilepticus and during epilepsy in a lithium-pilocarpine model.

Epilepsy Behav 2018 11 15;88:283-294. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Instituto Nacional de Pediatría, Subdirección de Medicina experimental, Laboratorio de Neurociencias, México. Electronic address:

Synaptic vesicle protein 2A (SV2A) has become an attractive target of investigation because of its role in the pathophysiology of epilepsy; SV2A is expressed ubiquitously throughout the brain in all nerve terminals independently of their neurotransmitter content and plays an important but poorly defined role in neurotransmission. Previous studies have shown that modifications in the SV2A protein expression could be a direct consequence of disease severity. Furthermore, these SV2A modifications may depend on specific changes in the nerve tissue following the induction of epilepsy and might be present in both excitatory and inhibitory terminals.

C. elegans Development and Activity Test detects mammalian developmental neurotoxins.

Food Chem Toxicol 2018 Nov 25;121:583-592. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Division of Toxicology, Office of Applied Research and Safety Assessment, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U.S.FDA, USA.

Due to the high cost and long duration of traditional testing methods for developmental neurotoxicity (DNT), only a small fraction of chemicals that humans are exposed to have been assessed for DNT activity. In order to ensure public safety, human-predictive methods for DNT detection that are faster and less resource intensive are urgently required. Using Caenorhabditis elegans, a novel worm Development and Activity test (wDAT) has been designed that uses a relatively inexpensive small-animal activity tracker and takes less than 4 days to complete.

Background: Dilated cardiomyopathy is a frequent disease responsible for 40-50% of cases of heart failure. Idiopathic cardiomyopathy is a primary disorder often related to familial/genetic predisposition. Before the diagnosis of idiopathic cardiomyopathy is made, clinicians must not only rule out viral and immune causes, but also toxic causes such as drugs, environmental agents, illicit substances and natural toxins.

Advances in Cathode Materials for High-Performance Lithium-Sulfur Batteries.

iScience 2018 Aug 26;6:151-198. Epub 2018 Jul 26.

Key Laboratory of Automobile Materials, Ministry of Education, College of Materials Science and Engineering, Jilin University, Changchun 130022, China. Electronic address:

Lithium-sulfur batteries (LSBs) represent a promising energy storage technology, and they show potential for next-generation high-energy systems due to their high specific capacity, abundant constitutive resources, non-toxicity, low cost, and environment friendliness. Unlike their ubiquitous lithium-ion battery counterparts, the application of LSBs is challenged by several obstacles, including short cycling life, limited sulfur loading, and severe shuttling effect of polysulfides. To make LSBs a viable technology, it is very important to design and synthesize outstanding cathode materials with novel structures and properties. Read More

Molecular Mechanisms of Lithium Action: Switching the Light on Multiple Targets for Dementia Using Animal Models.

Front Mol Neurosci 2018 28;11:297. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Sussex Neuroscience, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom.

Lithium has long been used for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, due to its robust beneficial effect as a mood stabilizing drug. Lithium's effectiveness for improving neurological function is therefore well-described, stimulating the investigation of its potential use in several neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer's (AD), Parkinson's (PD) and Huntington's (HD) diseases. A narrow therapeutic window for these effects, however, has led to concerted efforts to understand the molecular mechanisms of lithium action in the brain, in order to develop more selective treatments that harness its neuroprotective potential whilst limiting contraindications.

Cell transplantation based therapy is a promising strategy for treating intractable epilepsies. Inhibition of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) or substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr) is a powerful experimental approach for remote control of different partial seizure types, when targeting the seizure focus is not amenable. Here, we tested the hypothesis that grafting of embryonic/fetal neural precursor cells (NPCs) from various species (rat, human, pig) into STN or SNr of adult rats induces anticonvulsant effects.
