Role of SIRT1 in Potentially Toxic Trace Elements (Lead, Fluoride, Aluminum and Cadmium) Associated Neurodevelopmental Toxicity
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Feb 28. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04116-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe formation of the central nervous system is a meticulously planned and intricate process. Any modification to this process has the potential to disrupt the structure and operation of the brain, which could result in deficiencies in neurological growth. When neurotoxic substances are present during the early stages of development, they can be exceptionally dangerous. Prenatally, the immature brain is extremely vulnerable and is therefore at high risk in pregnant women associated with occupational exposures. Lead, fluoride, al...

Association of Zinc Intake, Tobacco Smoke Exposure, With Metabolic Syndrome: Evidence from NHANES 2007-2018
The objective was to explore the effect modification of zinc (Zn) intake levels on the relationship of tobacco smoke exposure and risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in children and adolescents. We used data from 2007-2018 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (N = 3701). MetS was considered as main endpoint. Weighted multivariable logistic regression models showed that high cotinine level (≥ 0.05 ng/mL) was associated with increased odds of MetS [odds ratio = 1.54, 95% confidence interval: 1.01, 2.36], and the association between Zn intake levels and MetS did not demonstrate statistical significance. Importantl...

Association Between Dietary Antioxidant Quality Score (DAQS) and All-Cause Mortality in Hypertensive Adults: A Retrospective Cohort Study from the NHANES Database
This study aimed to explore the association between the dietary antioxidant quality scores (DAQS) and all-cause mortality in hypertensive adults. In this retrospective cohort study, participants aged ≥ 18 years with hypertension were extracted from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NAHNES) 2007-2018. Outcome was all-cause mortality of hypertensive participants. DAQS was the exposure variable calculated based on the intake of vitamin A, C, E, zinc, selenium, and magnesium. The weighted univariable and multivariable COX proportional hazards regression models were utilized to explore the association betw...

Cyto and Genoprotective Potential of Tannic Acid Against Cadmium and Nickel Co-exposure Induced Hepato-Renal Toxicity in BALB/c Mice
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Feb 23. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04117-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTannic acid (TA) is a metal chelating polyphenol that plays a crucial role in metal detoxification, but its modulatory role in co-exposure of these heavy metals' exposure needs to be explored. Cadmium (Cd) and nickel (Ni) are inorganic hazardous chemicals in the environment. Humans are prone to be exposed to the co-exposure of Cd and Ni, but the toxicological interactions of these metals are poorly defined. Present study was undertaken to study the preventive role of TA in Cd-Ni co-exposure-evoked hepato-renal toxicity in BALB/...
