Exploring the Complex Interplay of Trace Elements and Their Association with the Risk of Development of Pre-eclampsia in Pregnancy: a Case-Control
This study examines the intricate relationship between trace elements (magnesium, copper, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, and iron) and the severity of pre-eclampsia. The study involves a total of 150 participants, categorized into three distinct groups: 50 individuals with mild pre-eclampsia, 50 with severe pre-eclampsia, and 50 healthy pregnant controls. Specifically, out of the 100 pre-eclampsia cases, 5 were identified as early-onset and 95 as late-onset. Participants were recruited from a tertiary care hospital based on stringent inclusion and exclusion criteria. All the trace elements were quantitatively measured by direc...

Selenium Deficiency Can Promote the Expression of VEGF and Inflammatory Factors in Cartilage Differentiation and Mediates Cartilage Injury
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Dec 30. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-04003-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSelenium plays a crucial role as a micronutrient, primarily exerting its biological functions through selenoproteins. It has been established that selenium deficiency adversely impacts cartilage development, leading to alterations in chondrocyte function. In regions with low selenium intake, endemic osteochondrosis has been documented, characterized by compromised growth plate and articular cartilage formation. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) stands out as a pivotal angiogenic factor, with elevated levels contributing...

Sex-Specific Associations of Five Serum Essential Metal Elements with Thyroid Nodules in Euthyroid Adults: a Cross ‑sectional Study
In conclusion, our study suggests that gender is an important factor when studying the association between serum metals and thyroid nodules. The imbalance of selected metal elements (calcium, copper, zinc, and magnesium) may relate to thyroid nodules and their malignant tendency, and future prospective studies are needed to further confirm the associations.PMID:38157093 | DOI:10.1007/s12011-023-04024-0 (Source: Biological Trace Element Research)

Association Between the Serum Copper Levels and Environmental Tobacco Exposure on the Risk of Overweight and Obesity in Children: a Study Based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
This study was to assess the individual effects of serum copper levels and environmental tobacco exposure and their joint effects on the risk of overweight and obesity among children and adolescents of 6 to 19 year olds. We analyzed cross-sectional data from 1849 children and adolescents participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) collected between 2011 and 2016. Environmental tobacco exposure was determined by cotinine levels. The serum copper level was divided into < median group and ≥ median groups according to the median of 109.81 µg/dL. The outcome was overweight/obese in child...

Quercetin Supplementation Alleviates Cadmium Induced Genotoxicity-Mediated Apoptosis in Caprine Testicular Cells
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Dec 30. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-04038-8. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBeing a common environmental pollutant, cadmium causes detrimental health effects, including testicular injury. Herein, we document the ameliorative potential of quercetin, a potent antioxidant, against cadmium-induced geno-cytotoxicity and steroidogenic toxicity in goat testicular tissue. Cadmium induced different comet types (Type 0 - Type 4), indicating the varying degree of DNA-damage in testicular cells. The quantitative analysis at 50 and 100 µM cadmium concentration revealed the DNA damage with per cent tail DNA as 75.7...

Association between the Composite Dietary Antioxidant Index and Stroke: A cross-sectional Study
This study aimed to determine the association between CDAI and stroke. Utilizing data from the 2003-2018 NHANES dataset, CDAI was computed by summarizing the intake of six dietary antioxidants based on 24-hour dietary recall interviews. The relationship between CDAI and stroke was examined using multivariate logistic regression and restricted cubic spline analysis. This study ultimately included 39,432 participants, of whom 1,527 (3.87%) had a stroke. The multivariate logistic regression model 3 that fully adjusted all confounding variables showed a negative association between CDAI and stroke (OR = 0.97; 95% CI:0.95, 0.99...
