Mercury speciation in prenatal exposure in Slovenian and Croatian population - PHIME study.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental research [Environ Res] 2019 Oct; Vol. 177, pp. 108627. Date of Electronic Publication: 2019 Aug 05.

Abstract: In recent years, several studies have addressed the issue of prenatal exposure to methylmercury (MeHg); however, few have actually analysed MeHg blood concentrations. Our study population included mothers and their new-borns from Slovenia (central regi...

Results of the first national human biomonitoring in Slovenia: Trace elements in men and lactating women, predictors of exposure and reference values.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International journal of hygiene and environmental health [Int J Hyg Environ Health] 2019 Apr; Vol. 222 (3), pp. 563-582. Date of Electronic Publication: 2019 Mar 14.

Abstract: The first national human biomonitoring in Slovenia surveyed cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), arsenic (As), manganese (Mn), selenium (Se), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) in a childbearing population (18-49 years) selected from lactating primiparous wom...

Prenatal mercury exposure, neurodevelopment and apolipoprotein E genetic polymorphism.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental research [Environ Res] 2017 Jan; Vol. 152, pp. 375-385. Date of Electronic Publication: 2016 Sep 09.

Abstract: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between prenatal exposure to mercury (Hg) and neurodevelopment of the child, taking into account genetic polymorphism of apolipoprotein E (Apoe) and other relevant confounders. Six hundred an...

Low cadmium exposure in males and lactating females-estimation of biomarkers.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental research [Environ Res] 2017 Jan; Vol. 152, pp. 109-119. Date of Electronic Publication: 2016 Oct 20.

Abstract: Background: Urine cadmium (Cd) and renal function biomarkers, mostly analysed in urine spot samples, are well established biomarkers of occupational exposure. Their use and associations at low environmental level are common, but have recently been ques...

Exposure to mercury in susceptible population groups living in the former mercury mining town of Idrija, Slovenia.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental research [Environ Res] 2017 Jan; Vol. 152, pp. 434-445. Date of Electronic Publication: 2016 Jul 31.

Abstract: 500 years of mercury (Hg) mining in the town of Idrija has caused severe pollution in Idrija and its surroundings. Following the closure of the mine in 1995, the environment remains contaminated with Hg. Sources of elemental-, inorganic- and methyl Hg ...

Disease profile and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) using the EuroQol (EQ-5D + C) questionnaire for chronic metallic mercury vapor intoxication.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Health and quality of life outcomes [Health Qual Life Outcomes] 2015 Dec 09; Vol. 13, pp. 196. Date of Electronic Publication: 2015 Dec 09.

Abstract: Background: Toxic mercury is still being used today for example by workers mining gold, resulting in diverse health symptoms in users and individuals in proximity. A considerable burden of disease (BoD) can be assumed, while previous analyses were limi...

Scopoli's work in the field of mercurialism in light of today's knowledge: past and present perspectives.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American journal of industrial medicine [Am J Ind Med] 2010 May; Vol. 53 (5), pp. 535-47.

Authors:

Abstract: The Idrija Mercury Mine (1490-1994) appointed its first physician, Joannes Antonius Scopoli, in 1754. Most of his descriptions of mercurialism are still relevant today. This study highlights Scopoli's observations on the interaction between elemental m...

Glutathione level after long-term occupational elemental mercury exposure.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental research [Environ Res] 2008 May; Vol. 107 (1), pp. 115-23. Date of Electronic Publication: 2007 Aug 15.

Abstract: Many in vitro and in vivo studies have elucidated the interaction of inorganic mercury (Hg) and glutathione. However, human studies are limited. In this study, we investigated the potential effects of remote long-term intermittent occupational elementa...

Personality traits in miners with past occupational elemental mercury exposure.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental health perspectives [Environ Health Perspect] 2006 Feb; Vol. 114 (2), pp. 290-6.

Abstract: In this study, we evaluated the impact of long-term occupational exposure to elemental mercury vapor (Hg0) on the personality traits of ex-mercury miners. Study groups included 53 ex-miners previously exposed to Hg0 and 53 age-matched controls. Miners ...

Lymph node mapping and sentinel node detection in patients with cervical carcinoma: a 2-year experience.
