  • "The Terror of Death Began To Stalk Him": The Mysterious Fistula of Charles the Wise. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32535.Turner MD
  • For 23 years, Charles V "The Wise" of France suffered from a mysterious fistula on his left arm that continuously drained pus. For all this time, he believed that as soon as the fistula ceased to weep, he would have a mere 15 days before death followed. His death in 1380, at the young age of 42, seemingly proved this assumption correct. This paper explores the possible explanations from arsenic p…
  • Investigation and monitoring of heavy metal poisoning. [Review]
    J Clin Pathol. 2023 Feb; 76(2):82-97.Barlow NL, Bradberry SM
  • Historically, heavy metal measurement and interpretation has been a highly specialised area performed only in a handful of centres within the UK. However, recent years have seen a move to more local testing due to the repatriation of referred work into pathology networks and the increased availability of inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry technology. While management of significant pois…
  • Arsenic-induced toxicity and the ameliorative role of antioxidants and natural compounds. [Review]
    J Biochem Mol Toxicol. 2022 Dec 22 [Online ahead of print]Shiek SS, Sajai ST, Dsouza HS
  • Arsenic (As) poisoning has proven to be a major threat worldwide because of its toxic effects on the human body. As toxicity through drinking water is a global health concern. The toxicity of As is known to affect the liver, kidney, lungs, muscles, cardiovascular system, and nervous system and can even induce diabetes. Further As can cause skin lesions leading to notable diseases in the skin like…
  • Thallium poisoning: a case report. [Case Reports]
    J Yeungnam Med Sci. 2022 Dec 15 [Online ahead of print]Jimenez O, Cáceres H, … Rueda JAA
  • Thallium poisoning is usually accidental. We present a case of a 51-year-old woman who was evaluated in June 2018 for myalgia, vertigo, asthenia, and abdominal pain. Physical examination revealed temporal-spatial disorientation, jaundice, and asterixis. The laboratory reported the following: bilirubin, 10.3 mg/dL; aspartate transaminase, 78 U/L; alanine transaminase, 194 U/L; albumin, 2.3 g/dL; p…
  • Mulberry leaves juice attenuates arsenic-induced neurobehavioral and hepatic disorders in mice. [Journal Article]
    Food Sci Nutr. 2022 Dec; 10(12):4360-4370.Islam Z, Islam J, … Saud ZA
  • Arsenic (As) poisoning has caused an environmental catastrophe in Bangladesh as millions of people are exposed to As-contaminated drinking water. Chronic As-exposure causes depression, memory impairment, and liver injury in experimental animals. This study was carried out to assess the protective effect of mulberry leaves juice (Mul) against As-induced neurobehavioral and hepatic dysfunctions in …
  • StatPearls: Rodenticide Toxicity [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)IsacksonBobbisueBWyckoff Hospital Medical CenterIrizarryLisandroLBOOK
  • Rodenticides or “rat poisons” are mixed compounds used to eradicate rodents. They are one of the most toxic agents commonly found in households. Historically, heavy metals such as arsenic were the first agents used to control rodent populations, but the most common rodenticide used in the twenty-first century is anticoagulants.[1] When a clinician suspects rodenticide poisoning, every effort shou…
  • Effects of Ozone Therapy on Chronic Arsenic Poisoning in Rats. [Journal Article]
    Biol Trace Elem Res. 2022 Nov 28 [Online ahead of print]Büyük B, Aydeğer C, … Eroğlu HA
  • Arsenic (As) is a toxic metalloid that affects many organs through drinking water. This study aims to examine the efficacy of ozone therapy on chronic arsenic toxicity. Twenty-four male Wistar albino rats were housed in individual cages and grouped as control, As, O3, and As + O3. As was applied by adding 5 mg/kg/day in drinking water for 60 days. Ozone therapy was applied at 0.5 mg/kg/day (i.p.)…
  • [Advances in On-site Analytical Methods for Inorganic Arsenic in Environmental Water]. [Review]
    Huan Jing Ke Xue. 2022 Nov 08; 43(11):4845-4857.Bo GY, Chen ZY, … Ma J
  • Arsenic is a ubiquitous metalloid element in the environment. Arsenic is classified as a group A carcinogen and has caused serious impacts on human health. For example, chronic poisoning caused by arsenic in groundwater is a global health problem. The forms of arsenic in environmental water are diverse, which can easily be transformed into each other during the sampling process and transportation…
  • Genome-wide DNA methylation pattern in whole blood of patients with coal-burning arsenic poisoning. [Journal Article]
    Ecotoxicol Environ Saf. 2022 Dec 15; 248:114323.Wei S, Wang W, … Zhang A
  • Exposure to coal-burning arsenic leads to an increased risk of cancer, multi-systems damage and chronic diseases, with DNA methylation one potential mechanism of arsenic toxicity. There are few studies on genome-wide methylation in the coal-burning arsenic poisoning population. Illumina 850 K methylation beadchip is the most suitable technology for DNA methylation of epigenome-wide association an…
  • Investigating the synergistic role of heavy metals in Arsenic-induced skin lesions in West Bengal, India. [Journal Article]
    J Trace Elem Med Biol. 2023 Jan; 75:127103.Banerjee S, Dhar S, … Bhattacharjee P
  • CONCLUSIONS: It can be confirmed that the population from Murshidabad is exposed to As and other heavy metals through drinking water as well as food. Particularly for this population, Fe, Zn and rubidium (Rb) may play a synergistic role in arsenic-induced toxicity. However, further studies on the large population-based investigation are required to establish the chemistry of the metal toxicity.
  • Arsenic Analysis in the Petroleum Industry: A Review. [Review]
    ACS Omega. 2022 Nov 01; 7(43):38150-38157.Mere A, Enrico M, … Bouyssiere B
  • The presence of arsenic in natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons is of great concern for oil companies. In addition to health risks due to its toxicity as well as environmental issues, arsenic is responsible for irreversible poisoning of catalysts and clogging of pipes via the accumulation of As-containing precipitates. To address these problems and to better design treatment units, robust methods …
  • Study on the Mechanism of Arsenic-Induced Lung Injury Based on SWATH Proteomics Technology. [Journal Article]
    Biol Trace Elem Res. 2022 Nov 05 [Online ahead of print]Wang Y, Zhang J, … Shen L
  • Chronic arsenic poisoning is a global health problem that affects millions of people, and studies have found that long-term ingestion of arsenic-containing compounds can lead to lung damage, but the exact mechanism is unknown. In this study, Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were used as the research object, and the proteomic analysis method based on sequential window acquisition of all theoretical fragme…
  • A comprehensive review of the heavy metal issues regarding commercial vanadium‑titanium-based SCR catalyst. [Review]
