or "free" trace elements can also be found in small quantities, and they can have a negative impact on our bodies.
The analyses revealed that subjects with one or two VDR B alleles had significantly higher levels of blood, bone, and chelatable
lead than subjects with two VDR b alleles.
redox-active iron is an independent predictor of mortality after myocardial infarction in individuals with diabetes.
Neurobehavioral function and tibial and chelatable
lead levels in 543 farmer organolead workers.
Studies involving the longitudinal assessment of renal (6,29) function decline in susceptible patient populations have observed that low levels of blood Pb (<5 [micro]g/dl) and chelatable
Pb level were associated with decline in glomerular filtration rate over a 4-year follow up period in patients with chronic renal insufficiency (33).
63) However, one recent carefully controlled study was unable to demonstrate chelatable
levels of heavy metals, including mercury and lead, in children with autism, (64) and other recent studies have also questioned this association.
Predictors of DMSA chelatable
lead, tibial lead, and blood lead in 802 Korean lead workers.
It was also important to verify the lack of increased excretion of essential trace elements, such as copper and zinc, and to determine the size of the chelatable
pool of lead in nonoccupationally exposed adults.
The concentrations of chelatable
NTBI showed variations in comparison with the bleomycin-detectable NTBI concentrations, with higher NTBI concentrations measured by the chelation assay.
