As one of the essential micronutrients, selenium has important biological functions. However, an effective and convenient method for evaluation of selenium nutritional status has not yet been established. Previous literature has disclosed effect of selenium deficiency on inactivating glutathion peroxidase and deiodinase, which may cause decreased conversion from thyroxine ( T4) to triiodothyronine (T3). A case-control study is designed to demonstrate the association between selenium deficiency and abnormally elevated T4 or T4/T3, which may provide more clues for establishing effective selenium assesment methods.

The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of selenium as selenomethionine that is required to optimize selenoprotein P in selenium-deficient Chinese subjects
Previous literature has found potential association between selenium deficiency and inactivated glutathione peroxidase and deiodinase, which may contribute to subsequent elevation of T4 an...
This study is being conducted to determine if patients with cirrhosis (liver disease) are selenium deficient. The effect of supplementation with two chemical forms of selenium on plasma se...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with liver cirrhosis can improve their selenium nutritional status by taking supplemental selenium.
This intervention study will investigate the relationship between consumption of selenium-fortified biscuits fortified with selenium-enriched yeast (approximately 60mcg of selenium per day...
Dietary selenium deficiency is recognized as a global problem. Pork is the most widely consumed meat throughout the world and an important source of selenium for humans. In this study, a reliable appr...
Both glutathione peroxidase and deiodinases are selenoproteins requiring selenium. Oxidative stress accompanying acute myocardial infarction (MI) may lead to activation of peroxidase and relative sele...
Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element, which however, exhibits a narrow safe range of intake. Selenium also occurs at several workplaces, which results in an inhalative selenium exposure of the ...
Inappropriate intake of key micronutrients in pregnancy is known to alter maternal endocrine status, impair placental development and induce fetal growth restriction. Selenium is an essential micronut...
Selenium(Se)is an important trace element for human health. Studies have shown that selenium deficiency and low protein(Pr) intake are the primary risk factors for Keshan disease.The relationship betw...
A selenium compound used as a source of SELENIUM, especially for patients that develop selenium deficiency following prolonged PARENTERAL NUTRITION.
Unstable isotopes of selenium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Se atoms with atomic weights 70-73, 75, 79, 81, and 83-85 are radioactive selenium isotopes.
A group of proteins that covalently attach to selenium or SELENIUM-containing compounds.
Inorganic compounds formed through the oxidation of selenium.
Inorganic compounds that contain selenium as an integral part of the molecule.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
