  • Lead Poisoning

    Lead poisoning is most commonly caused by occupational exposure. It presents with a myriad of signs and symptoms ranging from mild anemia to frank encephalopathy, depending on the blood lead levels as well as the duration of exposure.

    Hookworm infection caused by the soil-transmitted nematodes Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale is one of the most common parasitic infections worldwide.

  • Riboflavin Deficiency

    Abstract Flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) are essential coenzymes in redox reactions. For example, FAD is a coenzyme for both glutathione reductase and enzymes that mediate the oxidative folding of secretory proteins. Here we investigated short-term effects of moderately[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
