Long-term effects of Ag-containing alloys on mucous tissue present in biopsy samples. (2/14)

The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term effects of alloys containing silver (mainly Ag-Sn alloy) on oral mucous tissue. We observed biopsy tissue specimens from patients diagnosed as having amalgam tattoo and/or metal pigmentation by light and electron microscopy and electron-probe microanalysis (EPMA). In most cases, Ag-Sn alloy was present in the tissue but it could not be confirmed if the alloy originated from amalgam. Distributions of both Ag-S and Ag-Sn have typical patterns. Most Ag forms Ag2S and is stably deposited in three patterns along the collagen, basement membrane, and fibrous cells without inducing any host reaction. On the other hand, Sn forms large granules that contain Ag, S, C, N, P, and Ca, and is in soft state in the tissue. Tissue reactions to the alloy become weaker as time passes.  (+info)

Immunolocalization of HLA-DR and metallothionein on amalgam tattoos. (3/14)

Despite studies concerning toxic reactions related to amalgam components in the literature, few studies have been devoted to evaluate local noxious effects of amalgam tattoos (AT) on biological tissues. In addition, little is known about activation of inflammatory cells by mucosa-implanted amalgam debris. Tissue reaction to AT depends on the particle size. Human leukocyte antigen DR (HLA-DR) is an activation marker of inflammatory cells associated with antigen presentation. Metallothioneins (MT) are proteins involved with metal detoxication, including mercury and silver. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the immunolocalization of HLA-DR and MT in AT with large or powdered particles. Paraffin-embedded AT tissue blocks were sectioned and subjected to immunohistochemistry for HLA-DR and MT localization. The results demonstrated a dense mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate associated with large and powdered debris and positivity for HLA-DR and MT in inflammatory cells. While blood vessel walls and connective fibers impregnated with powdered particles were negative for HLA-DR, they were positive for MT. In addition, wherever epithelial basement membrane impregnation by powdered amalgam particles was observed, a strong positivity for MT was detected. These findings demonstrate that residual elements of AT still have noxious local effects over tissues.  (+info)

Exposure-related health effects of silver and silver compounds: a review. (4/14)

A critical review of studies examining exposures to the various forms of silver was conducted to determine if some silver species are more toxic than others. The impetus behind conducting this review is that several occupational exposure limits and guidelines exist for silver, but the values for each depend on the form of silver as well as the individual agency making the recommendations. For instance, the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists has established separate threshold limit values for metallic silver (0.1 mg/m3) and soluble compounds of silver (0.01 mg/m3). On the other hand, the permissible exposure limit (PEL) recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Mine Safety and Health Administration and the recommended exposure limit set by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is 0.01 mg/m3 for all forms of silver. The adverse effects of chronic exposure to silver are a permanent bluish-gray discoloration of the skin (argyria) or eyes (argyrosis). Most studies discuss cases of argyria and argyrosis that have resulted primarily from exposure to the soluble forms of silver. Besides argyria and argyrosis, exposure to soluble silver compounds may produce other toxic effects, including liver and kidney damage, irritation of the eyes, skin, respiratory, and intestinal tract, and changes in blood cells. Metallic silver appears to pose minimal risk to health. The current occupational exposure limits do not reflect the apparent difference in toxicities between soluble and metallic silver; thus, many researchers have recommended that separate PELs be established.  (+info)

Silver deposition and tissue staining associated with wound dressings containing silver. (5/14)

Argyria is the general term used to denote a clinical condition in which excessive administration and deposition of silver causes a permanent irreversible gray-blue discoloration of the skin or mucous membranes. The amount of discoloration usually depends on the route of silver delivery (ie, oral or topical administration) along with the body's ability to absorb and excrete the administered silver compound. Argyria is accepted as a rare dermatosis but once silver particles are deposited, they remain immobile and may accumulate during the aging process. Topical application of silver salts (eg, silver nitrate solution) may lead to transient skin staining. To investigate their potential to cause skin staining, two silver-containing dressings (Hydrofiber and nanocrystalline) were applied to human skin samples taken from electively amputated lower limbs. The potential for skin discoloration was assayed using atomic absorption spectroscopy. When the dressings were hydrated with water, a significantly higher amount of silver was released from the nanocrystalline dressing compared to the Hydrofiber dressing (P <0.005), which resulted in approximately 30 times more silver deposition. In contrast, when saline was used as the hydration medium, the release rates were low for both dressings and not significantly different (silver deposition was minimal). Controlling the amount of silver released from silver-containing dressings should help reduce excessive deposition of silver into wound tissue and minimize skin staining.  (+info)

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. When is your skin like a black and white photograph? Sounds like the start to a bad riddle, right? Instead, its the essential question behind a new study from Brown University. The study shows, for the first time, how ingesting too much silver can cause argyria, which is a rare condition that turns a patients skin a striking shade of grayish blue.. Its the first conceptual model giving the whole picture of how one develops this condition, said Robert Hurt, professor of engineering at Brown. Whats interesting here is that the particles someone ingests arent the particles that ultimately cause the disorder.. Its been known for years that silver had something to do with argyria. Argyria has been documented in patients who have undergone alternative treatments involving silver and people who - ill advisedly - drink antimicrobial health tonics containing silver nanoparticles. Researchers have found silver particles lodged deep in the ...

Firstly, almost all studies that were done on the antibacterial and viral effects of silver were done in vitro, or in a petri dish. The human body is not a petri dish and there are far more factors at play in the human body. As Quackwatch writes, the fact that a product inhibits bacteria in a laboratory culture doesnt mean it is effective (or safe) in the human body. In fact, products that kill bacteria in the laboratory would be more likely to cause argyria because they contain more silver ions that are free to deposit in the users skin.. Furthermore, the National Institute of Health states that silver has no known function or benefits in the body when taken by mouth and that there are no legally marketed prescription or over-the-counter drugs containing colloidal silver that are taken by mouth.. The NIH also states that taking colloidal silver has several potentially serious side effects, including argyria, the discoloration of the skin, which is usually permanent.. The FDA, the ...
Blue nails, or more formally azure lunula, are characterized by a blue discoloration of the lunulae, seen in argyria and cases of hepatolenticular degeneration (Wilsons disease), also having been reported in hemoglobin M disease and hereditary acrolabial telangiectases. In Wilsons disease the blue color involves the lunula (most intense pigmentation) and fades proximally. In argyria, the nail is permanently pigmented a slate-blue color and is most evident in the lunula. Minocycline and Zidovudine can also turn the nail plate blue-gray. There are also reports of hydroxyurea as a rare cause.

Colloidal silver is the product the FDA and many mainstream medical people love to hate. Listening to them you would think every person taking colloidal silver is going to turn gray with silver accumulation in their skin (argyria). Their worst nightmare is people taking colloidal silver to combat the H1N1 swine flu the nightmare for them is that it might actually work.
Colloidal silver has been around a long time. It was used extensively in the 20th century until antibiotics became popular and relegated the use of silver in general to relative obscurity. Colloidal silver wasnt patentable; drugs were. Profits were made in selling a patented product. And some silver compounds had side effects if used improperly. They could cause argyria, a cosmetic skin condition which could cause the skin to turn a blue/gray color. With the present day problems of bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics, colloidal silver is making a resurgence in popularity and use. One of the reasons for the renewed interest is the fact that bacteria and viruses are not resistant to contact with silver. Colloidal silver may be the magic bullet for mankind if antibiotics are no longer useful. Colloidal silver was used to cure and/or treat many diseases before being replaced with antibiotics.. What was thought to be the end of infectious diseases was accomplished in the 1940s. With the ...
There has been much hype generated by those opposed to the use of colloidal silver, regarding the skin color changes that have been seen to occur, usually in the folds of skin at the elbows and knees. They usually fail to mention that this bluing or greying of the skin happens only after many years of exposure to very large quantities of silver salts, not the pure metallic colloids. The experimental studies often cited, and other cases of Argyria, were the results of the ingestion of toxic silver compounds such as silver nitrate. It was also an occupational hazard for silver miners who regularly breathed silver ore dust over the course of their careers. The use of micro-doses of colloidal silver for therapeutic purposes does not fall into this category, as it is not toxic ...

Basement membranes in the kidney are made up of a homogeneous matrix. In argyria, silver passes from the blood in the ionic form and diffuses into the kidney basement membranes in which it is precipitated. X-ray diffraction studies of silver-stained rat kidneys show that most of the silver in the kidneys is combined with some form of sulfur. Histochemical staining for sulfhydryls and disulfides demonstrates the presence of these groups in basement membranes. It appears that silver ions combine with either or both the sulfhydryl or disulfide groups in the basement membranes and also in mitochondria (when the silver diffuses into a cell).. ...
Montanas Libertarian candidate, who is seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Max Baucus in November, definitely stands out from the rest of the herd. Stan Jones, 63, has turned blue from drinking a silver solution thought to boost immunity. He started taking colloidal silver in 1999 for fear Y2K disruptions would cause a shortage of antibiotics. His skin began turning blue-gray a year ago. While he no longer takes the supplement, the skin condition, called argyria, is permanent. People ask me if its permanent and if Im dead, he said. I tell them Im practicing for Halloween. Or a second career in Las Vegas.

The mud is a tan/buff color on the thin top layer with layers of very black underneath due to anoxygenic conditions (very low oxygen concentration). We discussed two habitat zones, middle and lower, with very different mud consistencies because of different mud shrimp species that inhabit them. We used a mud core to collect and identify specimens of each. Neotrypaea californiensis (Ghost shrimp) are a sexually dimorphc species that are sediment feeders living in the middle zone. They are a waxy pale pink or orange color and can grow to about 10 cm. These are considered habitat engineers due to their ability to change the mud as they burrow and eat their way through it. VERY hard to stay afoot; dont forget to check for the photos. Pressing on further out into the flat we felt the mud consistency shift, signalling the lower zone where we found our second mud shrimp Upogebia pugettensis (Blue mud shrimp). It is tan to bluish-gray and grows to about 15 cm. In contrast to Neotypaea, it burrows ...

The silver in the amalgam leaches into your mouths soft tissue, resulting in what looks a bit like a tiny tattoo. Amalgam tattoos pose no harm. But if the blue-gray spot grows or changes color, there is a good possibility it may not be an amalgam tattoo. Ask your dentist to check it out ...
Lead has been found in at least 922 of 1,300 National Priorities List sites (hazardous waste sites) identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A release from an industrial plant, or from a container, does not always lead to exposure. You can be exposed to a chemical only when you come into contact with it. Exposures occur through breathing, eating, or drinking substances containing the chemical, or from skin contact with it. If you are exposed to lead, the appearance of symptoms and their seriousness is dependent upon how much, how long and by what way you were exposed. Your sex, age, lifestyle and state of health also contribute.. What is lead?. Lead is a naturally occurring bluish-gray metal found in small amounts in the earths crust.

Manufacturing industry enterprises have the highest number of occupational disease cases. The smelting industry takes the first place in the number of occupational diseases (65.2%); the second place is divided between production of other non-metallic products, repair and installation of machinery and equipment, production of other vehicles and equipment (8.6% each); production of finished metal products and manufacturing of machinery and equipment ...
Current Research: My primary interest is in fungal genomics. As associate director of the Center for the Conservation of Biological Resources (CCBR), I oversee a variety of rather diverse research projects. Two projects in which I am currently involved include a study of the genomic response of dermatophytic fungi to silver compounds, such as silver nitrate, silver sulfate and colloidal silver, commonly used in medicated patches used to treat large surface area injuries such as burns. Our goal is to understand the mechanism by which fungi develop a tolerance or resistance to silver. Using qPCR to study the expression of key metal transport and sequestration genes we hope to be able to shed some light on the pathways used by fungi to get around these commonly used anti-microbial agents.. The second project is a collaborative study to explore the microbial diversity of the deep subsurface terrestrial environment, both endemic and introduced, found within the Sanford Lab at Homestake near Lead, ...

NANOGOLD® will nucleate silver deposition resulting in a dense particle 2-80 nm in size or larger depending on development time. If specimens are to be embedded, silver enhancement is usually performed after embedding, although it may be done first. It must be completed before any staining reagents such as osmium tetroxide, lead citrate or uranyl acetate are applied, since these will nucleate silver deposition in the same manner as gold and produce non-specific staining. With NANOGOLD® reagents, low-temperature resins (eg Lowicryl) should be used and the specimens kept at or below room temperature until after silver development has been completed. Silver development is recommended for applications of NANOGOLD® in which these stains are to be used, otherwise the NANOGOLD® particles may be difficult to visualize against the stain. Our LI SILVER silver enhancement system is convenient and not light sensitive, and suitable for all applications. Improved results in the EM may be obtained using HQ ...

Bacterial infection represents a major cause of implant failure in dentistry. A common approach to overcoming this issue and treating peri-implant infection consists in the use of antibiotics. However, the rise of multidrug-resistant bacteria poses serious concerns to this strategy. A promising alternative is the use of antimicrobial peptides due to their broad-spectrum activity against bacteria and reduced bacterial resistance responses. The aim of the present study was to determine the in vitro antibacterial activity of the human lactoferrin-derived peptide hLf1-11 anchored to titanium surfaces. To this end, titanium samples were functionalized with the hLf1-11 peptide either by silanization methods or physical adsorption. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analyses confirmed the successful covalent attachment of the hLf1-11 peptide onto titanium surfaces. Lactate dehydrogenase assay determined that hLf1-11 peptide did not affect fibroblast viability. An outstanding reduction in the adhesion and ...
(Adapted from the Washington State Bureau of Labor and Industries) What is lead? Lead is a soft, bluish-gray metal found in small amounts throughout the environment.

Some modern day uses of lead include manufacturing
Extreme exposure of your feet to cold for a prolonged period can lead to a serious condition called frostbite. Frostbite starts by producing pain and a burning sensation in the exposed areas. This is followed by numbness in toes or feet and changes in skin color, from pale or red to bluish-gray or black. People with a history of frostbite often get it again in the same place.. Superficial frostbite injuries refer to those that involve the skin and subcutaneous tissue. When the damage goes more deeply, beyond the subcutaneous tissue and into muscles, nerves, tendons, or bones, they are classified as deep frostbite injuries. The extent of the injury impacts the prognosis for healing and long-term complications.. Children, the elderly, and diabetics are more prone to frostbite because of the size of their extremities or poor circulation. People who live or work outdoors also have a higher likelihood of contracting frostbite because of their increased exposure to the cold.. If you suspect that you ...
Dimension stone - Most dimension stone in North Carolina is produced from granite, agrillite, quartzite, marble, and sandstone. The North Carolina Granite Company operates one of the largest granite dimension stone quarries in the world at Mt. Airy in Surry County. The Mount Airy granite ia a light-colored biotie granitoid (monzogranite). The rock is used as street curbing, ashlar for masonry walls, rubble, rip-rap, monuments, and sawed blocks for buildings. Dimension granite is also quarried in Rowan County from light-colored gray to pink granite of the Salisbury pluton. This granite is used for foundations, street-curbing, paving, and monuments. Dark bluish-gray argillite (Mudstone Member of the Cid Formation) is quarried by Jacobs Creek Stone Company from slate belt rocks in Montgomery and Davidson counties. This stones smooth, natural cleavage allows it to be used extensively in flooring, stair treds, borders, and window sills. Marble is quarried near Murphy as market conditions dictate. A ...
Nuclear sclerosis, or lenticular sclerosis, is a condition common in older pets that causes the pupils of their eyes to take on a cloudy bluish-gray look.
According to the North Carolina General Statutes, occupational diseases covered by workers compensation are diseases caused by conditions that are characteristic with a particular trade or occupation, but excluding ordinary diseases of life to which the general public is equally exposed outside of the employment. For example, if a worker, whose job was a paint sprayer for many years, has lung damage due to him breathing a specific chemical in the paint, he would probably have an occupational disease. However, an office worker who happens to develop a lung disease that is common to the everyday public would probably not have a compensable occupational disease under workers compensation.. The list of occupational diseases is listed in North Carolina General Statute 97-53. There are presently twenty eight specific diseases listed in this section. Common examples of potential occupational diseases include, but are not limited to, mercury poisoning, asbestosis, anthrax, arsenic poisoning, and ...
The cover shows that toroidal condensates of duplex DNA can be used as templates for facile preparation of monodisperse nanorings of noble metals. In the work by Zinchenko and co-workers, reported on p. 2820, conformational transition of long DNA chains from elongated coils into compact toroidal condensates changes the manner of reduced silver deposition, from DNA chain metallization with nanoparticles to the formation of silver rings. A one-pot, three-step, simple preparation method leads to formation of well-defined monodisperse silver nanorings (100 nm in diameter) dispersed in water. ...

... is a set of noncommunicable diseases brought on by consumption of junk food. Native Americans, the indigenous people of Oceania and perhaps other people of Asiatic origin are susceptible[1]. It is characterized by obesity, heart disease, diabetes and shortened life span, and, of course, by a change from a traditional diet and exercise to a modern diet and a sedentary lifestyle.. Evidence found[who?] through the study of mitochondrial DNA suggests that there are several factors at play. Subjects of maternal descent from the above named indigenous populations have several genetic factors that provide more efficient conversion of some classes of carbohydrates into ATP. There is also indication[weasel words] that cellular responses to injury, muscular efficiency, and other metabolic differences may set the stage for other factors to cause the symptoms of the syndrome.. Increased rates of depression are known[weasel words] to produce higher rates of obesity through decreased ...
