Genetic Susceptibility to Neurodegeneration in Amazon: Apolipoprotein E Genotyping in Vulnerable Populations Exposed to Mercury

Genetic Susceptibility to Neurodegeneration in Amazon: Apolipoprotein E Genotyping in Vulnerable Populations Exposed to Mercury Human exposure to mercury is presently a major public health concern worldwide (Sheehan et al., 2014; Andreoli and Sprovieri, 2017). Since 2013, a growing number of countries are agreeing to join efforts aiming to protect human health and the environment against…

Silent Inflammation in the Jaw and Neurological Dysregulation – Case Study Linking Rantes/Ccl5 Overexpression in Jawbone with Chemokine Receptors in the Central Nervous System

“With the increasing complexity of various systemic diseases, it is appropriate to discuss the background of their pathogenesis. Autonomic dysregulation with poorly defined multisystem disorders frequently present a challenging clinical situation for medical practitioners [1,2]. With the absence of any discernable cause, together with insufficient research on this increasingly prevalent phenomenon, many presentations of this…

Genetic Susceptibility to Neurodegeneration in Amazon: Apolipoprotein E Genotyping in Vulnerable Populations Exposed to Mercury

By Gabriela P. F. Arrifano Rosa C. R. Martín-Doimeadios, María Jiménez-Moreno, et al. “Human exposure to mercury is a serious problem of public health in Amazon. As in other vulnerable populations throughout the world, Amazonian riverine populations are chronically exposed to this metal and some symptoms of mercury intoxication were already detected in these populations.…
