Placenta, 24(2-3), 149-154 (2003-02-05)
Significant interindividual variability exists following maternal alcohol consumption; not all children born to alcoholic women manifest the symptoms associated with foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). To investigate the potential role of the placenta as a source of variability by determining...

Gas chromatographic analysis of complex carbohydrate mixtures requires highly effective and reliable derivatisation strategies for successful separation, identification, and quantitation of all constituents. Different single-step (per-trimethylsilylation, isopropylidenation) and two-step approaches (ethoximation-trimethylsilylation, ethoximation-trifluoroacetylation, benzoximation-trimethylsilylation, benzoximation-trifluoroacetylation) have been comprehensively studied with regard...

In addition to being produced in ethanol metabolism, acetaldehyde occurs naturally in alcoholic beverages. Limited epidemiological evidence points to acetaldehyde as an independent risk factor for cancer during alcohol consumption, in addition to the effects of ethanol. This study aims...

Mainly known for its more famous parent compound, ethanol, acetaldehyde was first studied in the 1940s, but then research interest in this compound waned. However, in the last two decades, research on acetaldehyde has seen a revitalized and uninterrupted interest....

The impact of alcohol on the risk of stomach cancer is controversial. Although aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) Glu504Lys (rs671) polymorphism has a strong effect on acetaldehyde metabolism, little is known about its impact on stomach cancer risk when combined with...
