Producers of Engineered Nanomaterials—What Motivates Company and Worker Participation in Biomonitoring Programs?

This publication contains the results of a study about the production and handling of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). The goal was to find out the reasons why workers and managers would or would not participate in biomonitoring programs, which can help with risk assessment and safety measures for workers. The results of the study are useful in designing appropriate biomonitoring programs for workers exposed to ENMs.

Urinary Malondialdehyde (MDA) Concentrations in the General Population—A Systematic Literature Review and Meta-Analysis

Oxidative stress has been associated with various inflammation-related human diseases. It is defined as an imbalance between the production and elimination of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS can oxidize proteins, lipids, and DNA, and some of these oxidized products are excreted in urine, such as malondialdehyde (MDA), which is considered a biomarker for oxidative damage of lipids. To interpret changes of this biomarker as a measure of oxidative species overproduction in humans, a background range for urinary MDA concentration in the general population is needed.
