  • In this investigation the sodium levels in blood were analyzed in athletes submitted to constant load exercise at treadmill (LABEX and UNICAMP) by NAA. These data were compared with the rest condition (before starting the exercise program) as well as with the sodium levels of the healthy group (control group) select from Blood Banks. The results showed alterations in sodium levels of the athletes during the exercise training, mainly increase, suggesting the necessity of its evaluation during physical activities.
  • The elemental composition of 44 human bone samples from the Tutu site, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, was determined by neutron activation analysis and atomic absorption spectroscopy. Soils from the site will also be analyzed for the purpose of assessing diagenetic change in the bone samples after deposition. Twenty-eight elements were observed in the Tutu bones, including iodine, which has not previously been reported in human bone samples. The compositional data will be used along with other archaeological information to aid in reconstruction of diet at the Tutu site. The affect of ashing on the trace element composition of human bonemore » samples will also be assessed.« less
  • As part of an interlaboratory comparison in order to certify a synthetic material to be used for the validation of the proper implementation of k0-NAA a collaborative trial was organised. Based on this collaborative study RSD{sub r} values (repeatability relative standard deviation) ranging typically from 1 to 2% could be achieved, while RSD{sub R} values (reproducibility relative standard deviation) ranged typically from 2 to 5%. These values were then compared with the Horwitz criterium leading to HORRAT values in most cases well below 1, although two exceeding 1, depending on the element to be determined. It could be concluded thatmore » k{sub 0}-NAA is a very precise method, but that still some inconsistencies for certain elements do exist.« less
  • Neutron Activation Analysis was utilized for determining the concentration of chlorine and sodium in blood of Crioulo breed horses used for hyperimmune sera production (Bothrops, Diphtheria and Tetanus) at Butantan Institute (Sao Paulo city, Brasil). These data are an important support for a toxicological control of adverse reactions in patients who will receive the hyperimmune serum.
