Title
Comparison of the serum selenium content of healthy adults living in the Antwerp region (Belgium) with recent literature data
Author
Abstract
Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, after improved matrix modification and using Zeeman background correction, was used to measure the serum selenium content of healthy adults living in the Antwerp region (Belgium). The mean serum concentration of 13 men and 13 women, sampled once a month during I year, was 84.3 +/- 9.4 ng/ml with a broad range of 51.4 - 121.7 ng/ml. The intra-individual variation was remarkably high. Recent literature on selenium concentrations is reviewed and values are tabulated, with limitation to healthy adults and European countries. The mean serum selenium concentration measured corresponded well to older literature data for Belgium. The obtained values were found to be in the medium range compared with the literature data for other European countries. (C) 2004 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.
