Benchmarking as a Public Health Strategy for Creating Healthy Food Environments: An Evaluation of the INFORMAS Initiative (2012-2020).

aspect benchmarked. INFORMAS has resulted in the development and widespread application of standardized methods for assessing the characteristics of food environments. The activities of INFORMAS have ...

Does arsenic pose a health concern after consumption of clay products?

bioaccessibility and bioavailability of the inorganic arsenic present, rather than to the As species distribution, which often receives most attention in standard foodstuffs. In the present study, clay products for ...

Validity of self-reported mammography uptake in the Belgian health interview survey: selection and reporting bias.

as the gold standard. Selection bias was assessed by comparing BHIS estimates reimbursement rates in BHIS- BCHI with similar estimates from the Echantillon Permanent/Permanente Steekproef (EPS), ...

Comparing health insurance data and health interview survey data for ascertaining chronic disease prevalence in Belgium.

both data sources were compared. Agreement was measured using sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) assuming BHIS data as gold standard. Kappa ...

Ecotoxicity profile of heavily contaminated surface water of two rivers in Tunisia

toxicological approaches. In the physicochemical analysis, the recorded levels of COD and TSS in both samples exceed the Tunisian standards. Using the analytical approach, several metals and some textile dyes ...

Physico-chemical characterisation of the fraction of silver (nano)particles in pristine food additive E174 and in E174-containing confectionery.

dimension, assessed as minimal Feret diameter, of the fraction of (nano)particles determined by quantitative TEM analysis was 11 ± 4 nm and 18 ± 7 nm (overall mean ± standard deviation), for food additives and ...

Chemical and toxciological characterization of e-liquid cigarettes

information on their genotoxicity was present. For four of these flavourings, a commercial standard was available and thus could be tested in vitro using an Ames- and micronucleus test. One of the four ...

Physico-chemical characterisation of the fraction of silver (nano)particles in pristine food additive E174 and in E174-containing confectionery

dimension, assessed as minimal Feret diameter, of the fraction of (nano)particles determined by quantitative TEM analysis was 11 ± 4 nm and 18 ± 7 nm (overall mean ± standard deviation), for food additives and ...

PT-2020-NRL-TE-FASFC “Determination of As, Cd, Pb and Hg in food supplements"

assigned values (xa) and their uncertainty (u(xa)) were determined as the consensus of participant’s results. Standard deviations for proficiency assessment were calculated using the modified ...

Phytochemical screening, antioxidant, anticoagulant and in vitro toxic and genotoxic properties of aerial parts extracts of Fumaria officinalis L. growing in Tunisia

using standard methods. Antioxidant activity was evaluated by DPPH and ABTS methods. The anticoagulant activity was evaluated by prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) ...
