Metallomics Issue 3 is now available online!
We have a new colourful cover for you to discover all about and an interesting Tutorial Review for you to enjoy. There is also a new HOT article on release of zinc from the olfactory bulb with potential influence on the olfactory process. Take a look at Issue 3 NOW!
Our outside front cover showcases work from Jürgen Gailer and colleagues from the University of Calgary, Canada. The researchers investigated the effect of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) on the metabolism of cis-platin in human plasma and discovered that NAC does not ameliorate cis-platin toxicity as well as sodium thiosulfate. To do this, they employed size exclusion chromatography coupled on-line to an inductively coupled plasma atomic emission
spectrometer and visualized NAC effects on the metabolism of CP in human plasma obtained from healthy volunteers.
