Summary of "Calprotectin as a smoldering activity detection tool and renal prognosis biomarker in ANCA associated vasculitis."

Calprotectin is produced by neutrophils and macrophages, and released during the acute phase of the ANCA vasculitis. The aim of our study was to determine if serum and urine calprotectin are disease activity and prognosis biomarkers in ANCA vasculitis patients during remission.

Systemic calprotectin and chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases.

Calprotectin is a calcium binding protein produced by neutrophils and monocytes locally at the site of inflammation in order to trigger the innate immunity receptors. This unique characteristic makes ...

Calprotectin protects against experimental colonic inflammation in mice.

Calprotectin (CP) is a heterodimer composed of S100A8 and S100A9 that is highly abundant in neutrophils and monocytes/macrophages. Calprotectin fecal levels are used routinely to monitor inflammatory ...

Fecal calprotectin in assessing inflammatory bowel disease endoscopic activity: a diagnostic accuracy meta-analysis.

Fecal calprotectin (FC) has been suggested as a sensitive biomarker of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, its usefulness in assessing IBD activity needs to be more precisely defined. In this m...

Fecal Calprotectin.

Calprotectin is a 36kDa member of the S100 family of proteins. It is derived predominantly from neutrophils and has direct antimicrobial effects and a role within the innate immune response. Calprotec...

The diagnostic value of human epididymis protein 4 as a novel biomarker in patients with renal dysfunction.

In this study, we investigated the diagnostic value of human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) in acute and chronic renal dysfunction and analyzed the correlation between HE4 levels and the results of routin...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diuretic and renal diagnostic aid related to sorbitol. It has little significant energy value as it is largely eliminated from the body before any metabolism can take place. It can be used to treat oliguria associated with kidney failure or other manifestations of inadequate renal function and has been used for determination of glomerular filtration rate. Mannitol is also commonly used as a research tool in cell biological studies, usually to control osmolarity.

An asymptomatic and slow-growing PLASMA CELL dyscrasia characterized by presence of MYELOMA PROTEINS and clonal bone marrow plasma cells without end-organ damage (e.g., renal impairment). It is distinguished from MONOCLONAL GAMMOPATHY OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE by a much higher risk of progression to symptomatic MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

A small cytosolic fatty-acid binding protein that forms a lipid-binding beta-barrel structure and is expressed by CARDIOMYOCYTES and at lower levels in brain tissue. It is released into plasma immediately following cardiac injury and may therefore serve as a useful biomarker for the early detection of MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.

Indolesulfonic acid used as a dye in renal function testing for the detection of nitrates and chlorates, and in the testing of milk.
