To confirm that the carbohydrate antigen 19.9 (CA 19.9) protein can be evaluated by determining changes in the β2 zone in protein electrophoresis.
Primary complement deficiencies are rare diseases.
In contrast to Caucasians, hereditary anticoagulant deficiencies are more common in Asians and mutations are heterogeneous among different countries. This study aimed to determine the prevalence and g...
Premature ovarian failure (POF) is defined when a female achieves menopause before the age of 40. Although many conditions are known to be causative for POF, the most common one is idiopathic. This st...
The capillary zone electrophoresis method of albumin measurement is frequently used in monoclonal gammopathy patients but some studies suggest poor performances of the method in this population. The a...
Hypotheses: (1)Wound healing during hospital stay will be equal between systems, (2)RNs will perceive the Versatile One (EZCare) system as easier to use, (3)Costs related to dressing chang...
Evaluation of the rate of achievement of serum protein electrophoresis (PPE) in diagnosis in a retrospective cohort of patients at Rennes University Hospital
Numerous studies Have shown that limb ischemic preconditioning can protect vital organs (including the heart) from ischemia-reperfusion injury,which has a broad application prospect.But it...
Patients undergoing bariatric surgery often develop new vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies or exacerbate prior deficiencies after surgery. Several bariatric supplement products exist incl...
Aim of the present study is to investigate the influence of hyperoxia on the protein expression using the differential analysis of protein expression in tissues (proteomics). In the study,...
A serum protein that regulates the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION PATHWAY. It binds as a cofactor to COMPLEMENT FACTOR I which then hydrolyzes the COMPLEMENT C4B in the CLASSICAL PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE (C4bC2a).
A serum protein which is important in the ALTERNATIVE COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION PATHWAY. This enzyme cleaves the COMPLEMENT C3B-bound COMPLEMENT FACTOR B to form C3bBb which is ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE.
Complement activation triggered by the interaction of microbial POLYSACCHARIDES with serum MANNOSE-BINDING LECTIN resulting in the activation of MANNOSE-BINDING PROTEIN-ASSOCIATED SERINE PROTEASES. As in the classical pathway, MASPs cleave COMPLEMENT C4 and COMPLEMENT C2 to form C3 CONVERTASE (C4B2A) and the subsequent C5 CONVERTASE (C4B2A3B) leading to cleavage of COMPLEMENT C5 and assembly of COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX.
Serum glycoproteins participating in the host defense mechanism of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION that creates the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX. Included are glycoproteins in the various pathways of complement activation (CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; ALTERNATIVE COMPLEMENT PATHWAY; and LECTIN COMPLEMENT PATHWAY).
Serum serine proteases which participate in COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION. They are activated when complexed with the MANNOSE-BINDING LECTIN, therefore also known as Mannose-binding protein-Associated Serine Proteases (MASPs). They cleave COMPLEMENT C4 and COMPLEMENT C2 to form C4b2a, the CLASSICAL PATHWAY C3 CONVERTASE.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
