Performance and variability of QuantiFERON Gold Plus assay associated with phlebotomy type.

QuantiFERON Gold Plus (Plus) assay has two approved methods for blood collection: direct in-tube (Plus direct) or the transfer of blood from a lithium heparin tube (Plus transfer). Currently, there is...

Rhamnan sulfate extracted from Monostroma nitidum attenuates blood coagulation and inflammation of vascular endothelial cells.

Rhamnan sulfate (RS) is a polysaccharide with a rhamnose backbone isolated from Monostroma nitidum. Like heparin, it exerts anticoagulant activity in the presence of antithrombin. Endothelial cells fa...

Substantial differences in serum concentrations of psychoactive drugs measured in samples stored for two days or more on standard serum tubes versus serum tubes containing gel separators.

Drugs may potentially adsorb to blood collection tubes containing gel separators in the pre-analytical phase of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). The aim of this study was to compare measured concent...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A lithium salt, classified as a mood-stabilizing agent. Lithium ion alters the metabolism of BIOGENIC MONOAMINES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, and affects multiple neurotransmission systems.

A salt of lithium that has been used experimentally as an immunomodulator.

Inorganic compounds that contain lithium as an integral part of the molecule.

An element in the alkali metals family. It has the atomic symbol Li, atomic number 3, and atomic weight 6.94. Salts of lithium are used in treating BIPOLAR DISORDER.

A highly acidic mucopolysaccharide formed of equal parts of sulfated D-glucosamine and D-glucuronic acid with sulfaminic bridges. The molecular weight ranges from six to twenty thousand. Heparin occurs in and is obtained from liver, lung, mast cells, etc., of vertebrates. Its function is unknown, but it is used to prevent blood clotting in vivo and vitro, in the form of many different salts.
