Summary of "Paradoxical Relationship Between Glycated Hemoglobin and Longitudinal Change in Physical Functioning in Older Adults: A Prospective Cohort Study."

Hyperglycemia with high hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels is associated with significant health risks. However, the relationship between HbA1c levels and the physical functioning status in later life remains uncertain and so is the possible underlying mechanism.

Glycated Hemoglobin and All-cause and Cause-specific Mortality Among Adults With and Without Diabetes.

The patterns of associations between glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and mortality are still unclear.

Glycated hemoglobin concentrations of red blood cells minimally increase during storage under standard blood banking conditions.

Few and inconsistent data exist describing the effect of storage duration on glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) concentrations of red blood cells (RBCs), impeding interpretation of HbA1c values in transfused...

Development and characterization of novel 2'-F-RNA aptamers specific to human total and glycated hemoglobins.

Aptamers are short DNA and RNA fragments which bind their molecular targets with affinity and specificity comparable to those of antibodies. Here, we describe the selection of novel 2'-F-RNA aptamers ...

Age is the main determinant of glycated hemoglobin levels in a general Polish population without diabetes: The NATPOL 2011 Study.

Measurements of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in non-diabetics can identify subjects who are at increased risk for future cardiovascular (CV) events. There is no consensus agreement whether the addition...

Glycated Hemoglobin and the Risk of Sternal Wound Infection after Adult Cardiac Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Increased glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) has been shown to increase the risk of mortality, myocardial infarction and stroke after cardiac surgery, whereas its impact on the development of sternal wound i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Products of non-enzymatic reactions between GLUCOSE and HEMOGLOBIN A, occurring as a minor fraction of the hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes. Hemoglobin A1c is hemoglobin A with glucose covalently bound to the terminal VALINE of the beta chain. Glycated hemoglobin A is used as an index of the average blood sugar level over a lifetime of erythrocytes.

Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

The major component of hemoglobin in the fetus. This HEMOGLOBIN has two alpha and two gamma polypeptide subunits in comparison to normal adult hemoglobin, which has two alpha and two beta polypeptide subunits. Fetal hemoglobin concentrations can be elevated (usually above 0.5%) in children and adults affected by LEUKEMIA and several types of ANEMIA.

Blockage of an artery due to passage of a clot (THROMBUS) from a systemic vein to a systemic artery without its passing through the lung which acts as a filter to remove blood clots from entering the arterial circulation. Paradoxical embolism occurs when there is a defect that allows a clot to cross directly from the right to the left side of the heart as in the cases of ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS or open FORAMEN OVALE. Once in the arterial circulation, a clot can travel to the brain, block an artery, and cause a STROKE.

A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.
