Minimal human data exist on actual liver vitamin A compared with blood biomarkers. One blood biomarker, the percent of total serum retinol (vitamin A) in the form of retinyl esters, has be...
Pityriasis alba (PA) is a common, benign skin disorder occurring predominantly in children and adolescents. It is characterized by ill-defined hypopigmented macules and patches, round or o...
This study will evaluate serum vitamin D (25(OH)D) and serum leptin levels at the time of diagnosis of ovarian, primary peritoneal, and/or fallopian tube cancer as well as vitamin D recept...
vitamin D may have multiple functions, one of them is modulating reproductive processes and the reproductive role of vitamin D is highlighted by expression of the vitamin D receptors in te...
We aimed to determine the effect of vitamin D replacement therapy on serum FGF-23 concentrations in vitamin D deficient women and to compare the FGF-23 concentrations of vitamin D deficien...
Serum free 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) rather than total 25(OH)D may better indicate vitamin D status during pregnancy given the pregnancy-associated increase in serum vitamin D binding protein (DBP...
Hypovitaminosis D has been extensively documented in critically ill humans. However, whether or not critically ill dogs have alterations in vitamin D concentrations remains unconfirmed. The primary ai...
There is clear evidence that proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs), H2-receptor antagonists (H2RAs), and metformin can reduce serum vitamin B-12 concentrations by inhibiting the absorption of the vitamin. How...
Patients with sickle cell anemia (SCA) can acquire many biochemical abnormalities, including altered magnesium levels. However, the roles of magnesium in the pathogenesis and management of SCA need to...
Obesity and renal disease are both associated with low serum 25(OH)D. The aims of the present study were to (a) assess vitamin D status and compare serum vitamin D levels in overweight/obese versus no...
All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.
Immune complex disease caused by the administration of foreign serum or serum proteins and characterized by fever, lymphadenopathy, arthralgia, and urticaria. When they are complexed to protein carriers, some drugs can also cause serum sickness when they act as haptens inducing antibody responses.
Proteins that are present in blood serum, including SERUM ALBUMIN; BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS; and many other types of proteins.
Serum albumin from humans. It is an essential carrier of both endogenous substances, such as fatty acids and BILIRUBIN, and of XENOBITOICS in the blood.
