Characterization of Fatty Acid Composition of Triglycerides in Patients With Hypertriglyceridemia-induced Acute Pancreatitis

2019-09-26 05:42:41 | BioPortfolio


) Finding a unique pattern in the triglyceride composition of patients with hypertriglyceridemia that increases the chances of getting pancreatitis and which can serve as a laboratory predictive tool for patients and define them as a at-risk population.

2) Finding the typical fatty acid composition in triglycerides for patients at high risk of pancreatic acute inflammation that can be used to develop unique drugs for pancreatic acute inflammation caused by high levels of triglycerides.


The study will be conducted at the Sheba Medical Center Lipid Institute, number of participants: 10 healthy participants, 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia without prior pancreatitis and 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia and at least one case of severe pancreatitis in the last 5 years.

A total of 30 participants Participants who are found suitable during their visit to the Lipid Institute Clinic or during their hospitalization at Sheba Medical Center will receive an explanation of the study, will be asked to sign a consent form. And check the fatty acid levels. Healthy volunteers who meet the inclusion conditions will also be asked to sign a consent form and their blood will be taken and kept frozen for further study

Conservative management in hypertriglyceridemia-associated pancreatitis.

Severe hypertriglyceridemia (serum triglyceride >10 mmol/L) is implicated in ~9% of acute pancreatitis cases. Certain guidelines list severe hypertriglyceridemia as an indication for plasmapheresis.

Comparison of glomerular filtration rates determined using two- and single-blood sample methods with a three-blood sample technique for 2922 paediatric studies.

Several different methods for measuring glomerular filtration rates (GFRs) have been developed in search of a more accurate and simplified technique. Currently, the main methods used are the slope-int...

Management of severe hypertriglyceridemia due to lipoprotein lipase deficiency in children

Severe hypertriglyceridemia is an endocrine emergency and is associated with acute pancreatitis and hyperviscosity syndrome. We describe an infant with lipoprotein lipase deficiency with severe hypert...

The effect of hyperlipidemia on the cardiovascular system is uncertain in female. The aim of the present study was to determine whether administration of a lipogenic diet alters cardiovascular paramet...

Accuracy of a blood glucose monitoring system that recognizes insufficient sample blood volume and allows application of more blood to the same test strip.

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) can play a key role in diabetes management. The CONTOUR®NEXT ONE (Ascensia Diabetes Care, Parsippany, NJ, USA) blood glucose monitoring system (BGMS) has been ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of elevated levels of TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.

The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.

The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.

The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
