A Case of Docetaxel Induced Myositis and Review of the Literature.
New York City, United States. In Case Report Rheumatol, 2014
Laboratory findings were notable for elevation in creatine phosphokinase (CPK), aldolase, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR); a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of her lower extremities showed evidence of bilateral muscle edema involving the anterior compartment muscles of the thighs.
[Prognostic factors in hantavirus infections].
Trabzon, Turkey. In Mikrobiyol Bul, 2014
High serum levels of white blood cells, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine phophokinase (CPK), C-reactive protein (CRP), prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), D-dimer and INR (International normalized ratio) are prognostic factors that increase the mortality risk.
Rhabdomyolosis and its pathogenesis.
Hangzhou, China. In World J Emerg Med, 2011
Since the necrosis and dissolution of muscle cells, entocytes such as myoglobin, creatine phosphokinase (CPK), electrolytes, proteins and non-protein substances were released into the plasma, the detection of the entocytes may contribute to the early diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis.
Calcium and secondary CPK signaling in plants in response to herbivore attack.
Kyoto, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2010
Here, we review the sequence of signal transductions triggered by herbivory-evoked Ca(2+) signaling leading to CPK actions for defense responses, and discuss in a comparative way the involvement of CPKs in the signal transduction of a variety of other biotic and abiotic stresses.
[Macroenzymes: macro-ASAT and macro-CPK. Two cases and literature review].
Colmar, France. In Rev Med Interne, 2009
CASE REPORTS: We report two cases: firstly, a macro-aspartate aminotransferase (macro-ASAT) discovered in an 82-year-old woman who presented with an isolated and persistent elevation of the ASAT activity that was discovered after sepsis, secondly, a macro-creatine-kinase (macro-CPK) diagnosed in a 62-year-old man after several years of investigations for a persistent CPK elevation.
