Study on the usefulness of APR scores from the viewpoint of proinflammatory cytokines.
Tokorozawa, Japan. In Dis Markers, Dec 2014
METHODS: We evaluated the usefulness of acute phase reactants (APR) in 46 newborns whose serum up to age 7 days had been stored, with comparison of three types (Group I: infection 15, Group F: fetal inflammatory response syndrome 17, and Group C: control 14) of APR-based scores, those of C-reactive protein (CRP), alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), and haptoglobin (Hp), with proinflammatory cytokine levels.
Use of biomarkers in the management of children with lupus.
Innsbruck, Austria. In Curr Rheumatol Rep, 2013
The most promising biomarkers in juvenile-onset SLE include cell-bound complement activation products, some genomic profiles, and urinary proteins such as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, and alpha-1-acid glycoprotein.
The urine proteome as a radiation biodosimeter.
Kansas City, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2012
Analysis of acute-phase response proteins and markers of acute kidney injury showed increased urinary levels of cystatin superfamily proteins and alpha-1-acid glycoprotein.
[Psychotropic medication of elderly patients].
Tokyo, Japan. In Nihon Rinsho, 2012
Drugs medicated for elderly patients show different pharmacokinetics from young patients, because of change in the makeup of bodies, decrease of albumin, increase of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, hypofunction of metabolism, and excretion by aging.
