Use of biomarkers in the management of children with lupus.
Innsbruck, Austria. In Curr Rheumatol Rep, Mar 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.
Proteomic risk markers for coronary heart disease and stroke: validation and mediation of randomized trial hormone therapy effects on these diseases.
Seattle, United States. In Genome Med, 2012
METHODS: Five proteins potentially associated with CHD (beta-2 microglobulin (B2M), alpha-1-acid glycoprotein 1 (ORM1), thrombospondin-1(THBS1), complement factor D pre-protein (CFD), and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 (IGFBP1)) and five potentially associated with stroke (B2M, IGFBP2, IGFBP4, IGFBP6, and hemopexin (HPX)) had high discovery phase significance level ranking and an available ELISA assay, and were included in case-control validation studies within the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) hormone therapy trials.
[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.
