Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Metabolic Changes in Lupus Patients

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is the most common type of lupus. SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. More...

Circulating Calprotectin as Biomarker in Neutrophil-Related Inflammation

Calprotectin (CLP) acts as an endogenous ligand of different cell-surface proteins like Toll-like receptor 4 and receptor of advanced glycation end-products facilitating a local proinflammatory effect. CLP is mostly secreted through an active, calcium-dependent Protein Kinase C (PKC) pathway, next to the passive leakage from necrotic cells and release in neutrophil extracellular traps (NET).

Coagulation Dysfunction and Infection Evaluated in Patients with AECOPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the common chronic airway obstructive diseases, characterized by persistent respiratory symptoms and airflow limitation. In acute exacerbation stage (AECOPD), patients developed respiratory failure often have circulatory and coagulation dysfunction, which was considered the cause of thrombosis events in the patients.

High Liver Enzymes Increase Diabetes Risk for Hispanic Adults

Non‐alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been associated with increased risk of incident diabetes, but such evidence is lacking in the Hispanic/Latino population, which has high prevalence of obesity and NAFLD. More...

Performance of Five Lipoprotein(a) Immunoassays Evaluated

Increased serum Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered an independent, inherited risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), including myocardial infarction and stroke. This risk is believed to be due to pro-atherogenic, pro-inflammatory, and pro-thrombotic properties of the Lp(a) particle More...

Flow-Cytometric Expression of Endoglin Assessed in B-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a malignant disorder representing clonal expansion and arrest of maturation of lymphoid progenitor cells in the bone marrow, blood, and extramedullary sites. The incidence of ALL generally follows a bimodal distribution, with its first peak occurring in childhood and the second around the age of 50. More...

NMR-Based Method Measures Circulating Blood Citrate Levels

Recent studies show that citrate is involved in several biological processes such as inflammation, cancer, insulin secretion, acetylation of histones, neurological development and hydroxylglutaric aciduria, indicating that it has functions beyond energy regulation. More...
