Reference Intervals Established For Serum Ferritin In Chinese Adults

As the foundation for the interpretation of medical laboratory data, reference intervals (RIs) for analytes are one of the most widely used clinical decision‐making tool. Nevertheless, although measurement of serum ferritin (SF) has largely replaced laboratory assays of serum iron and transferrin or total iron‐binding capacity in clinical practice, there is no gold‐standard method for measuring SF. More...

Diagnostic Values of Serum STAT4 and sEng Analyzed in Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys. Preeclampsia usually begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy in women whose blood pressure had been normal. More...

Anti-Müllerian Hormone Immunoassay Validated

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is a homodimeric glycoprotein with roles in regulation of fetal sexual differentiation and folliculogenesis in the adult ovary. AMH is increasingly used as a biomarker of ovarian reserve in clinical practice, and is used both for management of fertility treatments and prediction of menopause. More...
