A Lipoclastic accelerating Action of Serum as an Index in Pathological Conditions January Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine J. Shaw-Mackenzie. Methods. Serum LCN2 levels of in-patients who underwent coronary angiography were measured by sandwich enzyme immunoassay.

Demographic ( men and 92 postmenopausal women) and clinical (metabolic syndrome (MS), triglyceride (TG) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels) characteristics were collected to assess independent factors of CAD (CAD: and non-CAD: 73) and serum LCN2 levels Cited by: Lipocalin-2 (LCN-2) is a pleiotropic kDa secretory protein, currently used as a biomarker for renal injury and inflammation.

Its serum level is increased under different pathological conditions but the source and cause are unclear.

The aim of our study was to prospectively evaluate the LCN-2 expression in different pathological conditions. Total HSP70 levels in serum samples of humans were measured using an HSP70 immunoassay (Duoset, DYC, R&D Systems, Minneapolis, MN, USA), according to the manufacturer’s instructions with modified buffers.

The ELISA is designed to detect inducible human HSP All serum samples were tested in three independent ELISA experiments in by: Serum Lipocalin-2 (LCN-2) as a major acute phase protein under different pathological conditions: in vivo and in vitro studies Dissertation Zur Erlangung des Doktorgrades der Mathematischen und Natur Wissenschaftlichen Fakultäten der Georg-August-Universität zu Göttingen Vorgelegt von Sadaf Sultan aus Lahore, Pakistan Göttingen Lipocalin-2 (LCN2), also known as oncogene 24p3 or neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the LCN2 gene.

NGAL is involved in innate immunity by sequestrating iron, thus limiting bacterial growth. It is expressed in neutrophils and in low levels in the kidney, prostate, and epithelia of the respiratory and alimentary s: LCN2, 24p3, MSFI, NGAL, p25, lipocalin 2.

A term meaning "marked" by jaundice; used to describe serum, plasma, or urine specimens that have an abnormal deep yellow to yellow-brown color due to high bilirubin levels. LIPEMIA Abnormal amount of. Neutrophil gelatinase–associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a small (kDa) molecule that belongs to a superfamily of lipocalins and is normally secreted in low amounts in the lungs, kidneys, trachea, stomach, and colon.Levels of NGAL are elevated in various pathological states, including acute or chronic kidney injury, neoplasia, chronic.

Lipozene has only one important ingredient: annan is a natural fiber that comes from the konjac root, which is a plant found in Asia.

Asians have long been hip to the helpful properties of glucomannan, and it's used for everything from skin care to a thickening agent in China and : Molly Edmonds. Serum neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a well-known biomarker of acute kidney injury. Serum NGAL was recently proposed as a potential predictor of mortality in post cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS) patients following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).

However, the potential predictive value of NGAL for neurological outcomes is by: 7. Hyperlipidemia is abnormally elevated levels of any or all lipids or lipoproteins in the blood. Hyperlipidemia is an umbrella term that refers to acquired or genetic disorders that result in high levels of lipids (fats, cholesterol, or triglycerides) circulating in the blood.

This disease is usually chronic and requires ongoing medication to control blood lipid lty: Cardiology.

Objectives Acute uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) in women is often treated based on symptoms alone. Urinary tract infection symptoms are highly sensitive but lack specificity and result in overuse of antibiotics.

We sought to determine if urine neutrophil gelatinase–associated lipocalin (uNGAL) levels in urine can accurately discriminate between UTI and healthy women.

It is stated that AKI can be developed at high levels up to 30–50% after open-heart surgery under CPB [5, 14, 15].However, kidney failure requiring dialysis is observed in approximately % of patients after cardiac surgery, and this is associated with about Cited by: 1.

Background/Aims. Renal impairment is a common complication of cirrhosis. Serum creatinine is less sensitive in these patients. Measurement of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the gold standard but time consuming. The aim is to validate plasma NGAL (pNGAL) and urinary NGAL (uNGAL) as markers of renal function in patients with HCV related cirrhosis.

Background: Excess caloric intake expands adipose tissue resulting in a higher risk of metabolic disease. Lipocalin 2 (LCN2) is an adipokine having a role in innate immunity and energy metabolism. It is an acute phase protein that was recently correlated with potential effects on obesity and inflammation.

The reaction of this protein to progressive exercise in animals has limited studies. Background/Purpose: NGAL (lipocalin-2), a member of the lipocalin superfamily, is expressed by a variety of cells including neutrophils, hepatocytes, alveolar epithelial cells and renal resident cells.

NGAL is a sensitive marker for tissue injury, and is upregulated following ischemia, inflammatory conditions, metabolic diseases and neoplastic disorders.

Furthermore, several studies have. Methods. This was a cross-sectional study. A total of 80 subjects were enrolled in the study and divided into two groups: Group A included 39 patients (females, n = 34) diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, and Group B (the control group) comprised 41 healthy volunteers (females, n = 38).Serum samples were obtained from each participant for the measurement of apelin and lipocalinCited by: 2.

Our aim was to determine short and medium-term changes of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) in the urine of patients undergoing shock wave lithotripsy (SWL).

In patients with kidney stones, serum urea and creatinine (Cr), urine Cr and NGAL levels were determined immediately before and at 3, 24 h and 30 days after SWL.
