The association between ischemia modified albumin and placental histopathology in uncomplicated term deliveries
Ischemia modified albumin (IMA) is a marker of ischemia elevated in different clinical conditions and its use for hypoxia in perinatology is of current interest. We aimed to investigate the association between maternal ...
Maternal and umbilical cord ischemia-modified albumin levels in nonreassuring fetal heart rate tracings regarding the mode of delivery
Objective: To evaluate umbilical cord blood ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels in cases of fetal distress (FD) and to explore fetal blood IMA levels regarding the route of delivery. Methods: Umbilical cord and ...

Objective: The objective of this study is to investigate the urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL) levels in the second trimester of pregnant patients at the time of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) ...
The association of urinary albumin excretion and metabolic complications in polycystic ovary syndrome
Objective:This study was planned to screen polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) women for albuminuria and to evaluate the association between urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and metabolic disturbances of PCOS. In addition, ...

Ischemia modified albumin in perinatology
Ischemia modified albumin is a novel marker of ischemia generated due to hypooxygenation and increased hydroxyl free radicals in low pH. The molecule has been licenced for clinical use as an early marker for acute coronary ...
Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin levels during pneumoperitoneum
Background and Objectives: A temporary deterioration in renal function during pneumoperitoneum has been reported, but the extent is not known. A new marker for the early detection of renal injury, neutrophil ...
