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 ...
The evaluation of IMA as a cardiac ischemia marker in the cases of hypohemoglobinemia and hypoxemia due to blood loss
Objective: Although the mechanism is still not so clear, ischemia modified albumin is produced as a result of the occurrence of changes in metal binding regions on the albumin with the production of reactive oxygen species. ...
This article summarizes the literature on current definition, suggested pathogenetic mechanisms and the role of laboratory assessment in the differential diagnosis of hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) from other causes of ...

Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of cystatin C, interleukin-1b (IL-1b), and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) in the total saliva and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of periodontally healthy ...
Comparison of angiotensin-converting enzyme, malonaldehyde, zinc, and copper levels in preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a syndrome of unknown etiopathogenesis. Recent studies carried out on preeclampsia have focused on the increase in free radicals in the feto-placental unit with poor perfusion. It is believed that the ...
Evaluation of effects of ischaemia on the albumin cobalt binding (acb) assay in patients exposed to trauma
Background: In the emergency department (ED), the diagnosis of acute myocardial ischaemia is very difficult because of the absence of a rapid, reliable diagnostic test. The albumin cobalt binding (ACB) assay is a good ...
