Hypodysfibrinogenemia is the least frequently reported congenital fibrinogen disorder, characterized by both quantity and quality defects of fibrinogen. In this study, we investigated the molecular basis of hypodysfibrinogenemia in a Chinese family. Functional fibrinogen was measured by Clauss method, and the antigenic fibrinogen was measured by immunoturbidimetry assay. All the exons and exon-intron boundaries of fibrinogen genes (FGA, FGB and FGG) were analysed by direct DNA sequencing. To further evaluate its molecular and functional characterizations, fibrinogen was purified from the plasma of propositus, then SDS-PAGE, fibrin polymerization, clot lysis, and electron microscopy scanning were all performed...

This study aims to explore the associations between FVII gene polymorphisms (R353Q, 5'F7, and -402G/A) and lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (LEDVT) in a Chinese Han population. LEDVT patients (153) and healthy people (174) were, respectively, as case and control groups and evaluated related biochemical indicators. Gene polymorphisms of R353Q, 5'F7, and -402G/A of FVII, serum FVII level, antithrombin activity, plasma fibrinogen content, and plasma D-dimer (D-D) level were determined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP), ELISA, chromogenic substrate assay, coagulating assay, and Immunoturbidimetry assay, respectively...

Objective: To investigate the effects of intermittent hypoxia (IH) exposure on renal tubular epithelial cell injury and autophagy in rats. Methods: A total of 12 Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into two groups: normal control (NC) group and IH group, with 6 rats in each group. An IH animal model was established to observe the effects of IH on renal tubular epithelial cell damage and autophagy in rats. Microalbumin (mAlb) was detected by immunoturbidimetry. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and kidney injury molecule-1(KIM-1)in urine were assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test...

Hypertension constitutes one of the major metabolic disease in Nigeria especially among military personnel and their families. Myocardial infarction and other cardiovascular diseases may occur in this group of patient due to uncontrolled or poorly controlled hypertension. The objective of this study was to determine serum cardiac Troponin I (cTnI), levels in hypertensive Nigerian Military service personnel attending clinic in a military Health facility.  We measured the serum levels of cTnI in 126 hypertensive subjects [76 males (19-73 years) and 50 females (26-77years)] and 82 normotensive controls [41 males (19-60years) and 41 females (18-53years)] using Latex Enhanced Immunoturbidimetry technique...

INTRODUCTION: Gestational impaired glucose tolerance (GIGT) is a milder form of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which is often poorly managed. Although, GDM is known to be associated with increased incidence of thyroid dysfunction, no study has been done to study the effect of GIGT on thyroid status and its effect on fetal outcome. Here, we carried out a study to assess thyroid function and glycemic status in both maternal and cord blood of the subjects with GIGT, and to find their association with the fetal outcome...

BACKGROUND: It is well known that ABO blood group system incompatible kidney transplantation (ABOi-KT) is an effective strategy for end-stage renal disease. The main barrier for ABOi-KT is how to keep host B cell activation and blood group antibody titer in low levels. Moreover, the mechanism of B cell activation induced by blood group antigen was unclear in ABOi-KT. RESULTS: In this study, HK2 cells were identified to express blood group B antigen when cocultured with lymphocytes of blood group A...

BACKGROUND: Coagulation disorders contribute to the development of livedoid vasculopathy (LV). Elevated plasma levels of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] are an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease and associated with hypercoagulable states. Increased serum Lp(a) levels have been reported in patients with LV and may have an important role in the pathogenesis of LV. OBJECTIVES: To investigate Lp(a) expression in skin lesions and circulating serum Lp(a) levels in patients with LV...

PURPOSE: Chronic inflammation is involved in retinitis pigmentosa (RP). We demonstrated previously that intraocular inflammatory levels, as measured by slit-lamp ophthalmoscopy or laser flare photometry, are inversely correlated with central visual function in patients with RP. Here, we investigated the relationship between serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and visual parameters in RP. METHODS: We studied 58 consecutive typical patients with RP <40 years old and 29 age- and gender-matched controls...
