Serum anion gap, bicarbonate and biomarkers of inflammation in healthy individuals in a national survey
- Trends in the Exposure of Nonsmokers in the U.S. Population to Secondhand Smoke: 1988-2002. Pirkle, James L.; Bernert, John T.; Caudill, Samuel P.; Sosnoff, Connie S.; Pechacek, Terry F. // Environmental Health Perspectives;Jun2006, Vol. 114 Issue 6, p853
The objective of this study was to describe the exposure of nonsmokers in the U.S. population to secondhand smoke (SHS) using serum cotinine concentrations measured over a period of 14 years, from October 1988 through December 2002. This study consists of a series of National Health and...
- bicarbonate. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p259
The definition of the medical term "bicarbonate," which refers to any salt containing the bicarbonate HCO3 anion, is presented.
- A re-evaluation of the urinary parameters of acid production and excretion in patients with chronic renal acidosis. Uribarri, Jaime; Douyon, Huguette; Oh, Man S. // Kidney International;Feb1995, Vol. 47 Issue 2, p624
We have studied acid-base balance in 32 patients attending the renal clinic of Mount Sinai Hospital. The parameters of acid-base balance measured included acid production measured as urinary sulfate and organic anions, net acid excretion measured as urinary ammonia plus titratable acid minus...
- Effects of high-dose cholecalciferol on serum markers of inflammation and immunity in patients with early chronic kidney disease. Alvarez, J A; Zughaier, S M; Law, J; Hao, L; Wasse, H; Ziegler, T R; Tangpricha, V // European Journal of Clinical Nutrition;Mar2013, Vol. 67 Issue 3, p264
Background/objectives:Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory and immune-regulating properties. We aimed to determine if high-dose cholecalciferol supplementation for 1 year in subjects with early chronic kidney disease (CKD) improved circulating markers of inflammation and immunity.Subjects/methods:In...
- Commercial assay for serum amyloid A in horses. // Veterinary Record: Journal of the British Veterinary Association;9/13/2008, Vol. 163 Issue 11, p318
The article discusses a research on the acute phase protein serum amyloid A (SAA), which may be a useful marker of inflammation in horses. The researchers evaluated the reliability of a commercially available immunoturbidometric method for measuring SAA in sera from clinically healthy horses and...
- High-Mobility Group Box-1 Protein and Keratin-18, Circulating Serum Proteins Informative of Acetaminophen-Induced Necrosis and Apoptosis In Vivo. Antoine, Daniel J.; Williams, Dominic P.; Kipar, Anja; Jenkins, Rosalind E.; Regan, Sophie L.; Sathish, Jean G.; Kitteringham, Neil R.; Park, B. Kevin // Toxicological Sciences;Dec2009, Vol. 112 Issue 2, p521
Drug-induced hepatotoxicity represents a major clinical problem and an impediment to new medicine development. Serum biomarkers hold the potential to provide information about pathways leading to cellular responses within inaccessible tissues, which can inform the medicinal chemist and the...

- Serum Anticholinergic Activity: A Possible Peripheral Marker of the Anticholinergic Burden in the Central Nervous System in Alzheimer's Disease. Koji Hori; Kimiko Konishi; Masayuki Tani; Hiroi Tomioka; Ryo Akita; Yuka Kitajima; Mari Aoki; Sachiko Yokoyama; Kazunari Azuma; Daisuke Ikuse; Norihisa Akashi; Misa Hosoi; Koichi Jinbo; Mitsugu Hachisu // Disease Markers;2014, p1
We review the utility of serum anticholinergic activity (SAA) as a peripheral marker of anticholinergic activity (AA) in the central nervous system (CAA). We hypothesize that the compensatory mechanisms of the cholinergic system do not contribute to SAA if their system is intact and that if...
