    Investigation of copper status can be a diagnostic challenge. The non-caeruloplasmin-bound copper (NCC} has deficiencies; accordingly, the copper:caeruloplasmin ratio has been suggested as an alternative index of copper status. A reference interval for this index was derived. In addition to...

    Background: The assessment of copper status is difficult. When investigating excess and deficient copper states, healthcare professionals usually assume that the locally available caeruloplasmin and copper assay results are comparable to data from the literature. Objective: To investigate the...

    Background: The diagnosis of copper deficiency and excess states is challenging. It was hoped that the non-caeruloplasmin-bound ("free") copper would reduce this difficulty; however, it has its own problems. The copper/ caeruloplasmin ratio has been advocated as an alternative index of copper...

    Hephaestin is a vertebrate multicopper ferroxidase important for the transfer of dietary iron from intestinal cells to the blood. Hephaestin is mutated in the sex-linked anemia mouse, resulting in iron deficiency. However, sex-linked anemia mice still retain some hephaestin ferroxidase activity....
