  • Inflammation
  • Haptoglobin is raised as part of the acute phase response, resulting in a typical elevation in the alpha-2 zone during inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Albumin
  • There are several clusters, the first being albumin, the second being the alpha, the third beta and the fourth gamma (immunoglobulins). (wikipedia.org)
  • The high levels of AFP that may occur in hepatocellular carcinoma may result in a sharp band between the albumin and the alpha-1 zone. (wikipedia.org)
  • acid
  • Alternatively, proteases may be classified by the optimal pH in which they are active: Acid proteases Neutral proteases involved in type 1 hypersensitivity. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensitivity
  • Although the addition of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to mammography could improve sensitivity [ 1 ], a blood test would be less expensive and easier to perform on a large scale. (biomedcentral.com)
  • antithrombin
  • The potential glycosylation site at asparagine 135 is not occupied in a minor form (around 10%) of antithrombin, β-antithrombin (see Figure 1). (wikipedia.org)
  • mast
  • Although its physiological function is unclear, it can inhibit neutrophil cathepsin G and mast cell chymase, both of which can convert angiotensin-1 to the active angiotensin-2. (abcam.com)
  • Alpha 1-antichymotrypsin inhibits the activity of certain enzymes called proteases, such as cathepsin G that is found in neutrophils, and chymases found in mast cells, by cleaving them into a different shape or conformation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cardiovascular
  • Therefore, many will experience the side effects of treatment, such as for every 1000 men screened, 29 will experience erectile dysfunction, 18 will suffer urinary incontinence, 2 will have serious cardiovascular events, 1 will suffer pulmonary embolus or deep venous thrombosis, and 1 perioperative death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Human
  • 1 - 8 On the other hand, it has recently been reported that the accumulation of amyloid β (Aβ) peptides in the human lens may be related to the onset of lens opacification, 9 - 11 but this involvement in terms of etiology and Aβ levels is not fully understood. (arvojournals.org)
  • 1993). "Reaction of human chymase with reactive site variants of alpha 1-antichymotrypsin. (wikipedia.org)
  • albumin
  • There are several clusters, the first being albumin, the second being the alpha, the third beta and the fourth gamma (immunoglobulins). (wikipedia.org)
  • The high levels of AFP that may occur in hepatocellular carcinoma may result in a sharp band between the albumin and the alpha-1 zone. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • Other inflammatory mediators that can cause a rise in CRP are TGF beta 1 , and tumor necrosis factor alpha . (wikidoc.org)
  • plasma
  • No inflammatory marker (CRP, IL6, plasma alpha-1-antichymotrypsin), alone or in combination, predicted AD risk whereas the combination of high CRP and high IL6 was associated with risk of VaD (HR,2.56, 95%CI, 1.21-5.50) independently of socio-demiographic confounders, traditional risk factors and hyperhomocysteinemia. (alzrisk.org)
  • alpha chain disease the most common heavy chain disease , occurring predominantly in young adults in the Mediterranean area, and characterized by plasma cell infiltration of the lamina propria of the small intestine resulting in malabsorption with diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss, or, exceedingly rarely, by pulmonary involvement. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • activity
  • alpha-adrenergic blocking agent ( alpha-blocker ) ( alpha-blocking agent ) any of a group of drugs that selectively inhibit the activity of alpha receptors in the sympathetic nervous system. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The defects identified in the mechanical activity of the hearts from type 1 diabetic animals include alteration of Ca2+ signaling via changes in critical processes. (wikipedia.org)

  • Results
  • In contrast to the results in these cataract types, high Aβ 1-43 levels were observed in the lens epithelium of patients with COR, and a close relationship was observed between Aβ 1-43 levels and the degree of lens opacification ( R = 0.8229, n = 6). (arvojournals.org)
  • patients
  • Amyloid β 1-43 Accumulates in the Lens Epithelium of Cortical Opacification in Japanese Patients. (arvojournals.org)
  • Levels of Aβ 1-40 and Aβ 1-42 in the lens epithelium of patients with COR, NUC, PSC, RD, and WC showed no significant differences in comparison with transparent lens epithelium. (arvojournals.org)
  • Levels of Aβ 1-43 in the lens epithelium of patients with PSC and WC were not detected, and NUC and RD were slightly elevated. (arvojournals.org)
  • The levels of Aβ 1-43 were also higher in the lens epithelium of patients with mixed-cataract showing cortical opacification, and the Aβ 1-43 levels in the lens epithelium of mixed-cataract patients with cortical opacification was significantly higher than in that of mixed-cataract patients without cortical opacification. (arvojournals.org)
  • We found high levels of Aβ 1-43 accumulation in the lens epithelium of Japanese patients with cortical opacification. (arvojournals.org)
  • beta
  • As with beta-adrenergic blocking agents , alpha-blocking agents compete with the catecholamines at peripheral autonomic receptor sites. (thefreedictionary.com)
