Inherited prothrombotic risk factors and cerebral venous thrombosis. (1/102)

Fifteen patients with cerebral venous thrombosis were ascertained retrospectively. Their case notes were reviewed, and stored or new blood was assayed for factor V Leiden (FVL) mutation, prothrombin gene mutation 20201A, and 5,10 methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T mutation. A clinical risk factor was identified in 13 patients--the oral contraceptive pill (5), puerperium (1), HRT (1), mastoiditis (1), dehydration (1), lumbar puncture and myelography (1), carcinoma (1), lupus anticoagulant (2). In addition, two patients had the FVL mutation and five (one of whom also had the FVL mutation) were homozygous for the MTHFR mutation. The latter showed a higher than expected frequency compared to 300 healthy controls from South Wales (OR 3.15.95% Cl 1.01-9.83). No patient had the prothrombin 20201A mutation. Two patients died and three had a monocular visual deficit following anticoagulation (13) or thrombolytic (2) treatment, but there was no association between the presence of a primary prothrombotic risk factor and outcome. These results confirm the importance of investigating patients for both clinical predisposing factors and primary prothrombotic states.  (+info)

Coordinate augmentation in expression of genes encoding transcription factors and liver secretory proteins in hypo-oncotic states. (2/102)

BACKGROUND: In the nephrotic syndrome (NS) proteins of intermediate size (40 to 200 kD) are lost into the urine resulting in a decrease in plasma albumin concentration and as a consequence a reduction in plasma colloid osmotic pressure (pi). Plasma pi has also been reported to be reduced in the condition of hereditary analbuminemia. The liver, in an apparent compensatory response, increases synthesis of a group of secreted proteins defending plasma pi. Regulation of several of these proteins, including both positive and negative acute phase proteins, is at the transcriptional level. This is the only known condition in which transcription of both positive and negative acute phase proteins (APPs) are increased simultaneously. The specific transcription factor(s) that might regulate this cascade is not defined. METHODS: RNA was extracted from livers of 5 rats with hereditary analbuminemia (the Nagase analbuminemic rat, NAR), 5 rats with NS induced by adriamycin (Adria), 5 rats with NS caused by passive Heymann nephritis (NS) and 5 control animals. The concentrations of mRNAs encoding four secreted proteins (albumin, transferrin, fibrinogen, and apo A-1), five transcription factors, early growth response factor 1 (EGRF-1), HNF-4, NGFI-C, EGR-3, and Krox20 relative to two housekeeping genes, beta actin and GAPDH were determined simultaneously using kinetic reverse transcriptase polymerase chain methodology (kRT-PCR). RESULTS: The levels of all mRNAs encoding secreted proteins except for albumin (which was reduced in NAR) were increased in NS and NAR and correlated significantly with one another. mRNA encoding EGRF 1 was increased fivefold in NS and NAR, and correlated significantly with mRNAs encoding Apo A-1, transferrin and albumin in the two NS groups. HNF-4 mRNA was increased approximately twofold in both NS groups and correlated with albumin (R = 0.881, P < 0.001), transferrin (R = 0.563, P = 0.012) and apo A-1 (R = 0.644, P = 0. 003). While fibrinogen mRNA correlated with that of each of the other secreted proteins, it did not correlate with either HNF-4 or EGRF-1 mRNA. Krox20, EGR3 and NGF1C were expressed at nearly undetectable levels. CONCLUSIONS: The hepatic response in conditions characterized by reduced plasma pi include increased levels of mRNAs encoding a group of secreted proteins, including the negative APPs albumin, transferrin and apo A-1, and the positive APP fibrinogen. Levels of mRNAs encoding negative APPs and fibrinogen correlate with one another, suggesting that they are coordinately controlled. Both EGRF-1 and HNF-4 may regulate the expression of the negative APPs, which have increased transcription in hypo-oncotic states.  (+info)

Complement fixation by rheumatoid factor. (3/102)

The capacity for fixation and activation of hemolytic complement by polyclonal IgM rheumatoid factors (RF) isolated from sera of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and monoclonal IgM-RF isolated from the cryoprecipitates of patients with IgM-IgG mixed cryoglobulinemia was examined. RF mixed with aggregated, reduced, and alkylated human IgG (Agg-R/A-IgG) in the fluid phase failed to significantly reduce the level of total hemolytic complement, CH50, or of individual complement components, C1, C2, C3, and C5. However, sheep erythrocytes (SRC) coated with Agg-R/A-IgG or with reduced and alkylated rabbit IgG anti-SRC antibody were hemolyzed by complement in the presence of polyclonal IgM-RF. Human and guinea pig complement worked equally well. The degree of hemolysis was in direct proportion to the hemagglutination titer of the RF against the same coated cells. Monoclonal IgM-RF, normal human IgM, and purified Waldenstrom macroglobulins without antiglobulin activity were all inert. Hemolysis of coated SRC by RF and complement was inhibited by prior treatment of the complement source with chelating agents, hydrazine, cobra venom factor, specific antisera to C1q, CR, C5, C6, or C8, or by heating at 56 degrees C for 30 min. Purified radiolabeled C4, C3, and C8 included in the complement source were bound to hemolysed SRC in direct proportion to the degree of hemolysis. These data indicate that polyclonal IgM-RF fix and activate complement via the classic pathway. The system described for assessing complement fixation by isolated RF is readily adaptable to use with whole human serum.  (+info)

Sialoproteinaemia: lack of correlation with inhibition of in vitro lymphoblastosis induced by phytohaemagglutinin or alloantigen. (4/102)

Elevation of serum-bound sialic acid concentration in different disease states fails to correlate significantly with suppressive serum actions in mixed allogeneic lymphocyte cultures or phyto-haemagglutinin cultures. Heat-decomplemented serum from patients with abnormal levels of bound sialic acid was added to parallel cultures containing similar blood lymphocyte populations derived from normal humans. Wide fluctuations of the rate of incorporation of tritiated thymidine into nucleoprotein indicated presence of suppressive elements other than sialoprotein in the added serum components. Serum with rising sialyl concentration derived from patients with cancer showed slight tendency to augment mixed lymphocyte and phytohaemagglutinin responses. The findings suggest that the previously documented nonspecific suppressive action of serum sialoprotein on human host lymphoblastic response to neuraminidase-treated cancer cells represents a mechanism unique to that culture system rather than a manifestation of a general immunoregulatory function of serum sialoprotein.  (+info)

1. Detailed physical, chemical, and immunologic studies of a protein closely related to the Fc fragment and heavy chain of G immunoglobulin (IgG), and elaborated by a subject with a lymphoproliferative disorder are presented. 2. The protein, which has a molecular weight of 51,000, was cleaved into two half molecules by reduction and alkylation. 3. The protein has few if any of the antigenic determinants of the antigen-binding (Fab) papain fragment of IgG, and has a striking similarity in its antigenic properties to the Fc fragment. 4. Fingerprint patterns resemble those of the crystallizable (Fc) fragment, and lack several peptides found in the heavy chain. 5. These findings suggest that the Fc fragment may be a real structural unit of IgG, and raise the possibility of the existence of three different types of polypeptide chains in G immunoglobulin.  (+info)


Aleutian disease-affected mink, which are markedly hypergammaglobulinemic, show a decreased half-life of the serum gamma globulin indicating that the hyperglobulinemia is due to increased production. No evidence that the gamma globulin was antibody to the infectious agent, to autologous or isologous tissues, or to antigens the animal was responding to prior to development of the disease was obtained. The increased gamma globulin was found to be of the 6.4S variety, and gamma globulin containing protein-protein complexes of 9S to 17S and 22S to 25S classes were observed in serums of affected mink. The findings are most consistent with the Aleutian disease virus acting as a direct and somewhat selective stimulus to plasma cell proliferation. There is no evidence that the arterial and glomerular lesions of Aleutian disease have an immunologic pathogenesis. It seems possible that these vascular changes may be directly caused by the viral agent, or may be the result of the increased gamma globulin levels.  (+info)


This study, based upon 528 laboratory examinations and 16 complete autopsies of NZB/Bl mice, deals with autoimmune manifestations (as shown by hypergammaglobulinemia, Coombs positive hemolytic anemia, and the occasional presence of lupus- and rheumatoid-like factors) and mainly with the pathology and the pathogenesis of glomerulonephritis in these mice, a model system of membranous glomerulonephritis with spontaneous and insidious onset, progression through chronic stages, and almost certainly induced by immunological, and autoimmune, mechanisms. The earliest and lasting histological change was hyaline thickening of the capillary walls and adjacent intercapillary regions of the glomerular tufts, corresponding in location to polysaccharide-rich capillary basement membrane and mesangial materials. Distributed focally and diffusely in the glomerular tuft and eventually sparing no glomerulus, hyaline, granular, and fibrillar ("spongy fiber") materials produced narrowing of capillary lumens by concentric or eccentric encroachment upon them. In the later stages hyaline lobulation and sclerosis of the glomerular tufts occurred. Thus the lesions corresponded to those seen in human focal and diffuse membranous, chronic lobular, and lastly (intracapillary) sclerosing glomerulonephritis. In all instances of glomerulonephritis the glomerular tufts contained selective localizations of mouse immunoglobulins corresponding in distribution to that of the hyaline and (PAS-positive) polysaccharide-rich materials in the focal and diffuse membranous and lobular lesions and in amounts increasing with the severity of glomerular disease. The mouse immunoglobulins were extracted from frozen sections of glomerulonephritic kidneys and were then capable of recombination with glomerular tufts in sections of autologous or isologous glomerulonephritic kidneys from which in vivo localized immunoglobulins had been extracted. The pattern of recombination with glomerular tufts was similar to that of in invo localized immunoglobulins. The extracted immunoglobulins did not show affinity for mouse red cells (in the indirect Coombs test) nor for autologous or isologous cell nuclei (in the immunofluorescence test). The serum of mice with severe glomerulonephritis contained immunoglobulins with in vitro affinity for extracted autologous or isologous glomerular tufts. Thus circulating as well as localized antibodies were demonstrated. The immunogenic materials (autoantigens) may have been formed in the glomerular tufts or accumulated in them from some other source, such as the circulating plasma; however they corresponded in location to polysaccharide-rich capillary basement membrane and mesangial materials. The spleen was identified at the cellular level as the main site of formation of autoantibodies to red cells, as well as the main site of red cell destruction. Some evidence was brought forth suggesting that these autoantibodies were "heavy" or gammaM-globulins. More studies are in progress.  (+info)

Amyloidosis may be a systemic or localized process. It may occur spontaneously or in response to chronic disease processes. Primary amyloidosis is characterized by no detectable plasma cell dyscrasia or abnormal serum proteins; secondary amyloidosis involves systemic disease, in which the breakdown of cells is protracted (2).. Primary localized amyloid deposits in bone are unusual and any bone may be involved. Skeletal amyloid deposits often have an associated soft-tissue mass that may contain variable amounts of calcification (4). The lesions grow slowly and can produce significant local destruction of bone and soft tissue. It is this tumor-like appearance and behavior that make the diagnosis difficult to establish on imaging studies (5). Primary amyloidoma involving the spine is extremely rare, and only two cases of involvement of the cervical spine have been reported. Previous reports have described various radiologic findings of spinal amyloid lesions, such as vertebral body fractures and ...
We studied the immune functions of two patients with angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy (AILD) in an attempt to determine whether the B cells were primarily hyperactive or, rather, if T cell abnormalities might underlie the B cell hyperactivity observed in these patients. We found that the B cells of the AILD patients did not proliferate spontaneously, nor were they induced to proliferate excessively by fresh normal T cells. In contrast, AILD T cells induced both autologous and allogeneic B cells to proliferate and to differentiate into Ig secreting cells. Spontaneous culture supernates of T cells obtained from each patient induced substantial proliferation of B cells (B cell-activating activity) as well as proliferation in a standard costimulatory assay (B cell growth factor activity). The culture supernate of a T cell line, which was established from one patient, showed both activities. The T cell line supernate also induced Ig production by staphylococcal A Cowan-activated B cells. None of ...

The causes of atherosclerosis are numerous, but disturbances in lipid and lipoprotein (LP) metabolism undoubtedly play a key role. Although there exist multiple forms of genetic and secondary hyperlipoproteinemias linked with premature vascular diseases there are only a few LP that need to be considered: low-density LP, β-very-low-density LP, chylomicron remnants and LP(a). In addition, low HDL levels have been found to represent an independent risk factor. Prolonged residence times of these LP lead to chemical modification and interaction with platelets, smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells and macrophages. Atherogenesis is thus a concerted action. Knowledge of the metabolic pathways of most of these LP is necessary in order to be able to specifically influence hyperlipoproteinemia with dietary measures or, ultimately, with lipid-lowering drugs.

Most patients with HH are asymptomatic; however, when patients present with symptoms, they are frequently nonspecific and include weakness, fatigue, lethargy, and weight loss. Specific, organ-related symptoms include abdominal pain, arthralgias, and symptoms and signs of chronic liver disease. Increasingly, most patients are now identified before they have symptoms, either through family studies or from the performance of screening iron studies. Several prospective population studies have shown that C282Y homozygosity is found in about 1 in 250 individuals of Northern European descent, with the heterozygote frequency seen in approximately 1 in 10 individuals. It is important to consider HH in patients who present with the symptoms and signs known to occur in established HH. When confronted with abnormal serum iron studies, clinicians should not wait for typical symptoms or findings of HH to appear before considering the diagnosis. However, once the diagnosis of HH is considered, either by an ...
The close relationship which seems to exist between lymphocytes and plasma cells has recently been the subject of much discussion.1, 2 The frequent occurrence of apparently identical serum protein abnormalities in patients with malignant lymphoma, lymphatic leukemia and multiple myeloma, as demonstrated by paper electrophoresis, has been felt to be of particular significance. The consensus seems to be that plasma cells probably represent transitional forms of lymphocytes, as had been suggested by the work of Sundberg3 and others,4 and that both are capable of synthesizing abnormal serum proteins.. Although serum proteins of the myeloma type have occasionally been reported in ...

Aims: To compare the long-term prognosis of younger and elderly patients with combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (CHC) who underwent curative resection between 1993 and 2014 at our center.. Methods: Two hundred and thirteen patients who underwent liver resection for CHC were enrolled in our study. The overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) of elderly patients (age≥60, n=52) and younger patients (age,60, n=161) were compared by multivariate analysis and propensity score matching (PSM) analysis.. Results: Among the 213 CHC patients, the elderly patients had a higher rate of worse Child-Pugh grade (P=0.027), abnormal serum albumin (P,0.001) and lymphoid metastases (P=0.024). The proportion of HBV-positive CHC patients (74.6%, 159/213) was much higher than that observed in healthy cohorts. Younger patients had a higher rate of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection compared to older patients (83.9% vs 46.2%, P,0.001). OS and DFS of the elderly and younger patients before and ...

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL, sometimes misspelled AILT) (formerly known as angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia) is a mature T-cell lymphoma of blood or lymph vessel immunoblasts characterized by a polymorphous lymph node infiltrate showing a marked increase in follicular dendritic cells (FDCs) and high endothelial venules (HEVs) and systemic involvement. Patients with this disease usually present at an advanced stage and show systemic involvement. The clinical findings typically include a pruritic skin rash and possibly edema, ascites, pleural effusions, and arthritis. Due to the systemic nature of this disease, neoplastic cells can be found in lymph nodes, liver, spleen, skin, and bone marrow. This disease was originally thought to be a premalignant condition, termed angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy, and this atypical reactive lymphadenopathy carried a risk for transformation into a lymphoma. Currently, it is postulated that the originating cell for this ...
Blood proteins, also termed plasma proteins or serum proteins, are proteins present in blood plasma. They serve many different functions, including transport of lipids, hormones, vitamins and minerals in activity and functioning of the immune system. Other blood proteins act as enzymes, complement components, protease inhibitors or kinin precursors. Contrary to popular belief, haemoglobin is not a blood protein, as it is carried within red blood cells, rather than in the blood serum. Serum albumin accounts for 55% of blood proteins, and is a major contributor to maintaining the osmotic pressure of plasma to assist in the transport of lipids and steroid hormones. Globulins make up 38% of blood proteins and transport ions, hormones, and lipids assisting in immune function. Fibrinogen comprises 7% of blood proteins; conversion of fibrinogen to insoluble fibrin is essential for blood clotting. The remainder of the plasma proteins (1%) are regulatory proteins, such as enzymes, proenzymes, and ...

Research Overview. The AHA statement reviews and grades current evidence regarding cardiometabolic effects of childrens intake of added sugars. Longitudinal studies and randomized controlled trials link added sugars, and particularly SSBs, with increased daily calorie intake, excess weight gain, and increased risk of obesity.1,2. Intervention trials of added sugars and other CVD risk factors in youth are limited, but longitudinal and cross-sectional studies support an association of high intake with abnormal serum triglyceride and HDL levels. More research is needed to evaluate the potential for sugar intake to affect nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in children. Despite the strength of evidence in adults,2,3 studies are likewise inconclusive on whether added sugars are related to insulin resistance and diabetes or blood pressure in children.1 Its possible, but not yet shown, that children who are overweight or with particular genetic polymorphisms may be more strongly affected than ...

Comments are welcomed and encouraged. The purpose of comments on our site is to expand knowledge, engage in thoughtful discussion, and learn more from readers. Criticism and skepticism can be far more useful than praise and unflinching belief. Theres an art and science to critical thinking and how to conduct yourself. Theres a multitude of fallacious appeals we could spell out, but a good rule of thumb is not to attack the person, attack the ideas. Dont look for the flaws in the person, look for the flaws in the hypothesis. Lets keep the brawling to movies depicting minor league hockey teams and political news shows.

© 2014 S. Karger AG, Basel. Objectives: Our objectives were to confirm the activity of O-MAX chemotherapy in adenocarcinoma of the stomach and esophagus, particularly the high rate of complete remission (CR) and the relation of subclinical hemolysis to CR. Patients and Methods: Twenty-five patients with metastatic esophagogastric adenocarcinoma were treated with O-MAX. Two developed cancer-related hemolytic-uremic syndrome (C-HUS); both achieved CR. Subsequent patients were monitored for serum haptoglobin for subclinical hemolysis. Results: Median survival was 16.5 months. The objective response rate was 90%, with 38% CR. Three patients achieving CR relapsed in the central nervous system and died (2 without systemic disease). Four patients have remained alive, off therapy, the longest for 20 years. Two patients developed clinical C-HUS and 5 of 8 monitored patients developed subclinical hemolysis based on abnormal serum haptoglobin. Four of the patients with subclinical hemolysis achieved CR. Of the 7

In this article the importance of blood proteins for drug dosing regimes is discussed. A simple mathematical model is presented for estimating recommended drug doses when the concentration of blood proteins is decreased. Practical guidance for drug dosing regimes is discussed and given in the form of a figure. It is demonstrated that correction of drug dosing regimes is needed only for when there is a high level of drug conjugation with blood proteins and a high degree of hypoalbuminaemia. An example of the use of this model is given.

Despite containing large amounts of potassium, there are no well-documented cases of it causing toxicity. We report two cases in which intentional ingestions of cream of tartar resulted in life-threatening hyperkalemia. In addition, we briefly review the use of cream of tartar as a historical purgative. Case Reports: In both cases, individuals ingested a large quantity of cream of tartar in an effort to clean themselves out. They manifested similar initial symptoms (vomiting), abnormal serum potassium (,8. 0 mmol/L), and EKGs with peaked T waves. Both patients were treated for hyperkalemia and recovered without complication. A search for ...

The study, published today in the journal Nature, characterised the genetic underpinnings of the human plasma proteome, identifying nearly 2,000 genetic associations with almost 1,500 proteins. Previously, there was only a small fraction of this knowledge, mainly because researchers could measure only a few blood proteins simultaneously in a robust manner.

  • People with this condition have an increased risk of developing abnormal blood clots. (
  • Other factors can raise the risk of abnormal blood clots in people with mild protein S deficiency. (
  • Purpura fulminans is characterized by the formation of blood clots within small blood vessels throughout the body. (
  • These blood clots disrupt normal blood flow and can lead to death of body tissue (necrosis). (
  • Protein S helps block the activity of (inactivate) certain proteins that promote the formation of blood clots. (
  • Individuals with this condition do not have enough functional protein S to inactivate clotting proteins, which results in the increased risk of developing abnormal blood clots. (
  • However, some people form blood clots too easily. (
  • If you tend toward excessive blood clotting or if the clots don't dissolve properly, you're said to have a blood-clotting disorder. (
  • For example, smoking, plaque on the inside of the arteries (atherosclerosis), and birth control pills can increase the risk of excessive blood clots. (
  • Since more clotting factors are in a woman's blood during pregnancy, a pregnant woman is six times more likely to develop blood clots. (
  • Also, because the uterus compresses the veins during pregnancy, the blood flow slows down as it moves through the vessels and may lead to blood clots. (
  • They may also cause small blood clots to develop within placenta tissue which could lead to a miscarriage. (
  • Although most women with these mutations have normal pregnancies, it's important to talk to your doctor about your own risk of abnormal blood clots and pregnancy complications. (
  • Must there be blood clots if i use the medical abortion for a pregnancy that is only five weeks! (
  • In short i get blood clots at the drop o. (
  • Platelets (thrombocytes) are cell-like particles in the blood that help the body form blood clots. (
  • Blood clots may form in almost any blood vessel. (
  • Blood clots in large blood vessels may affect the legs (deep vein thrombosis), brain (stroke), heart (heart attack), or lungs (pulmonary embolism). (
  • Blood clots in tiny blood vessels can affect the eyes, brain, and skin. (
  • Older people who may already have diseases that cause blood vessel damage, such as diabetes and high blood pressure , have a higher risk of complications caused by blood clots, such as transient ischemic attacks , stroke , and heart attack . (
  • This inherited condition causes an increased risk of abnormal blood clots, or thrombophilia. (
  • Although all women who are pregnant have an increased risk of developing blood clots, this risk is increased further depending on other factors, specifically, a personal or family history of clots. (
  • Blood clots cause blockages of blood vessels that decrease the blood flow to internal organs including the placenta. (
  • Although most of these conditions are inherited, you may not have a known family history of blood clots. (
  • Since clots may form with inherited thrombophilias, some women are prescribed blood-thinners during pregnancy and for 6 weeks after delivery. (
  • If HELLP syndrome is left untreated, about 25% of the women develop serious complications, such as blood clots, placental abruption, renal failure, and liver damage. (
  • I get blood clots really easy. (
  • I even have blood clots on blood thinner. (
  • In addition to anemia, people affected by CAD are more likely to experience stroke and heart attack as a result of blood clots in arteries, and deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism as a result of blood clots in the veins. (
  • When a person has hypercoagulability, they are prone to excess blood clots. (
  • In some people with WM, when the cancerous B cells make too much of this protein, the blood can become extremely thick, leading to blood clots. (
  • Factor V Leiden is a genetic mutation of the coagulation cascade Factor V. This mutation increases a person's risk of blood clots, especially in the deep veins. (
  • The hereditary types of these deficiencies are rare, but people with a deficiency of protein C or protein S are at a higher risk of blood clots for the rest of their lives, some having a blood clot at a young age. (
  • On some occasions, however, having a thick blood condition can cause symptoms in addition to blood clots. (
  • Blood clots of unknown origin, repeated blood clots, and recurrent pregnancy loss are reasons to be concerned about thick blood. (
  • Anyone experiencing these symptoms or who has a family history of thick blood or blood clots should ask their doctor for testing. (
  • This rare but serious disorder causes bone marrow to produce too many red blood cells, which often leads to blood clots. (
  • Testing is used to evaluate people who have unexplained blood clots or a family history of blood clots, especially if the blood clot occurs in a relatively young person (less than 50 years old) or has formed in an unusual location, such as the veins leading to the liver or kidney or the blood vessels of the brain. (
  • Microscopic blood in urine and protein in urine also having kidney pain? (
  • So I went to my PC and the ER and all my tests came back normal no sign of infection and I'm still having pain where my kidneys are located and my Doctor wants me to see a urologist because I've had microscopic blood in my urine for the last month and been having pain in my kidneys. (
  • Blood and protein found in urine? (
  • How does high blood pressure cause protein in urine? (
  • This problem is not simple to solve because biological material, such as cell cultures and/or tissue cultures, and also body fluids, such as urine and blood, often contain a complex of nucleic acids of which only an extremely small fraction contains the sequence of interest. (
  • It is a complication of pre-eclampsia , a disorder in pregnant women marked by high blood pressure and presence of protein in the urine (proteinuria). (
  • Physical examination followed by confirmatory blood tests and urine test are done to diagnose HELLP syndrome. (
  • Urine test determines the presence of excessive protein along with increased level of uric acid. (
  • Usually diagnosed late in pregnancy, the disorder is characterized by sharp increases in blood pressure, swelling and proteins in the urine. (
  • A disorder of pregnancy characterized by increased blood pressure, water retention, and protein in the urine. (
  • It is characterized by hyperglobulinemia, excess Bence-Jones proteins (free monoclonal IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS) in the urine, skeletal destruction, bone pain, and fractures. (
  • Conditions characterized by the presence of M protein (Monoclonal protein) in serum or urine without clinical manifestations of plasma cell dyscrasia. (
  • Ok, for the past two years I have been having trace amounts of blood in urine tests. (
  • He said there was no blood in my urine but said I can still have an cytooscopy. (
  • He said, 'This trace blood in urine can come and go and really only 5 to 10% of women with this problem develop bladder cancer. (
  • Did a another urine test and he said he saw an 'occasional red blood cell. (
  • I guess that came down to 'trace blood' in my urine). (
  • Blood Trace in Urine - Prostatitis? (
  • False positive results are due to contamination of stool sample with urine or blood, or due to more than an hour passed between sample taking and testing. (
  • The office called and said the protein in the urine is high. (
  • If the total protein in the urine appears in the normal range, how is the TP/CR ratio high? (
  • This is the first occurance of protein in the urine. (
  • Too much protein in my urine--what the heck? (
  • Finding M proteins in the blood or urine is usually a sign of disease. (
  • It can lead to a condition called Bence Jones proteinuria that causes a buildup of certain M proteins in the urine. (
  • They may also notice unusual levels of protein in your urine. (
  • If a doctor sees that your blood or urine test results show abnormal protein levels, they'll recommend further testing. (
  • Pre-eclampsia is a disorder of pregnancy where there is high blood pressure and protein in the urine. (
  • It is therefore vital to have regular antenatal checks of blood pressure and urine to detect the condition before it becomes dangerous for mother and baby. (
  • A sudden rise in blood pressure, above levels at the start of pregnancy, and protein in the urine are the main signs of pre-eclampsia. (
  • therefore regular antenatal checks of blood pressure, urine and blood tests are vital. (
  • If your blood pressure is high at your antenatal visit, you will be asked to provide a urine sample for testing. (
  • You will be asked for urine samples, possibly over 24 hours so that protein levels can be measured thoroughly. (
  • Hemophilia is an X-linked genetic disorder that primarily affects males and results in deficiencies in blood-clotting proteins. (
  • Approximately one in 5,000 males are born with hemophilia, and hemophilia A is about four times as common as hemophilia B. Both disorders are characterized by spontaneous internal bleeding and excessive bleeding after injuries or surgery. (
  • In addition, these studies showed that 67% and 82% of persons with hemophilia received care in a federally funded hemophilia treatment center (HTC), and 86% and 94% of those with the most severe cases of hemophilia (i.e., those with the lowest levels of clotting factor activity in the circulating blood) received care in a federally funded HTC. (
  • The purposes of the UDC surveillance system were to monitor human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and bloodborne viral hepatitis in persons with hemophilia, thereby tracking blood safety, and to track the prevalence of and trends in complications associated with hemophilia. (
  • Data generated from these surveillance systems have been used in the development of public health and clinical guidelines and practices to improve the safety of U.S. blood products and either prevent hemophilia-related complications or identify complications early. (
  • The company primarily focuses on products to treat hemophilia, kidney disease, immune disorders and other chronic and acute medical conditions. (
  • Bayer HealthCare is expanding its commitment to hemophilia with the acquisition of Maxygen s hemophilia program assets, including a next-generation recombinant Factor VIIa protein known as MAXY-VII. (
  • Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder caused by deficient or defective blood coagulation proteins. (
  • Our Rare Blood Disorders franchise is positioned for growth with a hemophilia portfolio, an approved treatment in Europe for acquired Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (aTTP), and the potential to launch several more therapies over the next five years, providing the opportunity to bring new therapies to patients who currently have few options. (
  • Hemophilia is a rare genetic disorder in which a person's blood does not clot normally because of insufficient levels of certain clotting factors. (
  • any bleeding or blood-clotting disorder (such as hemophilia or protein S deficiency). (
  • This episode focuses on the blood disorders resulting from Hemophilia. (
  • The term hemophilia describes hemorrhagic, or bleeding, disorders. (
  • It can occur after an injury, but is also a complication of a genetic bleeding disorder known as hemophilia. (
  • People with a bleeding disorder, like hemophilia, can't make an important protein that helps their blood clot. (
  • Because eNOS is generally found in blood vessels, its expression in neurons was an unexpected finding. (
  • Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area. (
  • Sometimes an abnormal protein or an abnormal amount of a protein in the blood causes the blood vessels to become fragile. (
  • Because of their shape, sickled red blood cells can't squeeze through small blood vessels as easily as the almost donut-shaped normal cells. (
  • This can lead to these small blood vessels getting blocked which then stops the oxygen from getting through to where it is needed. (
  • It can also check blood flow in blood vessels. (
  • This protein binds to two growth factors that play a key role in maintaining the health of blood vessels. (
  • aTTP is a rare, life-threatening, autoimmune-based, blood disorder characterized by extensive clot formation in small blood vessels throughout the body, leading to a very low platelet count, loss of red blood cells and restricted blood supply to parts of the body. (
  • Abnormal shapes of hemoglobin can alter the flow of blood through blood vessels. (
  • When the red blood cells stiffen, they contribute to blockages in blood vessels that slow or stop the flow of blood. (
  • After removal, the synovium will grow back, but will no longer be thickened with blood vessels like before. (
  • These may indicate spasms in your blood vessels and other changes to your circulation. (
  • Microscopic webs of small blood vessels called ____________ filter back the water and nutrients. (
  • Beta-thalassemia is a serious, potentially life-threatening disease that affects red blood cells, cells that carry oxygen via hemoglobin throughout the body. (
  • For the second time, researchers have used the HIV virus in gene therapy to cure a severe genetic disease, this time the blood disorder beta-thalassemia, which causes life-threatening anemia. (
  • A blood disorder that reduces levels of protein in the blood called hemoglobin (beta-thalassemia). (
  • Without regular transfusions and blood testing, the beta-thalassemia she inherited from her parents could eventually cause her to become dangerously anemic. (
  • In beta-thalassemia, genetic defects affect the production of the beta globin protein, reducing levels of hemoglobin in the blood. (
