  2. Vitamin D and immune function in chronic kidney disease

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:135 (2015) PMID 26291576

    The common causes of death in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients are cardiovascular events and infectious disease. These patients are also predisposed to the development of vitamin D deficiency, which leads to an increased risk of immune dysfunction. Many extra-renal cells possess t...
  3. Impact of automation on mass spectrometry

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:298 (2015) PMID 26341893

    Mass spectrometry coupled to liquid chromatography (LC–MS and LC–MS/MS) is an analytical technique that has rapidly grown in popularity in clinical practice. In contrast to traditional technology, mass spectrometry is superior in many respects including resolution, specificity, multipl...
  4. Heptadecanoylcarnitine (C17) a novel candidate biomarker for newborn screening of propionic and methylmalonic acidemias

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:342 (2015) PMID 26368264

    Background 3-Hydroxypalmitoleoyl-carnitine (C16:1-OH) has recently been reported to be elevated in acylcarnitine profiles of patients with propionic acidemia (PA) or methylmalonic acidemia (MMA) during expanded newborn screening (NBS). High levels of C16:1-OH, combined with o...
  5. Increased serum chemerin concentrations in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome: Relationship between insulin resistance and ovarian volume

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:366 (2015) PMID 26387454

    Background Chemerin has been linked to adiposity, and insulin resistance (IR) which are the common characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Chemerin also shows inhibitory action on follicular steroidogenesis. We investigated the associations between chemerin and I...
  6. Interictal plasma pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide levels are decreased in migraineurs but remain unchanged in patients with tension-type headache

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:151 (2015) PMID 26296898

    Background Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is associated with migraine phase; however, whether PACAP levels could be used to distinguish between migraine and tension-type headache (TTH) remains unknown. We compared interictal plasma PACAP levels amo...
  7. Assay of serum CEACAM1 as a potential biomarker for breast cancer

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:277 (2015) PMID 26343926

    Background Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1) is a widely expressed multi-functional adhesion molecule reported to serve as a serum biomarker in several types of cancer. However, the serum CEACAM1 expression in breast cancer is unclear. We inv...
  8. The association between carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios of human hair and metabolic syndrome

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:72 (2015) PMID 26238186

    Background It has been reported that stable isotope ratios can be used as biomarkers for animal protein intake. Meat consumption and high protein intake could be risk factors for metabolic disorders. We investigated whether the stable isotope ratios of carbon and nitrogen are...
  9. Utility of presepsin (sCD14-ST) as a diagnostic and prognostic marker of sepsis in the emergency department

    Clinica Chimica Acta 450:169 (2015) PMID 26296897

    Background Presepsin (PSEP) is released during infectious diseases and can be detected in the blood. PSEP has shown promising results as sepsis marker. We examined the diagnostic and prognostic validity of PSEP in patients suspicious of sepsis on admission in the emergency de...
