Overall, the staining reactions correlated with the AAS data, but the solochrome azurine stain was positive more often than was the aluminon stain, and the stains have the advantage over AAS in that they indicate the location as well as the presence of excess bone aluminium.
Nephrotoxicity in survivors of Wilms' tumours in the North of England
Current and past treatment for Wilms' tumour does not have any clinically important nephrotoxic effect in the majority of patients, and this finding will enable paediatric oncologists to reassure patients and parents that treatment for Wilkinson's tumour rarely causes long-term renal impairment.
Fasting homocysteine levels in adults with type 1 diabetes and retinopathy.
Colorimetric assay of glycoprotein glycation free of interference from glycosylation residues.
It is found that borohydride reduction before periodate oxidation increases the amount of formaldehyde released in proportion to the extent of glycation, irrespective of the degree of glycosylation.
Relation between raised concentrations of fucose, sialic acid, and acute phase proteins in serum from patients with cancer: choosing suitable serum glycoprotein markers.
Serum fucose was raised more often in patients with advanced disease than in those in whom the spread of the tumour was more restricted; increased sialic acid concentrations, however, were found with a similar frequency in both these groups.

The serum zinc concentrations were lower in the anencephalic pregnancies than in the normal control subjects and the serum zinc levels in women whose pregnancies terminated in a spontaneous abortion were normal.
Serum alkaline phosphatase isoenzyme patterns in patients with chronic renal failure.
LACTATE DEHYDROGENASE ISOENZYMES IN FOETAL AND NEONATAL TISSUES.
Using starch-gel electrophoresis combined with visual demonstration of the isoenzyme patterns, the usual five zones of activity in human tissues are detected, termed LDl, LD2, LD3, LD4 and LD5 where, according to the terminology, the latter is the isenzyme which migrates furthest towards the anode and is most prominent in heart muscle.
Assessment of chemotherapy-associated nephrotoxicity in children with cancer
A comprehensive but simple investigatory protocol that enables assessment of the nature and severity of nephrotoxicity in children is described, which can be performed without admission to hospital.
