OBJECTIVE This study assessed the diagnostic performance and prognostic properties of C-reactive protein (CRP), copeptin and cortisol in individuals with sickle cell anaemia (SCA). DESIGN Prospective case-control study. METHODS Sixty consecutive SCA subjects (18-40 years) comprising 30 subjects in the steady state and 30 subjects in vaso-occlusive(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormal lipid homeostasis has been reported in sickle cell anaemia (SCA) as well as in other haematological disorders. However, there is little information on the lipid profile of SCA subjects in vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC). This study determined the lipid profile of adult SCA subjects in VOC and in steady state (SSCA). MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
It is well known that individuals with SCA undergo constant physiological stress even, in steady state. However, there is little information on the relationship between the severity of sickle cell anaemia (SCA) and serum levels of biomarkers of stress. This study therefore determined the serum levels of copeptin, cortisol and CRP in adults with SCA in(More)
Trypanosomiasis is a debilitating disease in man and animals which has adversely affected economic and social well-being of sub-Saharan Africans. Haematological parameters were determined in fifty (50) male albino rats, in which thirty five (35) were infected with Typanosoma brucei brucei and the effects of this condition was assessed on peripheral blood(More)
Monitoring individuals with HIV infection/AIDS requires the use of expensive tools, which are not readily available in resource-limited settings. The high cost of CD4 count estimation in resource-limited countries is a major challenge in initiating patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). This study was initiated to ascertain the(More)
