We have previously reported a correlation between the extent of ragweed allergen (RWA)-induced in vitro serum complement activation and the symptom scores registered daily during the ragweed (RW)-blooming season in RW-allergic patients. The present study was performed in 22 15-17-year-old RW-allergic adolescents. Serum samples were incubated with 100(More)
Red cell indices and formulas have been established as simple, fast, and inexpensive means for discrimination between the β-thalassemia (β-thal) trait and iron deficiency. However, there were no reports of the diagnostic reliability of different red cell indices and formulas in discrimination of β-thal trait from iron deficiency in the Thai population. The(More)
The effect of conditioned media of 3-day cultures of blast cells from peripheral blood of 5 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (CM-AML) was studied on the synthesis of C2, factor B (Bf) and C1 esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) by human monocyte-macrophage cultures and HepG2 hepatoma cell line. The level of C2 in the culture supernatants was measured by immune(More)
We have previously found low levels of C1 and C4 INH in the sera of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients. Hypocomplementaemia was supposed to be the consequence of a permanent activation of the classical pathway. We have compared the levels of C1 INH-C1rC1s and C1q-FN complexes in the sera of 95 CLL patients and 100 healthy controls, because these(More)
Serum C2 complement levels were measured in 17 children suffering from CF, 17 with obstructive bronchitis, and 7 control children. No correlation was found between the C2 level and the clinical stage in Shwachman score, the HLA B7 or B18 antigens and the ventilation functional parameters. The mean serum C2 complement level did not differ in the three(More)
Hematological effects of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in HIV-infected patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency are unclear. The aim of this study was to assess effects of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on hematological and plasma bilirubin changes in these patients. A hundred and nine HIV-infected Thai patients were(More)
Overall activity of classical complement pathway, C3 and C4 levels, level of circulating immune complexes and concentration of serum immunoglobulins were measured in 38 patients transplanted with HLA-identical bone marrow before and after transplantation for at least 4 years. Changes of complement parameters and their association with acute and chronic GVHD(More)
