γ-glutamyl transferase isoenzyme II (GGT-II) is a sensitive biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, numerous disadvantages of the traditional manual method affected its application. The commercial kit provided a convenient and fast method for the determination of GGT-II levels. The purposes of the present study were to compare the(More)
The purpose of these experiments was to determine whether flurothyl-induced status epilepticus causes progressive decline of brain high-energy phosphates and progressive increase in brain lactate in neonatal dogs who are paralyzed and oxygenated. In vivo 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic measurements showed that the fall in brain pH occurred(More)
It is assumed that when anticonvulsants arrest seizure, there is rapid return of brain high energy phosphates and brain lactate to control values. To test this hypothesis, diazepam was administered to neonatal dogs during flurothyl-induced seizure. In vivo 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy disclosed that diazepam quickly arrested electrographic(More)
Golgi protein 73 (GP73) is a resident Golgi type II transmembrane protein that has been reported to markedly increase in chronic liver disease, particularly in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, it remains unclear as to whether serum GP73 represents a reliable serum marker for the diagnosis of HCC. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the(More)
