The rate at which the acute phase protein response occurred after both major and minor surgery was explored. Increases in the plasma concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP), alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (alpha 1 AG) and fibrinogen were not detected until 6-8 h after the initial incision. The peak concentration of CRP occurred at 48 h and that of fibrinogen(More)
In differential activation, advantage is taken of the different sensitivity of the various organelles towards digitonin which is added in uitro to liver homogenates (HuybrechtsGodin & Jacques, 1974). The method can be applied to the localization of exogenous material without parallel treatment by ancillary lysosomotropic compounds. Table 2 illustrates the(More)
The activity of paraoxonase in serum was found to be bimodally distributed, both in a control group and in a group of patients who had suffered myocardial infarction. Activity in the myocardial infarct group was significantly lower than in the control group. Low paraoxonase activity in serum may provide an indication of susceptibility to the development of(More)
Sequential changes in albumin, transferrin, alpha 1-acid glycoprotein, C reactive protein, fibrinogen, copper, iron, and zinc in plasma up to 24 h after hysterectomy were measured. No increases in the concentrations of the acute phase proteins alpha 1-acid glycoprotein, C reactive protein, and fibrinogen were observed until 6 h after the skin incision.(More)
Alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1) isoenzymes in serum may be determined by multicomponent analysis of the enzyme activities in the presence of multiple inhibitors. To determine inhibition coefficients of the isoenzymes, we used multiple linear regression analysis to compare alkaline phosphatase activities in the presence of known inhibitors with(More)
