Hyperghrelinemia has been described in PWS long before the development of obesity. Ghrelin is found in both acylated (AG) and unacylated (UAG) forms in the circulation.(More)
A routine screening of monoclonal gammopathies (M.G.) was performed in the serum from 36, 015 blood donors by cellulose acetate electrophoresis. The incidence of M.G. was estimated to 0.14 per cent. About 86 per cent of cases can be classified as asymptomatic M.G. and 14 per cent as malignant M.G. (myeloma or Waldenström macroglobulinemia). In asymptomatic(More)
Routine screening of monoclonal gammapathies (M.G.) was performed on the serum of 13,914 blood donors by cellulose acetate electrophoresis. Twenty-six cases of M.G. were detected corresponding to a frequency of 0.19 per cent. The incidence of the M.G. progresses with increasing age comparatively to the age distribution of the blood donors under(More)
