The clinical usefulness of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) depends crucially on the accuracy and precision of its assay. When we compared an immunological bench-top analyzer (DCA 2000, Bayer Diagnostici, Milan) to the high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) reference method used in a routine hospital laboratory (Diamat and Fast Diamat, Bio-Rad Lab.,(More)
Proteins are susceptible to free radical damage. We measured advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP) in the plasma of 56 hospitalised patients. Concentrations of AOPP were expressed as chloramine-T equivalents by measuring absorbance in acidic conditions at 340 nm in the presence of potassium iodide. We also determined erythrocyte sedimentation rate(More)
Stroke is the second single highest cause of death in Europe. The low reliability of animal models in replicating the human disease is one of the most serious problems in the field of medical and pharmaceutical research about stroke. The standard models for the study of ischemic stroke are often poorly predictive as they simulate only partially the human(More)
