Exhaled acetone as a new biomaker of heart failure severity.
Ex exhaled breath acetone not only is a promising noninvasive diagnostic method of HF with an accuracy equivalent to BNP but also a new biomarker of HF severity. Expand
Impact of Exhaled Breath Acetone in the Prognosis of Patients with Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF). One Year of Clinical Follow-up
High EBA levels could be associated to poor prognosis in HFrEF patients and in a multivariable cox regression model, the independent predictors of all-cause mortality were systolic blood pressure, respiratory rate and EBA Levels. Expand
Exhaled Breath Analysis in Heart Failure
This review presents the main breath HF biomarkers, which reflect metabolic changes that occur in this complex syndrome and discusses the diagnostic and prognostic value of exhaled breath compounds for HF. Expand
DNA Adduct Formation in the Lungs and Brain of Rats Exposed to Low Concentrations of [13C2]-Acetaldehyde.
It is shown that [13C2]-acetaldehyde induces DNA modification with the formation of isotopically labeled 1, N2-propano-2'-deoxyguanosine adducts in the brain and lungs of rats exposed to concentrations of acetaldehyde found in the atmosphere of megacities. Expand
Quantification of DNA adducts in lungs, liver and brain of rats exposed to acetaldehyde.
The monitoring of 1,N(2)-propanodGuo levels in tissues provides important information on acetaldehyde genotoxicity and may contribute to the elucidation of the mechanisms associated with acetaldehyde exposure and cancer risk. Expand
Exhaled breath acetone for predicting cardiac and overall mortality in chronic heart failure patients
The aim is to evaluate the role of EBA for predicting cardiac and overall mortality in chronic HF patients and to identify new biomarkers of heart failure diagnosis and prognosis. Expand
Chemical Analysis of Household Oxygen-Based Powdered Bleach: An Engaging Approach to Teaching Sampling of Heterogeneous Materials and Addressing Statistics
Crucial steps of a chemical analysis, such as sampling, determination, and statistical analysis of data, are addressed in a well-tested and stimulating laboratory activity that convincingly unveilsExpand
