Although many clinical trials have showed that metformin improves non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is a common liver disease associated with hepatic enzyme abnormalities, an animal model is required to investigate the effects of altered gene expression and post-translational processing (proteins) in mediating the observed responses.

Various frequencies of anti-cardiolipin antibodies reported in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and other autoimmune and infectious diseases necessitates the need for standardization of the immunoassay. We report here the usefulness of "no-antigen" control for each serum in determining the actual value of the anti-phospholipid antibodies. This(More)
OBJECTIVE Nonenzymatic reaction of protein and carbohydrate produce a series of brown fluorescent advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs). However, a convenient and rapid assay for serum AGEs level is currently unavailable. METHODS We raised AGEs-specific polyclonal antibodies, which were used to develop a fully automated, noncompetitive, homogeneous,(More)
Controversies exist as to the differences in the specificities of phospholipid antibodies in SLE and syphilis. We report an ELISA assay that could distinguish phospholipid antibodies associated with SLE and syphilis based on their differential reactions with phosphatidyl choline and VDRL antigens. Antibodies to phospholipid from patients with SLE reacted(More)
