Fluorescence spectra of plasma porphyrin were measured in 6 patients with the acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), 30 patients with variegate porphyria (PV), 2 patients with hereditary coproporphyria, 2 patients with porphyria cutanea tarda, and in 6 patients with erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP). It was found that the excitation and emission wavelengths at which maximum fluorescence is seen may help to diagnose and differentiate PV and EPP. In patients with AIP spectrum characteristic for… Expand
Rapid screening test for porphyria diagnosis using fluorescence spectroscopy
Porphyrias are rare genetic metabolic disorders, which result from deficiencies of enzymes in the heme biosynthesis pathway. Depending on the enzyme defect, different types of porphyrins and hemeExpand
Concentration of porphyrins in rat liver and kidneys repeated administration of hexabromobenzene and tetrabromobisphenol-A
The aim of this study was to complete research on the porphyrogenic effect of hexabrombenzene (HBB) and tetrabromobisphenol-A (TBBP-A). Experiments were performed on female Wistar rats. The examinedExpand
