A method has been devised for the meaable of dete#{233}tingpatients with the latent surement of uroporphyrinogen I syndisease who have normal urinary #{244}thetase ih red cells. By using trichloroacetic aminolevulinic acid and porphobilinogen acid as a pfoteln frecipitant, heme is reexcretion. It also appears to distinguish moved from the final solution, allowing other typos of porphyria from acute inaccurate measurement of porphynns. The termittent porphyria. The mean value of method is highly… CONTINUE READING
