Introduction Our aim was to compare analytical specifications of two assays (monoclonal vs. polyclonal) for free light chains (FLCs) quantification optimized for two different analytical platforms, nephelometer ProSpec (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany) and turbidimetric analyser Optilite (The Binding Site, Birmingham, UK).
Abstract Objectives The anti-HBc prevalence over a 14-years period (2004–2017), trends, infectivity, residual risk, and need for testing in blood donors (BD) of the Croatian Institute of Transfusion Medicine were assessed. Material and methods Anti-HBc was tested in 19,969 BD serum samples collected in 2004 (N = 7561), 2013 (N = 7318) and 2017 (N = 5090). All serums were initially screened for HBsAg, anti-HCV, HIV Ag/Ab, and anti-TP. 2013 and 2017 samples were also tested by ID-NAT. Results Over...

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain syndrome with number of symptoms that present challenge in terms of diagnosis and treatment. Patients with FM show abnormal profile of purines in plasma. In this work, we measured serum activities of enzymes involved in purine metabolism, namely total adenosine deaminase (ADE) and its isoforms (ADE1 and ADE2), ecto-ATPase, and 5′-nucleotidase (5′-NT). We also measured activity of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) and prolyl endopeptidase (PEP). Spectrophotometri...

Abstract Objectives Heat shock proteins (Hsps) are produced by all cells, including vascular, to ensure stress protection. Damaged cells release Hsps in their local environment and systemic circulation. The aim of this study was to investigate the involvement and prognostic utility of serum Hsp60 and Hsp70, and the respective antibodies anti-Hsp60 and anti-Hsp70 in subjects with advanced atherosclerosis resulting in high degree of cerebrovascular stenosis. Design and methods Ultrasound Doppler e...

Inhibition of Hsp90 is a promising therapeutic approach with clinical relevance for treatment of specific tumour types since both Hsp90 homologous (Hsp90α and Hsp90β) account for maturation and functional stability of a plethora of polypeptides (Hsp90 client proteins), including many proteins involved in tumorigenesis (e.g. antiapoptotic and signaltransduction proteins, transcription factors, Tyrkinase receptors, etc.). Galectin3, a βgalactoside lectin is a multifunctional protein, ubiquitously ...
