Dual roles of the mineral metabolism disorders biomarkers in prevalent hemodilysis patients: In renal bone disease and in vascular calcification

. However, the time spent on HD, which includes all such events was selected as a significant independent predictor of VC. Nevertheless, it may be assumed that FGF23, as a key regulator of mineral homeostasis, connected with all previous disorders, was singled out here as a variable significantly associated with VC. Many studies reported association between PWV and VC ( 37 , 38 ). We failed to find this relationship but PWV above the cut off value of 12 was detected in only five patients and all of them had the highest VC score of 8. Multivariate linear regression

Effects of ketosis in dairy cows on blood biochemical parameters, milk yield and composition, and digestive capacity

adipose tissue suggested increased content of milk fat and changed milk fatty acid composition, and also caused decreased milk protein content ( 6 , 25 ). Several authors reported that ketosis decreases both milk lactose yield and lactose percentage ( 4 ), and high availability of blood glucose and a cow’s positive metabolic energy status are always translated into high milk lactose yield and lactose percentage ( 18 ). A high milk fat : protein ratio is considered to be a signifier of a high risk of ketosis in dairy cattle ( 2 ). Research described cut-off points for

Sustainable intensification of agricultural production: a review of four soil amendments

transformation rates. In general, liming promotes N fixation by the soil microbial community ( Holland et al., 2018 ). The effects on N mineralization are less clear-cut. N mineralization has been reported to increase, decrease, or remain unchanged ( Bailey et al 1995 ; Kemmitt et al., 2006 ; Wachendorf et al., 2015 ) but probably ameliorates with repeated lime applications ( Holland et al., 2018 ); however, if augmented, also availability for plant uptake increases and crop yields can benefit correspondingly, but N losses via nitrate leaching into groundwater can be spurred

A New Technique for The Therapy of Complicated Deep Tissue Infection (with 4 Cases)

the gap of sartorius in right limb. A large amount of pus flowed out, and the body temperature reached 39.5°C. 2.2 Methods A total of 5 self-made double perfusion cannulas were cut into the required lengths and placed at the lowest point of the standing position and the lateral position, while rinsing with normal saline to keep low negative pressure suction. The drainage tube was replaced every 2 days. 2.3 Results On the second day, the patient’s body temperature returned to normal; on the seventh day, the scrotum and the sinus of the sartorius gap

Effect of muramyl dipeptide and alum adjuvants on immunization with Filarial multi antigen peptide vaccine in mice model

periodically after immunization and stored at -80 °C and the antibody titer was determined by ELISA, in which 96-well microtiter plates (Immulon2, Dynatech, VA, USA) were coated with 100 ng/well of respective antigen. The plates were blocked with 5 % skimmed milk, after washing with PBST and PBS, a 2 fold serial dilution from 1:500 to 1:64000 were performed using respective antisera. The antibody titer was determined by fixing a cut-off value which was obtained by the mean plus 3SD of the OD value of pre-immune serum. The highest dilution of the antiserum that showed an OD

Effects of polymyxin B on clinical signs, serum TNF-α, haptoglobin and plasma lactate concentrations in experimental endotoxaemia in sheep

the preservation of peroxidase activity of haemoglobin procedure, which is directly proportional to the amount of Hp (Tridelta Development Ltd., Ireland). The lowest measuring interval of this test has been determined as 15.6 mg/L by the manufacturer. Tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) was measured in serum by a solid phase sandwich ELISA (product no. AbC 606 Eurobio AbCys S.A., France). For TNF-α, a cut-off point of 129 ng/L represented 96% sensitivity and 93% specificity. Measurement of lactate was performed in plasma taken from potassium oxalate/sodium fluoride
