TNF-α and IL-6 as biomarkers of impaired lung functions in dimethylacetamide exposure

Introduction The acute and chronic effects of industrial solvent exposure on the burden of occupational and environmental lung diseases are remarkable ( 1 , 2 ). The harmful effects of these agents have been demonstrated in many diseases including cancer, chronic renal failure, peripheral or central neurotoxicity and developmental anomalies ( 3 , 4 ). Dimethylacetamide (DMAc) is an industrial solvent that is widely used in various applications in agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, production of human-made fibres, industrial coatings and films ( 5 ). As it

Peripheral neural response and sex hormones in type 1 gaucher disease

of Belgrade (decision number 29/III-12 from 27.03. 2015.). Data aquisition methods The algorithm for setting the GD diagnosis included clinical findings, assessment of biomarker activity followed by determination of specific enzyme activity and was confirmed by identification of GBA1 gene mutations. Biochemistry The activity of the biomarker chitotriosidase in serum was measured spectrofluorometrically using the fluorogenic substrate 4-methyl-umbelliferyl-β-D-N-N’-N”-triacetylchitotrioside (Sigma Chemical Co, USA) on an SPF-500™C spectrofluorometer

Determination of steroid esters in hair of slaughter animals by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry

water and dried for 12 h at ambient temperature. Subsequently, the hair fibres were cut into smaller pieces of about 0.5 cm with scissors and ground in a mortar in liquid nitrogen to obtain a powder. The hair samples were stored in a frozen state until laboratory analysis, directly before which they were brought to room temperature. The sample preparation process before instrumental analysis was carried out according to the protocol described below. A total of 200 mg (± 2 mg) of shredded hair was weighed and placed in a 10 mL glass centrifuge tube. Internal
