Characteristics of insulin receptors in a human lymphoblastoid cell line (Raji).
The notion that insulin binds to a specific site on the cell membrane was first proposed many years ago. However, experimental proof of a membrane bound insulin receptor did not come until the early 1970s when biologically ...
Evaluation of the utilisation of semi-quantitative procalcitonin versus C-reactive protein for the diagnosis of infection in a Hospital paediatric population,with particular reference to utilisation in suspected bacterial meningitis.
Background: The high mortality and morbidity due to bacterial infections such as meningitis, alongside the long turnaround times for gold standard microscopy and culture testing, warrants alternative laboratory tests such ...
Apolipoprotein E allele distribution in a South African Indian female population : effect on the lipid profile.
Genetic polymorphism of apolipoprotein (apo) E has been shown to account for a significant amount of variance in plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels, thereby contributing to the incidence of cardiovascular disease across ...
A comparison of 24-hour urine versus random urine samples for determination and quantification of Bence Jones protein in a South African population.
Objectives: The International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) and College of American Pathologists recommend a 24-hour collection for Bence Jones proteins(BJP). Although a 24-hour urine collection is a definitive means to ...
