Reference intervals for haematological and plasma biochemical parameters in sobaity sea bream juveniles ( Sparidentex hasta , Valenciennes 1830)

Abstract Sobaity sea bream (Sparidentex hasta) is distributed in the Western Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf and Oman Sea. For monitoring health status in this species in an aquaculture condition, standard reference values for haematological and plasma biochemical parameters are indispensable. Heparinized blood samples were collected from 143 healthy sobaity sea bream juveniles raised in cylindrical polyethylene tanks with filtered running seawater. Haematologic reference intervals were as follows: red blood cell (RBC) count 1.67–2.2 × 106 μL−1, total white blood cell (WBC) count 8.8–14.5 × 103 μL−1, lymphocytes 85–96 %, neutrophils 2–6 %, haemoglobin 28–60 g L−1, haematocrit (Hct) 24.5–33.8 %, mean cell volume (MCV) 126.3–191.7 fL, mean cell haemoglobin (MCH) 14.4–26.5 pg, mean cell haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) 92–180 g L−1, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) 1.5–5 mm h−1 and RBC/WBC ratio 119.2–207.5. Plasma chemistry reference intervals were as follows: total protein 3.2–3.9 g dL−1, albumin 0.3–0.58 g dL−1, globulin 2.7–3.4 g dL−1, alkaline phosphatase 444–866 U L−1, alanine aminotransferase 239–506.5 U L−1, lipase 95.5–120 U L−1,...

We thank Drs Yoon and Kim for their interest in our study and the higher risk for acute kidney injury (AKI) after open repair of juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms in patients taking statins preoperatively. Our understanding of the interaction between statins and postoperative renal function is constantly evolving, as both observational and randomized trials have met with mixed results. Importantly, previous studies showed that initiating statins in the perioperative period was associated with higher rates of postoperative AKI, whereas long-term statin use was associated with lower risk of renal complications.

Abstract The anticarcinogenic effect of statins may reduce the metastatic potential of cancer cells leading to 'stage migration', with users more likely diagnosed with early rather than late stage cancer. The association between prior statin use and colorectal cancer (CRC) stage at diagnosis in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) was investigated. The study population included 132,322 post-menopausal women, among which there were 2,628 pathologically confirmed cases of in situ (3.3%), localized (43.6%), regional (40.4%) and distant (12.7%) stage CRC, after an average of 13.9 (SD=4.7) years of follow-up. To reduce ...

Authors: Theodoropoulou S, Gialouris AG Abstract Brain is an organ with the highest lipid concentration in the body. Cellular membrane lipids can affect both the positioning and the functioning of membrane proteins, thus regulating several cell actions. Changes in the lipid composition of cell membrane can modulate the microenvironment and consequently the function of its proteins, e.g. neurotransmission. Some of the first studies on the subject have shown a negative correlation between serum cholesterol levels and depression, suicidality and behavioral disorders. Several studies -but not all- have found decreased ...

NeherAbstractLipids play a critical role in energy metabolism, and a suite of proteins is required to deliver lipids to tissues. Several of these proteins require an intricate endoplasmic reticulum (ER) quality control (QC) system and unique secondary chaperones for folding. Key examples include apolipoprotein B (apoB), which is the primary scaffold for many lipoproteins, dimeric lipases, which hydrolyze triglycerides from circulating lipoproteins, and the low-density lipop...

However, findings are inconsistent in this regard. Therefore, the aim of this study is to summarize and examine the effect of L-Arginine supplementation on lipid profiles and inflammatory markers in published randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
