Diagnostic value of TRACP5b expression in patients with bone tumors.
Diagnostic value of TRACP5b expression in patients with bone tumors. J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2019 Mar-Apr;33(2):557-562 Authors: Zhang Q, Cao L, Miao XD, Wu YP Abstract In order to investigate the diagnostic value of serum levels of tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b (TRACP5b) in patients with bone tumors, enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to com¬pare serum levels of TRACP5b and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in bone tumor patients (experimental group, 80 cases) and healthy controls (control group, 36 cases). It was found that the serum level of TRACP5b in the experimental group was significantly higher than that in the control group. In addition, the sensitivity and specificity of serum TRACP5b were higher than those of serum ALP in the diagnosis of bone tumors. Fur¬thermore, the serum level of TRACP5b was positively correlated with that of ALP. Therefore, it was conclud¬ed that the serum level of TRACP5b may be used as a sensitive indicator of bone tumors, and the sensitivity and specificity of TRACP5b are even higher than those of ALP in the diagnosis of bone tumors.

It can be used asynchronously for interpretation of tests (spirometry, skin tests imaging studies), and for communication of information when the simultaneous presence of provider and patient is unnecessary. Synchronous encounters can be either unscheduled and initiated on-demand by patients or they can be facilitated substitutes for in-perso...

ConclusionOur data support the concept of MDH as a distinct and rare subgroup of DH. The prevalence in our database was 2.5% in the total DH alleged patient population and 0.5% of the demonstrated DH. Skin testing and DPT are mandatory for confirming the diagnosis.
ConclusionLong-term Abatacept therapy is effective in the majority of patients with LRBA deficiency.
ConclusionThus our results showed that higher IL-37 was associated with increased insulin sensitive in elderly type 2 DM patients through suppressing the gut microbiota dysbiosis.
