Laboratory studies in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract

In recent years revealed a clear trend towards increased incidence of digestive system. This explains the need for continuous improvement of existing methods of diagnosis, and the creation and development of new and previously used methods to detect the disease at an early stage, to assess the degree of organ damage and monitor the results of the therapy. Laboratory methods for the diagnosis of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract can assess changes in homeostasis. But what exactly say...

Deciphering immunograms – immune system cells and Ig

Immunogram – a blood test, which investigated the components of the immune system. It takes into account the number of cells (white blood cells, macrophages, or phagocytes), their percentage and functional activity, as well as the “stuff” that these cells produce – immunoglobulins (Ig) class A, M, G, E, components of the complement system. Sometimes in the immunological define “pathological antibodies” – antinuclear factor, rheumatoid factor, antibodies...

B-lymphocytes

B-lymphocytes

To isolate B cells from the total lymphocyte population using a modification of the rosette (by which in the last issue, we evaluated the distribution of T-cells). This method is called the EAC-rosette. The method consists in the following. On the surface of B-lymphocytes have a receptor for complement component C3. Complement – a group of serum proteins that serves to kill bacteria. To identify a receptor for C3 complement component studied lymphocytes mixed with specially treated...

Triglycerides – this is what is commonly in use is called fat. Triglycerides = glycerol + 3 fatty acids. Glycerin – is a polyol, a well-known women as an integral part of many...

“Some of the indicators have puzzled me by its absence ….” The reasons for this may be several: laboratory was originally going to do these tests (the boxes appeared in the list, which inscribe the answer), but then because of various reasons (lack of demand, lack of reagents, etc.) changed her mind, and the form has not changed This analysis is done by special arrangement and a separate board This analysis is done for special reasons, since its inclusion in the overall...
