Effect of Simvastatin and Relationship between Bilirubin and Blood Lipid Level in Patients with Glucocorticoid-resistant Nephrotic Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.021
Synopsis: 
This study further confirms that steroids combined with statins were treated NS mainly due to steroids effect to reduce blood lipid without superimposed effect and chose nephrotic patients who were resistant to glucocorticoid so as to ensure the effect of statins.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between bilirubin levels and hyperlipidemia in patients with glucocorticoid-resistant nephritic syndrome (NS).

Proteins and Liver Function Changes in Rats Following Cumulative Total Body Irradiations

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.174
Pages: 
773–7
Synopsis: 
Cumulative total body irradiation caused subtle but significant changes in liver function enzymes and proteins which may be due to non-specific stress reactions; as such they are important markers in radiation induced injury diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Total body irradiation (TBI) is a choice therapy for the management of some malignancies; it is also a major cause of oxidative stress. The aim of this research is to sequentially document the effect of total body radiation on body function utilizing the sequential changes in liver function enzymes and proteins in rats.
