Serum Lipids, Proteins and Electrolyte Profiles in Rats Following Total Body Irradiation

Issue: 
Pages: 
117–21
Synopsis: 
Cumulative total body irradiation caused subtle but significant changes in serum lipids, electrolytes and protein which may be due to non-specific stress reactions. As such, they are important markers in the diagnosis of radiation induced injury.


ABSTRACT

Objective: Serum lipid and electrolyte imbalances are common in critically ill patients undergoing radiation therapy. Although multiple disease states and medication may be responsible for the development of these disorders, the aim of this research is to sequentially document the effect of total body radiation on body function utilizing the sequential changes in the serum lipids, electrolytes and protein in rats.

Predicting 24-hour Urinary Protein Excretion in Afro-Caribbean Barbadians by Comparing Urine Protein Excretion over Different Durations versus Spot Collection

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.239
Pages: 
190–4
Synopsis: 
This article highlights the investigation of appropriate means of predicting 24-hour urinary protein excretion in Afro-Caribbeans in Barbados by assessing the correlation of urinary protein excretion between actual and measured protein excretion in a 24-hour urine collection, 12-hour (am and pm) and spot (am and pm) urine collections.

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.
