The activity of cholestatic enzymes in viral hepatitis B

The examination of 5-cholestasis indicating enzymes was carried out in patients with viral B hepatitis. The changes in activity of such enzymes: alkaline phosphatase, its liver isoenzyme, gamma glutamyltranspeptidase, 5'nucleotidase, leucine aminopeptidase and alanine aminopeptidase were estimated as for being useful in discovering the states of cholestasis. Already in the first week of observation all examined enzymes showed the highest level of activity, only in the case of FZ and FW, however the difference between the patients with and without cholestasis were markedly static. In the following weeks the differences in average activities between group with and without cholestasis were present in the case of 5'N and LAP. The activity of GGTP and AAP were high in both groups of patients. And so alkaline phosphatase is the enzyme which discovers the states of cholestasis in viral B hepatitis quickly and markedly.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
