Associations of Nephelometry and Turbidimetry with chemical compounds

  • BACKGROUND: Citrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) turbidimetry is used for assessing pharmacodynamic effects of glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa antagonists in clinical trials [10].
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Three GP IIb/IIIa antagonists, eptifibatide, MK-0852, and GR144053, were compared in PRP (turbidimetry) and whole blood (platelet counting with an Ultra-Flo 100 Platelet Counter), with ADP and collagen used as agonists [10].
  • Since we hypothesize that the morphological changes of the few platelets that adhere to collagen might not be revealed by turbidimetry, the aim of this study was to assess platelet shape change using transmission electron microscopy, in the absence of the amplificatory feedback pathways of ADP and thromboxane A(2) [24].
  • C-reactive protein (CRP) was measured by latex-enhanced nephelometry [25].
  • These increases were found for particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 microm (PM2.5) and less than 10 microm (PM10), nephelometry, NO2, and SO2 [26].

Gene context of Nephelometry and Turbidimetry

  • Clotting was induced by addition of tissue factor to recalcified plasma in the absence or presence of TM, and clot formation was monitored using turbidimetry [27].
  • CRP was measured by nephelometry and IL-6 bioassay [28].
  • MMP-2 and MMP-9 were also measured by a zymogram protease assay. alpha2 macroglobulin (AMG) was measured by nephelometry [29].
  • C3, C4, factor B, C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen, ceruloplasmin (Cp) and alpha(1)-antitrypsin (AAT) were assayed by a rate nephelometry [30].
  • In this study, we developed an automated method for measuring SAA4 concentration in serum by kinetic nephelometry of anti-SAA4 antibody-coated latex agglutination [31].
