In addition to and consistent with the survival data reported today, updated assessments of platelet count, lactate dehydrogenase and haptoglobin - all markers of TMA activity - continue to demonstrate clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements in the HCT-TMA patients treated with OMS721.
Substantial and statistically significant improvements in markers of TMA activity, specifically mean platelet count, mean lactate dehydrogenase, and mean haptoglobin were seen in this expanded number of study patients.
Patient's PT, aPTT, LDH and haptoglobin were in normal range.
The eight differentially expressed proteins included third party data (TPA): vitamin D-binding protein precursor (GC), complement C4 precursor (C4), paraoxonase 1 (PONI), A2M, endopin 1 (EN1), TPA: apolipoprotein A-IV precursor (APOA4), alpha-1-antitrypsin, and haptoglobin (HP).
Both assays specifically quantify levels of zonulin with no cross-reactivity to haptoglobin 1 or 2.
Based on type, the global immunoprotein diagnostic testing market is classified into free light chain diagnostic tests, C-reactive protein diagnostic tests, immunoglobulin diagnostic tests, complement system protein diagnostic tests, and haptoglobin diagnostic tests.
The primary objective was to assess the proportion of patients with posttreatment hemolysis, which was defined as a low haptoglobin level (<0.
Reference intervals for haptoglobin and protein fractions obtained by electrophoresis were determined for the American flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) based on plasma samples from 39 captive birds.
On the other hand, some studies noted that the concentrations of SAA and haptoglobin remained at normal ranges during experimentally created bacterial and aseptic infections (ALSEMGEEST et al.

Haptoglobin is a blood protein primarily synthesized by hepatocytes that is also produced locally by oligodendrocytes in the brain.
