Development of a validated LC- MS/MS method for the quantification of 19 endogenous asthma/COPD potential urinary biomarkers
Obstructive airways inflammatory diseases sometimes show overlapping symptoms that hinder their early and correct diagnosis. Current clinical tests are tedious and are of inadequate specificity in special population such ...
Mass Spectrometric Based Approaches in Urine Metabolomics and Biomarker Discovery
Urine metabolomics has recently emerged as a prominent field for the discovery of non-invasive biomarkers that can detect subtle metabolic discrepancies in response to a specific disease or therapeutic intervention. Urine, ...
Comparison of accuracy and precision between multipoint calibration, single point calibration and relative quantification for targeted metabolomic analysis
Targeted metabolomics requires accurate and precise quantification of candidate biomarkers, often through tandem mass spectrometric (MS/MS) analysis. Differential isotope labeling (DIL) improves mass spectrometric (MS) ...
Quantitative determination of potential urine biomarkers of respiratory illnesses using new targeted metabolomic approach
The diagnosis of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be challenging due to the overlap in their clinical presentations in some patients. There is a need for a more objective clinical test that can ...
Analysis of a Series of Chlorogenic Acid Isomers using Differential Ion Mobility and Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Chlorogenic acids are among the most abundant phenolics found in the human diet. Of these, the mono-caffeoylquinic acids are the predominant phenolics found in fruits, such as apples and pears, and products derived from ...
Comparative analysis of creatinine and osmolality as urine normalization strategies in targeted metabolomics for the differential diagnosis of asthma and COPD
(Springer Link, 2018-09-01)
Introduction Urine is an ideal matrix for metabolomics investigation due to its non-invasive nature of collection and its rich metabolite content. Despite the advancements in mass spectrometry and 1H-NMR platforms in urine ...
