Prealbumin, prekallikrein and prothrombin in hepatosplenic schistosomiasis: increased turnover of the clotting proteins? Nora Manoukian; Durval R. Prealbumin, prekallikrein and prothrombin were evaluated in 20 patients with the hepatosplenic form of schistosomiasis and in 18 subjects of a control group. With the prealbumin concentration values obtained in the latter group a reference interval 0. The present findings do not necessarily rule out the possibility that prekallikrein and prothrombin may asses a minimal hepatocellular damage earlier than prealbumin; but, since the latter protein have a shorter half-life than the formers and is a reliable index of hepatic synthetic capacity, the present report supports the hypothesis of an increased turnover of clotting proteins in some patients with the hepatosplenic form of schistosomiasis.

Aims: To evaluate the nutritional status of patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer using subjective global assessment SGA and association of prealbumin levels to nutritional status. Methods: A prospective study was performed on patients with esophageal cancer who were treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy at center of radiation oncology in Huai'an First People's Hospital from January to May The patients' nutritional status after receiving concurrent chemoradiotherapy were evaluated using SGA tool.

Serum total protein, prealbumin, albumin and other biochemical nutrition parameters including triglyceride, total cholesterol, cholesterol and glucose were determined before beginning and after the end of radiotherapy. Results: Malnutrition developed in According to SGA results, Loss of subcutaneous fat or muscle wasting odds ratio [OR] Conclusions: The prevalence of malnutrition was high in esophageal cancer patients undergoing concurrent chemoradiotherapy.

The results serve as a basis for implementation of nutrition intervention to patients being treated at radiotherapy departments.

Prealbumin showed relation with SGA rating and should be considered as a sensitive nutritional biomarker for evaluating nutritional status of esophageal cancer patients undergoing concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
