The structure of the institute

ÚLCHKB consists of the department of logistics and receipt of biological material, the central biochemical laboratory, the RIA laboratory, the department of clinical pharmacology (TDM and pharmacokinetics), the department of immunochemistry and serology, the department of special methods (HPLC, AAS, FTIR, LC-MS), urine laboratories and laboratories for the analysis of urinary stones, there is also a detached workplace for the determination of chlorides in sweat and a section for POCT. ÚLCHKB provides over 220 different laboratory tests. It examines an average of 2500 biological samples per day, ie 750 examinations / month in a continuous three-shift operation. A number of examinations are also performed for other external medical facilities, eg MTX, cyclosporin A, busulfan, tacrolimus, sirolimus, lead, platinum, IGF-000, determination of antifungals, etc. metabolism, eating disorders in the sense of obesity and malnutrition.

 

Science and research

Free radical biochemistry, oxidative cell damage and antioxidant systems. Biochemical tissue remodeling and wound healing. Study of connective tissue collagen proteins and their proteinases. Biomarkers of cancer and degenerative diseases. Trace elements, vitamins A, E, K, D. Nutritional hormones. Bone metabolism. Sepsis biomarkers (MDW and MxA protein).
The projects of the Institute of Medical Chemistry and Clinical Biochemistry of the 2nd Medical Faculty of Charles University are focused on research of new biomarkers in malignant tumors (bottoms 2, -2proPSA, mindin, sarcosine), inhibin A as a marker of VVV in prenatal screening, marker of diabetic nephropathy , marker of acute kidney damage (NGAL), monitoring of drug levels (busulfan, ganciclovir), determination of vitamin K1 and K2 levels (MK-4, MK-7) by LC / MS and HPLC, determination of markers of liver fibrosis (hyaluronic acid, collagen, TIMP), determination of selenium and manganese in cerebrospinal fluid using AAS and determination of reference limits in children, research of markers of oxidative stress and lipoperoxidation by fluorimetry and liquid and gas chromatography. The aim of the research is also to determine the reference limits of vitamin K1, MK4 and MK7 and to correlate the values ​​with the values ​​of subcarboxylated osteocalcin and other bone markers.

 

ÚLCHKB research projects focus on sexual differentiation disorders (steroid 21-hydroxylase, inhibins), nutritional hormones (amylin, orexins), biochemical transplant monitoring (IL-6, cystatin C, alpha-GST), biochemical monitoring of cancer (cathepsin B ), biomarkers of wound healing (metalloproteinases).
