The standard Trp and KYN were supplied by Sigma Chemicals.
The concentrations of Trp and KYN and the KT ratio were compared between the following groups of subjects: group A, HIV-negative controls; group B, asymptomatic patients, excluding patients with AIDS-related complex; group C, patients within 60 days of developing their first AIDS-defining event, but with no neurological complication; group D, patients within 60 days of a clinical diagnosis of PN and/or ARD, with or without a prior AIDS-defining illness; and group E, patients who died within 60 days.
The mean and median KYN concentrations of the control group were 2.
Data comparing the Trp and KYN concentrations and the KT ratio with the CD4 count are also presented in Table 1.
Unlike traditional health risk assessment tools, KYN was developed by BioSignia to address the needs of increasingly diverse populations.
Here we evaluated whether the quinolinic branch and/or the transamination side branch of the kynurenine pathway of Trp catabolism (leading to Quin or Kyna, respectively; Figure 1), become activated in severely ill patients who develop sepsis, and whether the increase of circulating Kyns results from impaired renal function.
To evaluate differences in Kyns between controls and defined patient groups at baseline, variance analyses were applied.
001) between those patients and septic patients at baseline (Figure 2A and 2B), suggesting either a further increase of Trp catabolism or damming of Kyns due to reduced renal clearance in patients with septic shock.
