THERMOMETER, CLINICAL COLOR CHANGE definition: A clinical color change thermometer is a disposable device used to measure a patient's oral, rectal, or axillary (armpit) body temperature. The device records body temperature by use of heat sensitive chemicals which are sealed at the end of a plastic or metal strip. Body heat causes a stable color change in the heat sensitive chemicals.
Thermometers, Liquid Crystal definition: Thermometers designed to measure temperature using liquid crystal (typically esters of cholesterol) sensors sealed in a plastic strip. The strips are placed on an object; the heat of the object alters the molecular structure of the liquid crystals reversibly and in a reproducible way as a function of the temperature. Liquid crystal thermometers are used clinically to measure the temperature on the skin and/or on the surface of laboratory specimen containers.

In addition, we demonstrated (results not shown) that blood sRAGE in RA patients may be found on Western blot examination at 60–80 kDa, indicating in vivo or in vitro complex formation or dimerization.

Our results showed that HMGB1 did not affect the sRAGE detection by ELISA (data not shown), indicating that lower sRAGE levels measured in RA patients are not due to soluble receptor engagement with HMGB1.

Upon co-incubation of these two proteins, however, HMGB1 binding to sRAGE did not affect the detection of the latter, indicating that lower sRAGE levels measured in RA patients are not due to neutralization by HMGB1.

In RA patients with erosive disease, we observed a positive correlation between the white blood cell count and synovial sRAGE levels, indicating that endothelial cells in the synovial blood secrete sRAGE extracellularly as a negative feedback mechanism to limit the inflammation.

In fact most people in the UK consume considerably less than one portion per week [ 4 ] indicating that the recommended levels are not being achieved leaving fish oil supplementation as the most convenient route to augment dietary intake.
