Products: The Department of Medical Biochemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, in cooperation with the economy, conducts interventional clinical studies, which include supplementation of subjects with various dietary supplements and foods to determine their impact on oxidative stress status, cholesterol homeostasis and changes in size and functionality of HDL and LDL particles, as well as changes in inflammatory markers concentration. The laboratory is equipped with modern analytical instruments (HPLC-MS / MS, qPCR, electrophoretic and spectrophotometric techniques) used to determine specific metabolites and parameters:
- – Markers of oxidative stress and antioxidant protection
- – Markers of cholesterol synthesis and absorption
- – Distribution of individual subpopulations of LDL and HDL particles
- – Vitamin D metabolites
- – Assessment of cell/organism aging by determining telomere length
- – Unique method for in vitro analysis of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of drugs and dietary products.
The research laboratory of the Department of Medical Biochemistry also offers services such as the design and implementation of clinical trials, as well as statistical processing of results and their interpretation. With various pharmacoeconomic analyzes and knowledge of laboratory statistics, it provides validation and verification services for laboratory procedures, methods and analyzers, as well as cost-effectiveness assessment through cost-effectiveness analysis.
Standards and certifications: Good Manufacturing Practice – GMP
