Description of neopterin with associated disease summary
AsthmaThe sputum neopterin is increased in asthma patients with the symptoms of a viral infection. However, no significant difference in EBC neopterin between asthma patients with and without the viral infection (Respirology. (2013)).
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)The sputum neopterin is increased in COPD patients with the symptoms of a viral infection. However, no significant difference in EBC neopterin between COPD patients with and without the viral infection (Respirology. (2013)).
Summary of extracted biomedical informationNeopterin is associated with abnormalities such as Cardiovascular morbidity, Central obesity, Atherosclerosis, Senile Plaques and Acute coronary syndrome. The involved biomedical functions are known as Macrophage Activation, Sleep Fragmentation, Hypoxia, Pathogenesis and Cardiac Death. The associated genes/proteins with neopterin are Thrombogen.
