As is well known, HLH is characterized by a systemic activation of macrophages/histiocytes, which are induced to undergo phagocytosis of hematopoietic elements.
hLH, hLH[beta], hCG, hCG[beta], and hCG[beta]cf) are measured.
d], equilibrium dissociation constant; VEGF, vesicular endothelial growth factor; FINE, human neutrophil elastase; FP, fluorescence polarization; CE, capillary electrophoresis; APCE, affinity probe capillary electrophoresis; hTSH, human thyroid-stimulating hormone; hLH, human luteinizing hormone; and hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin.
Antibodies B601 and B605 recognized hCG[beta] and hC[beta]n as well as hLH but did not recognize hCG[beta], hCG[beta]n, or hCG[beta]cf.
This double-monoclonal I3/A2 intact LH assay, in which the capture antibody detects an epitope present only in the intact dimer whereas the tracer antibody is directed against the alpha subunit, has been shown to be totally unreactive with the hLH variant [8].
HLH is creating a sustainable source of native Hawaiian koa (Acacia koa) to take pressure off of old growth forests.
This limited case series suggests that adult acquired HLH may be a common pathology in acute care settings, where it may masquerade as sepsis or SIRS.
Then after an initial three-day steroid treatment failed to show any improvement, they realised there was something else, and started to suspect HLH, as well as the cancer.

Neither of these assays could discriminate between hCG and hLH; therefore, to measure hCG specifically in pregnancy serum or urine samples required setting the detection limit at a value above the highest physiological hLH concentration that could be seen during the midcycle spike in ovulating women or above the concentrations found in postmenopausal women, generally around 150-200 IU/L.
In 2011, the Paediatric Department of Sultan Qaboos University Hospital (SQUH) had successfully treated a one-year-old girl suffering from HLH (hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis), a genetic disorder.
