Description

Details

Urinary porphyrins are oxidized intermediate metabolites of heme biosynthesis and have been associated with genetic disorders, metabolic disturbances/diseases, poor nutritional status, oxidative stress, and high level exposure to toxic chemicals or metals. Specific urine porphyrin profiles are associated with high level exposure to mercury, arsenic, lead and some toxic chemicals. Precoproporphyrins are reported separately and per unit uroporphyrin to increase detection even when heme production is very low.
