Reginaldo, Christina.

Abstract: Background: A variety of inflammatory conditions, including cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes, and are associated with both increased kynurenine pathway (KP) activity and low plasma concentrations of pyridoxal 5'phosphate (PLP), the bioactive form of vitamin B6.
