Blood Test Predicts Silent Heart Disease Risk

Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer, accounting for nearly 70,000 deaths in the UK each year. When heart muscle is damaged it leaks a protein called troponin in to the blood stream. Patients suspected of suffering a heart attack will often be given a troponin test to aide diagnosis, but until now the test has not been used to assess future heart attack risk. More...

Early Biomarker Found for Sepsis-Induced Kidney Injury

Sepsis is a worldwide health care problem and a leading cause of death of patients in intensive care unit. On the other hand, acute kidney injury (AKI) is a clinical syndrome of an abrupt renal dysfunction leading to uremic toxins accumulation and several organs dysfunction. More...

Dysbiosis of Urinary Microbiota Positively Correlated with Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) accounts for 90% of diabetes, and T2DM is not due to insufficient use of insulin but due to insufficient insulin secretion and insufficient insulin action. Hospitalization rate for urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by diabetes is over twice as much as those caused by other factors. More...

Combined Urinary Procedure Used to Diagnosis Mucopolysaccharidoses

Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of rare genetic disorders of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) metabolism caused by the deficiency of one of the lysosomal enzymes required for GAG degradation. The diseases are characterized by the accumulation of undegraded glycosaminoglycans in lysosomes in multiple organs and by their excretion in high amounts in urine. More...

New Diagnostic Tests Improve Care for Heart Failure Patients

For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve treatment for heart failure patients by diagnosing the condition with greater accuracy, as well as by detecting the onset of congestive heart failure earlier. More...

Biomarker Signatures Predict Aging Health Quality

A panel of 19 biomarkers in the blood was utilized to create molecular signatures that are able to predict how well an individual is aging and how severe the likelihood that he or she will develop an aging-related disease. More...

Nanoarray Senses and Distinguishes Multiple Diseases

Exhaled breath contains nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen, as well as a small amount of more than 100 other volatile chemical components and the relative amounts of these substances vary depending on the state of a person's health. More...
