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...

New Biomarker Reported for Severe Intracerebral Hemorrhage

The association between high serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and clinical outcomes of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) patients has been investigated. 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...

Brain Protein May Help Assess Recovery Time Following Concussion

An initial study of blood samples from athletes has indicated that elevated levels of the brain protein tau following a sport-related concussion are associated with a longer recovery period and delayed return-to-play (RTP), suggesting that tau may serve as a marker to help physicians determine an athlete’s recovery status and RTP readiness.

Blood Test Leads to Earlier Detection of Lung Cancer

A new blood test has been developed that can accurately detect antibodies to lung cancer cells at an early stage, potentially up to five years before traditional scans show any damage. More...

New Automated Periostin Immunoassay Developed

Periostin is being investigated as a potential biomarker for T-helper-2 (Th2)-driven asthma or eosinophilic inflammation and may help to identify patients more likely to benefit from interleukin-13-targeted treatments. More...

Abnormal Immune Cells Involved in Causing Fibrosis

Using a mouse model, researchers have discovered a form of atypical monocyte as well as a committed progenitor that are involved in development of fibrosis. More...
