Total Plasma Homocysteine Methods Evaluated

Homocysteine (HCY) is occasionally requested as a prognostic risk factor in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Homocysteine is an intermediary amino acid formed in methionine metabolism, with elevated total homocysteine (tHCY) is a biomarker of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. More...

Lipid Cutoffs Identified for CVD Risk in Young Adults Without Diabetes

The underlying pathogenesis and progression associated with nearly all cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are predominantly of atherosclerotic origin that leads to the development of coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, venous thromboembolism and, peripheral vascular disease, subsequently causing myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac arrhythmias or stroke.

Novel Presepsin Assay Evaluated Using Automated Immunoanalyzer

Biomarkers that reflect systemic responses during sepsis have been studied continuously, and there are various surrogate markers for the diagnosis of sepsis. Procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), cytokines, and chemokines have been studied extensively under the previous and revised sepsis definitions. More...
