Altered Glycosylation Associated with Dedifferentiation of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

 Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a common cancer with poor prognosis. Liver cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer worldwide, and the fourth most common cause of cancer death. HCC accounts for most primary liver cancers. More...

Noninvasive Urine Test Developed for Prostate Cancer

 It is estimated that 191,930 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (PCa) in USA this year, and 33,330 of these patients will die of the disease this year. PCa is one of the second most frequently diagnosed cancer deaths among men worldwide. More...

Predictors Evaluated for Microalbuminuria in Type 2 Diabetes

 Chronic inflammation has an important role in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes through immunologic inflammatory mechanisms. The neutrophil‐to‐lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a new, simple, and inexpensive marker of subclinical inflammation and has been used as a systemic inflammatory marker in chronic diseases. More...

Automated Enzymatic Method Quantifies Pyruvate Kinase in Erythrocytes

 A deficiency of red blood cell (RBC) pyruvate kinase (PK), inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, is the most common cause of hereditary nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia (HSHA). The hemolysis is owing to the inability of the PK-deficient RBCs to maintain adequate quantities of ATP. More...

Regular Thyroid Testing Recommended Regardless of Diabetes Type

 Thyroid dysfunction is common among people with diabetes regardless of type, suggesting that biochemical thyroid screening should be a part of routine management for those with type 1 and type 2. A recent study has determined the prevalence and incidence of thyroid dysfunction in type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes of adults. More...

Glucose Point-of-Care Measurements Evaluated for Gestational Diabetes

 Gestational diabetes is a condition in which a woman without diabetes develops high blood sugar levels during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes generally results in few symptoms; however, it does increase the risk of pre-eclampsia, depression, and requiring a Caesarean section. More...

Low Folate Levels Can Indicate Malnutrition in Hospital Patients

 Folate deficiency, also known as vitamin B9 deficiency, is a low level of folate and derivatives in the body. Signs of folate deficiency are often subtle. A low number of red blood cells (anemia) are a late finding in folate deficiency and folate deficiency anemia is the term given for this medical condition. More...
