Lipid Measurements Show Potential as Alzheimer’s Disease Biomarkers

Brain changes accompanying ageing are varied and can include pathologies that lead to cognitive impairment, the commonest of which is Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Identifying blood-based signatures of brain health and preclinical pathology may offer insights into early disease mechanisms and highlight avenues for intervention. More...

Biomarker Proenkephalin Investigated in Diagnosis of Acute Kidney Injury

Liver transplantation (LT) is the only treatment available for patients with end-stage liver disease, such as liver cancer or acute and subacute liver failure. Among the various types of postoperative organ damage, acute kidney injury (AKI) is particularly prevalent, developing in 5% to 20% of patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery. More...
