Rapid One-Step Assay for Field-Based Detection of Asymptomatic Malaria

A novel CRISPR-based ultrasensitive assay system was able to detect the four major types of malaria-causing parasites and has been streamlined for use in locations lacking the advanced laboratory equipment and highly trained technicians required for tests such as RT-qPCR, which is used extensively for monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mannose-Binding Lectin Associated with Coagulopathy in Severe COVID-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant morbidity and mortality worldwide, as well as profound effects on society. COVID-19 patients have an increased risk of thromboembolic (TE) complications, which develop despite pharmacological thromboprophylaxis. More...

Ammonia Predicts Prognosis in Hepatitis B Virus‐Related Liver Failure

Acute‐on‐chronic liver failure (ACLF) is the rapid deterioration of liver function in chronic liver disease often associated with the development of serious complications such as hepatorenal syndrome and hepatic encephalopathy within a short period of time. More...

Gut Microbiome Data Helps Routine Screening of Cardiovascular Disease

Besides genetics and environmental factors, gut microbiota has emerged as a new factor influencing cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although cause-effect relationships are not clearly established, the reported associations between alterations in gut microbiota and CVD are prominent. More...

Unconventional T Cells in COVID-19 Patients Predicts Disease Outcome

While most people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus experience relatively mild symptoms, some patients mount an aberrant inflammatory response that can damage the lungs and cause acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), potentially resulting in the patient's death. More...

Proteomics-Based Diagnostic Test Predicts Risk of Dying from Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia

A diagnostic approach that integrates proteomic and metabolomic techniques enabled the identification of biomarkers that could predict which patients had the highest risk of dying from Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia. More...

Six Biomarkers Predict Severity of COVID-19

Coronavirus disease 2019 patients admitted to the ICU have high mortality. The host response to coronavirus disease 2019 has only been partially elucidated, and prognostic biomarkers have not been identified. More...
