Serum Albumin Level Predicts Serious HIV Events

Serum albumin may be used to stratify human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected persons with a high CD4+ T-cell count according to their risk of serious non-Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) endpoints. More...

Blood Gas Analyzers for POC Validated

Several aspects of pH and blood gas analysis are unique in laboratory analysis, and furthermore, no other test results have such a great and immediate impact on patient care. In addition, it is now possible to carry out further vital biological assays on the same sample. More...

Protein Signature Associated with Outcome in Metastatic Melanoma

Clinical results in metastatic melanoma with the antibodies nivolumab and pembrolizumab to anti– programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) have led to clinically and statistically significant improvements in progression-free and overall survival compared to alternative first- and second-line therapies. More...

Lipid Biomarker Concentrations Associated with CVD Risk

Circulating concentrations of lipid biomarkers are consistently associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) events and thus are considered major indicators of metabolic health, but the evidence for a relationship with cancer risk, however, is not entirely consistent. More...
