Soluble Transferrin Receptor Investigated in Iron Deficiency Anemia

Anemia is a global public health problem and approximately 30% of the world's population suffered from anemia, with children and pregnant women being the most affected. Microcytic hypochromic anemia is a common type of anemia, and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is the most common manifestation of this anemia. More...

Blood Biomarkers Help Diagnose Parkinson's Disease

The identification of circulating biomarkers that closely correlate with Parkinson’s disease (PD) has failed several times in the past. A conventional pipeline for biomarker discovery usually contemplates the collection of clinical samples, such as blood, and their analysis by mass spectrometry. More...

Salivary Molecular Spectroscopy Used to Monitor Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia which results from insufficient secretion and/or reduced insulin action in peripheral tissues. Frequent monitoring of diabetes is essential for improved glucose control and to delay clinical complications related with diabetes. More...

Elevated Vitamin-B12 Level Lowers Risk of Parkinson’s Disease Dementia

Previous studies found that, among people with Parkinson’s, those with cognitive impairment, such as dementia, had significantly lower levels of vitamin B12 in their blood. This suggests the possibility that low vitamin B12 or cobalamin levels predispose certain individuals to dementia. More...
