Simple Urine Test Significantly Improves Detection of Adrenal Cancer

Prognosis for patients discovered to have an adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC), a cancerous adrenal mass, is poor, and a cure is only achievable through early detection and surgery. The incidental discovery of an adrenal mass often triggers additional scans to determine whether the mass is cancerous. More...

Lipocalin 2 Proposed as Biomarker for Bacterial Meningitis

Central nervous system (CNS) infections cause significant mortality and morbidity worldwide. Common CNS infections include bacterial meningitis (BM) other than tuberculosis, viral encephalitis, tuberculous meningitis (TBM) and cryptococcal meningitis, but there are more than 100 documented infectious causes of CNS infections. More...

Protracted Ketonemia Reported in Hyperglycemic COVID-19 Emergencies

Diabetes is a major contributor to disease severity and mortality in patients with COVID-19; with an estimated 3.5-times increase in risk of death during hospital admission for patients with type 1 diabetes, and 2.03-times for those with type 2 diabetes. More...

Plasma Lipidome Investigated in Hereditary Hemochromatosis

Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder with increased intestinal iron absorption which leads to iron overload and consequently to tissue damage and functional impairment of organs like liver, pancreas, and heart. More...

Different Ways of Measuring HDL Predicts Cardiovascular Disease

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is a well-integrated biomarker of cardiometabolic health and remains a key component of the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk prediction algorithms used to guide therapy. More...

Melatonin Levels in Parkinson’s Patients Linked to Non-Motor Symptoms

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a complex neurodegenerative disease characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the pars compacta (SNpc), resulting in the classic motor manifestations in PD patients. The clinical diagnosis of PD mainly relies on the presence of motor symptoms as the disease progresses. More...

Blood Tests Predicts the Risk of Liver Cirrhosis

Fat accumulation in the liver is common and is often seen in people with obesity or diabetes. In the worst case, fatty liver can lead to cirrhosis or liver cancer. It is unusual for this to occur but in those affected, symptoms often only occur at a late stage when there is no available treatment. More...
