Higher Tenascin-C Levels Associated with Cardiovascular Disease

 Although there are several known biomarkers for cardiovascular (CV) risk that have been proposed to improve risk stratification in diabetes, they have not been incorporated into international guidelines. More...

Kidney Disease Reveals DNA Variants Associated with Diabetic Nephropathy

 Diabetic kidney disease is a serious complication that develops in some people with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. It affects the kidneys' ability to filter extra water and waste products from the body and leads to high blood pressure, swollen extremities, loss of concentration, fatigue and could end in kidney failure.

Image: The Elecsys BRAHMS PCT (procalcitonin) assay is intended for the mortality risk assessment and management of sepsis patients. Featuring a short duration time of only 18 minutes, the Elecsys BRAHMS PCT assay can be easily added to any of the automated cobas immunoanalyzer platforms (Photo courtesy of Roche Diagnostics).

Serial Procalcitonin Measurements Utilized in Hospitalized Community-Acquired Pneumonia

 Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) refers to pneumonia (any of several lung diseases) contracted by a person with little contact with the healthcare system. CAP, the most common type of pneumonia, is a leading cause of illness and death worldwide. Its causes include bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. More...

Endothelial Function Biomarker Improves Sepsis Patients Risk Stratification

 Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the body's response to an infection. The body normally releases chemicals into the bloodstream to fight an infection. Sepsis occurs when the body's response to these chemicals is out of balance, triggering changes that can damage multiple organ systems. More...

Adiponectin Linked to Cancer Risk in Diabetes

 Adiponectin is a protein hormone that modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation. Adiponectin is secreted from adipose tissue, and also from the placenta in pregnancy, into the bloodstream and is very abundant in plasma relative to many hormones. More...

Altered Glycosylation Associated with Dedifferentiation of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

 Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a common cancer with poor prognosis. Liver cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer worldwide, and the fourth most common cause of cancer death. HCC accounts for most primary liver cancers. More...

Noninvasive Urine Test Developed for Prostate Cancer

 It is estimated that 191,930 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (PCa) in USA this year, and 33,330 of these patients will die of the disease this year. PCa is one of the second most frequently diagnosed cancer deaths among men worldwide. More...
