New Glucose Biosensor Introduced for Diabetes Management

The world’s first saliva-based glucose test for diabetes management that measures glucose in saliva rather than blood has been introduced. More...

HDL Subclasses Linked to Mortality in Heart Failure Patients

Heart failure (HF) is a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and is defined by the as an abnormality of the cardiac structure and function, resulting in a diminished ability of the heart to maintain optimal perfusion of metabolizing tissues. More...

Long-Term Risk for CVD Stratified by Fasting Glucose Level

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) refers to any disease of the heart, vascular disease of the brain, or disease of the blood vessel. The most prevalent cardiovascular diseases include coronary heart disease (CHD) such as a heart attack and cerebrovascular disease such as a stroke. More...

High-Sensitivity CRP Testing Underutilized

Heart attack, stroke, and atherothrombotic cardiovascular deaths are disorders characterized by chronic hyperlipidemia in the setting of a persistent pro-inflammatory response, often exacerbated by hypertension and behavioral factors such as smoking. More...

Retina Protein Antibodies Used As Kidney Cancer Marker

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the second-most common uronephrological cancer. In the absence of specific symptoms, early diagnosis of RCC is challenging. Monitoring of the aberrant expression of tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) and related autoantibody response is considered as a novel approach of RCC diagnostics. More...

Biochemical Hypoglycemia Associated with Risk of Hypoglycemia

To optimize diabetes management, it is essential to have assessments of both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is primarily a measure of hyperglycemia, but it provides no indication of the frequency or severity of hypoglycemia. More...

Calprotectin Independently Predicts Relapse in Treated RA

Calprotectin is a biomarker of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and predicts relapse in juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Higher drug trough serum levels are associated with a good response in patients treated with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFi). More...
