Low Serotonin Levels Associated with Higher Nigral Iron in Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized clinically by bradykinesia, rigidity, and/or tremor and pathologically by dopaminergic neuron loss in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) and the presence of ⍺-synuclein-containing inclusions in cell bodies or neurites (Lewy pathology).

Different Test Systems Analytical Performance Evaluated for Serum Creatinine

Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate from muscle and protein metabolism. It is produced and released by the body at a constant rate into the blood, and it is then carried to the kidneys through the blood circulation. More...

Blood Biomarker Kallikrein-8 Detects Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease and the most common cause of dementia. AD starts to damage the brain 20 years or more before any clinical symptoms appear. The currently available biomarker for AD (beta-amyloid (Aβ, A), tau (T), and neurodegeneration (N), (ATN)) are measured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). More...

Nomograms Including Rapid Antigen Test Detects Primary Bladder Cancer

Urinary bladder cancer (BC) is the tenth most prevalent cancer affecting mainly the elderly and men. The suspicion of BC often arises after the detection of microscopic or macroscopic (gross) hematuria during a patient’s examination. More...

Near Normal Aminotransferase Levels Reported in Alcoholic Cirrhosis Patients

Alcoholic cirrhosis affects around 1 in 400 adults in the USA. It is an advanced form of liver disease, which occurs when chronic ethanol use leads to inflammation and cirrhosis or scarring of the liver. Less than 50% of people diagnosed with advanced liver disease due to cirrhosis survive for one year, and so early diagnosis is crucial. More...

Serum High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein Associated With Pre-Diabetes

Individuals with pre-diabetes are at a higher risk for progression to diabetes and are also known to be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Also, pre-diabetes is known to be associated with obesity and an abnormal lipid profile. More...

Calprotectin Levels Vary When Measured in Different Matrices for COVID-19

Several risk scores, diagnostic imaging and biomarkers have been evaluated and compared to help predict severe complications and outcome in COVID-19 patients. Nevertheless, early prediction of COVID-19 severity remains difficult, emphasizing the need for additional biomarkers in daily practice. More...
