Strongyloidiasis Antibodies Found in Transplant Donors

Strongyloidiasis is a neglected tropical disease caused by a parasite, which is endemic in most parts of the world. It can cause a life-threatening disease among immunosuppressed individuals and can be transmitted from solid organ transplant (SOT) donors to recipients. More...

Potential Biomarkers Found for Acute Aortic Dissection

An aortic dissection is a serious condition in which the inner layer of the aorta, the large blood vessel branching off the heart, tears. Blood surges through the tear, causing the inner and middle layers of the aorta to separate (dissect). More...

Commercial Fully Automated Procalcitonin Immunoassay Compared

Procalcitonin (PCT), a 13-kDa peptide precursor of calcitonin, has gained widespread acceptance as an early and specific biomarker for the presence of systemic bacterial infection. In particular, PCT monitoring has demonstrated value in guiding antibiotic use for bacterial infections. More...

Dengue Virus Specific T-Cell Responses Correlated with Disease Severity

Dengue virus (DENV) is the cause of the most common mosquito-borne viral infection worldwide, and over half of the global population live in areas where there is intense dengue transmission putting them at risk of dengue infection. More...

Levels of IgA Nephropathy Associated with Disease Severity

IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common cause of primary glomerulonephritis. IgAN is associated with a poor prognosis, about 20% to 40% of patients with IgAN progress slowly to end-stage renal failure 20 to 25 years after diagnosis. More...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Histoplasma Urine Antigen Assay Evaluated

Histoplasmosis is an endemic mycosis in many regions of Latin America. In the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected population it manifests as progressive disseminated histoplasmosis (PDH), an entity hard to diagnose since the causative fungi, Histoplasma capsulatum, is slow growing and requires advance biosafety for its handling. More...

Plasma Human Proteins Associated with Acute Pediatric Malaria

Severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum continues to be one of the leading infectious causes of morbidity and mortality in children worldwide. The intimate interaction between the pathophysiology of the human host and the biology of the P. falciparum parasite results in a wide spectrum of disease outcomes in malaria. More...
