Virtual Venue

Molecular Diagnostics

ALDOA and FH4 Antibodies Associated with Cerebrovascular Disease

Ischemic stroke, including transient ischemic attack (TIA) and cerebral infarction (CI), is the most globally recognized cerebrovascular disorder, and is a serious health problem in the aging society. CI is an episode of neurological dysfunction caused by focal brain infarction, often resulting in fatality and disability. Patients with TIA are at a high risk of CI. More...

Highly Sensitive Genetic Test for Glaucoma Developed

In open-angle glaucoma, the angle in the eye where the iris meets the cornea is as wide and open as it should be, but the eye’s drainage canals become clogged over time, causing an increase in internal eye pressure and subsequent damage to the optic nerve. More...

Image: Neuropathologic analysis of brain tissue from FTLD patients. Ubiquitin immunohistochemistry in cases of familial FTLD demonstrates staining of (a) neurites and neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions in the superficial cerebral neocortex, (b) neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions in hippocampal dentate granule cells, and (c) neuronal intranuclear inclusions in the cerebral neocortex (arrows) (Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)

Neurofilament Light Chain Levels Increase Accuracy of Neurodegenerative Disease Detection

Increased accuracy in early detection of neurodegenerative diseases was obtained by adding determination of levels of neurofilament light chain (NfL) protein in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to the framework that combines three Alzheimer's disease biomarkers - pathologic amyloid plaques (A), tangles (T), and neurodegeneration (N), collectively called ATN. More...

Thombomodulin Identified as Unique Biomarker for Diagnosing Necrotizing Soft-Tissue Infections

Thrombomodulin, a protein present in blood plasma, is a biomarker that may be useful for diagnosing necrotizing soft-tissue infections. More...

APOE Gene Influences Alzheimer's Symptoms, Biomarkers in Down Syndrome

Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) constitute a population at ultrahigh risk of developing Alzheimer disease (AD) because of trisomy of chromosome 21, which harbors the amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene. More...

Preemies' Blood Type Tied to Risk for Necrotizing Enterocolitis

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and focal intestinal perforation (FIP) are two of the most common emergencies of the gastrointestinal tract in preterm infants with very low birth weight (VLBW). The etiology and pathogenesis of NEC and FIP remain poorly understood. More...

Optical Genome Mapping Enables Constitutional Chromosomal Aberration Detection

Optical genome mapping (OGM) is a novel method that fills this void by being able to detect all classes of structural variations (SVs), including copy number variations (CNVs). OGM is being adopted by laboratories as a tool for both postnatal constitutional genetic disorders and hematological malignancies. More...
