Whole-genome sequencing analysis to find more exact biomarkers

A new study from Uppsala University shows that whole-genome sequencing increases the precision of genetic studies, which in turn can improve our understanding of how to use biomarkers to discover disease. The results are ...

Team finds biomarkers to diagnose serious kidney allergic reaction

A team led by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers says it has identified two protein biomarkers in urine that may one day be used to better diagnose acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), an underdiagnosed but treatable kidney ...

Alzheimer's disease & dementia

Early-stage detection of Alzheimer's in the blood

Using current techniques, Alzheimer's disease, the most frequent cause of dementia, can only be detected once characteristic plaques have formed in the brain. At this point, therapy is no longer possible. However, the first ...

Looking for 'help' signals in the blood of newborns with HIE

Measuring a number of biomarkers over time that are produced as the body responds to inflammation and injury may help to pinpoint newborns who are more vulnerable to suffering lasting brain injury due to disrupted oxygen ...
