New Biomarker Predicts Long-Term Risk of Infection and Death

GlycA levels in blood can tell whether a person has an increased risk of severe infection. The finding by researchers from the Universities of Oulu and Melbourne is based on tests performed on 10000 people. GlycA is a byproduct of inflammation that correlates with citokine levels and an increased immune response, and predicts risk of […]

Microchip Quickly Detects Defects in Donor Lungs

  Researchers from the University of Toronto have developed a microchip that detects biomarkers for lung assessment for transplantation. The microchip will detect lungs damaged at molecular level and thus avoid post-transplantation death. The finding was published in the journal Science Advances. Primary graft dysfunctions cause death of up to 25% of lung recipients. Many tests […]
