Blood Test To Predict High Risk Covid-19 Patients

New York: A standard test that assesses blood cells can identify which patients admitted to hospital with Covid-19 could face a high risk of becoming critical and die, say researchers. “We wanted to help find ways to identify high-risk Covid patients as early and as easily as possible — who are likely to become severely […]

Blood Tests Can Predict Risk Of Severe Liver Disease

London: Researchers have found that repeated measurements of the biomarker FIB-4 in human blood every few years can predict the risk of developing severe liver disease. According to a study published in the Journal of Hepatology, the risk of liver cirrhosis increases if the levels of this biomarker rise between two testing occasions. Fat accumulation […]

Blood Test Can Identify People At Risk Of Night-Time High BP

New York: Researchers have found that a simple blood test can help identify people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who are at higher risk of cardiovascular problems because of a phenomenon called “reverse dipping” that causes blood pressure to rise rather than lower during sleep. Most people experience lower blood pressure at night. The new […]

Blood Test To Detect Breast Cancer Signs 5 Years Sooner

London: Researchers have found that a simple blood test can detect breast cancer up to five years before there are any clinical signs of it. The blood test identifies the body’s immune response to substances produced by tumour cells, according to the research presented at the 2019 NCRI (National Cancer Research Institute) Cancer Conference in […]

New Blood Test May Detect 20 Types Of Cancers

New York: A new blood test has shown ability to screen numerous types of cancer with a high degree of accuracy. A trial of the test showed it detected and localized more than 20 types of cancers. The test, developed by biotechnology company Grail Inc uses next-generation sequencing technology to probe DNA for tiny chemical […]

Alzheimer
Blood test to spot Alzheimer's before symptoms occur

London: Researchers have developed a new test that could help doctors detect Alzheimer’s disease eight years before the first symptoms occur. Using current techniques, Alzheimer’s disease, the most frequent cause of dementia, can only be detected once the typical plaques have formed in the brain. At this point, therapy seems no longer possible. However, the […]

Novel blood test for pain may help combat opioid epidemic

New York: A one-of-its-kind blood test to measure pain in patients could open the door to precision medicine and help stem the tide of the opioid crisis, say researchers. Until now, to assess pain – a subjective sensation – doctors had to rely on patients self-reporting or the clinical symptoms. But the novel blood test […]

New blood test to screen for secondary heart attack

Sydney: Australian scientists are developing a simple blood test that quickly and easily detects whether a person is at risk of a secondary heart attack. The simple blood test, similar to the process and cost of having a cholesterol test, could be operated out of hospital pathology laboratories that already contain the necessary equipment. It […]

New blood test to predict TB onset two years in advance

Johannesburg: Researchers have developed a new blood test that can more accurately predict the development of tuberculosis (TB) up to two years before its onset in high-risk patients. The new test predicts TB particularly in people living with persons having active TB — a condition when the immune system is unable to stop the bacteria […]

Ultrasound, blood test together may boost liver cancer detection

New York: Earlier detection is important to improving survival of patients with liver cancer, and combining an ultrasound imaging with a blood test can help achieve that, say researchers, including one of Indian-origin. Using ultrasound and a blood test for high alpha fetoprotein (AFP) levels together improves detection of early-stage liver cancer significantly, said the […]

Blood test plus ultrasound may boost liver cancer detection

New York: Earlier detection is important to improving survival of patients with liver cancer, and combining an ultrasound imaging with a blood test can help achieve that, say researchers, including one of Indian-origin. Using ultrasound and a blood test for high alpha fetoprotein (AFP) levels together improves detection of early-stage liver cancer significantly, said the […]

New blood test may help early detection of 8 cancers

Sydney: A new blood test that can help in the early diagnoses of eight common cancers before they spread and risk patients’ chances of survival has been developed by Australian researchers. The new test would help early detection of cancers affecting the ovary, liver, stomach, pancreas, oesophagus, bowel, lung and breast, Xinhua quotes a statement […]

New blood test can predict onset of Huntington's disease

London: In a first, a blood test that can predict the onset and track progression of Huntington’s disease has been developed. The finding may help identify new treatments for the genetic brain disorder, which is fatal and currently incurable. Huntington’s disease is an inherited condition in which nerve cells in the brain break down over […]
