The levels of two protein biomarkers, GFAP and UCH-L1 found in blood samples taken 24 hours after a traumatic brain injury can help to predict which patients will die and which will obtain a severe disability.
Six proteins in the blood can be used to assess a person's risk of developing cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD). CSVD has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and Alzheimer's disease.
A new light-based technique for measuring levels of the toxic protein that causes Huntington's disease (HD) has been used to demonstrate that the protein builds up gradually in blood cells.
A newly developed blood test screens for biomarkers associated with anxiety to determine a person's risk of developing the disorder as well as monitor the severity of symptoms in those with anxiety.
A new blood test can distinguish the severity of a person's depression and their risk for developing severe depression at a later point. The test can also determine if a person is at risk for developing bipolar disorder. Researchers say the blood test can also assist in tailoring individual options for therapeutic interventions.
A newly developed blood test can detect brain-derived tau (BD-tau), a biomarker of Alzheimer's disease neurodegeneration.
Researchers have developed a new algorithm that uses data based on metabolites in blood samples to successfully predict if a child is on the autism spectrum.
