• tumor marker
  • The potential use as a tumor marker was suggested by Gronowitz et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • The enzyme suggested as a tumor marker in malignant disease is the cytosolic cell cycle dependent TK1 that is present during cell division in quantities much larger than TK2 and is therefore set free to the circulation in quantities that completely dominate the activity of thymidine kinase in blood and other body fluids. (wikipedia.org)
  • CA-125 has found application as a tumor marker or biomarker that may be elevated in the blood of some patients with specific types of cancers, or other conditions that are benign. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnostic markers
  • The research team recruited more than 700 patients with psychosis and some of their first-degree relatives--a parent, sibling or child--as well as a control group of healthy individuals to see if they could identify brain-based diagnostic markers to differentiate these conditions.

  • brain
  • According to lead author of the study Nina Kraus, Hugh Knowles Professor of Neurobiology, Physiology and Communication at Northwestern, the biological underpinnings all revolve around the brain and a seemingly unrelated action - a person's hearing ability. (foxnews.com)
  • Now knowing the biological underpinnings of dyslexia and reading impairment, Kraus hopes this technology can one day be used by teachers and scientists to better understand how the reading process develops in a child's brain - and to ultimately help them become better readers if they start to fall behind. (foxnews.com)
  • But while this technology is being refined and improved, medical experts are still searching for biological markers that can detect brain injuries in athletes now, and recent findings suggest they may exist in the blood. (consumeraffairs.com)
  • chronic
  • A recent study indicates that apomorphine might be a suitable marker for assessing central dopamine system alterations associated with chronic heroin consumption. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • A recent article showed that insulin and leptin, biological markers of obesity, may correlate with cancer risk in Barrett's esophagus patients. (prweb.com)
  • Now we can link cancer even more closely to biological markers, which will give us a more advanced knowledge of the course of progression," explained Mark Davidson, MD, another director at the Barrett's Esophagus Center of Excellence. (prweb.com)
  • potential
  • For example, there are a number of good potential markers in the rise and decline of "Christmas tree" stromatolites, in the ebb and flow of banded iron formations, the appearance of stable carbon-13 isotope (13C) excursions, and so on. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Czerwionka M, Korf H-W, Hoffmann O, Busch H, Schachenmayr W (1989) Differentiation in medulloblastomas: correlation between the immunocytochemical demonstration of photoreceptor markers (S-antigen, rod-opsin) and the survival rate in 66 patients. (springer.com)
  • treatment
  • During this period, we will collect pre and post treatment clinical data,and biological data and ultrasonographic data such as antral follicle count which is a marker of ovarian follicle reserve.These data were not observed in current practice. (clinicaltrials.gov)
