Longitudinal Analysis of Circulating Markers of #Bone Turnover Across Multiple Decades in #Osteoporotic Women

The objective of this study was to analyze changes in serum markers of bone turnover across multiple decades in osteoporotic women compared with nonosteoporotic controls, to determine their utility as potential predictors for osteoporosis. Early prediction of those at risk for osteoporosis can enable early intervention before the irreversible loss of critical bone mass. MethodsSerum samples were obtained from 20 women given the diagnosis of … Continue reading Longitudinal Analysis of Circulating Markers of #Bone Turnover Across Multiple Decades in #Osteoporotic Women

#Anticardiolipin and other #antiphospholipid antibodies in critically ill #COVID-19 positive and negative patients

Reports of severe COVID-19 being associated with thrombosis, antiphospholipid antibodies (APLA), and antiphospholipid syndrome have yielded disparate conclusions. Studies comparing patients with COVID-19 with contemporaneous controls of similar severity are lacking. Methods 22 COVID-19+ and 20 COVID-19– patients with respiratory failure admitted to intensive care were studied longitudinally. Demographic and clinical data were obtained from the day of admission. APLA testing included anticardiolipin (aCL), anti-β2glycoprotien … Continue reading #Anticardiolipin and other #antiphospholipid antibodies in critically ill #COVID-19 positive and negative patients
