Clinical Chemistry Topics
Measurement of thiopurine metabolites may be useful to identify risk of toxicity after the initiation of thiopurine drug therapy, and may also be used to monitor adherence to therapy or optimize dosing.
MESOMARK, the first serum-based mesothelin biomarker, continues to be relevant for mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is easiest to treat and has the best outcomes when it is found early and monitored routinely.
FibroMeter utilizes an expert system to detect anomalous profiles and maximize diagnostic reliability.
Prostate Cancer (phi and 4Kscore)
