Comparison of novel risk markers
for improvement in cardiovascular risk assessment in intermediate-risk individuals.
The Exeter group specialises in identifying which symptoms predict cancer to aid early diagnosis, however most of their work centres around quantifying known risk markers
Thus increased prevalence of hyperglycemia and its association with NAFLD is an indicator of its strong role as a predictive risk marker
in our population.
First, is GDF-15 a risk marker
or a causative risk factor, or more importantly, what are the circumstances under which GDF-15 is just a marker of risk vs a causative factor?
WIC participants had higher prevalences of markers of risk for poor maternal or infant health outcomes than eligible nonparticipants, but both groups had higher prevalences of risk markers
than ineligible women, suggesting that many eligible women and their children might benefit from WIC services.
The most basic risk of error or potential for misreporting comes from the possibility that an issuer reports a higher average risk score or set of risk markers
than was truly present in the issuer's pool.
CRP is an independent risk marker
for coronary events in individuals without overt hyperlipidemia, thus adding prognostic information to cardiovascular risk assessment.
noted that "Lower FXII activity is not a risk factor; rather, it simply represents a risk marker
for thrombosis (1).
Future experimental studies will be needed to confirm whether the observed association between oral health behaviour and cardiovascular disease is in fact causal or merely a risk marker
As of now, only high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) has been endorsed by the NACB as meeting all the risk marker
requirements needed for routine clinical practice1.
The present study addresses the issue of periodontal disease as a risk marker
for mortality by evaluating the relationship between periodontitis and premature death 16 years after the diagnosis of periodontitis.
1) Mean platelet volume (MPV), a simple and reliable index of platelet size that correlates with the functional status of platelets, is an emerging risk marker
A biological risk marker
would be able to turn these grave statistics around, as aggressive tissues would be detected before they were able to invade the rest of the body.
The best interpretation of these findings is that preeclampsia is a risk marker
of patients or metabolic disease," the authors wrote, adding that such women should he monitored closely and advised of the importance of lifestyle and dietary changes to help minimize future problems.
