9th World Biomarkers Congress. Madrid, Spain. December 07-08, 2017

World Biomarkers 2017 is organized around the theme: “A New Era of Diagnosis and Clinical Research”. World biomarkers, in the hands of clinical investigators, provide a dynamic and powerful approach to understanding the spectrum of diseases with

10th World Congress on Biomarkers & Clinical Research. Baltimore, USA. October 18-20, 2017

Conference Series Ltd Conferences invites all the participants across the globe to attend ‘10th World Congress on Biomarkers and Clinical Research’ during October 18 – 20, 2017 in Baltimore, USA which includes prompt Keynote presentations, Oral talks,

DNA methylation markers in colorectal cancer state-of-the-art

Colorectal is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. There were over 1.3 million new colorectal cancer cases worldwide, of which approximately 50% died as a result of the disease in 2012. Like all cancers, CRC

Fish responses to ocean acidification comes with a cost

Ocean acidification is currently recognized as a major threat to marine ecosystems and has become one of the fastest growing research fields in marine sciences. The excessive amount of anthropogenic carbon dioxide is making our oceans warmer

Hybrid 2d-nanomaterials in electrochemical immunosensing of clinical biomarkers

A key to develop nanodevices with high performance for biosensors applications is to explore advanced functional nanomaterials . Among these materials , 2D – based nanohybrids clearly stand out in the field of electrochemical immunosensors for clinical

Enrichment design accommodating the biomarker misclassification

Increased understanding of the mechanistic heterogeneity of diseases has brought us to the era of molecularly targeted therapies (MTAs) in clinical oncology. The MTAs block the growth of cancer cells by identifying and attacking specific biomarker pathways

Finding aroma clues in the human breath to diagnose diseases

History of human odor analysis in disease diagnosis The use of the sense of smell as an indicator of human disease probably originated with Hippocrates (circa 400 BC). Early medical practitioners recognized that the presence of human

Secret of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) hidden in small molecules

Diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a great challenge for today’s medicine. It also results from not fully explained pathomechanisms underlying their development and progression. The group of CVDs is a very complex mixture of

Replacement of saturated with unsaturated fats had no impact on vascular function but beneficial effects on lipid biomarkers and blood pressure

Disease of the heart and blood vessels (referred to as cardiovascular disease (CVD)) is the primary cause of death worldwide. A key public health recommendation for reducing the risk of developing CVD is to lower our intake of

Disregarded drivers of diversity within tumors

The past decades of cancer research have uncovered the staggering extent and widespread prevalence of intratumor heterogeneity, which refers to the differences between the genomes of cells in a tumor. In theory, each cancer arises from a

Spectroscopic platform to cut time and resources needed to quantify cancer cell biomarker concentrations

Survivability of a living cell, tissue and ultimately a being is influenced by the state of proteolytic degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) components; if the dynamics of the degradation is perturbed, regulation of many biological processes such

CD64 as a sepsis marker

Sepsis is the most common cause of mortality in critically ill patients worldwide. Despite with huge costs, it is difficult to treat sepsis. Early diagnosis sepsis and timely treatment are vital to improving outcomes and lightening the

Highlighting inflammatory markers in anxiety disorders

Anxiety disorders, often originating early in life, are very common and effect 28.3% of the population. With this high prevalence comes an associated cost to the economy, mostly related to the extensive overuse of primary care services

New and future strategies for asthma control in children

Asthma continues to be a predominant health concern in children despite advances in medical care. Children are being diagnosed with asthma at earlier ages, and the adverse effects of early-onset, poorly controlled asthma can last throughout childhood

Making it easier to study personalized genomic biomarkers of lung disease

In the past few years, there has been significant progress in understanding how lung disease develops and predict who will respond to certain targeted therapies by obtaining lung tissue from research participants and studying changes in mechanistic

Glutathione: a molecular whistleblower for Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease: Neurons in select pockets of the brain begin to die off, slowly and incrementally erasing an individual’s memory and eroding their individuality. It is a devastating disease, one that affects more than 36 million individuals
