Highly sensitive microsphere-based assay for early detection of type I diabetes

12 agosto 2014

A rapid, highly sensitive assay technique for measuring type 1 diabetes mellitus marker autoantibodies can provide better temporal resolution of disease onset and progression, researchers report. «This is a clever combination of the several existing techniques, the result of which is a more sensitive, non-radioactive, clinically-relevant assay,» says the senior author on the paper. «It is our hope that this technique will become a useful tool for early detection of Islet Cell Autoantibodies in at risk patients.»
