Gradual Increase in Inflammation-Linked Glycoproteins and a Proatherogenic Lipoprotein Profile in the Early Stages of Psychosis as Characterized by 1H NMR Blood Analysis

Abstract Minimally invasive prognostic markers of inflammation and dyslipidemia in individuals with a risk of psychosis, also called “at-risk mental state” (ARMS), or in the first episode of psychosis (FEP) are of utmost clinical importance to prevent cardiovascular disorders. We analyzed the plasma concentration of inflammation-linked glycoproteins (Glycs) and lipoprotein subclasses by proton nuclear magnetic […]

Glycoprotein and Lipoprotein Profiles Assessed by 1H-NMR and Its Relation to Ascending Aortic Dilatation in Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease

Abstract Introduction: The bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) confers a high risk of ascending aorta dilatation (AAoD), although its progression seems highly variable. Furthermore, the implication of lipoprotein metabolism and inflammation in the mechanisms that underlie AAoD is not fully established. The aim of this study consisted of evaluating the impact of the lipoprotein and glycoprotein profiles […]

GlycA as a new biomarker in rheumatoid arthritis


The research group in Immunology at the University of Oviedo with the participation of Dr. Javier Rodríguez-Carrio has published a study in which one of the variables from our glycoprotein test has been identified as an emerging biomarker for stratification and decision-making in early-stage rheumatoid arthritis. If you want to know more about this publication, […]
