New Delhi: Scientists have identified novel ways of measuring biological markers in the blood, which could be used to diagnose osteoarthritis earlier. The new biochemical test called metabolomics allows the scientists to test for 163 chemical signals at the same time from a single blood sample.
“The search for biomarkers, or traits, which can be used to measure or indicate the effects or progress of a condition is a hugely exciting area of clinical research. The two novel metabolic biomarkers found through our study could indicate increased cartilage breakdown and we now want to study these mechanisms in more detail," Dr Guangju Zhai, lead author on the paper, said. Professor Tim Spector, senior author of the paper added: "Ours is the first study using a metabolomics approach to identify novel metabolic biomarkers for osteoarthritis.” ANI
