Blood and Urine Tests That Could Indicate Autism in Children

Researchers believe a new kind of blood and urine test could indicate autism in children. Academics conducted research on damaged proteins and believe that their results are the first of their kind and could eventually lead to earlier detection of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The University of Warwick researchers discovered chemical differences between blood and […]

Anaemia Treatments Set to Rise after Red Blood Cell Discovery

University students made a discovery whilst investigating why the body fails to make enough red blood cells in iron-restricted anaemias. Their findings concern the role of the hormone erythropoietin (EPO) in the production of red blood cells, which sends instructions to bone marrow stem cells, which then receive them through EPO receptors on their outside surfaces. Anaemia is a […]
