Three markers predict kidney injury after surgery; Biomarkers for couch potatoes;

> Researchers find three biomarkers that can predict kidney injury soon after surgery. The study could transform the way kidney disease is diagnosed. Release

> How does couch potato behavior among adolescents affect inflammatory and endothelial function markers? Abstract

> No single biomarker can provide high enough discrimination, so it's generally accepted that a panel of biomarkers, combined with some kind of algorithm, is needed. A paper looks at building multi-marker algorithms for disease prediction. Abstract
