INFLACARD: A diagnostic kit to early detect and monitor patients subject to chronic inflammation

DESCRIPTION

  • Identification of 2 circulating inflammatory metabolites triggering AHT
  • High expression of these metabolites in individuals with active clinical and immunological states
  • Metabolites able to induce the main clinical features of AHT in mice
  • On-going biomedical study for monitoring the metabolites in patients with hypertension
