Singapore: Australia based biotech company, Proteomics International Laboratories, has produced and validated a predictive test called PromarkerDfor the diagnosis of diabetic kidney disease (DKD).
PromarkerD is a proteomics-derived predictive (prognostic) test for the diagnosis of DKD, and represents a global breakthrough in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
The ability to accurately predict the onset of DKD via a simple blood test and then provide appropriate clinical treatment to prevent the onset of the disease has the potential to save health care systems globally billions of dollars.
