See the suPAR posters during the posterwalk and presentation on April 29 at 11.00 - 11.45:
"suPAR is associated with risk of future acute sugery and post-operative mortality in acutely admitted medical patients" by Jeppe Meyer and
"suPAR is also a strong predictor of mortality for the young acute medical patient"

Denmark, January 23, 2017.
The article “suPAR in Acute Care: A strong marker of disease presence and severity, readmission and mortality. A retrospective cohort study” was recently published in Emergency Medicine Journal.
The study included 4343 consecutively admitted patients from the AMU at a large Danish university hospital (Hvidovre).
The conclusion is again, that in an unselected population of acute medical patients;
"A high suPAR level upon admission to the AMU is a marker of severe disease and increased risk of readmission and mortality after adjusting for all other risk factors .... and suPAR adds information to established prognostic indicators".
Patients with low suPAR levels have low risk of readmission and mortality, while patients with high suPAR levels have a high risk of adverse events.

The suPARnostic® Quick Triage Test is now even more quick, as the plasma sample only has to be centrifuged for 1 minute for normal blood collection tubes (10 minutes for plasma preparation tubes).
This means that the quantitative result of the Quick TriageTest is now available in approx. 20 minutes, making this a perfect solution for the Emergency Room where a fast result is required, and can even be done without use of the clinical laboratory!
Denmark, December 1, 2016.
The abstract "suPAR as a standard prognostic test in the Acute Medical Unit at Hvidovre Hospital" was selected for an oral presentation, and won 1. prize at DEMC7 in Copenhagen, the biggest Emergency Medicine Conference in northern Europe, on November 25.
Line Jee Hartmann Rasmussen from Hvidovre Hospital presented her data on 17.312 acute medical patients measured with suPAR, to verify the prognostic value of suPAR with regard to readmission and survival.
The conclusion is, that high suPAR was associated with
- Increased number and severity of comorbidities
- Longer admission time
- High readmission rate
- High mortality rate
suPAR remained an independent predictor after adjustment for age, sex, Charlson score, and CRP.
