Poster prize - "suPAR - A future prognostic biomarker in Emergency Medicine"

Denmark, December 1, 2014.

New data from the first Danish Interventional Study done in Hillerød University Hospital in Denmark and based on 6000 patients was presented at the 6´th Danish Emergency Medicine Conference in November, 2014.

Data are based on all medical patients coming to the Emergency Room (ER), and are thus very representative for the most common diseases seen in any Emergency Room incl. not only bacterial or viral infections but also CVD, cardiac cases, lung diseases and comorbidities.

The poster titled "suPAR - A future prognostic biomarker in Emergency Medicine" was awarded a prize because of the solid study design and the diligence with which the data was collected, calculated and presented.

Data shows that the current Danish Emergency Process triage system needs to be improved with a prognostic biomarker evaluation -  and suPAR is the best choice!

The conclusion is clear:

"In unselected patients admitted to an Emergency Department, suPAR is an independant marker of short-term mortality.

suPAR could potentially help clinicians in the initial risk assessment of acutely admitted patients".

  • Launch of suPARnostic® Quick Triage 2nd edition

Denmark, October 2, 2014.

2nd edition of the suPARnostic® Quick Triage test device has been launched and is now available for sale.
It has been validated on the Quick Test Reader and is living up to the standards of CE IVD.

The 2nd edition has several advantages compared to 1st edition:

  • Fewer method updates as this will now only be necessary per batch and not monthly anymore
  • New coating on the membrane allows longer and more consistent stability and better robustness of the assay
  • Prevents reading mistakes as the indication for test (T) and control (C) lines are not upside down

For the hospitals Quick Triage can provide:

  • Fast prognosis for patient survival
  • Assistance in Emergency Room (ER) processes
  • Simplistic overview in a stressful environment

"Blood test can save lives" in Danish newspapers

Denmark, August 14, 2014.

The Danish newspapers Berlingske Tidende and BT has published a 16-page guide under the title "Blood test can save lives".

The guide tells everything about suPAR, how lifestyle changes can change your suPAR level and thereby your prognosis, including an interview with Jørgen Thorball who changed his lifestyle because he wanted to lower his suPAR level.

The guide also talks about Hvidovre University Hospital where all patients in the acute care medical department, as part of the process of assessing disease severity and triaging of patients upon admission to the hospital, are now being tested with suPAR, and Director of Research Ove Andersen from Hvidovre Hospital is interviewed.

You can read the guide (in Danish) here: "Blodtest kan redde liv"

The newspaper BT also had a 2-page article on the same topic on July 30, 2014.
BT is a tabloid newspaper with a very "easy to understand" vocabulary, therefore the language is not very scientific but gives a very good description of the benefits for anyone taking a suPAR test.

You can read the article (in Danish) here: "Simpel blodtest kan redde dit liv"

We have made an english translation of the article here: "Simple Blood Test Can Save Your Life"
