EARLY DISEASE DETECTION PERFORMING NMR - UNDERSTANDING HOW A BETTER ANALYSIS OF METABOLITES IN SERUM AND URINE CAN HELP

SHARESHARESHARE
Quantification in body fluids like plasma/serum and urine is valuable because it provides information on endogenous compounds produced in the body as well as capturing drugs and their metabolites, in addition, lifestyle-based molecules can be recognized, be it from nutritional habits or physical activity. By performing NMR on body fluid samples, the role of the metabolites is identified in a multitude of conditions, like IBD, cardiovascular, obesity, and diabetes. Being able to profile the metabolome and its changes over time in body fluids is particularly relevant in the clinical area as a potential diagnostic tool and in early disease detection and prevention either on a personal or population-wide level.
