Background Serostudies are important resources when following pandemics and predicting their further spread, as well as determining the length of protection against reinfection and vaccine development. The aim of this study was to update data on the prevalence of seropositive individuals in Canton Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) from Septemb...

Introduction Serological detection of SARS-CoV-2-specific IgG and IgM antibodies is becoming increasingly important in management of COVID-19 pandemic. Material and methods We are reporting the first results of COVID-19 serological testing in Bosnia and Herzegovina on 2,841 samples collected and analyzed in two medical institutions in Sarajevo. An...

Background: Clinical Chemistry is the backbone of medical treatment, diagnostics, and prevention. The laborato-ries are trying to improve the quality and to reduce diagnostic errors and processing time and safeguard trace-ability of all laboratory procedures to ensure patient safety. Six sigma belongs to statistical quality control and provides a...

Background: Metastasis-Associated in Colon Cancer-1(MACC1) was first identified as a transcriptional activator of the HGF/MET pathway. Deregulation of HGF/MET signaling is reported as a prognostic marker for tumorigenesis, early stage invasion, and metastasis which is associated with poor clinical outcome in breast cancer patients. The aim of the...

BACKGROUND Chromogranin A (CgA) is a 48 kDa glycoprotein, member of the granin family, exists within all type of neurons. CgA was a reable diagnostic biomarker for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). METHODS Measurements of CgA were performed by ELISA method (DRG Instruments GmbH, Germany). CgA levels were measured in serum obtained from 24 healthy subje...

The serum prostate specific antigen for the early detection and screening for prostate cancer are very common used among physicians as the best screening tool for prostate cancer. The result of prostate specific antigen levels discriminates whether or not a prostate biopsy should be performed. The lack of specificity is a limitation of PSA as tumor...

Helminth parasites that inhabit mammalian body surfaces have a highly evolved relationship with the immune system. Many of these resident helminths carry out functions to ensure their survival in the hosts. To attain this objective helminth parasites adopt immunoregulatory mechanisms to counter host’s hostile immune response. Indeed, immunomodulato...

Introduction: Low sensitivity and specificity in traditional laboratory tests became insufficient for accurate diagnostics and initiation of proper treatment of patients infected with bacterial meningitis. High sensitivity C reactive protein (hsCRP) may be an appropriate supplement for rapid diagnosis of bacterial meningitis. The subject of our inv...
