  • Patent number: 11718880
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a marker and a diagnosis method for the noninvasive diagnosis of myocardial infarction. According to the method disclosed by the present invention, second-generation sequencing and QPCR methods are used to find that there are significant differences in the expression of ING1, RAE1, DOCK10, KDSR, IVD, and MAEA in the blood of patients with myocardial infarction and normal subjects, that is, the expression of ING1, RAE1, DOCK10, KDSR, IVD and MAEA can be detected to determine whether the subjects suffer from myocardial infarction. According to the correlation between the two, the present invention develops a kit for the diagnosis of the myocardial infarction, and the kit is used for the diagnosis of the myocardial infarction by detecting the expression of ING1, RAE1, DOCK10, KDSR, IVD and MAEA. The diagnostic kit can be used for the early diagnosis of diseases, and has wide application prospect clinically.

  • Patent number: 11613782
    Abstract: The invention provides a gene signature for use in determining a likelihood of a latent tuberculosis (TB) infection in a subject transitioning to active TB disease. The gene signature comprises at least SEPT4 and BLK, and optionally also GAS6 and/or CD1C. Expression levels of these genes are detected in a sample from the subject, and the ratios of expression of at least two of the above genes are calculated (e.g. SEPT4:BLK, SEPT4:CD1C, GAS6:BLK and/or GAS6:CD1C). A score is assigned to each ratio, the score being indicative of the likelihood of the latent TB infection transitioning into active TB disease, based on the ratio for the respective gene pair. The subject can be identified as having a latent TB infection that is likely to transition into active TB disease or that is not likely to transition into active TB disease based on the score or on the average of the scores.
