Clinical cases

  • Exome sequencing: new diagnostic tool for mitochondrial disease

    The clinical laboratory plays a very important role in the diagnosis of mitochondrial diseases through biochemical and molecular studies. But the wide range of clinical manifestations and clinical phenotypes makes diagnosis very difficult. The implementation of next generation sequencing (NGS) approach for the diagnosis of mitochondrial diseases such as exome sequencing has become a powerful tool to achieve the definitive diagnosis of many patients.

  • Liver transplantation: biomarkers for diagnostic and prediction of treatment response

    Serum liver function tests, tumor markers such as alpha-fetoprotein, pharmacological monitoring and pharmacogenetic studies are very useful laboratory test to improve the management of patients undergoing liver transplantation.
