    Researchers from Quest Diagnostics and collaborators have found that changes in levels of the cardiovascular risk marker free myeloperoxidase (MPO) appear correlated with an individual's overall mortality risk. The finding, described in a study published last month in PLOS One, indicate that longitudinal measurement of MPO could help physicians assess patients' mortality risk and response to interventions.

    An analysis of 462 million lipid test results has shown mean total cholesterol levels exceed the target in seven of the 17 studied countries. Writing in the European Heart Journal, members of the Global Diagnostics Network (GDN) describe the evaluation of lipid test data generated by nine clinical laboratories working in 17 countries. Seth Martin, lead author of the study and professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, discussed the analysis and the potential implications of its findings in a statement from Quest Diagnostics, the company that leads the GDN.
