Taking 10 resting blood pressure (BP) readings daily for 2 days provides a reliable, stable representation of patients’ resting systolic (S)BP and diastolic (D)BP, according to a study. This approach shows that the current home BP monitoring protocol of twice-daily readings for 4–7 days may be trimmed down to just 48 hours.

A smartwatch photoplethysmography coupled with a mobile application using a machine learning algorithm can passively and accurately detect atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients undergoing cardioversion, albeit with less accuracy in ambulatory individuals with self-reported AF, a proof-of-concept study shows.

Impaired endothelial-dependent microvascular reactivity appears to be predictive of albuminuria progression in Asian patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) who have normal urine albumin levels at baseline, but not in those with microalbuminuria, a prospective longitudinal cohort study suggests.

Role of comprehensive genomic profiling in personalized treatment

Comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) is new but already playing a vital role in the field of oncology as it provides in-depth information on disease biology and helps establish a more accurate insight into the aberration in the pathways that lead to cancer formation as well as, at times, the prognosis. This leads to improved management plan, says an expert.
