Will Sugars Become the Biomarker for Wellness?
« Reply #1 on: July 15, 2008, 12:07:53 AM »
Discovering how to measure sugars in glycoprotein receptor sites that coat healthy cells may be greatest breakthrough in the history of glycomics.  Scientists have established that less healthy cells have fewer glycoproteins.  Determining the amount of vital sugars on the surface of cells may become the biomarker for wellness because healthy cells have an abundance of these sugars.   Report of this discovery was just posted on the educational website of The Endowment for Medical Research at www.endowmentmed.org/ in the NEWS Section and on the Home Page.
