Akers Biosciences Completes Clinical Trial For Rapid Diabetic Ketoacidosis Breath Test

THOROFARE, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 11/28/16 -- Akers Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKER) (AIM: AKR.L), ("Akers Bio" or the "Company"), a developer of rapid health information technologies, has completed a clinical trial for BreathScan® DKA, the first single-use, non-invasive breath test to rapidly screen for diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes caused by a lack of insulin in the body. The clinical trial was performed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, on patients admitted to the emergency department with suspected ketoacidosis. The results were highly successful, with sensitivity (a true positive result) of 91% and specificity (a true negative result) of 93%. The overall agreement between the BreathScan® DKA test and the gold standard hospital blood test was 92%. The BreathScan® DKA test utilizes Akers Bio's proprietary MPC Biosensor Technology, which permits the rapid identification of medical or metabolic conditions through biomarkers in exhaled breath condensate. BreathScan® DKA is a first-in-class device that detects the presence of ketones in a person's breath condensate. Ketones are present in the blood befor Continue reading >>

    You don't need to be in DKA to get ketosis. It's probably because he hasn't been eating enough/is sick. It is not uncommon for people who have stomach viruses to burn ketones.
    In nondiabetic persons, ketonuria may occur during acute illness or severe stress.

Breath Ketone Testing: A New Biomarker For Diagnosis And Therapeutic Monitoring Of Diabetic Ketosis

Go to: 1. Introduction Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening condition that occurs predominantly in patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes mellitus and is a consequence of a lack of insulin production by pancreatic islet cells, but it may also occur in patients with type 2 diabetes with poorly controlled blood glucose concentration or other diseases [1]. Diabetic ketosis and ketoacidosis are mainly caused by a lack of insulin or an inappropriate rise in blood glucagon concentration that leads to sugar, protein, fat, water, electrolyte, and acid-base imbalance. Identifying a testing method with high sensitivity and specificity would facilitate the early diagnosis and treatment of diabetic ketosis. Ketone bodies are produced when the liver metabolizes fatty acids, including acetone, β-hydroxybutyrate, and acetoacetic acid: β-hydroxybutyrate can be converted into acetoacetic acid and accounts for 78% of all ketones in the body, followed by acetoacetic acid (20%) and acetone (2%). Clinically, when making the diagnosis of DKA, blood ketone concentration is generally inferred from the urinary ketone concentration. Commonly used detection methods for urinary ketones a Continue reading >>

What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus. Signs and symptoms may include vomiting, abdominal pain, deep gasping breathing, increased urination, weakness, confusion, and occasionally loss of consciousness. A person's breath may develop a specific smell. Onset of symptoms is usually rapid. In some cases people may not realize they previously had diabetes. DKA happens most often in those with type 1 diabetes, but can also occur in those with other types of diabetes under certain circumstances. Triggers may include infection, not taking insulin correctly, stroke, and certain medications such as steroids. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids which produces acidic ketone bodies. DKA is typically diagnosed when testing finds high b

The concentration of acetone in plasma, urine, and breath, and the rates of acetone production and elimination in breath and urine were determined and the rates of vivo metabolism were calculated. Plasma acetone concentration ...
