Kawasaki disease SkylineDx, Imperial College London, UCSD Partner to Develop Kawasaki Disease Test The test is based on 13 genes that form a gene signature in the blood of children with Kawasaki disease, and it enables KD to be distinguished from other diseases. Boston Children's Mass Spec Study Yields Urine Biomarkers to Diagnose Kawasaki Disease Premium A team of researchers at Boston Children's Hospital has identified a pair of urine biomarkers — filamin C and meprin A — that could be the first to provide accurate early diagnosis of Kawasaki disease. Beyond the SNP Premium Genome-wide association studies have put forward a vast number of SNPs associated with disease. Once you have those SNPs, the search is on for the causal variant.
