A newly defined threshold for the concentration of the cytokine CXCL13 may improve the diagnosis of neuroborreliosis. The clinical diagnosis of this disease, which is caused by infections from tick bites, is still difficult and often occurs long after infection. CXCL13 now makes it possible to diagnose neuroborreliosis more quickly and start treatment earlier. In the study conducted by the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences (KL Krems), a concentration of CXCL13 in the cerebrospinal fluid of > 271 pg/ml was identified with a very high statistical certainty as the threshold value for a better diagnosis of neuroborreliosis.

On Wednesday, June 5, 2024, the "Achterl" was once again raised to science at the Weinhof Grill in Nußdorf ob der Traisen: As part of the research wine tavern "Heurika! Science comes to the Heurigen!", Prim. Assoc. Prof. Univ.-Doz. Dr. Thomas Eiwegger, Head of the Clinical Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine at St. Pölten University Hospital and Head of the "Clinical Immunology" scientific working group at KL Krems, together with Dr. Pia Gattinger, biotechnologist at the Department of Immunopathology at the Medical University of Vienna and Dr. Stephan Pernkopf, Deputy Governor of Lower Austria and Univ. Prof. Dr. Markus Hengstschläger, geneticist at the Medical University of Vienna on the topic of "The future of allergy research - recognizing, understanding, treating".


The nuclear protein Ki67 is a meaningful biomarker for tumour aggressiveness and for the success of surgical therapy in pleural mesothelioma, a malignant disease of the pleura. This is the clear and promising result of an international study now published by Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences (KL Krems) in collaboration with Gazi University, Ankara, Turkey. The study compared the survival rates and overall survival of patients with high and low expression of Ki67 in tumour tissue. It was found that low expression was associated with significantly better prognosis and a better response to surgery for those affected.

In der jetzt in Cell Death & Disease publizierten Arbeit gelang es einem internationalen Team, den bislang unbekannten Effekt des Proteins auf Interferon-abhängige Signalwege festzustellen. Die Ergebnisse der Studie deuten an, dass Kenntnisse über die Menge an STAT3β helfen könnten, differenziertere Aussagen über den Verlauf einer AML zu machen.     Die Akute Myeloische Leukämie (AML) ist eine bösartige Erkrankung des blutbildenden Systems, bei der eine große Spannbreite an verschiedenen zellulären und gene

The protein STAT3β has a positive influence on the course of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and could serve as a prognostic marker in the future. These are the outstanding results of a cancer research study at the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences (KL Krems).
