Molecular Analyses to Identify Diagnostic markErs for artery weakeNing (MAIDEN)


This study is designed to identify for circulating markers which signal the activity of a weakened artery. These markers can potentially be used to diagnose the condition more easily and predict clinical outcomes. Findings will also provide deeper insight into the mechanisms behind AAA, highlighting novel targets for drug development.
