Neurofilament light: a narrative review on biomarker utility.

Fac Rev 2021 7;10:46. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02215, USA.

Neurofilament light (NfL) is a scaffolding protein that is located primarily within myelinated axons and that provides increased conduction speed and structural support. In recent years, NfL has been used as a disease biomarker on the basis of the observation that axonal injury results in elevated levels of NfL in cerebrospinal fluid or blood. This review focuses on how cerebrospinal fluid and plasma NfL have been studied in various disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) in relation to neuroinflammation and cognitive dysfunction.

The Current Role of Platelet Function Testing in Clinical Practice.

Semin Thromb Hemost 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Lismore Cancer and Haematology Unit, Lismore Base Hospital, Lismore, New South Wales, Australia.

Platelet dysfunction, whether hereditary or acquired, may increase an individual's risk of spontaneous, posttraumatic, or postoperative bleeding. Conversely, increased platelet reactivity on antiplatelet agents following vascular (in particular, coronary vascular) intervention may increase the risk of thrombosis and adverse vascular events. The aim of platelet function testing is to identify and characterize platelet dysfunction in these settings to inform bleeding/ thrombosis risk and guide perioperative prophylactic management strategies.
