The article “suPAR in Acute Care: A strong marker of disease presence and severity, readmission and mortality. A retrospective cohort study” was recently published in Emergency Medicine Journal.
The study included 4343 consecutively admitted patients from the AMU at a large Danish university hospital (Hvidovre).
The conclusion is again, that in an unselected population of acute medical patients;
“A high suPAR level upon admission to the AMU is a marker of severe disease and increased risk of readmission and mortality after adjusting for all other risk factors …. and suPAR adds information to established prognostic indicators”.
Patients with low suPAR levels have low risk of readmission and mortality, while patients with high suPAR levels have a high risk of adverse events.
