Some sleuths carry a magnifying glass, others sport a stethoscope. In the article “Omen in the Blood,” science journalist Stephen S. Hall tells the story of a disease detective on the trail of an enigmatic and pernicious kidney disease. Plot twists include genetically identical twins, one with the disease, while the other is perfectly healthy; and a suspicious blood protein called suPAR found lurking nearby. But is suPAR the guilty party or an innocent bystander? getAbstract recommends this article to people who might enjoy a medical story that is part science and part mystery. 

In this article, you will learn

  • Why a disease that burns through kidneys puzzles doctors,
  • What one researcher believes is the culprit behind the disease and
  • How new treatments may finally solve this mystery.
