Biomarkers of Kawasaki Disease

Biomarkers of Kawasaki Disease :

Filamin C*** is a protein that helps maintain the structural integrity of heart and skeletal muscle.

Meprin A***is an enzyme that breaks down proteins and which is known to regulate the activities of other proteins linked to inflammation.

Both of these markers could be used to identify patients with Kawasaki disease accurately using tests that are readily amenable for routine medical use.
