Suicide Risk Could be Detected in Your Blood?
Researchers analyzed a large group of males and detected a series of RNA biomarkers in blood.
Doctors might be able to predict the risk of a person committing suicide soon.
In their latest medical innovation, researchers are on the search for a biological signal of suicide risk in a person’s blood in an attempt to prevent future suicides. The results of a recent study revealed that among a cohort of males being studies, there was a general difference between patients with high suicidal thoughts and those with low suicidal feelings.
This is just the start for a possible way to detect suicide risk. More research is still needed on females in order to determine if the same gene difference exists among them.
