For the first time, we assessed the amplifying T-nanowire transistor assay in quantitating a key diabetic kidney disease (DKD) urinary biomarker in human subjects with type 2 DKD as well as controls. The assay successfully revealed a significantly higher biomarker level in DKD subjects, corroborating the biomarker?s clinical prognostic value.
