ViroGates A/S (Birkerod, Denmark) has patented a method of diagnosing and/or prognosticating HIV infection in a subject comprising the steps of: (a) performing in vitro a measurement of the level of a marker in the form of (i) urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR), (ii) soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR), (iii) urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA), (iv) one or more degradation products of (i), (ii) or (iii), and/or (v) an mRNA for (i), (ii) or (iii), in a biological fluid sample from a subject, and (b) using the measurement value obtained to evaluate the state of the subject.
By adding sodium nitrate to the biological fluid at an ionic strength high enough to elute fluoride, chloride, and bromine with the biological fluid, but not high enough to elute iodide, a high degree of purity of the iodide fraction could be achieved in a 2-step procedure, even though the other halides were not separated from each other.
