An international research team is working to harness the power of bioluminescence in a low-cost, noninvasive portable medical imaging device that could one day be applied to many uses in biomedical research, translational medicine and clinical diagnoses.
Scientists have assessed various antigen-specific antibodies and have determined which of them had the strongest neutralizing activity against SARS-CoV-2.READ MORE
Novel chip-based diagnostic technology can detect individual viral antigens in nasal swab samples to identify the viruses that cause COVID-19 and flu with a single test.READ MORE
A new theory developed by researchers at Simon Fraser University suggests a previously overlooked hormone — testosterone — has a critical role in the development of endometriosis. The research could have direct impacts on diagnosis and treatment of the disease, signaling hope for women with endometriosis worldwide.
Scientists have made major advances in understanding and developing treatments for many cancers by identifying genetic mutations that drive the disease. Now researchers have developed a machine learning technique for detecting other modifications to DNA that have a similar effect.READ MORE
Researchers at KU Leuven have developed a 3D printing technique that extends the possibilities of lateral flow testing. With the new printing technique, advanced diagnostic tests can be produced that are quick, cheap, and easy to use.READ MORE
A new study challenges the idea that gray matter is more important than white matter when it comes to cognitive health and function. The findings may help neurologists better predict the long-term effects of strokes and other forms of traumatic brain injury.
To improve diagnosis for patients with complex metastatic cancers, especially those in low-resource settings, researchers at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital developed an artificial intelligence system that uses routinely acquired histology slides to accurately find the origins of metastatic tumors while generating a differential diagnosis.READ MORE
Researchers have discovered that neurons with high levels of the protein apolipoprotein E are more sensitive to degeneration, and therefore Alzheimer's disease.READ MORE
