Progress Made Towards a Diagnostic Blood Test for Glioblastoma
Researchers are one step further to developing a blood test capable of diagnosing glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain tumor.
Being in Space Destroys More Red Blood Cells
A study has shown that space travel increases red blood cell destruction.
AI for Mammography Reveals Its Decision-Making Process To Aid Physicians
A team has designed an artificial intelligence platform to analyze potentially cancerous lesions in mammography scans to determine if a patient should receive an invasive biopsy. The new algorithm is interpretable, meaning it shows physicians exactly how it came to its conclusions.
Reusable Clip-On Device Assesses Exposure to SARS-CoV-2
Scientists from Yale University have developed a wearable air sampler that has been tested for its ability to detect airborne SARS-CoV-2. The study results are published in Environmental Science and Technology Letters.
Rare Genetic Diseases Rapidly Diagnosed by Mega-Sequencing Approach
A new ultra-rapid genome sequencing approach developed by scientists has been used to diagnose rare genetic diseases in an average of eight hours.
New Genetic Mechanism Can Cause Severe Forms of Male Infertility
Scientists have found that mutations occurring during the reproduction process, when the DNA of both parents is replicated, can result in infertility in men later in life.
Gene Expression Study Could Offer Insights Into the Underlying Causes of Suicide
Research findings suggest that gene expression studies could offer insights into the underlying causes of suicide, a highly complex public health problem that takes the lives of more than 800,000 people each year worldwide.
New Neurological Marker for Attention Deficit Disorder Identified
A study provides evidence of a more robust ADHD biomarker and could contribute towards helping psychiatry become a more precise medical discipline.
New Test Can Identify Cancer in Patients With Non-Specific Symptoms
A University of Oxford study outlines a new type of blood test that can be used to detect a range of cancers and whether these cancers have spread in the body.
Single Blood Sample Can Detect Women at Risk of Pre-Eclampsia
A study of pregnant women’s blood RNA has found specific molecular profiles that identify women at risk of pre-eclampsia. These insights can identify complications before a woman experiences symptoms.
