The Immune System Can Help Us To Diagnose Biliary Tract Cancer
How do you detect a dangerous cancer if you do not know exactly what to look for or where? New research into biliary tract cancer conducted at the University of Copenhagen can pave the way for early detection of the deadliest cancers.
Molecular Signatures of Age-Related Macular Degeneration Identified
The discovery of molecular signatures of the incurable eye disease, age-related macular degeneration, could improve diagnosis and treatment.
New Biomarker Speeds Up Identification of Lung Disease
A new diagnostic method could help identify one of the deadliest types of interstitial lung disease sooner, allowing for faster treatment and improved patient outcomes.
Spike in Hepatitis Cases Linked to Adeno-Associated Virus 2
In two new research papers, scientists have identified a link between recent cases of acute hepatitis in children and adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2). The studies suggest a co-infection with AAV2 and another virus, such as adenovirus, may be the cause of the increase in cases.
Lowest Risk of Death In Adults Who Exercise Four Times More Than Recommended Minimum
The results of a new study show that adults who exercised two to four times longer than the recommended minimum amount of physical activity had a significantly lower risk of death from all causes.
Hair Loss and Low Sex Drive Added to List of Long COVID Symptoms
Research from the University of Birmingham has revealed that symptoms of long COVID are broader than expected and include hair loss and sexual dysfunction.
Genomic Signatures Could Explain Why COVID-19 Is Severe in Some People
Researchers have discovered key human genomic signatures that could help explain why COVID-19 is severe in some people and mild in others.
Blood Test Rapidly Indicates Cellular Immunity to SARS-CoV-2
Researchers have developed a new blood test that can indicate a person's status of cellular immunity to SARS-CoV-2 within just 48 hours.
Artificial Intelligence Speeds Up Sepsis Detection
An artificial intelligence system has been designed to detect sepsis earlier, by scouring medical records and clinical notes to identify at-risk patients.
Novel Platform Could Help Diagnose Diseases by Isolating Biomarkers in Tears
Going to the doctor might make you want to cry, and according to a new study, doctors could someday put those tears to good use.
