Circulating Tumor Cell Clusters Identified in Head and Neck Cancer Patients

Circulating tumour cell (CTC) clusters isolated from a head and neck cancer (HNC) patient stained positive for pan-cytokeratin −8, 18, 19 (Red), EGFR (Green), DAPI (Blue) and negative for CD45 (not shown). Scale bar represents 10 µm. Credit: Kulasinghe et al 2018, Scientific Reports 8 (746).



"Simple" Threshold Could Predict COPD Breathing Difficulties


A new study provides evidence to support a simple measurement for diagnosing clinically significant airflow obstruction, the key characteristic of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.


New Alzheimer's Blood Test to Start Clinical Study in Autumn


Researchers have used a method to develop a new blood marker capable of detecting whether or not a person has Alzheimer’s disease. If the method is approved for clinical use, the researchers hope eventually to see it used as a diagnostic tool in primary healthcare. This autumn, they will start a trial in primary healthcare to test the technique.


Gastric Stem Cells Fight Bacteria to Protect Themselves Against Cancer


Stem cells are not only key players in tissue regeneration, they are also capable of taking direct action against bacteria. By actively fighting colonizing bacteria, gastric stem cells protect themselves against damage that can lead to cancer.
