NMR advance relies on microscopic detector
...es could also be used to make portable devices for diagnostics
or soil analysis. And because the smaller devices are cheaper to make, they should be affordable even in developing countries where NMR machines are now rare, said Zhang. Asking big questions Maguire got the idea for the project after talking t...
Nobel laureate James Watson receives personal genome in ceremony at Baylor College of Medicine
...Personalized genomes span the gulf between genetic diagnostics
and genomics, said Gibbs. This project brings together research genetics, genetic diagnostics
and genomics into the new vision of personal medicine. All of that is embodied in this project. A ...
Stanford researchers find stem cells in colorectal tumors
... points in cancer, devise new immune and molecular diagnostics
and therapeutics, test them in mice that carry the cancer stem cells and, hopefully, in a few years begin to test them in our patients," Weissman said. The colorectal cancer stem cells highlight the importance of a protein that is a familiar face t...
Identification of genetic risk factor for coeliac disease promises improved treatment
...ture Genetics, could pave the way towards improved diagnostics
and treatments for the common, lifelong complaint. Led by David van Heel, Professor of Gastrointestinal Genetics at Queen Mary, University of London, the study - funded by the charity Coeliac UK, and the Wellcome Trust - has revealed that those su...
Rutgers, Penn researchers capture research dollars to improve prostate cancer diagnostic methods
...ious tissue. Once found, they apply computer-aided diagnostics
to predict the likelihood that it is cancerous based on an images size, shape and texture. In our testing, MRI images revealed several spots of suspicious tissue, but four expert radiologists disagreed as to which ones were cancerous, said Madabhus...
New research identifies anti-viral protein that may predict who might be at risk to develop lupus
...mbers looked and felt perfectly fine. All of their diagnostics
were normal. Our immune system works by distinguishing self from non-self, so that it preferentially attacks foreign microbes. Interferon-alpha is normally a helpful molecule in this regard, leading the fight against invading viruses. Genes produci...
