Researchers from MIT have developed a wearable ultrasound patch that can image breast tissue, potentially facilitating the home detection of breast cancer. The patch can be attached a bra, and shows promise in detecting small cysts.
Proteins in the brain and plasma of individuals with sporadic Alzheimer’s disease are altered, supporting the hypothesis that plasma biomarkers have utility in predicting early onset in cognitively unimpaired populations.
The high sensitivity and specificity of ddPCR assays makes the approach well-suited for screening diseases and diagnosing cancer subtypes. Here, we explore some of the ways in which medical researchers are using the technology to pioneer detection of circulating biomarkers for liquid biopsies.
EUAs exist under FDA regulation to improve the availability of medical countermeasures, such as vaccines and diagnostic tests, during public health emergencies. With future pandemics a tangible possibility, further EUAs for other PCR tests and vaccines are all but certain.
A new study has revealed that using functional magnetic resonance techniques shows the differences in the spontaneous activity of the brain in people with Down syndrome compared to the general population.
The Heatrich-BS assay is a novel low-cost sequencing method for low-cost cancer testing.
