Scientists develop diagnostic test that can detect the virus that causes COVID-19 even when it mutates

A team of scientists led by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has developed a diagnostic test that can detect the virus that causes COVID-19 even after it has gone through mutations. Called the VaNGuard (Variant Nucleotide Guard) test, it makes use of a gene-editing tool known as CRISPR, which is used widely in scientific research to alter DNA sequences […]

Biomarkers in the blood can predict severe outcomes in COVID-19 patients

When patients with COVID-19 arrive in emergency rooms, there are relatively few ways for doctors to predict which ones are more likely to become critically ill and require intensive care and which ones are more likely to enjoy a quick recovery. New Yale research could help them identify important early clues. In a recent study, researchers report that a series […]

New double-balloon catheter receives Canadian patent

Medical University of South Carolina radiologist assistant Cephus E. Simmons Sr., Ph.D., realized that catheters on the market were not optimal for providing the needed diagnostic yield during radiology procedures. He thus created a double-balloon catheter, the Cephus Catheter, for use in prognostic and diagnostic radiology procedures. He founded the company SealCath, LLC, of which he is CEO, to create […]

Genetic data may up diagnostic efficiency for rheumatic disease

(HealthDay)—Converting genotype information into an interpretable probability value for five different inflammatory arthritis-causing diseases could potentially improve the diagnostic efficiency of rheumatic disease, according to a study published in the May 27 issue of Science Translational Medicine. Rachel Knevel, M.D., Ph.D., from Harvard Medical School in Boston, and colleagues developed a Genetic Probability tool (G-PROB) to calculate the probability of […]

New diagnostic techniques and drug may slow and even reverse cognitive decline from aging

A groundbreaking clinical approach has been developed combining new diagnostic techniques to detect a leaking blood-brain barrier (BBB) with a new anti-inflammatory drug that for the first time slows or reverses age-related cognitive decline. In two related studies published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and the University of California, Berkeley (UC) […]
