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 […]

Psoriatic Arthritis Management

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic, autoimmune, inflammatory form of arthritis that affects 5-25% of patients afflicted by the skin condition psoriasis. In almost 60% of PsA cases, it presents in a few joints (1-4) but becomes polyarticular as the disease progresses. Polyarthritis affects both sides symmetrically and in one out of three PsA patients, it is often associated with […]

Super-Resolution Microscopy vs. Electron Microscopy

Skip to: Super-Resolution Microscopy Electron Microscopy Disadvantages of Electron Microscopy SRM vs. EM: Two Powerful Tools for the Researcher Conventional light microscopy has its limits. Light, being a wave, is subject to diffraction which severely limits the size of structures one can resolve. To be able to observe parts of an organism smaller than this, other techniques need to be […]
