An inventive blood test for diabetes

...n trying out a new blood test. The HgA1c test can detect 60 per cent of cases of diabetes and does not need the person involved to fast. The researchers carried out the test in 1,000 male patients aged 40 to 60, none of whom had previously been diagnosed with diabetes. They found 4 per cent of them had dia...

New device for discerning Osteoarthritis

...ge of cartilage. They have found it can be used to detect early Osteoarthritis, before it's visible by X ray. Certain features of DEI correlate well with the clinical stages of arthritis. They want to get DEI into clinics to screen for Osteoarthritis, so it can be detected earlier and management started s...

Early Warning System For Breast Cancer

...ify the need for aggressive treatment.// A test to detect the protein is still more than a year away from clinical trials. But promising early results show that RhoC can serve as a marker for breast tumors. RhoC, whose full name is RhoC-GTPase, is an enzyme involved in changing the internal skeleton of a ...

Hepatitis E virus made impotent

...irus could also be used for diagnostic purposes to detect the presence of Hepatitis E virus. For this, the team had produced recombinant viral proteins which could be used to generate an antigen-antibody reaction, that can be detected during tests.They also added that the formation on the viral gen...

Computer Program can assist to detect Heart Attack

.... Several studies have shown that the network can detect heart attack in patients with chest pain, but Baxt and his colleagues set out to see how well the technology worked when some of the information it uses to make a diagnosis was missing. The researchers applied the technology to 1,400 adults who arri...

The investigators found that women who developed gestational diabetes were twice as likely to have children with chromosomal defects--a preva...

Detecting Colorectal Cancer

An innovative test to detect colorectal cancer may be certain and more comfortable than current methods. Researchers in Boston, have developed a new technique that identifies a specific protein in a patient's stool that is only present in cancerous colorectal cells. Researchers ...

Combined scan gives exact cancer diagnosis

...tissue is dense and so it's not always possible to detect the border between malignant and normal areas. Doctors at the University of Texas now say that combining positron emission tomography (PET) with the more conventional computed tomography (CT) scan gives a more detailed diagnosis of such tumours. In...

High Levels of Protein Linked to Brain Shrinkage

Participants with more extensive brain atrophy were more likely to have higher blood levels of homocysteine, according to a team led by Dr. Perminder Sachdev of the University of New South Wales in Australia. The presence of vascular ...

Camera gives hope for detection of breast cancer

...of 60 tumours, the new system proved to be able to detect more malignancies than the standard gamma camera. It was also more sensitive in the detection of small tumours, of less than one centimetre in diameter. Mammography is very useful, they say, but maybe scintimammography, with the new camera, might com...

Photographs as a parameter

Retinal photographs could help detect people who are at high risk of suffering a stroke, say US researchers. They say their technique is cheap enough to be used by opticians and GPs to mass-screen patients.Strokes are caused by brain cell death due to bleeding from damaged blood vessels....

Hormone Therapy applicable for Prostate Cancer

Hormone suppression may lower PSA levels suggesting the prostate cancer has been cut back, which might be an incorrect assumption. ...

Latest device for identifying Melanomas

...n, SolarScan also can monitor lesions over time to detect changes, keeping a record in the Body Map software so the lesion can be rechecked over time to ascertain whether it has changed in color or shape. It monitors lesions for subtle changes that may not be apparent through normal visual skin exams. "The...
