Scientists Identify Previously Undetected Drug-resistant Forms of HIV

...novative genome sequencing technology that quickly detects rare viral mutations was used during the study. We found that the fraction of HIV patients that harboured resistance mutations is at least twice as high as previously thought, said Dr. Kozal, who also directs the HIV Program at the VA Connecticut H...

Now, FISH on a Chip for Quicker, Cost-effective Cancer Diagnosis

... in situ hybridization (FISH), a complex test that detects mutations in chromosomes for a number of different types of cancer. It is based on a microfluidic chip the size of a microscope slide, developed by Chris Backhouse, professor of electrical engineering, and cancer scientist Dr. Linda Pilarski, that ...

New Cervical Cancer Test Increases the Detection Rate of Abnormal Cells

...ew computerised screening test for cervical cancer detects more abnormalities than the traditional smear test , according to a study published on bmj.com today. It could also lead to fewer women needing to be re-tested and might allow for longer intervals in-between testing, says Elizabeth Davey and her co...

New Electro-chemical Biosensor to Check Food Contamination

... developed a new electro-chemical biosensor, which detects the presence of very small amounts of atrazine, one of the most widely used herbicides in agriculture and which also has very long lasting effects on the environment as well as antibiotics in food. The biosensor is faster, more portable and econom...

UCLA Imaging Study Reveals How Pure Oxygen Harms the Brain

...g two different breathing scenarios. The technique detects subtle increases in blood flow triggered by the activation of different parts of the brain, causing these regions to glow or "light up" on the color scan. The researchers scanned the brains of 14 healthy children, ages 8 15, as they inhaled 100 p...

MRE, An Accurate Tool for Non-invasive Diagnosis of Liver Diseases

...eers. The researchers found that MRE accurately detects fibrosis with high sensitivity and specificity. Researchers also found that steatosis, which is deposits of fatty acids and triglycerides in liver cells and a common condition in patients with liver disease, did not interfere with detection of fibros...

FDA Reaffirms Policy Barring MSM From Donating Blood

...d that blood banks use nucleic acid testing, which detects HIV and hepatitis earlier than older testing methods. In addition, HIV is increasingly transmitted through heterosexual sex, and women account for more than one-quarter of all new HIV/AIDS cases in the U.S., according to CDC. FDA on Wednesday in a ...

Detecting Cold, Feeling Pain: Study Reveals Why Menthol Fresh

...eveals one of the key mechanisms by which the body detects temperature sensation. But in so doing it also illuminates a mechanism that mediates how the body experiences intense stimuli temperature, in this case that can cause pain. As such, the receptor known as menthol receptor TRPM8 -- provides a targ...

Blood Test may Help Signal Tumor's Remission, Return in Throat Cancer Patients

A blood test that detects proteins commonly released by a growing tumor could one day become a useful tool for monitoring the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation treatment in people with advanced throat cancer, according to a study published in the June 1, 2007, issu...

Menthol Receptor-A Thermosensitivity Determinant in Cold Temperature

...the University of Wisconsin, the menthol receptor detects a wide range of cold temperatures and relays the information to the brain. The finding solves the mystery of how important the ion channel TRPM8 is for alerting the body to cold temperatures.TRPM8 is the primary, if not sole, determinant of thermo...

Second CyberKnife(R) System to Meet Growing Demand for Radiosurgery

Kozal, associate professor of medicine at Yale and senior author of the retrospective study that used samples from an earlier clinical trial, presented the findings today at the 16th International HIV Drug Resistance Workshop ...

New Invention to Detect Blood Clots

...s which enter the skull up to three centimeter. It detects clots based on the differential NIR light absorption of bleeding as opposed to non bleeding parts of the brain. The signals are then sent back to the scanner. The new device showed that the patient had large clot. This was then confirmed by the CT ...

Researchers Discover Proteins That Protect Against Skin Cancer

...an stop DNA replication from even starting when it detects damage in its own DNA – this gives the DNA repair mechanisms in the cell the time to find and repair the damage,' he said. Using an innovative new technique to visualize the replication of DNA strands exposed to ultraviolet radiation, Kaufmann and...
