454 sequencing identifies HIV drug resistance at early stage

...Life Sciences was blinded. “454 Sequencing can instantly generate hundreds of thousands of long clonal sequence reads that accurately enable the sensitive detection of rare mutations” explained Egholm Michael, Ph.D. vice president of research and development at 454 Life Sciences. “Ultra Deep Sequencing pr...

Novel system developed to turn data into real-time, interactive 3-D images

... the ability to add and remove data, as well as to instantly view internal structures not otherwise visible. "Data viewing is rapid and allows accurate diagnosis in a fraction of the time that physicians must now spend using current image viewing technologies," Clements says. The technology can be app...

Notorious cancer gene may work by destroying messenger

... the protein chops up and destroys the mRNA, which instantly stops production of that protein. Cells use that mechanism to control the production of proteins such as growth factors, which activate genes in response to a hormone or other signal. PMR1 also plays a key role in Cooley's anemia, which cause...

Light-based probe 'sees' early cancers in first tests on human tissue

...ke University's Pratt School of Engineering almost instantly detected the earliest signs of cancer in cells that line internal organs. If the preliminary success of the "optical biopsy" is confirmed through clinical trials, such a device could ultimately provide a particular advantage for early diagnosis, tre...

Five new technologies that promise to transform medicine

...future are links smart pumps that, when signalled, instantly deliver the correct medication.

Carnegie Mellon researchers discover key deficiencies in brains of people with autism

...e to me. ?When someone speaks to me, his words are instantly translated into pictures." To test this relationship between the language and visuospatial systems of the brain, the team used fMRI scans to view the patterns of activation in the brains of autistic and normal participants while they read a series...

Everything in its place: Researchers identify brain cells used to categorize images

... that a new electronic gadget is a telephone, this instantly provides a great deal of information about its relevant parts (speaker, microphone, keypad for dialing, etc.) and functions. While much is known about how the brain processes simple visual features such as colors, angles, and motion-directions, les...

Cincinnati surgeons report new treatment for often-fatal injury

...a rupture immediately, the patient will die almost instantly from blood loss. If the outer layer remains intact, however, a weakened area called a pseudoaneurysm can form, which often bursts later. Surgeons must repair the damaged aorta quickly before it does rupture, killing the patient. The Food and Drug...

Thin tough skin, slow-growing gills protect larval Antarctic fish

...t -2 degrees Celsius, internal fluids would freeze instantly and the baby fish would die." "This 0.7 of a degree Celsius is small but very significant," Cziko said. "In adults, we find ice in their bodies but these small crystals don't grow because of antifreeze proteins. Finding that larval fish don't have e...

'Word-vision' brain area confirmed

...mans have an uncanny ability to skim through text, instantly recognizing words by their shape--even though writing developed only about 6000 years ago--long after humans evolved. Thus, neuroscientists have hotly debated whether an area of the cortex called the Visual Word Form Area (VWFA) is truly a specific ...

Insects, viruses could hold key for better human teamwork in disasters

...n complete global information being made available instantly to all responders is fundamentally flawed," Contractor said. "Instead, we need to develop a strategy that leverages cutting-edge research in information technology to enable the rapid assembly and deployment of ad hoc, flexible networks of responders...

Novel ultrafast laser detection of cancer cells also may improve understanding of stem cells

...se changes, registered by an imaging spectrometer, instantly identify cancer-modified mitochondria in cells gone wrong. Mitochondria are known as the power pack of cells, energizing them like batteries do flashlight bulbs. "There are hundreds of mitochondria, sometimes thousands, in a cell," says Gourley. "To...

Scientists develop new color-coded test for protein folding

...rsity scientists have developed a simple test that instantly changes color when a protein molecule attached to a gold nanoparticle folds or unfolds. The new technique, which works on the same principle as ordinary pH tests that measure the acidity of water, is described in the March 2005 issue of the journal C...
