A GPS for inside your body

Published: Mon, 20 Aug 2018 08:51:58 EDT

Scientists have developed a system that can pinpoint the location of ingestible implants inside the body using low-power wireless signals.

The eyes may have it, an early sign of Parkinson's disease

Published: Thu, 16 Aug 2018 11:44:33 EDT

The eyes may be a window to the brain for people with early Parkinson's disease. People with the disease gradually lose brain cells that produce dopamine, a substance that helps control movement. Now a new study has found that the thinning of the retina, the lining of nerve cells in the back of the eye, is linked to the loss of such brain cells.

Light-emitting nanoparticles could provide a safer way to image living cells

Published: Wed, 15 Aug 2018 13:05:34 EDT

A research team has demonstrated how light-emitting nanoparticles can be used to see deep in living tissue. Researchers hope they can be made to attach to specific components of cells to serve in an advanced imaging system that can pinpoint even single cancer cells.

Blood test could detect kidney cancer up to 5 years earlier

Published: Mon, 13 Aug 2018 11:34:56 EDT

Scientists have discovered that a marker in the blood could help predict the risk that a person will develop kidney cancer.

The danger of coronary artery compression in children is more common than we think

Published: Mon, 13 Aug 2018 08:27:48 EDT

The incidence of coronary artery compression in children fitted with epicardial pacemakers may be slightly more common than previously believed, say noted cardiologists.

PET tracer identifies estrogen receptor expression differences in breast cancer patients

Published: Mon, 06 Aug 2018 10:42:45 EDT

In metastatic breast cancer, prognosis and treatment is largely influenced by estrogen receptor (ER) expression of the metastases. However, little is known about ER expression across metastases throughout the body and surrounding normal tissue. Using a PET tracer, researchers have been able to identify differences in ER expression, which could help guide treatment for metastatic breast cancer patients.

New method refines cell sample analysis

Published: Thu, 02 Aug 2018 14:15:53 EDT

Innovation in the field of biomedicine: Researchers have developed a novel method which increases more than tenfold the number of proteins that can be visualized per sample, making it possible to generate a comprehensive map of cellular organization across the various cellular states. This highly sophisticated and refined view can be used to advance precision medicine and is already being applied in cancer medicine.

Soccer heading may be riskier for female players

Published: Tue, 31 Jul 2018 10:42:56 EDT

Researchers have found that women who play soccer may be more at risk than their male counterparts. According to a new study, female soccer players exhibit more extensive changes to brain tissue after repetitive 'heading' of the soccer ball.

Nano-optic endoscope sees deep into tissue at high resolution

Published: Mon, 30 Jul 2018 12:03:21 EDT

Experts in endoscopic imaging and pioneers of flat metalens technology have teamed up to develop a new class of endoscopic imaging catheters -- termed nano-optic endoscopes -- that overcome the limitations of current systems.

Dense breast notification and insurance legislation analysis

Published: Sat, 28 Jul 2018 08:40:54 EDT

Increased awareness of breast tissue density masking cancer and thus decreasing the diagnostic sensitivity of mammography has brought about relevant state-level policies. This new study examines which characteristics of breast density state-level policies were associated with increased use of downstream breast ultrasound for enhancing earlier detection of breast cancer.
