Newborn Screening Improves Early Detection and Treatment of SCID

Children born with severe combined immune deficiency, the so-called "bubble boy" disease, have the best chance of survival if they undergo a hematopoietic stem cell transplant as soon after birth as possible.  More...

Microarray Immunosignature System Diagnoses Cancer

An innovative technique for early disease detection, called immunosignaturing, relies on a multiplexed system in which the entire population of antibodies circulating in blood at a given time is profiled.  More...

Image: Multiphase polymer systems confine unique antibody-conjugated beads that bind with high sensitivity and specificity to plasma protein biomarkers, eliciting amplified luminescent signals. The signal intensity from the beads is proportional to the levels of disease biomarkers in the blood plasma (Photo courtesy of World Scientific).

Aqueous Two-Phase Systems Enable Homogeneous Immunoassay Multiplexing

A novel test simplifies disease detection by enabling simultaneous detection of multiple proteins in blood plasma in only two hours.  More...

Preeclampsia Biomarker Detected Very Early In Pregnancy

A biomarker has been discovered that could give expecting mothers and their doctors the first simple blood test to reliably predict that a pregnant woman may develop preeclampsia, at least as early as six weeks into the pregnancy. More...

Screening Tool Simplifies Serological Diagnosis of Neurocysticercosis

The availability of a rapid serological diagnosis that targets stage-specific antibodies for human cysticercosis is considered very helpful in control programs for estimating the sero-prevalence or burden of the disease in susceptible population groups. More...

Image: The inexpensive type-1 diabetes microchip test relies on fluorescence-based antibody detection. The innovation is that the glass plates forming the base of each microchip are coated with an array of nanoparticle-sized islands of gold, which intensify the fluorescent signal, enabling reliable antibody detection (Photo courtesy of Prof. Brian Feldman, Stanford University, and Nature Medicine).

Microchip Invented for Faster, Simpler Type-1 Diabetes Diagnosis, Risk Assessment, and Biomarker Discovery

Researchers have succeeded in developing a low-cost, portable, nanotech microchip-based test for diagnosing type-1 diabetes that would speed diagnosis and screening, and enable new approaches to studying how the disease develops. More...
