Immune Response Differentiates Malaria from Other Infections

Malaria affects around 200 million people around the world but its non-specific symptoms, coupled with a lack of access to testing facilities, mean it is difficult to distinguish from other infectious diseases. More...

Cause of NMO Illuminated by High-Tech Microscope

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO), also known as Devic's disease or Devic's syndrome, is a heterogeneous condition consisting of the simultaneous inflammation and demyelination of the optic nerve (optic neuritis) and the spinal cord (myelitis) and it can be monophasic or recurrent. More...

Blood Test Predicts Vaccine Immunogenicity

A blood test early after vaccination can predict whether vaccines based on living, modified viruses have had the desired effect within seven days of vaccination. More...

New Test May Predict Gestational Diabetes Better

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during a woman's pregnancy, increasing the mother's risk of delivering a large-for-gestational-age baby, which can lead to pre-term birth, fetal injury, perinatal mortality and cesarean delivery. More...

Automated Test Screens for HTLV-I/II Viruses

Human T-lymphotropic viruses, type I (HTLV-I) and type II (HTLV-II), were the first human retroviruses discovered and are closely related but distinct retroviruses that can infect humans. HTLV-I is known to cause a type of cancer, referred to as adult T-cell leukemia and lymphoma, and a demyelinating disease called HTLV-I associated myelopathy/Tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP).

Ancillary Tests Developed for Salivary Gland Pathology

Salivary gland tumors represent a diverse set of tumors with a broad range of biologic behaviors, ranging from completely benign tumors to low-grade malignancies to high-grade malignancies. More...

Ultrasensitive ELISA Enables Detection of Interferon

Researchers have developed a method for ultrasensitive detection of interferon alpha protein linked to multiple autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and dermatomyositis. The technique will aid the diagnosis and treatment, and has also begun to reveal differential levels and cellular sources among different autoimmune diseases. More...
