Smartphone-Based Readerless System Measures Blood Glucose for Early Detection of Prediabetes

Screening for prediabetes typically involves laboratory testing at a healthcare facility or using a portable glucometer for at-home testing. Unfortunately, access and cost may limit widespread screening. Now, researchers have discovered an optimal approach to enhance early detection of prediabetes. More...

Rapid, Non-Invasive Method Diagnoses Type 2 Diabetes by Sniffing Urinary Acetone

A research team working on a new non-invasive screening method for Type 2 diabetes (T2D) has used self-developed proton transfer reaction-mass spectrometry (PTR-MS) to detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in T2D patients' urine samples. More...

Urine Test Accurately Predicts End of Life for Lung Cancer Patients

A new study has found that lung cancer patients can have their risk of mortality accurately predicted within the last four weeks of life by analyzing their urine. This information gives both the patient and their families the chance to prepare for the end of life, while also providing clinicians with more detailed data to inform their care and medication plans. More...

Blood Test Identifies Prediabetics with Highest Risk of Developing Diabetes Before Symptoms Develop

A blood test can identify high-risk, asymptomatic patients with prediabetes who cannot be detected by standard diabetes tests, hemoglobin A1C and glucose. The test meets a critical clinical need as it can be used by physicians to identify patients closest to developing type 2 diabetes and provide treatment to prevent the onset of the disease. More...

Wearable Sensing Patch Enables Rapid Quantitative Analysis of Urea in Body Fluids

There has been growing focus on wearable fluorescence-based sensors, although traditional fluorescent hydrogels are excited by short wavelengths, hampering the detection of biological samples. Now, researchers have developed a wearable sensing patch that enables the rapid quantitative analysis of urea. More...

Strip-Type Urine Sensor Diagnoses Cancer Quickly and With High Sensitivity

Various blood tests, radiological methods and histological analysis are currently used to diagnose cancer. Annual health checkups can also reveal the presence of cancer, although the disease is mostly detected after it has advanced considerably, resulting in delayed treatment or death. Now, a research team has developed a strip-type urine sensor that can amplify the light signal of metabolites in urine to help diagnose cancer. More...
