Raman Spectroscopy Test Could Improve Lyme Disease Diagnostics

Lyme disease is challenging to diagnose and can only be treated in the early stages of infection. Now, scientists are focusing on improving Lyme disease treatment outcomes by developing a test that’s both more accurate and more efficient than the current test for the infection. More...

Rapid Diagnostic Test Uses Light to Detect Malaria without Blood Samples

Current rapid malaria tests involve applying a blood sample to a testing strip that can detect the presence of malaria-causing plasmodium parasites in red blood cells. Now, scientists have developed a hand-held screening device that can scan a patient’s arm or finger to detect the presence of malaria, eliminating the need to draw blood. More...

First Blood Panel to Detect Deadly Placenta Accreta Spectrum

Placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) is a major life-threatening pregnancy complication for both the mother and the baby. Now, a new study aims to create a targeted test for predicting PAS during pregnancy, thus better preparing patients and practitioners for the delivery day. More...

Amniotic Fluid Cells RNA-Sequencing Demonstrates Diagnostic Potential in Deciphering Rare Diseases

Researchers have discovered that applying amniotic fluid cells obtained during 16-24 weeks of pregnancy as a novel sample type for RNA-sequencing in prenatal diagnosis of rare diseases could help more families with tailored clinical management. It is the first proof-of-concept study to demonstrate the potential clinical utility of amniotic fluid cells RNA-sequencing. More...

Single Immune System Molecule on Nasal Swabs Detects Stealthy Viruses Not Identified in Standard Tests

Researchers have found that testing for the presence of a single immune system molecule on nasal swabs can help detect stealthy viruses not identified in standard tests. More...

CRISPR Protein Could Yield New Tests for Many Viruses

In a first for the genetic toolset known as CRISPR, a recently discovered protein has been found to act as a kind of multipurpose self-destruct system for bacteria, capable of degrading single-stranded RNA, single-stranded DNA and double-stranded DNA. With its abilities to target so many types of genetic material, the discovery holds potential for the development of new inexpensive and highly sensitive at-home diagnostic tests for a wide range of infectious diseases.

Nanopore Sequencing Detect Pathogens in Knee Periprosthetic Joint Infection

The number of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is currently increasing substantially, and it is expected to increase more than two times in the next decade worldwide. With the increasing number of TKA, the number of prosthetic joint infections (PJIs) is also increasing, and PJI is currently regarded as the most common etiology for revision TKA. More...
