Malarial Levels Measured in Saliva and Blood

The use of saliva in the diagnosis of infectious diseases is an attractive alternative to procedures that involve blood drawing. It promises to reduce risks associated with accidental needle pricks and improve patient compliance particularly in malaria survey and drug efficacy studies. More...

Malarial Cytokine Responses Reduced by Age in Exposed Children

Elevated levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines in the peripheral blood during acute malaria infection contribute to the control of parasitemia, but are also responsible for much of the immunopathology seen during symptomatic disease. More...

Protein Signature Associated with Outcome in Metastatic Melanoma

Clinical results in metastatic melanoma with the antibodies nivolumab and pembrolizumab to anti– programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) have led to clinically and statistically significant improvements in progression-free and overall survival compared to alternative first- and second-line therapies. More...

Prognostic Biomarker Found for Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer (EC) is a major health concern due to its rising incidence. Whilst early stage disease is generally cured by surgery, advanced EC has a poor prognosis with limited treatment options, and altered energy metabolism is a hallmark of malignancy. More...

Accurate Tool Developed to Track New HIV Infections

An effort is underway to develop a more accurate way to gauge the incidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections in large populations, which will improve scientific studies and prevention strategies worldwide. More...

Molecular Automation Is Changing Clinical Laboratories

Most mid-career laboratory medicine professionals find it hard not to recall the days when DNA had to be extracted manually and polyacrylamide gels were mixed by hand without also reflecting on how fast things have changed. More...

Images Evaluated for CSF Electrophoresis of IgG Bands

Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves inflammatory lesions of white matter in the central nervous system (CNS) that spread over time. In MS immune reactions lead to intrathecal synthesis of specific immunoglobulins (IgGs) that can be detected in biological fluid samples both quantitatively and qualitatively by isoelectric focusing of supplementary oligoclonal IgG bands. More...
