Helicobacter Pylori Immunoassays Evaluated for Efficacy

Helicobacter pylori are curved gram negative bacilli and have been etiologically associated with several pathogenic conditions of the stomach ranging from gastritis to gastric cancer. Prevalence of H. pylori infection varies based on several factors globally and in developing countries more than 80% of the population is infected with H. pylori. More...

Biological Markers in Tears May Diagnose PD

Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder that kills brain cells that produce dopamine, which is a chemical messenger important for the control of movement. The main symptoms of Parkinson's include slowness of movement, tremors, rigidity, and difficulty maintaining balance and coordination. More...

Immunoassay Monitors Parasite Persistence in Chagas Disease

The Trypanosoma cruzi parasite is the causative agent of Chagas disease, and infects about six million individuals in more than 20 countries. Monitoring parasite persistence in infected individuals is of utmost importance to develop and evaluate treatments to control the disease. More...

Novel Saliva-Based PCR Assay Detects HIV Antibodies Earlier

An oral fluid-based test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) shows promise as a population-based screening tool. According to its developers, the test is easier to collect than blood but yields results that are just as reliable. More...

Image: The frequency and activity of conventional T cells serves as an early childhood immune signature that predicts the development of asthma later on. The iNKT cells are shown in green, lung vasculature in red and cell nuclei in blue (Photo courtesy of Dr. Catherine Crosby, La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology).

Immune Signature Predicts Asthma Susceptibility

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease driven by the interplay of genetics, environmental factors and a diverse cast of immune cells. A subset of T cells has been identified whose frequency serves as early childhood immune signature that predicts the risk of developing asthma later on. More...

Immune System Dysfunction May Occur Early in Alzheimer’s Disease

Inflammatory markers have been shown to predict neurocognitive outcomes in aging adults; however, the degree to which peripheral markers mirror the central nervous system remains unknown. More...
