Prostate Cancer Diagnosed Better Using Artificial Intelligence

 Prostate cancer is a frequently occurring type of cancer, but not always aggressive: more men die with prostate cancer than from prostate cancer. However, its treatment has many consequences for the quality of life of patients, so determining aggressiveness is an important step in choosing a treatment. More...

Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Chagas Disease Field Evaluated

 Chagas disease, caused by infection with the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, is the neglected tropical disease exerting a highest burden in the Western hemisphere. It is estimated that there are around seven million people affected worldwide, the majority of them living in Latin America where the insect vectors that transmit the infection are endemic. More...

Fast and Inexpensive Device Captures and Identifies Viruses

 Currently, virologists estimate that 1.67 million unknown viruses are in animals, a number of which can be transmitted to humans. Known viruses, such as H5N1, Zika and Ebola have caused widespread illness and death. Early detection could halt virus spread by enabling rapid deployment of countermeasures. More...

Paper-Based Test Could Diagnose Lyme Disease at Early Stages

 Caused by the tick-borne spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, Lyme disease (LD) is the most common vector-borne infectious disease in North America and Europe and timely diagnosis and treatment are effective in preventing disease progression. More...
