One-Step CRISPR-Based Assay Could Streamline COVID-19 Testing

An advanced CRISPR-based diagnostic test for COVID-19 produces results in 30 to 60 minutes, with accuracy similar to the standard CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) RT- qPCR test now in routine use. More...

Genomic Copy Number Predicts Esophageal Cancer Years Before Transformation

Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the lining of the esophagus changes, becoming more like the lining of the small intestine rather than the esophagus. This occurs in the area where the esophagus is joined to the stomach. More...

Circulating Tumor DNA Analysis Directs Therapy in Breast Cancer

Multiple tumor mutations are potentially targetable for advanced breast cancer treatment. Some of these mutations are common, such as activating PIK3CA mutations that are targetable with PI3K inhibitors. More...

Click Chip’ Detects Early-Stage Liver Cancer Biomarkers in Extracellular Vesicles

 Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. The poor prognosis of HCC can be attributed to the fact that diagnosis is often made at a late stage in disease development. More...

Novel Rapid Lateral Flow Assay Measures Ovarian Cancer Biomarker CA125

A radically modified lateral flow immunoassay was able to detect the ovarian cancer biomarker glycosylated CA125 in serum samples and rapidly differentiate epithelial ovarian cancer from benign endometriosis and healthy controls. More...
