Metabolomics Analysis Applied to Investigate MPS

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) represent a group of about 500 rare diseases with an overall estimated incidence of 1/2,500. The diversity of involved metabolisms explains the difficulties in establishing their diagnosis. More...

New 3D App Provides More Accurate Cancer Diagnosis

With further development of light-sheet microscopy based 3D imaging, researchers were able to examine tumor biopsy tissue in more detail than current 2D methods, resulting in improved intratumoral heterogeneity phenotyping and diagnosis of solid tumors. More...

Liquid Biopsy Test Outperforms Prostate Cancer PCA3 Test

Of the nearly two million prostate biopsies performed each year, less than a third find cancer. Most of these men could have avoided a painful and invasive prostate biopsy procedure, with its associated complications and costs. More...

Pre-Op Test Can Detect Some Pancreatic Cancers

A newly developed genetic test was highly sensitive at determining which pancreatic cysts are most likely to be associated with one of the most aggressive types of pancreatic cancer. The successful results are a critical step toward a precision medicine approach to detecting and treating pancreatic cancer. More...

Genetic Test Discovered for Predicting Cancer Recurrence

Treatment failure, due to drug resistance, still remains a major obstacle for more effective anti-cancer therapy and personalized medicine. In estrogen-receptor-positive (ER (+)) breast cancer, approximately 40% to 50% of patients eventually develop tamoxifen-resistance. More...

HPV Testing Detects More Precancerous Lesions

Human papillomavirus (HPV) testing detects a higher number of precancerous cervical lesions than cytology-based Papanicolaou (Pap) smears in a female population including a proportion offered HPV vaccination according to a new study. More...

Immunocompromised Patients at Risk for Blastomycosis

Most invasive fungal infections in immunocompromised patients are caused by Zygomycetes, Aspergillus, and Candida, but literature about Blastomyces infection in immunocompromised patients has been sparse. More...
