Scientists have devised a new strategy to precisely modify human T cells using the genome-editing system known as CRISPR/Cas9.
Federal health regulators on Tuesday approved an inflatable medical balloon that aids weight loss by filling up space in the stomach.
Wild chimpanzees in the forests of Uganda are increasingly eating clay to supplement the minerals in their diet, according to a long-term international study published in the early version of the journal PLOS ONE.
As gene sequencing has gotten faster and cheaper, clinicians and researchers are able to use genomic data to study, diagnose, and develop a course of treatment for a variety of individual cancers. MAGI, an open-source tool lets users compare their data with enormous cancer genetics datasets.
An 8-year-old boy who lost his hands and feet to a serious infection has become the youngest patient to receive a double-hand transplant, surgeons said Tuesday.
Personalized medicine could get a push forward from a new technique that reduces the number of cells needed for epigenomic analysis from millions to just 100.
Torrey Pines Scientific, Inc. announces its new EchoTherm Model CO50 Programmable HPLC Column Chiller/Heater. The unit has a temperature range from 4.0°C to 100.0°C readable and settable to 0.1°C.
More than 20 years of habitat restoration and breeding programs have helped the endangered Karner blue butterfly make a comeback in the pine barrens of upstate New York where it was discovered by Russian author Vladimir Nabokov decades ago.
Researchers Create Smartphone-based Device that Reads Medical Diagnostic Tests Quickly and AccuratelyJuly 28, 2015 11:34 am | by UCLA | News | Comments
A team of researchers from the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has developed a new mobile phone-based device that can read ELISA plates in the field with the same level of accuracy as the large machines normally found in clinical laboratories.
A gene therapy that delivers a protein that suppresses the development of female reproductive organs may improve survival rates in patients with ovarian cancer that has recurred after chemotherapy. Recurrence happens 70 percent of the time and is invariably fatal.
A new technology – called “Sticky-flares” – developed by nanomedicine experts offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.
Smartphone apps are the latest tools to emerge from the intersection of health care and Silicon Valley, where tech companies are also working on new ways of bringing patients and doctors together online, applying massive computing power to analyze DNA and even developing ingestible "smart" pills for detecting cancer.
This three-part article discusses how biologists are adopting a powerful new approach to structural analysis that uses sophisticated computational tools to integrate molecular-scale information from EM with atomic-scale results from XRD and NMR.
Two new research studies presented at the 2015 American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting and Lab Expo, show promise for quicker and less-expensive ways to detect diabetes.
