For the first time ever, researchers are comprehensively sequencing the human immune system, which is billions of times larger than the human genome. In a new study published in Nature from the Human Vaccines Project, scientists have sequenced a key part of this vast and mysterious system — the genes encoding the circulating B cell […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers Professor Graham Lord, from The University of Manchester and colleagues have found that a specific part of the immune system could have the tools that may help in the therapy of some major diseases such as diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and other autoimmune diseases. The results of their findings were published in […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Jan. 23, 2019 — An artificial intelligence (AI) system based on deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) can accurately detect normal chest radiographs, according to a study published online Jan. 22 in Radiology. Mauro Annarumma, from King’s College London, and colleagues developed an AI system based on 470,388 fully anonymized institutional adult chest radiographs acquired […]Continue Reading ...
Determining which patients can benefit from hip preservation surgery (rather than hip replacement surgery) is challenging, but the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recently published a hip preservation surgery appropriateness classification system. A new Arthritis Care & Research analysis looked at what impact the system might have on clinical decisions. The analysis found that the […]Continue Reading ...
In a study of flies, NIH scientists showed how the immune system may be a culprit in the damage caused by aging brain disorders. Credit: Giniger lab, NIH/NINDS In a study of fruit flies, NIH scientists suggested that the body’s immune system may play a critical role in the damage caused by aging brain disorders. […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina and Arizona State University have developed an intelligent system for “tuning” powered prosthetic knees, allowing patients to walk comfortably with the prosthetic device in minutes, rather than the hours necessary if the device is tuned by a trained clinical practitioner. The system is the […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 17 2019 New 10-Color System with Kaluza C Software Streamlines Workflow and QC Reporting for Flow Cytometric Leukemia & Lymphoma Analysis Beckman Coulter launches the ClearLLab 10C System for the clinical flow cytometry lab. The new system includes the first 10-color CE-IVD panels of immunophenotyping reagents for both lymphoid and myeloid lineages. The tubes […]Continue Reading ...
Scrolling through the GoFundMe website reveals seemingly an endless number of people who need help or community support. A common theme: the cost of health care. It didn’t start out this way. Back in 2010, when the crowdfunding website began, it suggested fundraisers for “ideas and dreams,” “wedding donations and honeymoon registry” or “special occasions.” […]Continue Reading ...
Research team from the University of Jena (Germany) clarifies the mechanism of gliotoxin, a mycotoxin from the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus. The researchers present their findings in the current issue of the specialist journal Cell Chemical Biology. It is everywhere – and it is extremely dangerous for people with a weakened immune system. The fungus Aspergillus […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 24 2019 The world’s only hygienic, easy-to-use and accurate digital point-of-care urine test is being launched at Arab Health 2019 by UK company, Clinical Design. The revolutionary Urine Testing System™ has been designed to improve the entire process from receiving the sample and recording results, to analysis in the laboratory. The highly-intuitive system features […]Continue Reading ...
Chaos in bodily regulation can optimize our immune system according to a recent discovery made by researchers at the University of Copenhagen’s Niels Bohr Institute. The discovery may prove to be of great significance for avoiding serious diseases such as cancer and diabetes. Wide gaps exist in our understanding of how the immune system works […]Continue Reading ...
A team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has recently introduced a novel targeted drug delivery system that can improve the pharmacological and therapeutic properties of conventional cancer treatments. The new technology has dramatically enhanced safety and efficiency through the use of the supramolecularly built protein corona shield as a targeting agent through regulating the interfaces […]Continue Reading ...
Patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) have benefited from an experimental stem cell therapy. MS is an autoimmune disease where the central nervous system is affected. It is severely debilitating and means a slow and progressive death for the patients. A new study titled, ‘Effect of Nonmyeloablative Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation vs Continued Disease-Modifying Therapy […]Continue Reading ...
A component has been identified by researchers in Umeå as a novel regulator of the immune system. It acts as a molecular switch to deactivate the innate immune system and has the ability to prevent certain diseases caused by an excessive activation of the immune system. This is shown in a new doctoral thesis at […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 11 2019 SP Scientific announces the launch of LyoS™ 2.0 – a line-of-sight enabled lyophilizer control system able to control platforms from development to production units, making cycle transfer and scale-up that much simpler. Building upon over 50 years of freeze-drying experience, the LyoS 2.0 control system delivers unmatched process control for all stages […]Continue Reading ...
