  • Oxford Nanopore’s Metagenomics Workflow Characterizes DNA, RNA Viruses

    Jun 22 | Diagnostics World News | A team of researchers from Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and Oxford Nanopore have shared a novel protocol for the rapid metagenomic characterization of DNA and RNA viruses. The workflow identified pathogens in a matter of hours. More
  • Navigating The Emergency Use Authorization Process for Diagnostics

    Jun 21 | Diagnostics World News | The pandemic has thrown a spotlight on the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) process of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) whereby the agency can quickly give companies temporary permission to market unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved ones. The FDA’s EUA power has been in place a long time, and many such authorizations—including diagnostics specific to the Ebola and Zika viruses—remain open many years after declaration of the public health emergency that invoked it, according to B. Melina Cimler, Ph.D., CEO and founder of PandiaDx, a consultancy specializing in regulatory matters surrounding in vitro diagnostics. More
  • 100K Synthetic Brain Images Now Available to Aid Diagnostics, Modeling Disease Progression

    Jun 16 | Diagnostics World News | Jorge Cardoso, a researcher at King’s College London and CTO at the London AI Centre, and NVIDIA have released 100,000 synthetic brain MRI images freely available to healthcare researchers. They believe the dataset will accelerate diagnosis and understanding of dementia, aging, or any sort of brain disease. More
  • ‘Federated Analysis’ Helps Fill Genetic Risk Knowledge Gap On BRCA Genes

    Jun 14 | Diagnostics World News | A significantly heightened risk of breast cancer has two well-known culprits—mutations to the tumor suppressor genes BRCA1 and BRCA2—but more than 40% of the time they are black-box “variants of uncertain significance.” Using a new data-sharing innovation known as federated analysis, however, an international team of researchers has categorized 16 of these uncertain variants as benign or likely benign so their carriers may be able to have their clinical risk of disease managed properly and avoid the risk of invasive and irrevocable surgeries.
