• Protein-Based Biomarker Could Enable Precision Medicine For Depression

    Jan 25 | Diagnostics World News | It has proven exceedingly difficult to identify reliable and reproducible genetic markers for depression, but it now appears possible to efficiently leverage a biochemical hallmark to create a blood test. The basis of the test is the four-decade-old discovery that depression is tied to low levels of the intracellular molecule adenylyl cyclase, made in response to neurotransmitters such as serotonin and epinephrine.

  • Catching Cancer Cells In The Act Of Metastasizing

    Jan 19 | Diagnostics World | Researchers at the University of Michigan (U-M) have made the connection between cellular motility—with a known connection to tumor metastasis—and the shape-shifting behavior of cancer cells to become more “missile-like” and thus better able to make the voyage from one site in the body to another. The newly acquired characteristic arises when epithelial cells morph into mesenchymal cells, but the transition can’t be seen if the cells are all held hostage on a glass microscope slide. More

  • Bioimpedance Test For Breast Cancer Could Hit The Market In 2023

    Jan 13 | Diagnostics World News | Mammography has a lot of well-recognized shortcomings among women with dense breasts as well as those diagnosed with breast cancer who need their response to therapy closely monitored. A cheaper, noninvasive, and easy-to-perform test is now under development that could solve for its clinical limitations and is on track to hit the market as early as 2023. More

  • ‘Designer Biosensors’ Proposed For Measuring Patient Response To Toxic Drugs

    Jan 07 | Diagnostics World News | Researchers in Australia have succeeded in building a chemically induced dimerization (CID) system that can detect the concentration of the antimetabolite drug methotrexate in serum. Coupled with a functionally related biosensor of rapamycin, commonly used to prevent organ transplant rejection, they also looked at lab prototypes of a multiplexed bioelectronic system for repeated measurements of multiple analytes.

  • Monitoring Pregnancy Progress With RNA Profiling

    Jan 05 | Diagnostics World | A global collaborative of researchers has used a novel platform based on cell-free RNA (cfRNA) to monitor patterns of gene expression as pregnancy progresses—including, surprisingly, genes that appear to originate with the developing fetus. They recently demonstrated the platform’s potential as a pregnancy screening tool, using preeclampsia as a test case, but it might logically also be brought to bear in the future treatment and prevention of any number of pregnancy-related complications.
