The same bacteria present in primary tumors of patients with colorectal cancer are also present in liver metastases, a new study finds.



Researchers convert natural bacterial immune system into microscopic data recorder

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:58:45 -0500

Through a few clever molecular hacks, researchers at Columbia University Medical Center have converted a natural bacterial immune system into a microscopic data recorder, laying the groundwork for a new class of technologies that use bacterial cells for everything from disease diagnosis to environmental monitoring.



Safe mortuary care may be improved by applying common patient safety protocols

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:55:17 -0500

New research investigating serious incidents occurring in the management of patient remains after their death concludes that safe mortuary care may be improved by applying lessons learned from existing patient safety work.



New approach can track how superbugs travel among and within health care facilities

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:50:21 -0500

Killer bacteria – ones that have out-evolved our best antibiotics -- may not go away anytime soon. But a new approach to tracking their spread could eventually give us a fighting chance to keep their death toll down.



Emerging technologies, automated systems provide promising solutions for rapid bacterial ID and AST profiling

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:44:00 -0500

An SLAS Technology review article by Yiyan Li, Xing Yang and Weian Zhao of University of California, Irvine highlights and synthesizes representative emerging micro- and nanotechnologies, as well as automated systems for bacterial identification (ID) and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST), including both phenotypic and molecular methods and those at the point-of-care setting.



Babies can assess how much someone values a particular goal, study suggests

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:05:14 -0500

Babies as young as 10 months can assess how much someone values a particular goal by observing how hard they are willing to work to achieve it, according to a new study from MIT and Harvard University.



Antimalarial drugs could find another use as cancer treatments, study says

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:50:40 -0500

Antimalarial drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine could find another use as cancer treatments, according to a new clinical study published in ecancermedicalscience.



Researchers find no signs of early-onset OA in radiographs of Dolly's skeleton

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:46:08 -0500

Original concerns that cloning caused early-onset osteoarthritis (OA) in Dolly the sheep are unfounded, say experts at the University of Nottingham and the University of Glasgow.



Study uncovers key mechanism by which tumors develop resistance to radiation therapy

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:32:32 -0500

A Ludwig Cancer Research study has uncovered a key mechanism by which tumors develop resistance to radiation therapy and shown how such resistance might be overcome with drugs that are currently under development.
