Imaging Method Detects Early Metastasis in Lymph Nodes

2015 25 May

A new, highly sensitive ultrasound-guided technique can noninvasively identify metastatic cells in lymph nodes, providing a rapid tool for detecting cancer’s spread at its earliest stages, which is critical for timely treatment. The technology, developed at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, is reported... Read more

Gold Nanoparticles Advance Early Detection of Heart Attacks

2015 20 Jan

In collaboration with Peking University, NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering professors have been working on a new test strip using gold nanoparticles generated by microplasma that demonstrates immense potential for the early detection of certain heart attacks. The novel method works by sensing a specific marker which is several thousand times higher... Read more

Nanoparticles Perform MRI, Fluorescent Imaging

2014 24 Nov

New nanoparticles developed by MIT chemists can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorescent imaging in living animals. These particles could assist scientists in monitoring a tumour's environment and determining whether drugs have successfully reached their targets. An article appearing in Nature Communications describes... Read more

Google Developing Heart Attack And Cancer Detector

2014 01 Nov

Google is currently developing a wristband that would have the ability to carry out non-invasive blood tests. The company is working on technology that can combine disease-detecting nanoparticles which could enter a patient's blood stream via a swallowed pill, with a wrist-worn sensor. The concept is that the sensor would be able to identify changes... Read more

Spread of Cancer Potentially Halted by ‘Sticky Balls’

2014 08 Jan

Early research suggests that cancerous tumour cells can be destroyed with sticky balls which consequently, may prevent cancer from spreading to other parts of the body.Once a tumour begins to spread around other areas of the body, it has reached its most dangerous and deadly stage and now scientists at the US Cornell University have successfully designed...
