[07/04/2009] Researchers have identified a new biological indicator that may help identify which brain-cancer patients have the most aggressive forms of the disease. Brain Cancer: New Possible Marker for Severity - Read more

Ovaries: Screening Not Catching Early Cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/04/2009] Screening regimens that combine ultrasound and a blood test for ovarian cancer fail to detect the disease early enough to make important progress, a new study reports. The combo screening also led to unnecessary surgery. Ovaries: Screening Not Catching Early Cancer - Read more

Breast Cancer: New Test May Predict Metastasis

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[31/03/2009] Researchers have identified a new marker for breast cancer metastasis. Density of TMEM (Tumour Microenvironment of Metastasis) was associated with the development of distant organ metastasis via the bloodstream. Breast Cancer: New Test May Predict Metastasis - Read more

Diagnosis: Biomarker Test to Foresee Alzheimer’s

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[25/03/2009] A test capable of confirming or ruling out Alzheimer’s disease has been validated and standardised by U.S. researchers. The test also predicted whether a mild cognitive impairment would convert to Alzheimer’s disease later on. Diagnosis: Biomarker Test to Foresee Alzheimer’s - Read more

Cancer: Lab-on-a-Chip Leads to Better Therapies

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[23/03/2009] Engineers have invented a method that could be used to help figure out how cancer cells break free from neighboring tissue - an "escape" that can spread the disease to other parts of the body. Cancer: Lab-on-a-Chip Leads to Better Therapies - Read more

Pregnancy: Increasing Use Of CT

[17/03/2009] Researchers have found that over a ten-year period radiologic exams on pregnant women have more than doubled, according to a new study. Pregnancy: Increasing Use Of CT - Read more

Sepsis: On The Killer’s Trail

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/03/2009] Sepsis, better known as blood poisoning, kills almost as many people as heart attacks do each year. This is due to the fact that it is often diagnosed too late and, moreover, wrongly treated. New tests are to change that. Sepsis: On The Killer’s Trail - Read more

Metastasis: How Fat Impacts Cancer Spread

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[26/02/2009] Researchers have precisely measured the impact of a high-fat diet on the spread of cancer, finding that excessive dietary fat caused a 300 percent increase in metastasising tumour cells in laboratory animals. Metastasis: How Fat Impacts Cancer Spread - Read more
