Diabetes biomarkers for early diagnostics

Diabetes biomarkers for early diagnostics
Early diagnosis of diabetes and effective monitoring of its progression could help prevent the development of chronic kidney disease. Towards this goal, European scientists developed a simple urine test. Diabetes constitutes a major risk factor for irreversible kidney malfunction. Currently, there is no therapy for diabetic nephropathy, just treatment to delay disease progression.

Electrode helmet can diagnose brain injury

Electrode helmet can diagnose brain injury
In Europe alone, there are over a million people suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). European researchers developed a novel portable technology to significantly improve disease diagnosis and prognosis. TBI or intracranial injury occurs when external forces injure the brain and the severity could be mild, moderate or severe. It is recognised as a major public health concern, especially for teenagers and young adults, as it can significantly disrupt education, working ability, and quality-of-life in general.

Yeast-based tool provides worldwide pathogen detection

Yeast-based tool provides worldwide pathogen detection
Columbia University researchers have developed a tool that is likely to revolutionise the way we detect and treat pathogens in everything from human health to agriculture to water. Using only common household baker’s yeast, they’ve created an extremely low-cost, low-maintenance, on-site dipstick test they hope will aid in the surveillance and early detection of fungal pathogens responsible for major human disease, agricultural damage and food spoilage worldwide.

Handheld scanner gives instant heart disease diagnosis

Handheld scanner gives instant heart disease diagnosis
  European scientists have developed a handheld scanner that can read your heart's vital signs like a supermarket barcode reader can scan items at the checkout, allowing a GP to diagnose even preclinical patients for the early onset of a disease.

Barometric sensor detects presence of disease biomarkers

Barometric sensor detects presence of disease biomarkers
Researchers from Jinan University in Guangzhou, China and Washington State University have developed a novel type of sensor that works by measuring pressure changes induced by the production of oxygen (O2). The technology may miniaturise and make readily available testing of a wide variety of biomarkers. The team of researchers has already demonstrated how the technology can be used to detect thrombin, a blood clotting enzyme, and carcinoembryonic antigen, a protein related to a number of cancers.

Rapid test improves malaria diagnosis

Rapid test improves malaria diagnosis
Diagnosing malaria has been a very time-consuming and error-prone process up to now. Together with his Dutch colleague Jan van den Boogaart, Professor Oliver Hayden from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed an automated rapid blood test that provides an accurate diagnosis in almost 100% of cases. The researchers were presented with the European Inventor Award, which honors outstanding inventors from Europe and the rest of the world, for the development of the new method.

Heart rate click board adds biometrics to designs

The Heart Rate 4 click board from MikroElektronika is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. It measures the oxygen saturation in a person’s blood through pulse oximetry. The click board incorporates the Maxim MAX30101 pulse oximeter and heart-rate sensor.

AliveCor and Microlife offer high rate of atrial fibrillation detection

AliveCor and Microlife offer high rate of atrial fibrillation detection
A study from The University of Hong Kong in a primary care setting showed that the AliveCor Heart Monitor and Microlife WatchBP Office AFIB demonstrated less than expected sensitivity. 2052 patients (mean age = 68 years old) with hypertension and/or diabetes were screened for atrial fibrillation using these two automated devices and their algorithms.

Machine learning can help diagnose genetic disorders

Machine learning can help diagnose genetic disorders
In a new study published in Scientific Reports, the researchers used machine learning to analyse hundreds of voice recordings and accurately identify individuals with a genetic condition known as fragile X premutation, which increases the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders, infertility or having a child with fragile X syndrome.

Personalised virtual heart for non-invasive heart diagnostics

Personalised virtual heart for non-invasive heart diagnostics
  EPFL mathematician Alfio Quarteroni and his team are building a virtual heart model based on personalised medical images that may one day help cardiologists and cardiac surgeons non-invasively diagnose pathological heart conditions. The team recently modelled and simulated the behaviour of a patient’s aortic valve.
