Laser-based blood glucose monitor checks for diabetes

Laser-based blood glucose monitor checks for diabetes
A group of researchers, led by Prof. Yuji Matsuura of Tohoku University's Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, has developed a method of measuring blood glucose using far infrared light, which is both harmless and non-invasive. Diabetes patients traditionally monitor their daily blood glucose levels by using a conventional meter which requires blood sampling from the finger tips.

Are you taking the real deal?

Are you taking the real deal?
A startup is building a smartphone-connected gadget that aims to tell you if the pill you’re about to take is really what you think it is by shining light on it. A scan of a known Viagra pill with Stratio’s LinkSquare spectrometer shows that it matches a reference scan. San Jose-based Stratio’s device, called LinkSquare, is a tiny spectrometer, a device that measures the intensity of wavelengths of light.

Nuclear radiation may be used to combat Zika virus

Nuclear radiation may be used to combat Zika virus
The United Nations' top nuclear watchdog group proposed the use of nuclear radiation treatment as a strategy to eliminate or reduce the mosquito population carrying the Zika virus. Yukiya Amano, Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, announced this plan on last Sunday, before leaving for an official visit to Central America where the virus has been rapidly spreading.

Blood test can distinguish bacterial from viral infections

Blood test can distinguish bacterial from viral infections
A new test could help doctors tell whether a patient's flu-like symptoms of respiratory infection are viral or bacterial in origin, helping to avoid the overprescription of antibiotics in situations where they're not needed.

App helps identify women at risk of premature birth

An app called QUiPP could help doctors to better identify women at risk of giving birth prematurely. The app, developed at King’s College London, was tested in two studies of high-risk women being monitored at antenatal clinics. Worldwide 15m babies are born preterm (before 37 weeks) each year and over a million of these die of prematurity-related complications.

Microscope looks at live muscle units in action

The basic process of force-generation in muscle has been known for decades, but until now no one has ever seen it work at a microscopic level in a living human. The new microscope could provide unique insights into treating muscular degenerative diseases.

EFS function helps to gain insights into DMD research

EFS function helps to gain insights into DMD research
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive and fatal muscle degenerating disease caused by a dystrophin deficiency. Effective suppression of the primary pathology observed in DMD is critical for treatment. Patient-derived human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) are a promising tool for drug discovery.

Research programme explores nanomedicine characterisation

CEA-Leti has announced the launch of the European Nano-Characterisation Laboratory (EU-NCL), funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Its main objective is to reach a level of international excellence in nanomedicine characterisation for medical indications of cancer, diabetes, inflammatory diseases or infections, and make this accessible to all organisations developing candidate nanomedicines prior to their submission to regulatory agencies.
