Researchers at the University of Georgia are developing a new treatment technique that uses nanoparticles to reprogram immune cells so they are able to recognize and attack cancer. The findings were published recently in the early online edition of ACS Nano.
David D. Nolte, a professor in Purdue's Department of Physics, and his collaborators Ran An, a graduate student in physics, and John J. Turek in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences have created a technique called BioDynamic Imaging that measures the activity inside cancer biopsies, or samples of cells.
Innovative point-of-care tests that can assist operators with capturing test results and “reading” for a specific diagnosis are driving revenue growth of the lateral flow test category, according to Kalorama Information. Driven by these enhancements and others, the lateral flow point of care testing market (LF-POC) grew to $3.6 billion worldwide in 2012.
MediSafe Project announced today the addition of three new features to the iOS version of its medication management system. The new features make it easier to input information, enhance the engagement process and better manage medication management for iPhone users.
More and more people dream of being able to live for a long time in familiar surroundings even at an advanced age. However, certain illnesses necessitate longer hospital stays or frequent visits to the doctor – such as when medicines have to be taken regularly and in a controlled environment. This limits mobility and patient happiness.
AMETEK Engineered Medical Components has received a US patent for its design for an electrocardiogram (ECG) cable and electrical assembly that exceeds the low-noise and electromagnetic interference standards established by the ANSI/AAMI EC-53 for ECG cable and lead wires.
