02/12/2022Anomalies in the formation of blood and lymphatic vessels are, thankfully, rare. Those who do have them face a lifetime of complications that can range from the mild to the life-threatening. To date, little is known about the causes, which means the diagnostic and treatment options are very limited. René Hägerling of the BIH Center for Regenerative Therapies has made it his mission to remedy this.
30/11/2022Researchers at LMU and Charité hospital in Berlin have developed a method for classifying difficult-to-diagnose nasal cavity tumors.
25/11/2022In an international collaboration with partners from Cambridge (UK), scientists from the Berlin Institute of Health at the Charité (BIH) have now discovered more than 300 regions in the genome that contribute to this individual chemical fingerprint. They have now published their results in Nature Medicine.
24/11/2022RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences and FutureNeuro are co-leading, with University College Dublin, the Irish element of a new EU project to support the integration of genomics into healthcare and advance new treatments for patients.
31/10/2022Hereditary genetic mutations play an important role in oncogenesis, but they usually remain undetected.
28/10/2022INDICATE, an international collaborative initiative to unravel the role of the Human Leukocyte Antigen type as risk modifier in individuals with a genetic cancer predisposition.
27/10/2022Malignant tumours in the head and neck region are very heterogeneous and therefore difficult to treat. A joint study by MedUni Vienna and the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Applied Metabolomics focused on the development and identification of specific markers to improve risk assessment for patients.
28/09/2022Patients with polyps have a higher risk of evolving cancer in the future. Using Artificial intelligence (AI) during colonoscopy can be useful to detect pre-cancerous polyps, Yuichi Mori, doctor and associate professor from the Clinical Effectiveness Research group at the University of Oslo says.
21/09/2022The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT is contributing its expertise in the field of medical biotechnology and ultrasound to an EC project to work on the next generation of theranostics for brain pathologies using autonomous externally controllable nanonetworks.
20/09/2022The results of the international study involving the Cluster of Excellence PMI also point to a previously unknown process in the development of this chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
16/09/2022In an international study presented in the journal Lancet Microbe, DZIF researchers have now succeeded in identifying patient-specific resistance patterns using a bacterial genome analysis technique.
14/09/2022New data supporting the accuracy of multi-cancer early detection (MCED) blood testing, have major implications for future cancer care provision.
13/09/2022A new paper from University of Helsinki, published in Nature Communications, suggests a method for accurately analysing genomics data in cancer archival biopsies.
08/09/2022In the USA, doctors recommend that couples have genetic screening before trying to conceive. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now shown that a maximal variant of this test detects the risk in 44 percent of couples who are related by blood, and in just 5 percent of other couples.
01/08/2019Antibiotic resistance is modern medicine's greatest challenge. Some bacteria only respond to a handful of antibiotics, prompting hospitals to spend a lot of time finding an effective drug. That’s why it is critical for physicians to rapidly identify antibiotic resistance to avoid ineffective treatments.
