Prototypes of Real-Life Star Trek Tricorders to Be Presented at the 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting

Since 2012, research teams in the Qualcomm Tricorder Xprize competition have vied to create a mobile diagnostic device modeled after the fictional medical tricorder from Star Trek. For the first time, competition finalist Chung-Kang Peng, PhD, will present data on his team’s tricorder prototype in a special session at the 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in San Diego.

Researchers Are First to See DNA 'Blink'

Backman-Chromosomeimage.jpg

Northwestern University biomedical engineers have developed imaging technology that is the first to see DNA “blink,” or fluoresce. The tool enables researchers to study individual biomolecules (DNA, chromatin, proteins) as well as important global patterns of gene expression, which could yield insights into cancer. Vadim Backman will discuss the technology and its applications -- including the new concept of macrogenomics, a technology aiming to regulate the global patterns of gene expression without gene editing -- at the 2017 AAAS annual meeting.

Yeast Found in Babies’ Guts Increases Risk of Asthma

University of British Columbia microbiologists have found a yeast in the gut of new babies in Ecuador that appears to be a strong predictor that they will develop asthma in childhood. The new research furthers our understanding of the role microscopic organisms play in our overall health.

Two From UW-Madison Contribute to Human Gene Editing Report

AltaCharo.jpg

The National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Medicine issued a report Tuesday focused on human genome editing. It lays out principles and recommendations for governments grappling with how to handle rapid advances in human genome-editing technology as it applies to human health and disease. Two University of Wisconsin–Madison experts served on the 22-member international committee that compiled the report.

Drug Used to Combat Pain Medication Side Effects May Help with Gastrointestinal Recovery and Shorten Length of Hospital Stay Following Testicular Cancer Surgery

JangHeadshot2015unknownfotog.jpg

A drug given to reduce the side effects of strong post-surgery pain medications resulting in a reduced length of hospital stay for patients who have undergone major gastrointestinal or bladder cancer procedures is found to have similar benefit for some patients undergoing surgery for testicular cancer. An investigator at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey explored the impact of alvimopan in those patients who underwent RPLND.

Endocrine Society Honors Early Investigators Award Winners

The Endocrine Society is pleased to announce the recipients of the Early Investigators Awards. The Early Investigators Awards were established to recognize the achievements of early career investigators in endocrine research. Winners are honored at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting, the world’s premier event for presenting and obtaining the latest information in endocrine science and medicine.

Bacteria in the Cervix May Be Key to Understanding Premature Birth

Depending on the specific type, bacteria in a woman’s vagina and cervix may increase the risk of premature birth or protect against it, according to new research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Results of the study provide groundbreaking information that the authors suggest could help physicians learn how to prevent preterm birth, either by eliminating the “bad” bacteria, or increasing the “protective” bacteria.

Critically Ill Children Don't Benefit From Tightest Control of Blood Sugar

NadkarniVinayRGB-12.jpg

Critically ill infants and children do not gain extra benefit from control of their blood sugar level to lower levels, compared to higher levels within the usual care range, say researchers who led a national clinical trial. While both levels of blood sugar control were relatively safe, control to lower levels increased the risk of a very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) without offering a significant advantage.

UVA Slashes Opioid Use While Improving Pain Scores, Study Finds

A study of more than 100,000 surgical cases at University of Virginia Health System found patients’ pain scores improved even as doctors gave fewer opioids. As health officials across the U.S. look for ways to combat a opioid addiction crisis, UVA researchers believe their findings highlight one way to address the problem.
