Shedding Light Deeper Into the Human Brain

Yakovlev_870x379.jpg

Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been developing a more efficient way of propagating light through an opaque medium. Propagation of light refers to the way that light travels from one point to another, in this case, through a medium, such as human tissue.

Glowing Tumor Technology Helps Surgeons Remove Hidden Cancer Cells

GlowingTumor.jpg

Surgeons were able to identify and remove a greater number of cancerous nodules from lung cancer patients when combining intraoperative molecular imaging (IMI) – through the use of a contrast agent that makes tumor cells glow during surgery – with preoperative positron emission tomography (PET) scans. The study from the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania (ACC) is the first to show how effective the combination of IMI with the tumor-glowing agent can be when combined with traditional PET imaging.

Ultra-Sensitive Point of Care Test for a Brain Biomarker

Dx-Sys Inc. (Booth # 1356) has developed an ultra-sensitive, Lateral Flow Point of Care diagnostic test for Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP), a potential biomarker for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The test is a one-step quantitative immunochromatographic assay which can be performed in 60 minutes using a Time Resolved Fluorescence Strip Reader with a sensitivity of < 1 pg/mL of GFAP in human serum. The POCT can also be performed on a Qiagen’s standard Fluorescence strip reader for Europium chelates with a sensitivity of 10 pg/mL for GFAP.
