Liquid biopsies can detect biomarkers carrying information on the development and progression of cancer. Researchers demonstrated that a 24 plasma-based microRNA signature classifier ( MSC ) was capab ...


Measurement of circulating tumor DNA ( ctDNA ) in blood can be used to detect disease recurrence in patients with a curable form of cancer known as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma ( DLBCL ). In most p ...


The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) is investigating the risk of brain deposits following repeated use of Gadolinium-based contrast agents ( GBCAs ) for magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ). Rece ...


Osteoprotegerin ( OPG ) is promising as a predictor of adverse prognosis in patients with acute coronary syndromes and chronic heart failure. Its prognostic value in acute heart failure ( AHF ) is unk ...


The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force ( Task Force ) has posted a draft recommendation statement and draft evidence documents on screening for breast cancer. The Task Force, an independent, voluntee ...


Cancers arise from multiple acquired mutations, which presumably occur over many years. Early stages in cancer development might be present years before cancers become clinically apparent. Research ...


Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute ( Orlando, Florida; United States ) have identified a set of RNA molecules that are detectable in tissue samples and urine of prostate cancer ...


Intensive follow-up after surgery for colorectal cancer is common practice but is based on limited evidence. Researchers have assessed the effect of scheduled blood measurement of carcinoembryonic ant ...


Biomarkers for the early diagnosis of patients with pancreatic cancer are needed to improve prognosis. A study has described differences in microRNA expression in whole blood between patients with pan ...


Imaging tests are essential for staging of children with cancer. However, computed tomography ( CT ) and radiotracer-based imaging procedures are associated with substantial exposure to ionising radia ...


The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) has approved a new use for Lymphoseek ( Technetium 99m tilmanocept ) injection, a radioactive diagnostic imaging agent used to help doctors determine the exten ...


Researchers have developed a novel technique for detecting ALK rearrangements in non-small cell lung cancers ( NSCLCs ) that is more sensitive and easier to perform than currently available techniques ...


A research has shown that the addition of confocal laser endomicroscopy to high-definition white-light endoscopy enables improved real-time endoscopic diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus dysplasia ( neop ...


Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford have developed a way to scan young cancer patients' bodies for tumors without exposing them to ...


The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) has approved a test that identifies the genotypeof hepatitis C virus ( HCV ) that a patient is carrying. The Abbott RealTime HCV Genotype II, which can differe ...
