A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on 20th July 2017 suggests that a cocktail of drugs, if provided at the beginning of the HIV therapy, can save over 10,000 lives per year.
CRISPR technology burst onto the scene in 2012,1 and has been a staple of scientific research ever since. CRISPR offers the promise of personalized medicine on a level previously unattainable, and clinical trials are already underway using the technology in China.
A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on 24th July 2017, suggests that spending money on household activities such as cleaning and cooking to buy free time, is associated with increased life satisfaction.
The highest priority research agendas needed to improve the testing and treatment of children and adolescents with HIV were presented at the 9th International Aids Society (IAS) Conference on HIV Science in Paris this weekend.
It is a very simple, straightforward molecular diagnostic test. Like most of the molecular diagnostic tests that are currently on the market, it is a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) based assay.
A survey conducted by the National Charity Partnership (NCP), U.K suggests that most of the women who participated are not sure on the amount of food they should intake while they are pregnant.

Cataract is a clouding of the lens within the eye and affects tens of millions of people. At present, there is no cure for cataract, and consequently the only available method to treat cataract is by surgical removal.
Choroideremia (CHM) is a rare genetic eye disease that affects the retina, which is the area at the back of the eye that processes all we see into signals that are sent to the brain via the optic nerve.
Scientists have been working hard to bring about a time in the future when we can grow “an eye in a dish” and use it for transplantation to restore the vision of someone who is blind, and they are not as far off as you might think.

This test, which we have branded SelectMDx for Prostate Cancer, came with the acquisition of a company in the Netherlands called NovioGendix. They developed a prototype assay, so they did most of the heavy lifting in terms of discovering the two specific biomarkers that are currently in the product. These biomarkers are tuned towards the detection of what I call clinically significant prostate cancer.
According to Accenture’s survey of 1,000 consumers in England one-in-eight (13 per cent) have had their personal medical information stolen from technology systems. More than half (68 per cent) of English consumers said they want to have at least some involvement in keeping their healthcare data secured, whereas only a quarter (28 per cent) said that they have such involvement today.
The first thing is, to always remember that we're dealing with a living drug, cells, which are very sensitive to environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity etc. All of those things can impact on the viability of the drug and its effectiveness.
