Cubresa receives US patent for flexible imaging sensors

Cubresa receives US patent for flexible imaging sensors

Instead of a cloak of invisibility hiding a person in television and movies, a new method that describes mounting many imaging sensors underneath a flexible substrate could reveal tumors within humans or animals. [More]
Novel biomarkers may offer solution for detecting autologous blood transfusion in athletes

Novel biomarkers may offer solution for detecting autologous blood transfusion in athletes

Increasing oxygen delivery to muscles can help athletes perform better and give them the edge needed to win elite competitions. One of the best ways to increase oxygen supply is through blood manipulation, undergoing a blood transfusion that provides extra red blood cells and boosts oxygen levels. [More]
New mathematical model can help predict breast cancer growth, occurrence of metastases

New mathematical model can help predict breast cancer growth, occurrence of metastases

Personalized medicine is a healthcare approach in which medical procedures are tailored to the individual patient's genetic, physiological, and biochemical type along with other characteristics. Cancer treatment is one type of care where a personalized approach is most needed and often applied. [More]
New study identifies four subtypes of human insulin producing beta cells involved in diabetes

New study identifies four subtypes of human insulin producing beta cells involved in diabetes

A new study led by nationally prominent stem cell scientist Markus Grompe, M.D., has determined the existence of at least four separate subtypes of human insulin producing beta cells that may be important in the understanding and treatment of diabetes. The findings were published online today in the journal Nature Communications. [More]

HMC signal could be used to detect diseases and to personalize medication

HMC signal could be used to detect diseases and to personalize medication

Common diseases like allergy, diabetes and other immune diseases have increased dramatically in recent decades. This indicates that the environment may have a more important role than genes in explaining this increase. [More]
CD Laboratory at MedUni Vienna explores new therapeutic approaches to enhance peritoneal dialysis

CD Laboratory at MedUni Vienna explores new therapeutic approaches to enhance peritoneal dialysis

One of the main functions of the kidneys is to filter metabolic products out of the blood. If the kidneys are no longer able to do this, the blood has to be artificially purified and drained of excess fluid. [More]
