UConn engineers have created a biodegradable pressure sensor that could help doctors monitor chronic lung disease, swelling of the brain, and other medical conditions before dissolving harmlessly in a patient's body. The UConn research is featured in the current online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Study from the University of Illinois and Mayo collaboration has proved a novel gene expression analysis technique that can accurately measure levels of RNA quickly and directly from a cancerous tissue sample while conserving the spatial information across the tissue. The study published in the Nature Communications.
The addition of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy to interval cytoreductive surgery prolonged recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) without increasing toxicity among patients with stage III epithelial ovarian cancer, according to randomized open-label phase 3 study results published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Researchers from the University of Toronto's Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, they revealed that there are some 42 million protein molecules in a simple cell. Analyzing data from almost two dozen large studies of protein abundance in yeast cells, the team could produce for the first-time reliable estimates for the number of molecules for each protein. The study published in the journal Cell Systems.
