The scientists from Fraunhofer Institutes have developed a process to analyze and select cells and then examine their protein production. In pharmaceutical research, this will make it possible to develop active ingredients much faster than before. This project from the pre-competitive research will be presented at Analytica trade fair in Munich.

Increasing levels of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-B*27 are linked to more severe sonographic enthesitis in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), according to a study published in Arthritis & Rheumatology.
Patients and their caregivers desire information about upcoming imaging tests, but many are not getting it, according to a study published online in the journal Radiology. The researchers found that among patients undergoing an imaging test, only 78% said they had basic information about the procedure before the test itself, report researchers.
When the body is fighting infection, the immune and neuron system kicks into high gear. A new study, published in Nature Medicine, shows just how the interaction between the nervous system and the immune systems occurs in deadly lung infections — a tantalizing clue into a complex interplay between two systems traditionally viewed as disconnected.
According to a study published in the journal The Lancet Psychiatry , Patients with longer duration of untreated major depressive disorder (MDD) showed greater microglial activation – evidenced by translocator protein total distribution volume – compared to those with shorter periods of untreated MDD.
According to this study, researchers detected that a “heteroresistance “ to colistin which is a last-resort antibiotic and highly resistant to Klebsiella pneumoniae, a bacterium that causes blood, soft tissue and urinary tract infections. The study has published in mBio.
A study examines that patients are more likely to be misdiagnosed or experience treatment delays when emergency rooms are so crowded that they receive care in a hallway. Privacy and confidentiality are vital in emergency care, particularly for patients who may be reluctant to undress or divulge sensitive personal information in front of companions in an exam room. The study has published in the journal Emergency Medicine.
According to a study, researchers determine that children who recover from kidney disease face a four-fold increased risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in adulthood. The increased risk was seen among adults who had normal kidney function and blood pressure at the time of military conscription and regardless of the type of childhood kidney problems.
In a study, researchers have successfully transplanted 10 hepatitis C-infected kidneys into patients without hepatitis C and prevented the patients from becoming infected by hepatitis C. The success of these transplants could mean more organs being available for the nearly 100,000 people in the U.S. currently waiting for a kidney transplant. The study has published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
Exposing preschoolers to an hour of bright light before bedtime almost completely shuts down their production of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin and keeps it suppressed for at least 50 minutes after lights out, according to a study published in the journal Physiological Reports.
A new wearable microfluidic sweat analytics system measures sweat and sweat biomarkers. It is a soft, flexible device that measures the bodies’ response to exercise. Northwestern University professor John A. Rogers is collaborating with a broad collection of partners to bring his microfluidic device into widespread distribution.
