Scientists Develop Cheap, Highly Sensitive and Accurate Test for Biomarkers

Scientists at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University and Boston Childrens Hospital have developed a cheap, sensitive, and highly accurate way of detecting protein biomarkers. The technology may very well revolutionize diagnostics, disease monitoring, and help stop the spread of infectious pathogens. The nanoswitch-linked immunosorbent assay (NLISA) has the potential to be as simple to

Chronic fatigue syndrome: Biomarkers linked to severity identified

Stanford investigators used high-throughput analysis to link inflammation to chronic fatigue syndrome, a difficult-to-diagnose disease with no known cure.Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have linked chronic fatigue syndrome to variations in 17 immune-system signaling proteins, or cytokines, whose concentrations in the blood correlate with the disease’s severity.The findings provide evidence that inflammation
