Clinical trials may under report side effects of cancer drugs
Reuters
Researchers may not realize how badly new cancer drugs make patients feel because physicians don't always accurately report side effects, suggests a new study. The comparison of side effects reported by patients and their physicians in three separate cancer drug trials found that doctors under-reported by up to 75 percent how many patients had six of the most common chemotherapy side effects.

Growing wave of hospital and health system mega mergers means changing dynamics for pathology and clinical laboratory medicine
Dark Daily
Large and financially stable multi-hospital health systems are racing to form regional mega systems. It's a strategy to get ahead of the Affordable Care Act's mandate to improve quality and increase efficiency through coordinated care across the entire care continuum. This growing national trend means further consolidation of clinical laboratory testing services within the merging organizations. For pathology groups, the new super-systems may encourage the different pathology groups within the system to consolidate into a single practice entity.

How to detect infectious diseases like Ebola faster
The Wall Street Journal
When a disease is spreading fast, a quick diagnosis can mean the difference between life and death for patients — and everyone around them. Yet today's diagnostic tools often can't keep pace with outbreaks. Currently, diagnosing infectious diseases like Ebola and plague, or even more common ones like flu and tuberculosis, frequently involves transporting samples to a specialized laboratory, where tests can take hours to complete and results may take days to arrive.

Mutation detection in human in vitro fertilized embryos using whole-genome sequencing
Medical Xpress
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is used in fertility clinics to detect large chromosomal abnormalities or genetic mutations passed on by parents to their in vitro fertilized embryos. However, it is not possible to comprehensively scan the embryo's genome to detect spontaneous mutations. In a study published online in Genome Research, scientists developed a whole-genome sequencing approach using 5- to 10-cell biopsies from human embryos to detect potential disease-causing mutations.

    Decoy protein stops all tested HIV strains
    U-T San Diego
    In a new approach to stopping HIV, a Scripps Research-led team has created a genetically engineered protein that inactivates virtually all strains of the virus. While it will take years before this approach can be tested in humans, the concept provides a fresh insight on how to protect people against infection from the AIDS-causing virus.

    Run your lab like a business
    Lab Manager
    When looking at best practices for running a lab, things as seemingly diverse as staff development and retention, inventory management, procurement, and efficient use of training spends, need to be looked at together. After all, equipment is only as good as the staff who uses it and your staff is only as good as their training.
