Study finds massive cost savings in high-tech pathogen-identification method
Infection Control Today
Researchers at UNC Health Care have found that using a new method for identifying bacteria and fungi in patient specimens led to a 92 percent cost reduction in the reagents needed to run clinical microbiology tests. During the yearlong study, the new technology — called MALDI-TOF MS — was also found to take much less time. In most cases, lab technologists identified a pathogen in about an hour; test results from conventional molecular methods take at least a day and often longer

    Protein imaging with X-ray vision
    Lab Manager
    High resolution X-ray crystallography is an imaging technique in which X-ray beams are shot through purified, crystallized proteins. The beam scatters in different directions, allowing scientists to construct a detailed, 3-D model of the crystallized protein's molecular structure. Measuring the intensities and angles of the diffracted beams reveals the position of each atom in the protein.

    Blood test may spot pancreatic cancer earlier
    HealthDay via U.S. News & World Report
    Researchers report that a new blood test could help doctors find pancreatic cancer at an earlier stage, potentially improving a patient's chances of survival. A set of four "markers" — or signs — in the blood identified cases of pancreatic cancer nine out of 10 times, sorting malignancies from other diseases like chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic cysts.

    How DNA is 'edited' to correct genetic diseases
    Science Daily
    A major step forward in our understanding of how enzymes "edit" genes has been made by an international team of researchers, paving the way for correcting genetic diseases in patients. Researchers have observed the process by which a class of enzymes called CRISPR — pronounced "crisper" — bind and alter the structure of DNA. The results provide a vital piece of the puzzle if these genome editing tools are ultimately going to be used to correct genetic diseases in humans.

    Can young blood rejuvenate old bodies?
    By Denise A. Valenti
    The transfusion of blood or blood components is not new. In fact, the first successful blood transfusion was performed by physician Richard Lower in 1665 in England. Blood transfusions have long been recognized for saving lives, but recently several studies indicate that blood may also be the key to regaining youth. Researchers report that blood obtained from healthy young adults has the potential to rejuvenate adults suffering from age-related degenerative processes, including cognitive decline.
