Scientists at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) MISIS in Russia have developed a new membrane test strip for quantitative immune chromatography rapid tests to rapidly and accurately detect an acute myocardial infarction by analysing blood for the presence of disease markers.
Immune checkpoint inhibitors have revolutionized the treatment of advanced malignancies. By blocking T-cell inhibition these drugs result in immune targeting of tumor cells and normal tissue. As such, their main toxicity is inducing immune-mediated tissue damage.
A new study published in scientific journal Nature Communications distinguishes the reason for extended pancreatic cancer survival: an inverse correlation between a known oncogene, a gene that promotes the development of cancer, and the expression of an oncosuppressor microRNA.
