Liquid Biopsies Offer a Viable Alternative to Tissue Biopsies
Liquid biopsies are a set of minimally invasive diagnostic methods that analyze tumor-derived materials that can be found circulating in biological fluids, to provide information for the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of cancer. While tissue biopsies and imaging techniques remain the current standards of care in the diagnosis of solid tumors, they have risks and limitations and limitations, some of which can be overcome by the use of liquid biopsy in clinical oncology, as an alternative or complementary technique to the current standards of care.  Discuss
Experimental Therapeutic Treatment for Deadly Tick-Borne Virus
Findings of the treatment of Bourbon disease in mice were oublished on June 13 in PLOS Pathogens. Only a few cases of the newly discovered Bourbon virus have been reported, and two of them ended in death, partly because no specific treatments are available for the tick-borne illness. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified an experimental antiviral drug, often used to treat the flu, that cures mice infected with the potentially lethal virus.  Discuss
Global Collaboration Launched for Large-Scale DNA Study Exploring Connection Between Genetics and Disease
A new partnership was announced between Intermountain Healthcare and deCODE Genetics to collaborate on the largest DNA mapping effort undertaken in the US from a single population. The initiative, called the HerediGene: Population Study, will analyze the complete DNA of 500,000 participants.  Discuss
Technology Helps the World Tackle Climate Change - Insights from The Science Advisory Board
On October 8th, 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a body of the United Nations tasked with assessing the science related to climate change, released a special report titled “Global Warming of 1.5°C.” Many nations across the world have pledged to do their part in reducing carbon emissions from industrialization and protecting natural resources. But how do they plan to reach these targets? Turns out technology, has a major role in the global effort to limit warming and reduce the impacts of climate change.  Discuss
