Invention makes biopsies less invasive and more informative

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a novel technology that could sensitively and accurately detect and classify cancer cells, as well as determine the disease aggressiveness from the least invasive biopsies. With this new technology called STAMP (Sequence-Topology Assembly for Multiplexed Profiling), comprehensive Continue Reading

Non-invasive electrical stimulation alters blood flow in brain tumors

In a first-of-its kind study, neurologists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) tested the use of non-invasive electrical stimulation as a novel therapeutic approach to brain tumors. In an experiment published in Science Advances, the scientists—led by Emiliano Santarnecchi, Ph.D., principal investigator at the Berenson-Allen Center For Non-Invasive Brain Continue Reading

Non-invasive ADHD treatment for adults found to be as effective as other therapies: Cognitive-behavior therapy is particularly efficient

A study published in the journal The Lancet Psychiatry has revealed that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) group training is just as effective as neurofeedback training in treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, the experts have observed that while both methods worked to decrease disease symptoms, CBT appears to be a more efficient treatment option. ADHD is Continue Reading

Most High-Grade Non-Invasive Bladder Cancer Patients Not Getting Right Care

The majority of patients with high-grade non-invasive bladder cancer are not getting the care recommended by official guidelines from the American Urology Association and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network; essential treatment to minimize the chances of a recurrence or cancer progression, researchers from UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center revealed in Continue Reading
