AppGenex Diagnostics: detect diseases caused by infectious pathogens

New imaging technique can spot tuberculosis infection in an hour

An imaging technique that can diagnose live tuberculosis (lat. Phthisis) in an hour and help monitor the efficacy of treatments has been developed by the researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine. That’s particularly critical because many TB strains have evolved defenses against standard treatments. Speedy TB diagnostics are sorely needed, as current methods can take up to two months to complete - a stretch during which infected individuals could spread the disease broadly, even if they don’t know they’re infected. A quicker diagnosis could curtail the infection rate.

NanoPin: a rapid blood test detect tuberculosis

NanoPin Technologies provides a diagnostic platform for infectious diseases that pulls target biomarkers directly from blood samples and significantly enhances signal strength for rapid detection and optimal treatment. It is a powerful and versatile rapid response platform that will fight future infections and will be commercialized first on the TB diagnostic market (TB), which by 2024 will exceed 3 billion dollars. Furthermore, unlike current tools, this technology provides quantitative results that not only tell the patient whether they have a disease, but also how severe it is and how it changes over time and during treatment.

A Rapid Test for Diagnosing Tuberculosis in People With HIV

An international team that includes Rutgers (RutUni) scientists has made significant progress in developing a urine diagnostic test that can quickly, easily and inexpensively identify tuberculosis (lat. Phthisis) infection in people also infected with HIV. TB is the leading infectious disease killer in the world and the most common cause of death for people living with HIV, although most TB deaths can be prevented with early diagnosis and treatment. TB is a major concern in the poorer sections of the world. So, in addition to being effective, the test also must be inexpensive, simple to use and interpret and not rely on instruments or even electricity.

BYU research could lead to new method for detecting, managing prostate cancer

New research coauthored by BYU researchers may lead to a more accurate system for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of prostate cancer (lat. Prostate Carcinoma). The new study details a computer model that uses medical images to reproduce the growth patterns of prostate cancer on the anatomy of a patient’s prostate. This type of mathematical modeling and simulation of disease is called predictive medicine, a new trend in medical research that leads to personalized treatment and more accurate forecasting of clinical outcomes. There is a lot of room for improvement in both the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer.

With these nanoparticles, a simple urine test could diagnose bacterial pneumonia

A nanoparticle-based technology that could be used to improve the speed of diagnosis pneumonia (lat. Pneumoniae) and tuberculosis (lat. Phthisis). This type of sensor could also be used to monitor whether antibiotic therapy has successfully treated the infection. The team developed nanoparticles coated with peptides (short proteins) that can be chopped up by certain proteases, such as those expressed by cancer cells. When these particles are injected into the body, they accumulate in tumors, if any are present, and proteases there chop the peptides from the nanoparticles. These peptides are eliminated as waste and can be detected by a simple urine test. The team has been working on this idea that measuring enzyme activity could be a new way to peer inside the body.
