Todos Medical provides affordable and reliable early cancer screening

Todos Medical aims to develop and bring to market its revolutionary blood tests for detecting biomarkers of cancer (lat. Carcinoma). The company is spinoff of Ben-Gurion University (BGUni). Their new cancer test will add a layer to currently available cancer screening and diagnostics. The goal is to help save lives through early detection while being minimally invasive to the patient. Todos Medical’s vision is to become the standard of care in the way people are routinely checked for cancer (early detection). The new method is easy to implement and at a low cost, currently targeting the mass population as the first choice for cancer detection. The technology is a platform, and scientists are investigating methods for using the platform on other types of cancers. As a start scientists are focused on breast and colon cancers.

'Super T cells' engineered for optimal performance drive new gene-therapy approach

A clinical trial based on a unique two-pronged strategy for arming the immune system to more effectively attack cancer (lat. Carcinoma) cells has been initiated by the researchers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Patients treated through this early-stage clinical trial, which is available only at Roswell Park, will receive one-time injections of their own cells - 'super T cells' reprogrammed to make them more effective at targeting tumor cells, and armed with an added element to help them to evade one of cancer's most resilient defenses. The 'TGF beta' clinical trial, named for one of the elements that distinguish this approach, is part of an emerging class of immunotherapies that employ adoptive cell transfer.

New technology can improve functional abilities in Alzheimer’s patients

The wearable device that slows down Alzheimer's disease (lat. morbus Alzheimerianus), was developed by scientists from the Ohio State University, the USA. The researchers were able to show that deep brain stimulation using a small device that resembles a normal pacemaker, can slow the decline in the ability to make decisions in Alzheimer's patients. In their study, the researchers argue that the implantation of thin electrodes in the frontal zone of patients with Alzheimer's disease using a brain stimulator can improve the cognitive, behavioral and functional abilities of patients with this form of dementia.

New technology to detect abnormal scarring of wounds

Currently, medicals hard predict how scars will develop following surgery or after a burn wound, without applying the invasive testing. Excessive or abnormal scarring can significantly affect a patient’s quality of life, making it difficult. Scars can be painful when stretching significantly impeding motor activity of the person as well as causing psychological discomfort, making the everyday life more limited. Therefore, scientists developed a novel technology to identify heavy wound scars formation and providing doctors with the ability to predict and intervene it. They used nanoparticles to accurately predict whether the wound could cause excessive scarring, as is the case with keloids and skin contractures.

An innovative chip can detect cancer and diabetes

Japanese scientists have created the nonlinear optical crystal (NLOC) chip combining THz waves and the microfluidic device, which has the ability to detect influenza virus (lat. Tussis Epidemicus), diabetes (lat. Diabetes Mellitus) and even cancer (lat. Carcinoma). This method can analyze living cells in a non-destructive way and detect solution concentrations in volumes of less than a nanoliter. The technology is highly sensitive.

A smart contact lens can measure the level of glucose

The scientific group from South Korea had created an innovative smart contact lens that can measure the level of glucose in patients who have diabetes. This innovative technology has the capability to measure glucose levels through eye tears. Such method can painlessly monitor the level of glucose due to the blinding eye, which is much more comfortable than most current technologies.
