Laser-based saliva test to help diagnose diseases early 23.4.2018 General News
A novel laser-based technique can analyse human saliva and non-invasively diagnose immune system disorders even before the symptoms appear, increasing the chances of recovery, scientists say. Disorders of the immune system lead to various diseases from allergy and type I diabetes to more dangerous autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis. However, such diseases are diagnosed only when the symptoms are clearly demonstrated. Researchers of St Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in Russia developed a unique method of immune diseases diagnosing before the symptoms appear. They proposed a laser-correlation spectroscopic technique (also called dynamic light scattering) for studying the immune response in body fluids, for example, in saliva. "We offer a cheap and effective method of diagnosing the diseases without any indication. We need a laser, a receiver and a programme for data analysis, said Elina Nepomnyashchaya, from SPbPU. In the course of routine clinical examination, ..

Diabetes: New hope for better wound healing 23.4.2018 General News
A recent study has offered new hope for the diabetic patient with slow-healing wounds.The Yale University research uncovered the role of a particular protein in maintaining the wounds and suggested that reversing its effects could help aid wound healing in patients with diabetes."We discovered that a specific protein, thrombospondin-2 (TSP2), is elevated in wounds of patients with diabetes as well as in animal models of diabetes," said Britta Kunkemoeller. "To determine whether TSP2 contributes to delayed wound healing, we genetically removed TSP2 from a mouse model of diabetes and observed improved wound healing. Our study shows that TSP2 could be a target for a specific therapy for diabetic wounds."Most previous work on wound healing in diabetes has focused on the types of cells that are involved in wound healing such as immune cells, skin cells and the cells that form blood vessels. By contrast, Kunkemoeller's research focuses on TSP2, a component of the extracellular matrix. The ..
