By Admin Fighting Superbugs
Decoding the DNA of bacteria is transforming the way we identify infectious diseases in the microbiology lab. That could help prevent the spread of dangerous, drug-resistant infections in hospitals and nursing homes, says Misialek. "Instead of identifying bugs in the traditional way and waiting days or weeks for the results, we can analyze genes and get exact identification sooner," he adds. That could help protect vulnerable patients against the spread of superbugs like MRSA, C. diff and streptococcus pneumoniae that currently resist treatment.

A tiny new tool to get rid of brain clots will be a "game changer for stroke treatment," Roizen says. Although clot-dissolving drugs are the first line of treatment for the most common type of stroke, when they don't do the trick, physicians can now use a stent retriever to remove the small mass. A wire with a mesh-like tip is guided through the artery into the brain to grab the clot. When the wire is removed, the clot goes with it. The American Heart Association has given the device its strongest recommendation, after studies found it improves the odds that certain patients will survive and function normally again.
By Admin Better cancer screening
Some of the deadliest, most difficult-to-find cancers may be detected by analyzing blood for abnormal proteins. Cancer produces these abnormal protein structures. Up to now, blood tests weren't sensitive enough to identify them. A new type of analysis allows researchers to find the proteins earlier, which means cancer treatment can be started at an earlier stage. Cleveland Clinic experts predict this will lead to more effective tests for pancreatic cancer, considered the most deadly type with only about 7 percent surviving 5 years, as well as for prostate and ovarian cancer.
