Imaging reveals: Bacterial biofilms associated with colon cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Photo: Fluorescent image of biofilms on cancer tissue [17/12/2014] Since the first "catalog" of the normal bacterial makeup of the human body was published in 2012, numerous connections between illness and disturbances in the human microbiota have been found. Now scientists report yet another: Cancerous tumors in the ascending colon are characterized by biofilms, which are dense clumps of bacterial cells encased in a self-produced matrix.Imaging reveals: Bacterial biofilms associated with colon cancer - Read more

Experience counts with radiation therapy for head and neck cancer

Photo: X-Ray of head and neck area [09/12/2014] When it comes to specialized cancer surgery, it is generally true that the more experienced the surgeon, the better the outcome. The same might hold true for radiation therapy used to treat head and neck cancer, according to a new study.Experience counts with radiation therapy for head and neck cancer - Read more

2D images as the new tool for cancer prevention

Photo: 2D images identify gastric cancer-prone mutations [04/12/2014] Portuguese researchers have developed a new method, which from images of a protein in a population of cells quantifies its distribution (how much there is, and where in the cell) for that population. The discovery by researchers João Sanches, Raquel Seruca and colleagues has important medical implications since the cellular location of a protein is directly linked to its function.2D images as the new tool for cancer prevention - Read more

Photo: Image taken with the new technology [07/11/2014] Researchers are close to commercializing a new type of medical imaging technology that could diagnose cardiovascular disease by measuring ultrasound signals from molecules exposed to a fast-pulsing laser.High-speed 'label-free' imaging could reveal dangerous plaques - Read more

New nanodevice to improve cancer treatment monitoring

Photo: gold nanonparticules [28/10/2014] A miniature device can measure a patient's blood for methotrexate, a commonly used but potentially toxic cancer drug. Just as accurate and ten times less expensive than equipment currently used in hospitals, this nanoscale device has an optical system that can rapidly gauge the optimal dose of methotrexate a patient needs, while minimizing the drug's adverse effects.

[08/10/2014] The NanoKnife® therapy practiced at the Prostate Center in Offenbach am Main removes prostate tumors in a gentle manner im comparison to prostatectomy or radiation therapy. In this interview with MEDICA.de, Professor Michael K. Stehling explains the advantages of the focal therapy. Prostate cancer: gentle removal with irreversible electroporation - Read more

[01/10/2014] On November 10, 2014, astronaut Alexander Gerst will return to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS). He is not just anxiously expected by his family, but also by Dr. Anna-Maria Liphardt from the Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopedics at the German Sport University Cologne Laboratory in Space: Hot on the Trails of Cartilage Degradation - Read more
