Researchers have identified a specific group of circulating tumor cells in the blood stream of patients with breast cancer brain metastases. The finding is helping researchers to develop a new blood test to identify breast cancer patients at risk of developing brain metastasis.
Researchers have devised a new blood test that can detect if amyloid had begun to accumulate in the brain. The test help physicians diagnose Alzheimer's disease in a cheaper, less invasive way than currently available. The researchers will present their findings at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in London.
A new fruit fly model in development could lead to low cost blood tests to help diagnose a deadly prion disease.
Researchers report blood microRNA levels could reflect brain changes.
Researchers use a simple blood test to detect evidence of concussion in patients up to 7 days after injury has occurred.
Researchers report they are nearing development of a blood test that will accurately detect Alzheimer's disease and give doctors the ability to intervene at the earliest stage of the disease.
