Scientists have discovered markers in the blood that can differentiate between a benign mole and a melanoma in the eye, while also identifying if the cancer has spread.
The UK's National Cancer Research Institute has announced several promising new methods for detecting cancer early, as detailed at the 2019 NCRI Cancer Conference.
Bacteria have been found coating drinking water pipes and tanks on the International Space Station (ISS) — but what are the potential risks to human health?
Sperm quality can be improved with a simple diet supplement containing a compound found in cooked tomatoes — a breakthrough that could transform the outlook for men with fertility problems.
Scientists warn that "untold human suffering" is unavoidable without deep and lasting shifts in human activities that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and other factors related to climate change.
The test procedure is hoped to positively impact tuberculosis diagnosis in adults living in remote areas.
Researchers have developed a new method of extracting hydrogen from water more efficiently, which could help underpin the capture of renewable energy in the form of sustainable fuel.
In contrast to liquid biopsies, which detect genetic mutations or other cancer-related alterations in DNA, the technology focuses on modifications to DNA known as methyl groups.
Oncimmune's EarlyCDT Lung test has been found to reduce the incidence of patients with late-stage lung cancer at diagnosis, compared with standard clinical diagnosis.
Researchers have developed a novel technology that could sensitively detect and classify cancer cells, as well as determine disease aggressiveness, from the least invasive biopsies.
By measuring intact living cancer cells in the patient's blood, rather than the PSA protein, the method potentially provides a more accurate test for prostate cancer.
Eye-tracking technology could be used in future to predict if people with mild memory and thinking impairments will go on to develop Alzheimer's disease.
It is now possible for materials researchers to make quick predictions about how certain elements will behave at different pressures.
