Researchers have developed a tool that could help to monitor the spread of infectious diseases. The newly developed blood test could provide information about whether and when an individual has been exposed to infection.
A collaborative research team led by Australian scientists from CSIRO will be testing breath markers for the detection of malaria in regions of high malaria infection.
A breakthrough study into the mosquito-borne parasite finds a link between the K13 gene and the increased resistance to leading treatments.
Device holds promise for on-demand applications and accelerated analysis in the laboratory, and could be used to send data over lower-tech mobile phones, common in the developing world.
Team presents device that can sort cells by their elasticity, having first designed the system using numerical simulations, which they hope will influence the way future microfluidic devices are designed.
The test uses Attenuated Total Reflection-Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), making use of infrared light to detect fatty acids in the plasmodium parasite.
This research article outlines an investigation into the use of LC and fluorescence detection methods for the determination of tafenoquine in dried blood spots and plasma.
This book review outlines the topics discussed within the ‘Drug Development Perspectives’ book and provides a personal perspective in relation to its content.
