A new technique that could detect minute amounts of a #protein in patient samples has been developed by scientists.

The technique, which is described in the study "Detection of interferon- protein reveals differential levels and cellular sources in disease" will aid the #diagnosis and treatment of numerous autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and dermatomyositis.

"The ultrasensitive detection of interferon- protein in human material can provide novel insights into disease-causing pathways." http://hubs.ly/H079v3x0

Study from @StanfordMed shows mouse #stemcells respond more quickly to injury when they prime with #protein.

Study found mice given the priming protein recover muscle function more quickly after damage, their skin heals more rapidly and even the shaved area around the injury regrows hair more quickly.

"Our research shows that by priming the body before an injury you can speed the process of tissue repair and recovery, similar to how a vaccine prepares the body to a fight infection. We believe this could be a therapeutic approach to improve recovery in situations where injuries can be anticipated, such as surgery, combat or sports." http://hubs.ly/H077JFR0

@broadinstitute developed a new #CRISPR-based tool that will detect #virus and #bacteria in blood and urine samples and named it SHERLOCK.

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats, also known as CRISPR, evokes a sense of unease in many people, especially since the term has become synonymous to #gene editing technology.

SHERLOCK is an extremely sensitive CRISPR-based diagnostic tool that scientists and medical practitioners can use to detect even the faintest presence of virus and bacteria from a patient's blood or urine sample. http://hubs.ly/H077xXZ0

Tiny #molecule comes from the skin of frogs could be used to fight #flu #viruses under the microscope and in mice.

A new study suggests that mucus from the skin of certain frogs can be harnessed to obliterate flu viruses.Some frog mucus contains antimicrobial peptides, which are #immune system molecules that can neutralize #bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

More research is needed to determine just how effective a peptide can be in helping humans beat the flu, froggy style. http://hubs.ly/H0779s-0

#Antibiotic resistance is a huge issue in hospitals.Scientists from @UWMadison now believe #CRISPR could solve it.

CRISPR has been making waves over the past few years, leading to what some are calling the “CRISPR Revolution,” impacting industries from healthcare to agriculture. Initially borrowed from #bacteria, which use CRISPR as an #immune defense against viruses, the #gene-editing tool works by recording snippets of the attacker’s #DNA, so that the bacteria can recognize and eliminate future invaders. http://hubs.ly/H077cKg0

Scientists find that #Alzheimer is caused by some #microbes, a specific #virus and 2 specific types of #bacteria.

This was indicated by an editorial produced by a worldwide team of scientists and clinicians. This major call for action is based on substantial published evidence and research into Alzheimer’s. http://hubs.ly/H0777Xj0

Many genetic samples are needed from #autism patients to identify all the #genes at play. @SPARKforAutism could hep!

Autism has a strong genetic component. To date, approximately 50 genes have been identified that almost certainly play a role in autism, and researchers estimate that at least an additional 300 are involved.

That's where SPARK comes in. SPARK is an online scientific study and community of individuals with autism and their families. Launched just a year ago, JFK Partners and Children's Hospital Colorado in Aurora, CO have partnered with SPARK in enrolling over 1,168 people, 400 of whom have autism. http://hubs.ly/H07740r0
