Scientists at MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research have developed a tiny sensor that can provide doctor's onging data regarding a patient’s cancer to see how a therapy is working or a cancer is progressing. The sensor can be implanted in cancerous tissue during a biopsy. The sensor then measures predetermined biomarkers and wirelessly sends data to an external device, allowing physicians to adjust and monitor therapies accordingly.Full Story

Surgery, associated with cardiovascular diseases, such as ischemia, often require the implantation of vascular grafts to restore blood flow, but vascular grafts are susceptible to clot formation, which results in compulsory and lifelong intake of anticoagulants and additional surgery for some. The Journal of Medicinal Chemistry reports ITMO University scientists have developed artificial blood vessels that allow a drug-containing coating applied to the inner surface of the vessel that can dissolve clots.Full Story

Google, Novartis, and EPGL Race to Invent the First 'Autofocus' Contact Lens. A market that could be worth, "anywhere between $10 billion and $50 billion in the next ten years."

Glucose is consumed as an energy source by almost all life forms, from bacteria to human. The uptake of glucose by cells closely reflects their energetic needs, and is becoming poorly regulated in many pathological conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cancer. To visualize this important process, several prominent techniques have been developed in the past few decades. A new technique called stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) imaging is being used by labelling glucose with a small alkyne tag (i.e., carbon-carbon triple bond) to generate a strong and characteristic Raman scattering signal in the otherwise silent region, which can be picked up by SRS microscope with high sensitivity and specificity to produce a quantitative concentration map in three dimensions.Full Story
