Using machine learning, researchers have developed an algorithm that can accurately diagnose Alzheimer’s disease from a single MRI brain scan. The system is more accurate than any pre-existing diagnostic tool available to doctors and can also distinguish early-stage disease from more advanced stages.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Alzheimer's Disease, Diagnosis, Brain, MRI, I
The eVTOL age is just a couple of years from dawning. We caught up with Archer's Director of Business Development, Andrew Cummins, to learn what the first steps will look like when electric air taxis begin taking to the skies in 2024-25.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: eVTOL, Archer Aviation, Air Taxis, Electric Aircraft, Interviews
Human balance is known to decline with age, and an international team of researchers has provided new evidence around whether this particular ability can serve as an indicator for risk of disease and death. The study involving more than 1,700 subjects found a disproportionate rate of death among those unable to complete a 10-second balance test, with the authors suggesting such an examination cou
With no way of completely curing the condition, earlier diagnosis of Parkinson's disease can have profound impacts on treatment options and a patient's quality of life. Scientists are making inroads when it comes to picking up the tell-tale signs of the disease's onset, and a new first-of-a-kind study has demonstrated how these might be revealed through an inexpensive blood test that has shown a
Biopharmaceutical company MindMed has announced the first topline data from a novel Phase 2 trial testing high doses of LSD as a treatment for anxiety. The results indicate one to two LSD sessions can generate rapid and sustained reductions to anxiety, however, significantly larger trials will be needed to validate these findings.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Psychedelic Medicine, Anxiet
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new test for Alzheimer’s disease. The test is the first in vitro diagnostic tool for Alzheimer’s to be approved for use in the United States measuring amyloid protein levels in spinal fluid.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Diagnostic devices, Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, FDA
Preliminary data presented at the American Association of Cancer Research Annual Meeting has provided promising signs for a new cancer treatment that combines immunotherapy with an mRNA vaccine. The first reports from the Phase 1 human trial indicate the experimental treatment is safe and potentially effective against solid tumors.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Vaccines,
Biotech company Moderna has announced the first interim data from a clinical trial testing its mRNA COVID-19 vaccine in children under the age of six. The results show similar antibody responses after two doses to those seen in adults. Moderna plans to apply for US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) emergency authorization very soon.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags:
In the last few years, the electric VTOL world has been inundated with an avalanche of cash, talent and ideas – it's been a long time since there was this much fresh energy in aviation. Companies like Joby, Lilium, Archer, Vertical Aerospace, eHang and others have gone public at sky-high valuations, promising to revolutionise urban and inter-city transport with clean, quiet, affordable electric a
Napping for longer than one hour or several times a day could be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease according to new research. It’s suggested excessive daytime napping shares a bidirectional relationship with cognitive decline, both reflecting and shaping changes in the brain.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Sleeping, Sleep, Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, Ag is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
