• Brain Stimulation Device Could Make Precision Mental Health A Reality

    May 21 | Bio-IT World | In the not-too-distant future, disorders of the brain could be treated with the same precision as heart disease and cancer. The means will be a therapeutic brain-computer interface (BCI) the size of a small blueberry for people suffering from treatment-resistant depression that uses a similar type of implant technology as Elon Musk’s Neuralink for helping paralyzed people speak.

  • Liquid Biopsy Under Development for Measuring Drug Response

    May 16 | Bio-IT World | The lab of W. Andy Tao, professor of biochemistry at Purdue University, is pioneering a way to assess drug response based on metabolizing proteins found in circulating extracellular vesicles (EVs), which could serve as a surrogate of their expression level in the liver and become therapeutic targets for some cancers.

  • New Test Looks at Unique Response of MS Patients to Epstein-Barr Virus

    May 15 | Bio-IT World | Significant evidence now exists implicating the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) as a causal factor in the development of multiple sclerosis (MS), making treatment of the virus a priority. To that end, research scientists at Trinity College Dublin have developed a blood test to measure the immune response to EBV that could be used as an outcome measure in future clinical trials in people with established MS.

  • AI System For Diagnosing Rare Diseases and Solving Medical Cold Cases

    May 14 | Bio-IT World | Using an artificial intelligence (AI) model that was trained on millions of variants from identified genetic disorders and incorporates the complex decision-making process of human molecular scientists, investigators at Baylor College of Medicine are on track to automate the diagnosis of an enormous number of undiagnosed conditions.

  • The Replication Crisis: How Can Open Science Improve the Scale of Reproducibility?

    May 10 | Bio-IT World | For years, two of the key principles of science have been replication and the ability to produce consistent results. Yet, scientists across fields today are still grappling with challenges in ensuring the repeatability and reliability of their findings. More recently, this has been referred to as the ‘replication crisis’ or ‘reproducibility crisis’ and details the growing concerns around the lack of reproducibility in scientific studies. More
  • Digital Twin of Infant Microbiome Reliably Predicts Cognitive Deficits

    May 08 | Bio-IT World | Researchers at the University of Chicago have succeeded in creating a digital twin of the gut microbiome of premature infants that reliably models the many interactions taking place between quickly changing bacterial inhabitants. The so-called “Q-net” model, created with generative artificial intelligence (AI), was used to make predictions about which infants were going to have neurodevelopmental deficits using head circumference as the proxy.

  • Hype and Disruption: Post-Dagdigian Trends Talk Splits in Two

    May 07 | Bio-IT World | It finally happened. After being absent from last year’s “Trends from the Trenches” talk at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, BioTeam cofounder Chris Dagdigian has officially retired from delivering the traditional conference-closer. More
  • Digital Twins in an Expansive Future

    May 02 | Bio-IT World | The practice of medicine has struggled to adopt data-driven tools, Dr. Caroline Chung told the audience at last month’s Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. Even when tools are developed, getting them into clinical practice has been slow. More
  • Novel Diagnostic System Finds Role of Immune System in Alzheimer’s Disease

    May 01 | Bio-IT World | Researchers in Denmark have devised a blood-based diagnostic technique that can detect even trace amounts of an aggregated protein indicative of Alzheimer’s disease before any disease-related changes show up on a PET scan, one of the traditional testing methods. More
  • Arena Bioworks: Changing the Incentive Model for Biomedical Research

    Apr 30 | Bio-IT World | Last week, Steve Pagliuca was flying to Milan to catch an Atalanta football match, an Italian professional football club of which he is part owner. But before his flight, he stopped to talk biotech at the Bio-IT World Venture, Innovation & Partnering Conference held in conjunction with the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. More
