Researchers have demonstrated that MRI scans could help to diagnose patients with cognitive problems due to HIV-related inflammation, presenting an alternative to lumbar punctures.
Researchers have suggested Zika may have adverse effects on the cardiovascular system based on new data from a small case report; an association which has previously been unreported.
In this editorial the authors discuss conventional diagnostic approaches and alternative diagnostic tests, which could be used in the future.
This review delves into new diagnostic Aspergillus spp. procedures, in addition, the authors look at intrinsic antifungal resistance and mechanisms of secondary resistance to triazoles in A. fumigatus.
Rapid diagnostic tests for detecting emerging antibiotic resistance are mostly available and should be used now state authors Patrice Nordmann and Laurent Poirel (University of Fribourg, Switzerland). This exclusive opinion piece discusses available diagnostics and why we should take action.
Researchers have demonstrated that a specific subclass of antibody is elevated in patients who develop severe secondary dengue; this could lead to better identification of those at risk and possibly improved treatments and vaccines.
This study evaluates the direct high-throughput multiple genetic detection system for H. pylori in gastric biopsy samples. Could this method efficiently diagnose and quantify H. pylori burden? And does it have the capacity to screen for virulence, antibiotic resistance and multistrain infections?
This editorial discusses the role of metabolomics in identifying TB biomarkers, which have shed light on previously unknown disease mechanisms and could contribute to improved TB diagnostics.
