Journal Highlight: Improving outcomes of screening breast MRI with practice evolution: Initial clinical experience with 3T compared to 1.5T

Date: Apr 21, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This report set out to investigate if changing from 1.5T to 3T breast MRI is associated with a change in BI-RADS categories, positive predictive value of biopsy recommendation, or cancer detection rates in high-risk screening breast MRI.

Serum or plasma? Mass spec metabolomics decides

Date: Apr 15, 2014

Author: Steve Down

The ability of the complementary techniques of GC/MS and LC/MS to compare the metabolomes of rat plasma and serum has been investigated by Chinese scientists, who found that GC/MS has better reproducibility.

Breaking the law: Laser focus

Date: Apr 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

An international team has demonstrated that a nanoparticle trapped with a laser beam can temporarily violate the strict second law of thermodynamics, a feat that is impossible on the everyday time and length scales of our reality.

Inflammatory spectroscopy: Hearty biomarkers

Date: Apr 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

A research team in the USA has discovered that elevated levels, as identified by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, of two recently identified proteins in the body can act as markers for inflammation and thus indicators of the presence of cardiovascular disease.

Electronic prescription: Information improvements

Date: Apr 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Safer prescribing of medications could be possible thanks to a better approach for designing medication alerts that are presented in electronic medical records. The new approach, described online in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association also increased efficiency and reduced workload for health care providers.

Journal Highlight: Chemometric application for thermal behavior of blends of bamboo with solid fossil fuel

Date: Apr 14, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The suitabilities as fuels of blends of bamboo biomass with low-rank high-sulfur coal were assessed by thermogravimetric analysis supported by chemometric analysis, correlation and principal component analysis.

Canine breast cancer: Model for human equivalent

Date: Apr 14, 2014

Author: Steve Down

Four proteins found in the serum of dogs with breast cancer have been reported to produce an autoantibody response on human breast cancer, strengthening the case for using the canine breast cancer as a model for the human form.

Journal Highlight: A quantitative analysis of the polyamine in lung cancer patient fingernails by LC-ESI-MS/MS

Date: Apr 7, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A quantitative analysis of eight polyamines in lung cancer patient fingernails for diagnosis and to assess the depth of the disease was conducted by LC/MS/MS following reaction with 4-(N,N-dimethylaminosulfonyl)-7-fluoro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole.
