Nanoparticles to detect spreading cancer

A company started by Rutgers scientists is developing nanoparticles that may be able to detect cancer as it spreads hematogenously from site to site. The particles may even eventually be used to mark tissue that would be removed in surgery. https://www.technologynetworks.com/tn/news/faster-more-accurate-cancer-detection-using-nanoparticles-295090

New “OurNotes” technology allows patients to be more involved with their healthcare

A study at UCLA is examining the use of a new technology called “OurNotes” which would allow patients to help in their own medical documentations.  Rather than being a passive participants, patients are given electronic copies of their medical records

New genomic technique aimed at targeting tumor types for specific therapy

Just two days ago, the FDA approved a new genomic technique designed to identify tumor markers for specific therapy.  Because cancers can be rapidly mutating in terms of markers, this test can help identify those key receptors and help streamline

Another way to increase rates of flu vaccination?

A recent study published earlier this year reports that immunizing surgical patients for the seasonal flu before they are discharged home from the hospital is safe. This article could provide a basis for hospital wide policy changes during flu season.
