Sorting cells with sound waves
Researchers have devised a new way to separate cells by exposing them to sound waves as they flow through a tiny channel. Their device, about the size of a dime, could be used to detect the extremely rare tumor cells that circulate in cancer patients' blood, helping doctors predict whether a tumor is going to spread.

Glucose meter of a different color provides continuous monitoring
Engineers are bringing a touch of color to glucose monitoring. The researchers developed a new continuous glucose monitoring material that changes color as glucose levels fluctuate, and the wavelength shift is so precise that doctors and patients may be able to use it for automatic insulin dosing -- something not possible using current point measurements like test strips.

Protein in 'good cholesterol' may be a key to treating pulmonary hypertension
(University of California - Los Angeles Health Sciences) A new study at UCLA demonstrates that oxidized lipids may contribute to pulmonary hypertension. Using a rodent model, the researchers showed that a peptide mimicking part of the main protein in HDL cholesterol, may help reduce the production of oxidized lipids in pulmonary hypertension. They also found that reducing the amount of oxidized lipids improved the rodents' heart and lung function.

Kessler Foundation researchers publish first study of brain activation in MS using fNIRS
(Kessler Foundation) Using functional near infrared spectroscopy, Kessler Foundation researchers showed differential brain activation patterns between people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and healthy controls. This is first MS study to examine brain activation using fNIRS during a cognitive task. 'Neuroimaging and cognition using functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in multiple sclerosis' published online June 11 by Brain Imaging and Behavior.
