This test can detect when your body is fighting a virus

A test that measures the RNA or protein molecules in human cells is also able to detect when your body is fighting a viral infection from respiratory symptoms, according to Yale researchers. The test involves a nasal swab and could be a faster and cheaper way to diagnose respiratory viral illnesses. “It’s a simpler test

Diamonds and PET scans can diagnose Alzheimer’s sooner

Yale Medicine researchers have used a new technique involving diamonds and PET scans to look for biomarkers of Alzheimer’s for early detection. The researchers have used a technique called vibrational spectroscopy that involves using a light reflection off of a diamond core to confirm characteristics of Alzheimer’s in blood plasma. The technique was reported as
