Artificial intelligence could improve therapy for lymphoma


Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of lymph node cancer, requires chemotherapy and radiation therapy that can be very stressful for patients. A research group in Vienna is working on a method to predict the course of the disease with the help of artificial intelligence algorithms. This would facilitate a ...

From metabolite profiles to molecular biomarkers for colorectal cancer


The aim of a European project (TRANSCAN) is to identify metabolite signatures that are associated with all stages in the development of colorectal cancer. Metabolomic analysis was performed on more than 2,000 plasma samples from individuals with colorectal cancer, colorectal adenoma and a control ...

A protein indicating higher breast cancer mortality risk

Researchers found new biomarker for breast cancer


With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, oncologists found a biomarker for breast cancer having a poor prognosis and developed two viable methods to detect it in tissue samples. Breast cancer is the most frequent malignant tumour in women worldwide. In Austria, about 5,500 women develop ...

Tracking microbial faecal pollution in water

Identifying faecal bacteria by their DNA


In a project supported by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the microbiologist Andreas Farnleitner is looking at new methods for analysing faecal pollution in water. Using DNA analytics, the scientist aims to develop comprehensive and simple methods to determine the extent and origin of faecal ...

Messenger substance live on show

Important messenger substance in human cells measured 'live' for the first time


Scientists have succeeded in making real-time measurements of changes in the concentration of the important messenger substance nitric oxide (NO) in human cells for the first time. The breakthrough, which has been published in the journal "Nature Communications", was achieved by fusing two ...


A ranking of environmental chemicals


How dangerous are environmental chemicals and what is their effect on human health? In a project funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the pharmacist Daniela Schuster is currently developing a computer-based "early warning system" for potentially dangerous substances.In our daily lives we are ...


Research that more than meets the eye

New Technique Analyses Blood Flow in Glaucoma Patients


The link between blood flow in the retina and the development of glaucoma can now be measured accurately for the first time. This was made possible by the further development of an established measurement method, optical coherence tomography (OCT), which enables the visual assessment of the ...


Molecular genealogy in the Arctic sediment


Heat-loving bacteria found in the Arctic seabed have their origins in oil springs and the depths of the Earth's crust. This is the finding of a project supported by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, which used molecular biology to study "misplaced" bacteria such as these. The possibility that ...


New Light On Electron Density

Measuring electron orbitals


For the first time, it has been possible to measure electron density in individual molecular states using what is known as the photoelectric effect. Now published in Science, this method represents a key building block in the development of organic semiconductor elements. Supported by the ...


Under observation - restless atoms cause materials to age


Atoms have the habit of jumping through solids - a practice that physicists have recently been able to follow for the first time using a brand new method. This scientific advance was made possible thanks to the utilisation of electron synchrotrons. The detailed findings of the project, backed by ...
