Scientists identify cancer biomarkers in breast milk

Proteins could one day allow breast cancer screening to be done with a blood test


A simple blood test for women of all ages and risk levels could one day be possible thanks to a new set of protein biomarkers that researchers identified using breast milk. “Although mammograms are a useful tool for catching breast cancer early, they aren’t typically recommended for low-risk ...

Glycation in the body: Trigger of protein dysfunction in aging and age-related diseases

Study powerfully demonstrates how the consequences of glycation for the whole proteome can be studied


To maintain organ functions, the proteins in the cells need to be kept in balance (proteostasis). This state is disturbed with increasing age. One possible cause is glycation, in which sugars and proteins combine irreversibly. These advanced glycation end products (AGEs) accumulate and can lead ...

Blow flies can be used to detect use of chemical weapons, other pollutants

Using mass spectrometry to determine the chemicals in the blow flies' guts


Researchers at the School of Science at IUPUI have found that blow flies can be used as chemical sensors, with a particular focus on the detection of chemical warfare agents. Despite widespread bans, chemical weapons have been deployed in recent conflicts such as the Syrian civil war, and some ...

Researchers develop new approach to discover pervasive ‘forever’ chemicals known as PFAS

Advanced mass spectrometry helps unravel complexity of PFAS chemistry


PFAS, a family of thousands of human-made chemicals, are everywhere, and some of them are known to be harmful for our bodies and the environment. Even more frightening is how little we know about these pervasive pollutants found in everything from food packaging and cleaning products to ...
