    Reproducible diagnostic metabolites in plasma from typhoid fever patients in Asia and Africa

    Elin Näsström et al.
    Mass spectrometry on plasma from patients with typhoid fever and other febrile disease identified and validated 24 metabolites that can distinguish typhoid from other febrile diseases, providing a new approach for typhoid diagnostics.

    Diagnostic potential for a serum miRNA neural network for detection of ovarian cancer

    Kevin M Elias et al.
    Application of machine learning to serum miRNA profiles generated through next generation sequencing identifies a biologically relevant miRNA signature which can be deployed as a qPCR test to assist the diagnosis of epithelial ovarian cancer.

    Childhood injury after a parental cancer diagnosis

    Ruoqing Chen et al.
    Children with a parent of cancer have a higher rate of hospital contact for injury, especially immediately after the cancer diagnosis.

    Dynamics of preventive vs post-diagnostic cancer control using low-impact measures

    Andrei R Akhmetzhanov, Michael E Hochberg
    A model based on empirical parameter estimates predicts that arresting cancer cell growth by less than 1% per day will produce optimal outcomes in preventing life-threatening cancers, and that such preventive measures are generally more successful than post-diagnostic interventions.

    Modelling the drivers of the spread of Plasmodium falciparum hrp2 gene deletions in sub-Saharan Africa

    Oliver J Watson et al.
    The introduction of rapid diagnostic testing for Plasmodium falciparum infections can explain an increased emergence of diagnostic resistant pfhrp2-deleted parasites in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Diagnostic potential of tumor DNA from ovarian cyst fluid

    Yuxuan Wang et al.
    Mutations in the DNA of ovarian cyst fluid can inform the need for surgery and indicate the type of neoplastic lesion present.

    Point of View: Tuberculosis innovations mean little if they cannot save lives

    Madhukar Pai, Jennifer Furin
    Ending the TB epidemic requires scaling up access to new TB tools so that they can benefit the patients in low- and middle-income countries that need them the most.

    BRAFV600E cooperates with CDX2 inactivation to promote serrated colorectal tumorigenesis

    Naoya Sakamoto et al.
    Genetic analyses reveal how CDX2 and BRAF defects seen in serrated colorectal cancer (CRCs), a poor prognosis CRC subset, cooperate in tumorigenesis in humans and in a mouse cancer model.
