Recent Stories for Research
Central nervous system infection due to herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a medical emergency and requires a rapid diagnosis and initiation of therapy. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology by Matthew Binnicker, Ph.D., Mark Espy, and Cole Irish, compared a routine real-time PCR assay for HSV type 1 (HSV-1) and HSV-2 to a recently FDA-approved direct PCR assay using cerebrospinal fluid samples.
GenomeDx Biosciences today announced that the company has expanded its research agreement with Mayo Clinic to initiate a validation study to expand the use of the Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier, a genomic test capable of predicting metastatic prostate cancer, for use in prostate biopsy specimens.
