Digital biomarker to guide cancer therapy and predict response duration

Precision oncology has led to approved, molecularly specific, biomarker-defined indications for targeted therapies. With the number of validated drug targets increasing, testing each patient’s tumor for all markers related to all possible targeted therapies is infeasible due to limited amount of tissue usually obtained via biopsies. In addition, the current companion diagnostic approach used for […]

New research assesses naturalistic driving techniques to link vision impairment and traffic accidents

New research published in JAMA Ophthalmology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham has used naturalistic driving techniques, or unobtrusive sensors and cameras in vehicles, to link vision impairment in older drivers to at-fault crashes and near-crashes as assessed by in-vehicle instrumentation. The in-vehicle devices installed in each older driver’s own vehicle consisted of five-channel […]
