CellMax Life, the precision cancer testing company, recently announced the commercial availability of CellMax-LBx Liquid Biopsy in India. CellMax-LBx is a cancer blood test which analyzes circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA). The assay provides oncologists with a valuable tool in managing their patients’ cancer treatments, monitoring treatment response, and assessing the risk of recurrence.
Diet-related diseases like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are known to have a major inflammatory component. However, the molecular pathways linking diet-induced changes with inflammation remained elusive. In a new study, Christoph Binder’s Group at CeMM and the Medical University of Vienna identified crucial inflammatory processes in NAFLD and found that malondialdehyde (MDA), a biomarker for oxidative stress, plays a key role in the development of NAFLD and can be neutralized by specific natural antibodies – a novel approach towards a potential therapy for the prevalent disease.
