New analysis methodology may revolutionize breast cancer therapy

Stroma cells are derived from connective tissue and may critically influence tumor growth. This knowledge is not new. However, a team of researchers has developed a novel methodology for investigation. Using modern mass spectrometry, tumor-promoting activities from breast fibroblasts were directly determined from needle biopsy samples.

The women’s health technology or so-called femtech market has been on the rise for the last couple of years, but it has mainly revolved around fertility and pregnancy. We believe that female health topics reach far beyond such traditional issues and players should concentrate more on menopause, endometriosis, or mental health, just to name a few areas. Thus, we tried to collect companies which are on top of their game in the conventional fertility and/or pregnancy area, but also start-ups and ventures who are looking way beyond that. Here’s our guide to 10 outstanding companies in women’s health. The w...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: NeurocomputingAuthor(s): Yun Gu, Jie YangAbstractContent-based Medical Image Retrieval (CBMIR) presents promising results in computer-aided diagnosis which provides the clinicians with interpretative guidance based on the visual similarity. In this paper, we focus on the tasks of histopathological image retrieval for breast cancer diagnosis. Instead of the holistic-based and cell-based methods proposed in previous works, we propose a multi-magnification correlation hashing (MMCH) framework that learns the discriminative binary codes for histopathological images. The p...

However, the treatment options for benign or malignant tumors are different, which makes the diagnosis of breast cancer important. In this paper, the subset method is proposed to improve the single-output Chebyshev-polynomial neural network (SOCPNN), and the modified SOCPNN has a 100.00% testing accuracy in pattern classification on the Wi...
