Portable Lab You Plug into Your Phone can Diagnose Illnesses Like Coronavirus

Engineers with the University of Cincinnati have created a tiny portable lab that plugs into your phone, connecting it automatically to a doctor's office through a custom app UC developed. The lab the size of a credit card can diagnose infectious diseases such as coronavirus, malaria, HIV or Lyme disease or countless other health conditions like depression and anxiety.

PenninxAbstractBackgroundTemporality of the association of low omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA) plasma levels with depression remains questionable. To determine the underlying nature of these associations, this study examined the bidirectional longitudinal associations of n-3 PUFA plasma levels with (presence, onset and course of) depressive disorders and symptoms.MethodsBaseline (n = 2912, 28.6% with current depressive disorder...

Lucassen, Jiang-Ning ZhouAbstractThe retinoid family members, including vitamin A and derivatives like 13-cis-retinoic acid (ITT) and all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), are essential for normal functioning of the developing and adult brain. When vitamin A intake is excessive, however, or after ITT treatment, increased risks have been reported for depression and suicidal ideation.Here, we review pre-clinical and clinical evidence supporting association between retinoids and de...

Ittner, Tim KarlAbstractAlzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive cognitive decline and the accumulation of two hallmark proteins, amyloid-beta (Aβ) and tau. Traditionally, transgenic mouse models for AD have generally focused on Aβ pathology, however, in recent years a number of tauopathy transgenic mouse models have been developed, including the TAU58/2 mouse model. These mice develop tau pathology...

Authors: Park NS, Jang Y, Chiriboga DA, Chung S Abstract The purpose of this study was to examine the correlates of depressive symptoms among older Korean adults in three geographic locations with varying densities of the Korean population: mainland Korea (mostly Koreans), New York metropolitan area (high Korean density), and west central Florida (low Korean density). The study focused on the role of family and friend networks. Data were drawn from three sources: (1) a multistage national sample of Koreans in South Korea (n = 403); (2) a survey conducted in the western/central Florida area that used a variety of cu...
