Imaging technique illuminates immune status of monkeys with HIV-like virus
(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) Findings from an animal study suggest that a non-invasive imaging technique could, with further development, become a tool to assess immune system recovery in people receiving treatment for HIV infection. Researchers used single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and a CD4-specific imaging probe to assess immune system changes throughout the bodies of macaques infected with SIV following initiation and interruption of antiretroviral therapy (ART). They evaluated pools of CD4+ T cells in tissues. (Source: EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases)

Study: Intrapleural Air Flow Can Enhance Mesothelioma CT Scans
Researchers in Australia believe they have discovered a simple way to enhance the accuracy of CT scanning for pleural abnormalities, potentially leading to better diagnostics for mesothelioma cancer. A research team from the University of Western Australia in Perth has shown the sensitivity of CT scans — used in the diagnostic process — can be improved by creating intrapleural air flow. The discovery stems from their six test cases of malignancies, including four patients with pleural mesothelioma. Chest Journal, the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians, published the study in June. ...

Personalized Lung Cancer Screening Tool Adds Asbestos Exposure
A University of Michigan and Veterans Affairs research team has developed a novel, personalized lung cancer screening tool that accounts for past asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure is best known as the primary cause of mesothelioma, but it also significantly increases the chance of developing lung cancer. Adding asbestos to the lung-cancer screening tool also should help identify mesothelioma in its earliest stages, when it is most treatable. Mesothelioma is not usually diagnosed until it has progressed into stage 3 or stage 4, when treatment is more palliative than potentially curative. The tool is designed to better i...
