Stanford and Northwestern scientists have discovered that Platelet Factor 4 (PF4) is a biomarker for lymphatic diseases, such as lipedema and lymphedema, and can reliably differentiate them from obesity, which is a common misdiagnosis.
Stanford researchers have developed a novel therapeutic approach to treat hospitalized patients with primary congestive heart failure using a transcatheter-based decompression system. Volume overload drives 90% of heart-failure hospitalizations.
Researchers in the laboratories of Nathanael Gray and Gerald Crabtree at Stanford University have developed and synthesized new small molecule chemotherapeutics for targeted (and potentially less toxic) treatment of cancers having high BCL6 levels including lymphomas and other
?-thalassemia is a devastating blood disorder caused by mutations in the HBB gene encoding ?-globin, where treatment involves lifelong, costly management of the resulting lack of hemoglobin and hemolytic anemia.
Aging is one of the leading causes that is associated with brain dysfunction, degeneration, and disease. Progressive inflammation in the brain due to age adversely affects brain function and increases susceptibility to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease.
Stanford scientists have developed a novel approach to help patients with short bowel syndrome by using intestinal lengthening. The solution involves injecting a degradable hydrogel into the intestinal wall to narrow the lumen and enable the confinement of a coiled spring.
Researchers in the Murmann Mixed Signal Group have developed a pipelined chip architecture with inverted residual and linear bottlenecks-based networks for energy efficient Machine Learning inference on edge devices.
Researchers at Stanford University have developed a method which integrates cell barcoding and high-throughput sequencing to quantify tumor growth in genetically engineered mouse models of human cancer (called 'Tuba-seq” for Tumor barcoding coupled with seq
