Bite-Sized Breakthroughs

Detect, Diagnose, Delay
A new test has been developed to diagnose amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. The test detects the presence of biomarker TDP-43 even in the earliest disease stages when levels are low (1). Early diagnosis may enable drug development to stop or delay progression of disease.

Redefining Antibody Testing
SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing has so far lacked specificity, but scientists believe a new two-step definition – dual-antibody positivity – will improve screening. Under this definition, antibodies are measured as a dual-positive response against the receptor binding domain and nucleocapsid proteins of SARS-CoV-2 (2).

About the Author

Olivia Gaskill

During my undergraduate degree in psychology and Master’s in neuroimaging for clinical and cognitive neuroscience, I realized the tasks my classmates found tedious – writing essays, editing, proofreading – were the ones that gave me the greatest satisfaction. I quickly gathered that rambling on about science in the bar wasn’t exactly riveting for my non-scientist friends, so my thoughts turned to a career in science writing. At Texere, I get to craft science into stories, interact with international experts, and engage with readers who love science just as much as I do.
