There is an urgent need to develop more efficient diagnosis for acute pneumonia especially at early stages. By using cANGPTL4-centered biomarker, rapid diagnosis of pneumonia can be achieved from relatively non-invasive samples such as serum, sputum, and broncho-alveolar lavage fluid (BALF). In conjuction with local and overseas collaborators, samples from acute pneumonia patients were analyzed and matched with controls. By constructing a cANGPTL4 isoform-specific enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) diag...

Loss of sight is prevalent among the elderly subjects. Various eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are the major causes of loss of vision. Early detection of such diseases can impede the progression of blindness. However, it is time consuming and laborious to conduct mass screening. Hence, computer aided diagnosis  can help to overcome these drawbacks.

The global prevalence of dengue has increased dramatically in recent decades and the disease is now endemic in more than 100 countries with 4 different types of the virus found (serotypes 1-4). Unfortunately, accurate dengue detection proves to be elusive as very often the diagnosis of dengue in endemic regions is based on clinical presentation, and can be confused with other viral diseases with similar clinical features like Japanese Encephalitis and yellow fever. Classical methods are consider...

Diabetic foot is one of the major complications experienced by diabetic patients. Thus, early detection and appropriate treatment can prevent traumatic outcomes such as lower limb amputation. The temperature variations on the plantar foot can be related to diabetic foot complications. Infrared thermography allows qualitative and visual documentation of temperature fluctuation in vascular tissues. This work introduces a computer aided detection (CAD) system for diabetic foot using plantar foot th...

Antibiotic (AB) resistant bacteria are a rising public health threat and causes at least 2 million infections and 23,000 deaths each year in the United States, according to CDC. In Europe, a similar situation is expected. The cost of medical care connected to infectious diseases caused by resistant microbes is estimated to be 7 billion Euros. With no action, antibiotic resistance will develop into one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development (WHO). The fast detectio...

Major public health concerns associated with the diagnosis of prostate cancer are over-diagnosis and over-treatment. The current diagnosis of prostate cancer involves a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) guided biopsy of the prostate gland to rule out any malignancy (presence of a malignant tumor). The need for a TRUS biopsy is determined by a suspicious digital rectal examination and an increased serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) which is the most widely used biomarker. However, this current met...

The current trend of using Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) as a standard procedure to provide a prognostic scale for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has become limited since patients are usually under the influence of sedatives to keep them calm. Assessing GCS by the time they arrive at the trauma unit will not be indicative of the actual conscious state. There are also possibilities of missing TBI as patients can appear to be normal with full GCS scores while neuroimaging tests such as CT or MRI scans ma...
