Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer … from a teenager
Over 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than two percent chance of survival. How could this be? Jack Andraka talks about how he developed a promising early detection test for pancreatic cancer that’s super cheap, effective and non-invasive — all before his 16th birthday.
The cerebral vasculature is a complex network that allows only 18% of the total blood volume of the body through the delicate tissues of the brain. This allows the transport of oxygen and nutrients that are essential to brain function. In the wide field, plane-projection confocal image above, the superficial cerebral vasculature of a mouse - specifically the actin, α-N-acetylgalactosamine residues, and DNA in cell nuclei - are labeled in situ.

Chronic pancreatitis can lead to permanent structural damage of the parenchyma, leading to impaired exocrine and endocrine function. Over time, the pancreas can begin to develop progressive patchy fibrosis that can eventually progress to calcification as seen in the bright white spots on the CT scan.
