Research on Digital Health, Alzheimer's, Ebola Draws Nearly 20,000 Attendees to 2014 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo
Date:7/31/2014

harmful medical treatment. On Wednesday, Jeffrey Friedman, MD, PhD—who discovered the hormone leptin—presented his research on the role leptin plays in obesity and why it is important to approach obesity as a medical issue instead of a problem driven by environmental factors or a lack of willpower. And in today's closing keynote, Amrita Cheema, PhD, one of the co-developers of an early blood test for Alzheimer's disease, expanded upon her groundbreaking research and why it could be the key to developing treatments to halt or slow Alzheimer's. 

Additionally, abstracts presented at the meeting spotlighted timely discoveries in the field of laboratory medicine, including research on a portable blood test that can detect low levels of Ebola—and the closely related Sudan virus—in 10 minutes. The test uses the same technology found in home pregnancy tests, which enables it to be performed in the resource-limited settings most prone to Ebola outbreaks and by individuals without extensive medical training. By enabling healthcare workers to identify, isolate, and treat Ebola patients as quickly as possible, this test could play an integral role in preventing future Ebola outbreaks from reaching the magnitude of the outbreak that West Africa is currently battling.

The 2014 AACC Clinical Lab Expo, with more than 650 exhibitors filling the McCormick Place show floor, featured breakthrough innovations in clinical testing, including numerous examples of the lab-on-a-chip technology discussed by Dr. Topol in his keynote, the first ever human papillomavirus DNA test approved by the Food and Drug Administration for primary cervical cancer screening, and the newest tests in reproductive health, infectious diseases, drug testing, and much more.
