Johns Hopkins researchers have developed an implant for the application of drugs directly to the sinuses. The device consists of a catheter that allows drugs to reach previously inaccessible surfaces. It is easily implanted in the nasal cavity after surgery or during an office visit. The device also features a novel magnetic fixture to connect the drug injectors. This feature creates a reliable seal for efficient medication passage. The unique construction prevents inflammation from blocking delivery to areas that need treatment the most.
Johns Hopkins researchers have developed PapGene test, a new screening method for endometrial and ovarian cancers. This diagnostic test is easily incorporated into a routine pelvic examination. The invention uses a sequence-based method to query 12 mutations in a single liquid Pap smear. Additionally, this method does not require prior knowledge of the tumors genotype. This diagnostic test provides and inexpensive and accurate means of diagnosing ovarian and endometrial cancers.
