Real-Time Liquid Biopsy Cancer Diagnosis and Monitoring

University Health Network

Non-invasive liquid biopsy to diagnose specific cancer subtypes using genome-wide DNA methylation and transcription factor profiles DNA methylation profiles are highly cell-type specific and are disrupted in many diseases, including cancer. Here we introduce Cell-Free Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation and High-throughput Sequencing (cfMeDIP-seq), a robust picogram - nanogram input method suitable for genome-wide methylome analysis of cell-free DNA (cfDNA). Current detection methods from...

The scale features both self-reported and clinician-rated versions that would be sensitive to small changes in insight over brief periods of time. Additionally, the scale would be able to assess the multidimensionality of insight. A 10 item self-report (VAGUS-SR) and a 5 item clinician-rated version (VAGUS-CR) of the scale were designed, based on previously validated scales, to measure the dimensions of insight...

Glucose Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (GAS)

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in diabetes, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to diabetes that are...
