    Salivary Biomarkers Highlight Metabolic Disease Risk in Children

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 11, 2014 -- Scientists have announced results from a large-scale study that uses saliva as a tool for identifying children who are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. This team of investigators found significantly altered levels of salivary biomarkers in obese children.  By testing this non-invasive approach to the study of metabolic diseases, the researchers hope to develop simplified screening procedures to identify people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

    Forsyth Scientists Gain New Understanding of Latent Tuberculosis

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 30 -- Scientists at the Forsyth have gained new insight on how Tuberculosis (TB) remains a global epidemic.  Although drugs have been available to fight TB for 50 years, the disease still infects nearly 2.2 billion people worldwide and causes 1.7 million annual deaths. This is largely attributed to the bacteria’s ability to stay dormant in the human body and later resurface as active disease.
