Berzelii researcher invited to the AAAS Annual Meeting

Uppsala Berzelii Centre will be represented at the AAAS Annual Meeting.

The AAAS Annual Meeting gathers thousands of leading scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers, and science journalists for discussions about recent developments in science and technology. Next year Uppsala’s research on chronic pain will be highlighted in a separate symposium.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to “advancing science for the benefit of all people”. The organization publishes three respected peer-reviewed journals, Science, Science Signaling and Science Translational Medicine.

But at the Annual Meeting the audience and focus is a little different. Policymakers attend to learn more about the latest research and journalists from all over the world are looking for the best and latest science news, making it the perfect arena for reaching these groups.

The meeting has a peer review process, where research quality, as well as “news value” is evaluated. It is now confirmed that the Uppsala University symposium “Chronic Pain – An Invisible Disease? Not anymore.” with Professor Torsten Gordh has been accepted for the next Annual Meeting in San Jose on the theme “Innovations, Information, and Imaging”.

The symposium will address the wide-spread condition of chronic pain and the fact that pain is still measured using subjective self-reporting. The symposium will provide new ways of understanding chronic pain, and show the possibilities in developing new diagnostic tools in the evaluation of chronic pain patients.

Torsten Gordh will present imaging studies using PET-CT-scanning that reveal specific patterns of peripheral muscle tissue uptake in sites corresponding to the pain experienced by the patients. He will be joined by Clas Linnman at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School (previously Uppsala University) and Teshamae Monteith, University of Miami, who will address other aspects of chronic pain and imaging.

Using golden DNA strands in biosensors

Scientists at Uppsala Berzelii Centre for Neurodiagnostics and Science for Life Laboratory have developed a brand new concept for super sensitive diagnostics of different diseases.

In the upcoming issue of ACS Nano they present an electrical sensor that uses rolling circle amplification (RCA) of DNA to stretch across the gap between two electrodes, interact with metal nanoparticle seeds to generate an electrically conductive nanowire, and produce electrical signals upon detection of specific target DNA sequences.

Camilla Russell, PhD student at Uppsala Berzelii Centre for Neurodiagnostics at Uppsala University and the researcher who has carried out the work, sees great potential in the ‘golden strand’ method:

“It should be possible to build very simple test kits using this method, and one test kit can contain many separate sensors to trace a large number of different DNA molecules”, she says.

Visualization of chronic pain

In a recent publication in the well known journal of PLos ONE, researchers from Uppsala University Hospital present a diagnostic tool to objectively visualize pain.

This study visualize inflammatory processes in the neck region after Whiplash Associated Disorder grade II, by means Positron Emission Tomography using the tracer 11C-D-deprenyl, a potential marker for inflammation.

- Patients with chronic neck pain after whiplash are often met with disbelief because nothing abnormal is showing in x-ray or MRI examinations. We can now show that it is possible to obtain objective visual evidence that the pain actually occurs in the neck, says Professor Torsten Gordh, head of the Pain Center at the University hospital.

New findings from Berzelii researchers

Researchers from Uppsala University have discovered a new marker that gives hope for more reliable diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Uppsala Berzelii Centre researchers Masood Kamali-Moghaddam and Ulf Landegren have developed a new blood test which hopefully may provide more reliable diagnosis of prostate cancer.
- Our study is limited, but if we can show equally good results in large studies, we believe that our test can replace or supplement the PSA, says Masood Kamali-Moghaddam, whose study is recently published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, PNAS .

Groundbreaking news on human CSF proteins

For the first time, researchers from Sweden and the US have succeeded in identifying the majority of the detectable proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of healthy human beings. The advance is expected to provide a valuable tool for diagnosis and research into diseases of the nervous system. The study is being published today in the well-respected journal PLoS ONE.

Mapping the mix of 2,630 identified proteins in the CSF of healthy human beings may represent a turning point for research in neurological diseases. Until now, the lack of a clear picture of normal CSF made it impossible to fully assess how the fluid is affected by different disease conditions.

“Obtaining this tool represents a very important step,” says Jonas Bergquist, professor of analytic chemistry and neurochemistry at Uppsala University in Sweden and a researcher at the Uppsala Berzelii Technology Centre for Neurodiagnostics.“Our findings could serve as a representation of the normal case in connection with research into Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and many other diseases.”

Cross-disciplinary research on nerve system at Uppsala

Dementia and chronic pain are two pathological conditions that are on the rise in society, which increases the need for better diagnosis and treatment. Within the framework of the Uppsala Berzelli Center, which has been in existence since 2007, both clinical and basic research in the field has made great forward strides. On June 8 there will be an open seminar on the present state of research and the future.


What is happening on the research front in the fields of pain and Alzheimer’s disease? What commitments are being made by society and companies in these fields in the near future? On June 8, research leaders, ministry representatives, and business people will gather for an open seminar about the two tremendously exciting research fields. Researchers will give a progress report on their work, senior administrative officers Maria Wästfelt and Lotta Liljelund from the ministry of education and research will speak about health-care initiatives, and representatives from AstraZeneca and GE Healthcare will present what the business community can contribute.

Apace with advances in our knowledge of the genetics and molecular processes behind various pain conditions and dementia disorders, new opportunities are opening up for diagnosis and treatment. The encounter with patients at the clinic also often leads to questions for which there has been no technology in place to provide the answer. This is where the Uppsala Berzelii Center comes in. Torsten Gordh, a pain researcher at Uppsala University and chief physician at the Pain Clinic, Uppsala University Hospital, says the center is a fantastic resource.

“Through collaboration between basic researchers and companies we have gained access to entirely new methods involving biomarkers that can be used on biobank materials from well-characterized pain patients. This is something completely new and has led to a great deal of new knowledge that can benefit patients,” he says.

Both Alzheimer’s and pain research at Uppsala University is of top international quality, and University Hospital is clinically prominent. The areas are also interesting to Uppsala’s life-science companies. At Uppsala Berzelli Center there is now very active collaboration between these parties, firmly anchored in clinical needs and in the University’s advanced competence in chemistry and molecular method development. The goal is to pilot ideas from basic research to commercial products for clinical use.

“With access to patient materials, the robust development of technology, and the expertise of companies, we are uniquely positioned to succeed,” says Fredrik Nikolajeff, director of the Uppsala Berzelii Center.

Nytt Centre för Neurodiagnostik i Uppsala

Känsligare analysmetoder som kan avslöja sjukdomar som Alzheimer och Parkinson i ett tidigt skede. Det är ett av målen för det nystartade Uppsala Berzelii Technology Center for Neurodiagnostics. Centret ska också öka våra kunskaper om kronisk smärta.

Fredrik Nikolajeff vill gärna se forskningsresultat omsättas i praktiken. Som när rymdbolaget ESA hörde av sig efter att han och en kollega publicerat nya rön om hur konstgjorda diamantytor kan mikrostruktureras.

- ESA frågade om vi kunde tillverka skräddarsydda optiska mikrostrukturer i diamantfönster för framtidens satelliter. Detta ledde till att vi startade ett företag runt vår teknik. Han ser händelsen som ett exempel på fördelarna med att göra något unikt.

- Då hör andra av sig och vill börja samarbeta säger Fredrik Nikolajeff, som menar att Sverige som forskningsnation bör ha samma strategi. Att följa strömmen och ligga i forskningens huvudfåra gör det allt svårare att konkurrera när låglöneländer som t ex Kina satsar stort.
