Researchers at the university's Cancer Research UK Institute for Cancer Studies worked with a team of specialists in Paris in devising a test which examines more than 100 blood proteins
The ground squirrels have evolved blood proteins
that partially neutralize rattlesnake venom, so an adult usually doesn't die from a bite.
suggesting early artery damage might also be early warning signs of diabetes, researchers say.
Because only a few hundred soluble blood proteins

The company announced Wednesday that the chemical analysis software would now be able to predict the percent of plasma protein binding - which reveals how much of a drug bonds to blood proteins
- and volume of distribution - which shows how widely a drug will spread throughout the body.
