Professor James, the lead researcher said, “These gloves will be a game-changer for the healthcare industry, both public and private. I am delighted that my lifetime’s research into bacteria and antibiotic resistance has directly informed the science behind a practical tool that will have a major impact on medical care in the future.”
Updated clinical data on its T-cell therapies has been presented by Adaptimmune. The GlaxoSmithKline-partnered NY-ESO SPEAR T-cells have been linked by the latest readouts to a 50% partial response rate in heavily pretreated cancer patients and have led to the positioning of Adaptimmune for dialing up of dosing of two wholly owned assets.
The New York-based startup is aiming to digitize the equipment and to make the process easier through the ePrescribing platform. That way, the hospital doesn't spend time on faxing to communicate the order, and the patients and healthcare suppliers can get it quicker than they might have otherwise.
Three of the company’s prototype genome-sequencing assays were evaluated using samples from lung cancer patients. Early support for the concept was demonstrated with detection rates ranging from 38% to 51% in participants in participants with early-stage lung cancer at 98% specificity.
Today the FDA will officially exempt individual genetic risk tests from 501(k) premarket approval with the condition that the company offering the test should have a one-time premarket review of its testing apparatus and at least one test.
No specific cause has been identified yet. It could be poor ventilation, smoking, pollution and chemical contaminants such as paint, varnish, adhesives etc. Stress is also thought to be a leading cause of sick building syndrome. Usually, women are more susceptible to the condition than men.
In the cases of severely injured patients with excessive bleeding, the need of the hour would be a blood transfusion. But if older stored blood were to be used, it could lead to life-threatening symptoms such as pneumonia, dysfunction in blood flow, and an increased inflammation in organs. The research team found a link between older stored blood transfusion and subsequent bacterial pneumonia.
A study conducted in ten hospitals found that NIPT (Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening Test), was safer, more accurate and more effective in detecting chromosomal abnormalities in unborns, compared to conventional marker tests and ultrasound studies.
With dyslexic patients, the light receptor cells (rods and cones) were arranged in matching forms in the center of each eye. In non-dyslexic patients, the receptor cells do not match, leading to a single image. The matching cells confuse the brain, by forming a mirror image in the opposite hemisphere. A slight delay between the brain producing a primary image and the other hemisphere’s mirror image was noticed.
