Brain-machine interfaces treat neurological disease

Brain-machine interfaces treat neurological disease
Since the 19th century at least, humans have wondered what could be accomplished by linking our brains – smart and flexible but prone to disease and disarray – directly to technology in all its cold, hard precision. Writers of the time dreamed up intelligence enhanced by implanted clockwork and a starship controlled by a transplanted brain. While these remain inconceivably far-fetched, the melding of brains and machines for treating disease and improving human health is now a reality.

DRG system helps patients battling complex regional pain syndrome

DRG system helps patients battling complex regional pain syndrome
Abbott has announced the U.S. launch of the company's Proclaim DRG Neurostimulator System, a new device designed to deliver stimulation to the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and alleviate pain in patients suffering from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) of the lower limbs. With the Proclaim DRG system, Abbott has added new, patient-centric benefits to a device capable of delivering the company's sustained and superior pain relief for patients battling CRPS.

Reengineered immune system cells could help fight HIV

Reengineered immune system cells could help fight HIV
Improving on a previous attempt, scientists have developed a new strategy that could potentially be used to reengineer a patient's own immune system cells to fight HIV. The approach, described in PLOS Pathogens, shows benefit in human cell cultures and in mice. White blood cells known as T cells play an important role in the immune system's response to HIV infection, especially if a patient stops taking antiretroviral medications that normally keep the disease under control.

Discovering therapeutic protein inhibitors for Chagas disease

Discovering therapeutic protein inhibitors for Chagas disease
  Scientists at Tokyo Tech, Nagasaki University have identified four potential protein inhibitors and unlocked drug discovery strategies for the treatment of Chagas disease by using advanced 3D computer simulation by supercomputer TSUBAME in combination with in vitro experiments and X-ray crystallography.

AI and aerospace models help optimise blood flow in veins

AI and aerospace models help optimise blood flow in veins
In a move that may ultimately improve dialysis for patients, artificial intelligence (AI) has been trained to use aerospace simulation software to design a device. The team from Imperial College London and their colleagues have used computer modelling techniques - normally employed to simulate how unsteady air pockets flow over a plane - to model how unsteady currents in blood flows in the veins of patients undergoing dialysis.

Compound causes cancer sells to commit suicide

Compound causes cancer sells to commit suicide
The first compound that directly makes cancer cells commit suicide while sparing healthy cells has been discovered by scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The new treatment approach, described in the attached issue of Cancer Cell, was directed against acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells but may also have potential for attacking other types of cancers.

Nanopatch is highly effective against polio virus

Nanopatch is highly effective against polio virus
Efforts to rid the world of polio have taken another significant step, thanks to research led by University of Queensland bioscience experts and funding from the World Health Organisation (WHO). A fresh study of the Nanopatch – a microscopic vaccine delivery platform first developed by UQ researchers - has shown the device more effectively combats poliovirus than needles and syringes.

Method could lead to improved cancer treatments

Method could lead to improved cancer treatments
UCLA biophysicists have developed a new method to rapidly determine a single cell’s stiffness and size — which could ultimately lead to improved treatments for cancer and other diseases. The method allows researchers to make standardised measurements of single cells, determine each cell’s stiffness and assign it a number, generally between 10 and 20,000, in a unit of measurement called pascals. Pascals can be used to quantify any material from a cell to rubber, wood, titanium and diamond.

Elastic glue seals wounds in 60 seconds

Elastic glue seals wounds in 60 seconds
  Biomedical engineers from the University of Sydney and the United States collaborated on the development of the potentially life-saving surgical glue, called MeTro. MeTro’s high elasticity makes it ideal for sealing wounds in body tissues that continually expand and relax – such as lungs, hearts and arteries – that are otherwise at risk of re-opening.

Smart bandage could promote faster healing

Smart bandage could promote faster healing
Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Harvard Medical School and MIT have designed a smart bandage that could eventually heal chronic wounds or battlefield injuries with every fibre of its being. The bandage consists of electrically conductive fibres coated in a gel that can be individually loaded with infection-fighting antibiotics, tissue-regenerating growth factors, painkillers or other medications.
