Web-based technology improves paediatric ADHD care

As cases of ADHD continue to rise among U.S. children, pediatricians at busy community practices are getting a much-needed assist from a web-based technology to improve the quality of ADHD care and patient outcomes. According to a multi-institutional study published online in Pediatrics, a web-based software program is helping reduce ADHD behavioural symptoms in children receiving care at community paediatric practices by coordinating care and ensuring patients get the most effective ADHD medications.

Painless microneedle system could monitor drugs

Painless microneedle system could monitor drugs
Researchers at the University of British Columbia and the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) in Switzerland have created a microneedle drug monitoring system that could one day replace costly, invasive blood draws and improve patient comfort. The system consists of a small, thin patch that is pressed against a patient's arm during medical treatment and measures drugs in their bloodstream painlessly without drawing any blood.

3D weaving helps develop living hip replacement

3D weaving helps develop living hip replacement
Scientists have programmed stem cells to grow new cartilage on a 3D template shaped like the ball of a hip joint. What's more, using gene therapy, they have activated the new cartilage to release anti-inflammatory molecules to fend off a return of arthritis. The technique, demonstrated in a collaborative effort between Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Cytex Therapeutics Inc. in Durham, N.C., is described in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Imaging technique focus on breast cancer treatment

Cancer Research UK scientists have used imaging techniques as a way to identify patients who could benefit from certain breast cancer treatments, according to a study published in Oncotarget. The team at King's College London, in collaboration with scientists at the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology, used fluorescence lifetime imaging to confirm if they have joined together.

Bio-based mesh can aid hernia treatment

Bio-based mesh can aid hernia treatment
A novel bio-based scaffold promises significantly better clinical performance in hernia operations. Mesh repair of hernias is now standard in most countries. Typically, a non-degradable polymeric mesh is placed at the site of organ protrusion to act as a scaffold for reinforcing tissue growth. However, customarily used non-degradable polymers are often associated with a high rate of foreign body reaction and hernia recurrence. In addition, current processing methods employ technologies that are associated with environmental risks.

Procedure allows long-term culturing of adult stem cells

A procedure developed at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) may revolutionise the culturing of adult stem cells. In their report that has been published online prior to its appearance in Cell Stem Cell, the team describes generating and expanding airway stem cells from the sorts of tissue samples collected during routine treatment of lung disorders. The overall approach appears applicable to several other tissue types, including skin and the linings of the gastrointestinal and reproductive tracts.

Microfluidic technology assists infertile couples

Microfluidic technology assists infertile couples
Of the millions of sperm that enter the vagina, only about 10 or so make it to the oocyte or egg, demonstrating how rigorous the natural sperm selection process really is. So how is it possible to select only the best sperm for assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilisation? That's what a researcher at Florida Atlantic University is aiming to do with his microfluidic technology for reproductive medicine.
