Scientists Just Created Artificial Red Blood Cells That May Be Even Better Than The Real Thing – ScienceAlert

§ June 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Scientists Just Created Artificial Red Blood Cells That May Be Even Better Than The Real Thing – ScienceAlert

Thanks to rapid advances in technology, prosthetic limbs and artificial organs are pushing past the limits of what nature provides us. It's now blood's turn for a boost, with researchers finding a new way to mimic the tissue that carries oxygen.

By combining biological material with lab-grown polymers, an international team of bioengineers has developed what could be thought of as a Terminator red cell - one more than capable of matching the talents of what's already in our veins.

Not only can this microscopic cyborg squeeze through the nooks and crannies of a vascular system with its usual haemoglobin, it can be modified to deliver tumour-killing medications, carry biosensors, and even be studded with tiny magnets for the ultimate in remote guidance.

If you're going to attempt to reconfigure any cell in the human body, you really can't go past the red blood cell (RBC). One of the few cells that lack a nucleus, the red cell has a relative simplicity that makes it an attractive target for engineers to build upon.

What's more, our dependence on huge amounts of clean, freshly donated products to replace blood lost through trauma puts a high demand on finding a suitable substitute.

Hence, there are several synthetic RBCs already in development. Many rely on scavenging key materials such as haemoglobin from human or animal donors and repackaging them into benign particles that are unlikely to trigger an immune response.

Some of the avenues being explored are a little more adventurous, going as far as creating sound-powered particles that can carry toxic species of highly reactive oxygen through the vascular system to assassinate cancerous tissues.

"Inspired by the above pioneering studies wherein synthetic constructs were created that achieved one or several key features of native RBCs, we endeavoured to create a modular rebuilt RBC (RRBC) mimic that possessed the complete combined features of native RBCs," the researchers write in their report.

That means their bionic mimics had to be an appropriate size, shape, and flexibility to make it through the body's narrowest vessels; remain intact long enough to be useful; and still carry a suitable amount of oxygen.

Taking it even further, the team figured they'd make their tiny units modular, allowing them to swap in and out various features that helped the cells carry drugs or hone in on a destination.

To achieve their goal, they started by coating donated blood cells in a layer of silica, which was then painted with polymers of different charges.

Once the silica and cell guts were scraped away, the remaining polymer membrane could itself be covered in a skin made from red blood cells.

The result is an empty biconcave shell that can be packed with whatever biochemical machinery your heart desires, while still passing for a garden variety, oxygen-hauling red blood cell.

A battery of tests using lab equipment and animals showed the bionic blood cells lived up to expectations. Four weeks after being injected into mice, there were no signs of adverse effects, boding well for the safety of these synthetic cells.

Clearly there's a long way to go before we'll see any therapies based on artificial blood cells. Not only will we need plenty of testing to check if any cargo they carry can be released, the whole manufacturing process needs to be shown to be scalable.

But with so much research focussed on building a better blood cell, there's little doubt we'll be seeing more in this field soon.

Turning our body's own cells into tiny murderous robots to attack wayward tissues and infections seems to be a popular strategy for bioengineers. Time will tell if it's a winning formula.

Be assured, we'll be back if it is.

Why science should revolutionize the world of politics – EL PAS in English

§ June 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Why science should revolutionize the world of politics – EL PAS in English

There is no need to point out that this crisis could have been avoided, or at least its impact on public health and the economy reduced if only the technical know-how of scientists, doctors, public health experts, epidemiologists, social scientists, plus data from mathematical prediction models, had been applied in time. In countries where this happened, there is a clear correlation between prompt decision-making based on expert knowledge and the positive outcomes for both the population and the economy.

The lack of scientific-medical knowledge is particularly apparent based on the large amount of information in the public domain that is devoid of a basic level of precision and truth. The widespread use of social networks has frequently led to lowering the bar on the quality of information and data that the population receives. And it is hard for citizens and their public representatives to make the right decisions when the information available is neither precise, rigorous or even true.

Although we have dedicated our lives to the optimistic advance of science and technology, we are concerned about the future. We believe there will be challenges ahead to match the coronavirus not only in the realm of global pandemics or drug-resistant infectious diseases, but also regarding issues such as climate change and the incorporation of artificial intelligence, neurotechnology and biotechnology into society.

The urgent need for science goes beyond this crisis. Were talking about science in a broad sense, encompassing medicine and engineering. After all, medicine is the science of the human body and engineering applies scientific discoveries to the world we live in. So now is the time to bring science and scientific thinking into the corridors of power, just as legal and economic thinking was brought in over the past decades to lay the intellectual foundation of our modern political economy. As a measure of how far we have yet to go, consider the fact that more than half of the 535 members of the US Congress are lawyers while 17 are doctors and only three are scientists.

Rather than recruiting scientists as political leaders, we must inject scientific thinking into both new and existing institutions. Fundamental conceptual errors in economic thinking caused indescribable suffering to billions last century. Whether it is fighting pandemics or global climate change, scientific thinking and the speed with which power and scientific resources for science are mobilized will determine the wellbeing and prosperity of billions of people around the world.

But how do we incorporate scientists and scientific thinking into societys governance and decision-making? We believe that now is the time to institutionalize the role of science in the organs of the state. Our proposal suggests several potential courses of action. First, there is the need to strengthen the role of science in countries governments. As has become obvious during this crisis, the economy depends on us first tackling the most fundamental of societys problems, such as health and climate change.

Just as it is standard practice to have a deputy prime minister for the economy within a government, we think there should also be a deputy prime minister for science who carries the same weight. The person in in this role would have a professional scientific and medical background and could coordinate aspects of health, technology, development and education.

In addition to a deputy prime minister for science, which as far as we know does not exist anywhere in the world, we think that scientific advisory councils should be more rigorously and formally institutionalized as fundamental entities within any government. These advisory councils could be either national or international. An example would be the creation of International Scientific Reserves, a scientific advisory council that operates on a global level.

Besides the actual government, political parties operating in parliamentary democracies should also be seeking to strengthen the role of science in their internal discourse and decision-making. The opposition should have the equivalent of a scientific spokesmen and a scientific advisory council. By incorporating these professionals into their ranks, governments and political parties could concentrate on issues of genuine importance, reducing the shortsightedness that unfortunately dominates the political discourse in so many countries.

Besides including scientific roles within governments, we believe it is essential to strengthen the role of science within legislative bodies. All parliaments should have an official scientific advisory body, just as every parliament has a legal counsel. There are many issues and there will be many more that are technically difficult to understand if you do not have a basic scientific background. Parliamentarians should have first-hand information on all issues with a significant social impact as they represent the public and have an obligation to represent them in an informed manner.

It would be equally appropriate to incorporate technical knowledge into the judiciary. Judges who interpret laws to decide on real-life cases need to have first-hand scientific information. In fact, it would be appropriate for the highest judicial bodies to have advisory councils.

Finally, the media should also have professionals to hand with a scientific background to ensure that the information they distribute is based on reliable data and statistics. The press is a common good and has a huge responsibility when it comes to influencing public opinion and warning the public in crises such as the one we are experiencing. Unfortunately, during this pandemic, we have often seen alarmist medical information on the front pages of some of the worlds most popular newspapers that does not correspond to reliable data. This lack of accuracy is harmful as it undermines societys confidence in its own ability to face the future. Many newspapers do have professionals with a scientific background they can consult, but the existence of scientific advisory boards is not a common or institutionalized occurrence.

To conclude these recommendations, we believe, along with many others, that it is more important than ever to strengthen the connection between science and society through education. This can be achieved by placing greater emphasis on science in schools and popularizing science for adults. We should encourage scientific careers and create a strong institutional system to deal with potential crises, so that scientific activity is maintained and generates the solutions that society needs.

Scientific methodology and thinking are among mankinds greatest achievements and are tools that can help us to overcome the challenges of the future. We have magnificent professionals experts in health, infectious diseases, climate, artificial intelligence, neurobiology and biotechnology. Let us take advantage of their knowledge and training to lead society into the future intelligently; let us incorporate them at all levels. They would be delighted since scientists are working for humanity and the future of all of us. Let us make use of them. It is urgent.

Lets have a look at some of the most important institutions in the United States: the Social Security Administration, National Laboratories, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), NASA and the National Security Department, all of which have their origins in the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Cold War and 9/11.

Crises have always been catalysts for institutional renewal and reinvention, and the coronavirus pandemic will be no exception. Even now, when all we can see is tragedy and emergency, the coalitions that are forming and the solutions that are emerging will lay the foundation for the institutions of the future.

The creation of the largest public-private supercomputing partnership in history in the US is a prime example. The Covid-19 Supercomputing Consortium has brought together voluntary elements from government, universities and the private sector to speed up the process of discovering new treatments and vaccines against coronavirus with the help of supercomputers. The Department of Energy is at the helm along with IBM, a private institution. Other technology giants, usually considered rivals, are contributing skills, from Amazon and Microsoft to Google. NASA and the NSF have also signed up, as have seven national laboratories, including the historic Los Alamos, Oak Ridge and Sandia, not to mention more than 10 universities, from MIT to the University of Texas and the University of California. Researchers from around the world can access the supercomputers for free, and the international dimension will grow as supercomputing centers in England and Switzerland are incorporated.

This consortium was conceived and launched in just five days, without a single contract, and is a true reflection of the catalytic power of an unprecedented crisis. It should be evident that a global pandemic the microscopic equivalent of an alien invasion requires unity and cooperation. The virus does not distinguish between institutions, passports, identity or political persuasion. Within nation states, we are seeing numerous examples of mobilization, but it is also clear that international unity and global coordination has not been part of the picture.

The need to transcend the horrors of war coupled with the desire for economic prosperity drove earlier examples of regional and global cooperation; they led to the creation of the United Nations and the NATO alliance, along with the emergence of the European Union, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Together with Avi Loeb, head of Harvard Universitys Department of Astronomy, we believe that now is the time to create a new body the International Scientific Reserves, composed of scientists and organizations with voluntary participation. These reserves would bring together the best of the public and private sectors, recognizing that the scientific capacity of any member state is distributed between government organizations, academia, foundations and the private sector. The objective would be to provide free advice to all institutions across the world to prevent future crises, mobilize human or technical resources and facilitate coordinated action. The reservists, an army of volunteers from scientific, technological and medical institutions, with experts in all areas, would donate their time and skill and would be ready to act when needed.

Crises and emergencies require alternative mechanisms for leadership, funding and coordination between institutions. By preparing ahead, Scientific Reserves would be ready to mobilize adequate resources in emergencies, just as military reserve forces prepare in peacetime and mobilize in times of crisis. The international dimension is also crucial, as researchers from a variety of disciplines, institutions and countries would be able to detect, prepare for and respond to threats, sharing real-time information and providing a global coordination mechanism.

It is now clear that adequate scientific preparation for natural disasters is key to saving millions of lives and billions of euros in the global economy. We need to find a better way to harness the power of science to keep our world safe. Science will not only help us defeat the deadly coronavirus, but will also be critical in addressing other major threats such as climate change and antibiotic resistance. If ever mankind needed a wake-up call to recognize the value of scientific readiness and collaboration, it is surely this pandemic. Science is vital to our future prosperity and health; it always has been and always will be.

Germ-fighting ‘dry fog’ system used in prisons could also be used in schools and airports – Honolulu Star-Advertiser

§ June 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Germ-fighting ‘dry fog’ system used in prisons could also be used in schools and airports – Honolulu Star-Advertiser

A new disinfecting system that promises to kill everything from mold to the new coronavirus for at least 90 days is being applied in state prisons and has the potential for use in schools, airports and other buildings to help open Hawaiis economy, state prison officials say.

Were here to help use our resources to reopen the state of Hawaii with our inmate labor, said Jonah Kaauwai, division administrator for the state Department of Public Safetys nonprofit Hawaii Correctional Industries. Sanitation is one part of having a safe return. Them (inmates) sitting around doesnt do anybody any good.

Soon after the coronavirus pandemic began shutting down the global economy, Kaauwai saw a local news report about Hawaii Unified (Hui Restoration) disinfecting his friends church, Inspire Church, in Waikele.

The Department of Public Safety has since entered into a 12-month memorandum of understanding with Hawaii Unified with no specified dollar amount to provide equipment, chemicals and training for Hawaii prisoners to dry fog some of the most well-used areas of the states eight prisons.

Parts of Halawa Correctional Facility, Oahu Community Correctional Center and Maui Community Correctional Center including holding cells but not yet prisoners cells already have been treated in the two-step, two-hour-long process.

High-traffic areas of Hawaii Community Correctional Center and Kulani Correctional Facility on Hawaii island are scheduled for dry-fog treatment on Thursday, followed by parts of the remaining state prisons by the end of the month.

COVID-19 has not been detected inside the states prison system, DPS spokeswoman Toni Schwartz said. The department continues to urge proper hygiene and the use of face masks among both inmates and staff, Schwartz said.

The dry-fog process is designed to kill all manner of germs, including the new coronavirus, and keep mold and other unwanted bacteria, viruses and germs out of prison air-conditioning systems.

Hawaii Unified holds the proprietary rights for a patented dry-fog sanitation system that creates an anti- microbial barrier that kills pathogens, including COVID-19, for up to 90 days, according to DPS. The treatment has been approved by both the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration, according to the department.

There is nothing in comparison, Kaauwai said. We call it the medicine. We feel very comfortable making the claim that we are sterilizing the areas. The most common comment is that it smells like a hospital its so fresh.

In a statement, Ryno Irwin, CEO of Hawaii Unified Industries, said, The fog application settles on surfaces, and its like a microscopic bed of spikes. If any cells, viruses, mold or bacteria lands on those surfaces, it will pop the cell, killing it on contact. This is an approved process, is completely nontoxic and is safe for people and animals.

Kaauwai said he hopes that some state prisoners nearing release can be trained in using the dry-fog technology and be certified by the National Institute of Dry Fog Technology. Along the way, they would acquire other skills such as mold inspection and removal, water damage repair and microbial restoration, he said.

Schwartz emphasized that any wages earned by prisoners while theyre applying the dry-fog technology would go toward victim restoration and court costs.

§ June 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Medical Radiation Shielding Market Revenue, Growth Opportunities and Dynamic Business by 2025 – Medic Insider

Global Medical Radiation Shielding Market: Snapshot

The International Atomic Energy Agency describes the process of radiation protection or radiation shielding as the protection of humans from the negative impact they may receive when exposed to harmful values of ionizing radiation. For the sake of simplicity, most radiation shielding refers to the protection of human beings alone, as most technology that involves ionizing radiation refers to human contact. Ionizing radiation finds a growing scope of applications in the medical fields, due to which there is a very high chance of people suffering from radiation poisoning. It holds a strong potency of permanently damaging human tissues by affecting them at a microscopic level. The more common signs of exposure to ionizing radiation include radiation sickness, skin burns, and increased chances of cancer. The level of radiation exposure and the time duration of exposure can determine the signs of sickness that a patient may show.

Biomedical Engineering professor and team develop treatment for traumatic brain injury – News at Louisiana Tech

§ June 3rd, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Biomedical Engineering professor and team develop treatment for traumatic brain injury – News at Louisiana Tech

Dr. Teresa Murray, associate professor in Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Sciences at Louisiana Tech University, is collaborating with former Louisiana Tech doctoral student Dr. Chelsea Pernici and professors at the University of Arizona to help develop solutions to traumatic brain injury.

Murray and Pernici are working with Dr. Jonathan Lifshitz and Dr. Rachel Rowe, director and research assistant professor, respectively, with the Translational Neurotrauma Research Program at the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix, to develop a treatment that could prevent memory and emotional problems in patients suffering from axonal injury caused by traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

The study was led by Murray and Pernici who used a new imaging technology to show how diseases and injuries affect the brain over time and how medicines could reduce brain damage. This novel imaging was created in Murrays lab. Through this technology, the group of researchers were able to repeatedly image the same axons in the brain before and after brain injury, providing proof of TBI-related axonal pathology.

Using a novel combination of high-resolution imaging and a GRIN lens implanted in the brain of mice, the team documented axonal injury and the recovery process after a blunt injury to the brain. GRIN lenses are microscopic glass lenses that allow scientists to focus closely on the cells for good image quality. These lenses are smaller than Lincolns nose on a U.S. penny and were adopted by a handful of biologists to better study the brain.

Murray developed an improved GRIN lens system to see more details of brain cells. Her team also designed 3D-printed hardware to help them find the exact same cells for each imaging session. Her improved GRIN lenses allowed the team to find and evaluate the same injured axons over several weeks post injury.

The fine communication elements of neurons axons are torn, ruptured and damaged, which contributes to a multitude of clinical symptoms, Lifshitz said. To date, these processes have been inferred from fixed histological sections, clinical imaging and cells in culture. No one has observed an axon prior to injury, the consequence of injury and the outcome. Here, we show that axons do sustain injury and can either recover or become truncated.

Tracking the time in which axons become affected, the team employed a clinically approved drug, minocycline, to reduce inflammation, which slowed axon injury, recovered them from injury and preserved function. The team tested the drugs effectiveness for immediate use within 45 minutes of the incident, compared to delayed use at three days post injury both time points showed positive effects. The minocycline drug treatment promoted the recovery of injured axons. With treatment, a much larger percentage of the damaged axons healed, compared to those without treatment.

Most brain injuries cause damage to just a few axons, Murray said. These few axons cant be seen on MRIs and CT scans. So, most TBI patients are sent home with the hope that they will get better over time. However, even a few damaged axons can disrupt communication in the brain and affect neurological function.

The novel fluorescence imaging method using GRIN lenses allows researchers to study brain cells in both time and space, offering a unique opportunity to better understand the effect of drugs on brain structure over time, Pernici added. Its exciting to see that although axons become damaged after TBI, the injury can resolve and with this method, we have the opportunity to better understand that timescale.

The team plans to continue their research by pairing minocycline with another drug to further reduce this early damage. If successful, this treatment could lessen the chances of memory loss and emotional problems for people suffering a TBI.

This study provides hope that we can use minocycline effectively if the drug can be taken early in the process and not given long-term. This could help reduce the inflammation, and thus some of the permanent damage caused by brain injury, Murray said.

No drug currently on the market is clinically used to prevent axon injury. The results of their research were published in Scientific Reports on May 8.

Treating substance use disorder amid the pandemic – UB Now: News and views for UB faculty and staff – University at Buffalo Reporter

§ June 3rd, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Treating substance use disorder amid the pandemic – UB Now: News and views for UB faculty and staff – University at Buffalo Reporter

When Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo put out the call in March for health care workers to volunteer in New York City during the height of the pandemic, Tildabeth Doscher eagerly signed up. I said I was willing to do anything, happy to provide support in whatever way was needed.

She volunteered for three weeks, from April 12 to May 3.

Doscher is clinical assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB and director of UBs addiction medicine fellowship. That experience allowed her to bring to the pandemics epicenter in New York City a set of skills for a vulnerable population that has seen many critical, life-saving supports disappear as a result of the lockdown during the pandemic.

Even before heading to the city to volunteer, Doscher had been thinking about how to address the issue of people with substance use disorder in rehabilitation facilities who might have the virus. On March 24, she was discussing the issue on a conference call with medical directors at the states rehab facilities, including Doug Bass, medical director of Phoenix House, one of the states largest. Tragically, he passed away five days later from COVID-19.

The combination of Dougs death and the COVID 19 virus impacting staff and patients in increasing numbers left Phoenix House struggling, says Doscher. Because of Dougs death, I offered to devote my volunteer effort as interim medical director for Phoenix House.

Tildabeth Doscher was continuously struck by the stark emptiness of New York City during the lockdown. It made such a contrast with the bustling crowded city in normal times, she said. Here are some examples of what she saw and wanted to share with UBNow readers. Photos: Tildabeth Doscher

Upon arrival in New York City on April 12, Doscher was struck by the size and complexity of Phoenix House, which has more than 200 residents in programs throughout New York City and Long Island.

Even under the best circumstances, she says, working with people with substance use disorder presents many challenges. Adding the dark unknown of the virus magnified the usual challenges of providing treatment for this population, she says. The congregate setting made social distancing a near impossible task. Space and resources are limited. Staff were ill or, because of fears engendered by the virus, declining to come to work.

While she was there, some residents were put into isolation, some were admitted to the hospital and some who had been hospitalized returned to Phoenix House.

COVID-19 presented us with continual puzzle pieces in trying to manage people in a congregate setting, Doscher says. It was hard being the person that was being turned to for guidance and expertise in a situation where expertise simply does not yet exist. It was like building a plane while flying it, and not being a pilot. The official New York State and CDC guidelines were shifting sands as the understanding of the illness evolved, so the rules of the game were changing daily.

At the same time, the pervasiveness of the issues caused by COVID-19 seem to overwhelm the needs of those with other conditions. There is a concern that the opioid epidemic is losing its voice in the midst of the COVID pandemic, Doscher says. The opioid epidemic has not disappeared in fact, it seems that it may be worsening in the midst of the despair engendered by the current state of emergency.

Doscher notes that, unfortunately, overdose rates have increased since the virus outbreak. Partly this is because people are using substances alone, and there is nobody to supply Narcan or call an ambulance or get someone to the hospital, she explains.

Social-distancing restrictions are also negatively affecting patients with substance use disorder, she says. The outpatient sites she works at in Buffalo started providing patients with take-home bottles of methadone so they dont have to come to the clinic. That bothered some of them.

A good number of people want to keep coming to the clinic on a daily basis, she says. I think part of this is that the clinic has become a touchstone in their lives; it is how many patients make contact and connection with the world outside of themselves. When we take that away, we take away a sense of self, and this can be debilitating.

People with substance use disorder are often tormented by the isolation and lack of connection that is already inherent in their lives. This situation has exacerbated the sense of isolation that already brands their psyches.

On the other hand, Doscher observes that because of the pandemic, the obstacles that used to prevent the wide use of telemedicine for treating substance use disorder have begun to disappear. Typically, she says, access to treatment was limited because of a lack of providers or simply the lack of transportation.

Because the rules have not only relaxed, but telehealth is now being encouraged, many of those obstacles are being erased, she says. This opens up the possibility that treatment for substance use disorder can extend beyond the current 10% of those who now receive treatment. Increased access would be a godsend for many of those struggling with this illness.

While in New York, Doscher also began working as an attending physician in a telemedicine instant access clinic for people with opioid use disorder that was established during the pandemic at Bellevue Hospital. The goal was to offer access without barriers for people with opioid use disorder and to begin treating their illness appropriately, with the medication that has proved to be life-saving: buprenorphine.

She says many of the clinics patients were started on buprenorphine while in jail on Rikers Island. Rikers is unique in the fact that it is a Department of Corrections facility that actually provides treatment for opioid use disorder. Because of the COVID situation, people are often being discharged from Rikers more rapidly than they have been in the past.

The clinic at Bellevue provides continuity of care for opioid use disorder and connects patients to longer term follow-up substance use disorder, psychiatric and general medical care.

With the increased access that accompanies expansion of telemedicine comes increased opportunities for addiction medicine physicians that are not constrained by a geographic divide between provider and patient, says Doscher, who will continue both as the medical director at Phoenix House and as a one-day-per-week volunteer attending physician for the clinic at Bellevue.

This is all remote, part of the open door that the current crisis has provided, she says.

Now back in Buffalo, Doscher feels only gratitude that she was able to help out.

I feel incredibly fortunate that UB gave me the opportunity to experience this unfathomable moment in the epicenter of the outbreak in the United States. It was good to feel that there was some small part I could play in helping relieve the shock and confusion and illness that was engendered by this microscopic foe, especially in the context of helping to care for a patient population that I feel honored to serve.

COVID-19 Impact on Precision Medicine Market: Outlook, Growth, Key Driving Players and Industry Analysis Report 2026 – Cole of Duty

§ June 2nd, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on COVID-19 Impact on Precision Medicine Market: Outlook, Growth, Key Driving Players and Industry Analysis Report 2026 – Cole of Duty

Precision medicine (PM) is an approach to patient care that allows doctors to select treatments that are most likely to help patients based on a genetic understanding of their disease. Personalized nanomedicine involving individualized drug selection and dosage profiling in combination with clinical and molecular biomarkers can ensure the maximal efficacy and safety of the treatment. The major hindrance toward the development of such therapies is the handling of the Big Data, to keep the databases updated. Robust automated data mining tools are being developed to extract information regarding genes, variations, and their association with diseases. Phenotyping, an integral part of PM, is aimed at translating the data generated at cellular and molecular levels into clinically relevant information.Precision Medicine Moves Care from Population-Based Protocols to Truly Individualized Medicine as President of the US announced the Precision Medicine Initiative in his 2015 State of the Union address. Under the initiative, medical care would transition from a one-size-fits-all approach to an individualized approach, in which data on each patients genomic makeup, environment, and lifestyle (the exposome) helps medical professionals tailor treatment and prevention strategies. To achieve the Precision Medicine Initiative mission statement, to enable a new era of medicine through research, technology, and policies that empower patients, researchers, and providers to work together toward development of individualized care, researchers and clinicians need vast and varied amounts of data and the technology to ensure that data is widely accessible and usable.

Iron Nanorobots Go Undercover to Track Living Cells Inside the Body – SciTechDaily

§ June 1st, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Iron Nanorobots Go Undercover to Track Living Cells Inside the Body – SciTechDaily

Customizable magnetic iron nanowires pinpoint and track the movements of target cells.

Living cells inside the body could be placed under surveillancetheir location and migration noninvasively tracked in real time over many daysusing a new method developed by researchers at KAUST.

The technique uses magnetic core-shell iron nanowires as nontoxic contrast agents, which can be implanted into live cells, lighting up those cells location inside a living organism when scanned by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The technique could have applications ranging from studying and treating cancer to tracking live-cell medical treatments, such as stem cell therapies.

Jrgen Kosel and his team recently showed that core-shell iron nanowires could selectively kill cancer cells with a combination attack, delivering an anticancer drug into target cells while also puncturing the cells membrane and unleashing blasts of heat. Now, in collaboration with researchers from the CIC biomaGUNE in San Sebastian, Spain, the team has shown that the same type of iron core, iron-oxide shell nanowires, can be used for noninvasive medical imaging. The nanowires could potentially be used as theranostic agents, able to identify, track and then take out target cells.

Cell labeling and tracking has become an invaluable tool for scientific and clinical applications, says Aldo Martinez-Banderas, a Ph.D. student in Kosels team. One of the key aspects of cell tracking studies is the sensitivity to detect a small number of cells after implantation, so the strong magnetization and biocompatibility of our nanowires are advantageous characteristics for MRI tracking.

The nanowires performed well as MRI contrast agents, even at very low concentrations, and the magnetic response could be tuned by altering the thickness of the nanowire shell, the team showed. The nanowires biocompatibility permitted long-term tracking of the live cells. The nanowires interacted with cells without compromising their survival, functionality or capacity to proliferate, Martinez-Banderas explains. The labeled cells could be tracked either in cell cultures or once injected into a living animal. The strong magnetization of the nanowires enabled the detection of approximately 10 labeled cells within the brain of a mouse for a period of at least 40 days, which allowed us to trace their exact location and fate in the animal, Martinez-Banderas says.

These core-shell nanowires have various additional features, including the ability to control them magnetically to guide them to a particular location, to carry drugs, or be to heated with a laser, Kosel says. Combining all of that with the capability of tracking creates a theranostic platform that can open the door for very promising new approaches in nanomedicine.

Rejuvenated fibroblasts can recover the ability to contract – Newswise

§ June 1st, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Rejuvenated fibroblasts can recover the ability to contract – Newswise

Newswise Fibroblasts are the most common connective tissue cells. They produce the structural framework for animal tissues, synthesise the extracellular matrix and collagen, and play a critical role in wound healing. However, during the cellular aging process, fibroblasts lose their ability to contract, leading to stiffness due to reduced connective tissues.

A study from the Mechanobiology Institute at the National University of Singapore has shown that these fibroblasts can be rejuvenated, or redifferentiated, by being geometrically confined on micropatterns. The above shows microscopic imaging of the control (left) and rejuvenated fibroblasts (right), with fluorescent labels highlighting the nucleus (blue), nuclear envelope (green), and cytoskeleton (in magenta). The presence of more contractile proteins (in red) in the rejuvenated fibroblasts indicates that they have recovered their ability to contract. These rejuvenated cells were observed to have reduced DNA damage, and enhanced cytoskeletal gene expression.

The results of this study were first published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on 29 April 2020.

The research team believes that their mechanical reprogramming approach can overcome the shortcomings of conventional rejuvenation methods, including generation of short-lived or oncogenic fibroblasts. These mechanically rejuvenated fibroblasts could potentially be used as clinical implants in regenerative medicine and stem cell engineering.

Smokers more vulnerable to severe Covid-19 infection: RGCIRC – ETHealthworld.com

§ June 1st, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Smokers more vulnerable to severe Covid-19 infection: RGCIRC – ETHealthworld.com

Representative imageNew Delhi, 30th May 2020; Covid-19 is a disease of the respiratory system in human beings. Since lungs and respiratory tract in tobacco smokers are already compromised, the severity of Covid-19 infection in smokers, such as difficulty in breathing, is far higher than the non-smokers, said Dr A K Dewan, Director Surgical Oncology, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre (RGCIRC).

The World Health Organization (WHO) has also stated that tobacco use may increase the risk of suffering from serious symptoms due to COVID-19 illness. Compared to non-smokers, having a history of smoking may substantially increase the chance of adverse health outcomes for COVID-19 patients.

According to Dr L M Darlong, Head of Thoracic Oncosurgery at RGCIRC, tobacco is the single leading cause of cancer in India. About 40% of the cancers in males and 20% of the cancers in females are related to tobacco. These include Lung cancer, Head & Neck Cancer and Oral cancer which are directly related to tobacco consumption . In case of lung cancer, smoking is the leading risk factor and accounts for 80% of lung cancer incidence.

Smoking is also a key reason for co-morbidities in a person such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, chronic respiratory disease and cancer. It has been noticed that mortality rates of Covid-19 are higher among patients with co-morbidities which are directly related to smoking. So it is all the more important to quit smoking during these times of health crisis, stated Dr Dewan.

As per the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS): India 2016-17, nearly 267 million, or 29% Indians aged 15 and above used tobacco in different forms. This makes the tobacco consumption in India as one of the highest in the world.

According to WHO, tobacco kills more than 8 million people each year. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Over 80% of the world's 1.3 billion tobacco users live in low- and middle-income countries.

Humans may have to modify their DNA to survive hostile conditions on Mars, say experts – MEAWW

§ June 1st, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Humans may have to modify their DNA to survive hostile conditions on Mars, say experts – MEAWW

Researchers are taking a leaf out of science fiction books to help humans colonize Mars. Future explorers may need to have their DNA modified to make the Red Planet their home, experts suggested. The idea comes as NASA eyes an ambitious goal: reaching our neighboring planet by 2030. But Mars is inhospitable and explorers will have to brave harmful radiation and the sub-zero temperatures. They also could lose muscles and face a bunch of other problems. "Human bodies are optimized for life on Earth, and ill-equipped for environments like those we will encounter on Mars," experts said.

So how can humans settle down in a region as hostile as the Red Planet? Recently, experts discussed the topic at length during a webinar hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences called "Alienating Mars: Challenges of Space Colonization." One problem is that Mars cannot shield humans from harmful radiation. Humans would fry upon arriving on the planet, Christopher Mason, a geneticist at Weill Cornell Medicine, the medical school of Cornell University, reportedly said during the discussions. "There, it would be certain death unless you did something, including every kind of shielding you could possibly provide," he added.

They think we can take a cue from water bears or Tardigrade. These tiny near-microscopic animals are unkillable even at extremes of situations. Even temperatures that are as cold as minus 328 degrees Fahrenheit or as hot as more than 300 degrees F cannot take them down. What is more, they can withstand radiation and even the vacuum of space - without requiring any help.

To set up base, scientists think inserting tardigrade DNA into humans may help. Advanced technologies "may need to come into play if people want to live and work and thrive, and establish their family, and stay on Mars," Kennda Lynch, an astrobiologist and geomicrobiologist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, reportedly said. "That's when these kinds of technologies might be critical or necessary," she added.

Researchers have inserted tardigrade genes into human cells grown in labs using gene-editing technology. These modified cells did a better job resisting radiation than unmodified cells, Mason said.

But the subject is controversial as it raises a lot of ethical concerns. Mason earlier told Space.com researches will have to spend decades studying the effects of gene editing before applying it to humans. "And are we maybe ethically bound to do so?" he said during the webinar. "I think if it's a long enough mission, you might have to do something, assuming it's safe, which we can't say yet."

Other researches are looking at means to terraform Mars: transforming the planet into a more hospitable world. But other experts warn against such a measure as we might wipe out Mars' native ecosystem, considering that the planet hosted life in the past.

"And how can we do that if we go and change the planet before we go and find out if life actually was living there?" Lynch from the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, said.
