The first bionic kidney- replacing the need for dialysis

Scientists from the University of California have created the first bionic kidney that can replace damaged kidneys. This kidney is a perfect replica for a human kidney and should save millions of lives. The bionic kidney can be put into the human body by plain surgery and so far it has been shown to work effectively with everyone. It filtrates toxins from the blood in the same way as human kidneys. www.tehvibes.com/technology/by-2019-the-first-bionic-kidney-will-discard-the-need-for-dialysis/

A nerve implant to control pain that doesn’t require surgery

The 6.5-millimeter-long programmable implant can receive both power and data via ultrasound through more than 10.5 centimeters of tissue. Because of its versatility and small size it could be injected through a needle rather than require surgery. Scientists envision that it will greatly expand the number of conditions treated with electrical stimulation of the body’s nerves. So far, most of those treatments have focused on stimulating spinal nerves for controlling pain and the vagus nerve for epilepsy and depression. Non-drug treatments using nerve stimulators can be transformative for many patients. A nerve stimulator that could be implanted with minimally invasive surgery, or simply be injected, would allow nerve stimulation treatments to reach 100-fold more patients. Animal testing to prove the project is planned soon. https://spectrum.ieee.org/the-human-os/biomedical/bionics/ultrasoundpowered-injectable-nerve-implant-works-deep-in-body?

Immunotherapy to cure cancer

A friend was diagnosed with cancer this year and advised he had 3 months to live. He was given the option of immunotherapy at the Kinghorn Cancer Centre in Sydney and, though it had risks, took the option and his cancer has now gone. This exciting new approach to cancer treatment involves creating drugs that target cells of the immune system, not the cancer. Basically, the immune system is strengthened to protect against, or attack a specific tumour type. https://www.garvan.org.au/foundation/immunotherapy-changing-way-think-cancer-treatment/

An autism school program making a difference

Marangaroo Primary School is one of five public schools in Western Australia hosting a new program for students with autism. Under the program students receive intensive instructions in their own classes, while given every opportunity to integrate with mainstream students. The ultimate aim is for them to transition into mainstream classes.The programs follow the WA curriculum and target age-appropriate academic skills while addressing the many challenges associated with autism including socialisation, emotional regulation, limited interests and repetitive behaviours. Eligible students require an ASD diagnosis, without accompanying intellectual disability, and need to be independent in terms of toileting and dressing. www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-12/new-wa-autism-school-program-making-a-difference/9642608

Nanoneedles to detect cancer

CSIRO scientists are investigating whether wearable nanoneedles could be used to analyse interstitial fluid, which is the fluid around your cells. In that fluid they’re working to detect cancer biomarkers, like tumour DNA and other intercellular signatures, through your skin – but without causing any pain. If it’s found to be do-able, this could potentially give them the ability to detect cancers much earlier and increase treatment success, in a much less invasive way. https://blog.csiro.au/nanoneedles-just-what-the-doctor-will-order/

A silver-based compound that could stop cancer from spreading

New research indicates that a silver- based compound is able to tackle the energy centre (the mitochondria) of cancer cells, preventing them from growing and spreading. The compound still needs to go to extensive clinical trials before it can become available as a chemotherapeutic agent. However the findings pave the way for a new chemotherapeutic drug that could be more effective and less toxic, with fewer side effects. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/novel-silver-compounds-offer-a-potential-cancer-treatment-breakthrough?

A drug that can mimic the benefits of exercise

Not everyone can exercise. People with muscle-wasting diseases and movement disorders, the frail, the very obese and post-surgical patients are among those who face a significant challenge when it comes to exercise. This can be frustrating, considering the well-established benefits of exercise. A pill may be on the way to stimulate the body into producing some of the same effects as exercise -a drug that can help us game the system that is naturally activated during exercise.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/an-exercise-pill-may-be-in-the-future-for-those-incapable-of-working-out/2018/03/02/e8af9370-1bdb-11e8-ae5a-16e60e4605f3_story.html?

Nanobot Eyedrops to Repair Eyesight

Many people develop nearsightedness or farsightedness during their lifetimes. “Nanodrops,” a new eye drop developed by Israeli ophthalmologists, has successfully fixed corneas in pig eyes, and could potentially do the same for people. Developed by researchers from the Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Bar-Ilan University in Israel, the drops could someday improve both our nearsightedness and farsightedness. Patients would have to launch an app on their phones to measure their eyes’ refraction and create a laser pattern. This pattern would then be “stamped” onto the corneal surface of the eyes. Not ready for human trials yet, but it’s encouraging research. https://futurism.com/nanodrops-repair-corneas-replace-glasses

A new class of antibiotics to fight against drug resistant superbugs

Scientists trawling through thousands of soil samples have discovered a whole new class of antibiotics capable of killing drug-resistant bacteria. The chemical, which has been called malacidin, appears to be non-toxic in humans and effective in tackling the hospital superbug MRSA, raising hopes that it could be used to develop a new treatment. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/new-type-of-antibiotic-discovered-in-soil-in-breakthrough-for-fight-against-drug-resistant-superbugs?
