Putting cancer cells into a permanent sleep

Australian scientists have discovered a new type of anti-cancer drug that can put cancer cells into a permanent sleep, without the harmful side-effects caused by conventional cancer therapies. By targeting specific proteins researchers have been able to develop a small molecule that inhibits their activity. The process can stop tumour growth and spread without damaging the cells’ DNA. . Conventional cancer therapies (like chemotherapy and radiotherapy) cause irreversible DNA damage as they target both cancer cells and healthy cells. The DNA damage can result in short-term and long-term side effects such as nausea, fatigue, hair loss and susceptibility to infection, as well as infertility and increased risk of other cancers developing. This new class of anti-cancer drugs simply puts the cancer cells into a permanent sleep. https://blog.csiro.au/time-for-bed-anti-cancer-drug-putting-cancer-cells-into-a-permanent-sleep/

A breakthrough in detecting early stage stomach cancer

Two Japanese national research institutes have succeeded in using artificial intelligence to identify early stage stomach cancer with a high accuracy rate. The breakthrough should help extend the lives of patients in Japan in particular, where stomach cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Stomach cancer causes few symptoms and is often found only after it reaches an advanced stage. At an early stage, even specialists have a difficult time distinguishing the cancer from inflammation. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/07/22/national/science-health/japanese-researchers-use-ai-identify-early-stage-stomach-cancer-high-accuracy/#.W1Vk-aR_XDs

Reviving damaged heart tissues

Researchers are planning transplants that may revive tissues thought to be hopelessly damaged, including the heart and brain. The plan is to infuse mitochondria or a placebo solution into the coronary arteries of people having bypass surgery or — an even more dire situation for the heart — having both bypass and valve surgery. The patients would be those whose hearts are so damaged that it would be difficult to wean them from heart-lung machines after surgery. For these patients, mitochondrial transplants are an appealing option. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/07/10/health/mitochondria-transplant-heart-attack.html?

World first melanoma blood test

Australian scientists have developed a world-first blood test capable of detecting early stage melanoma, which could save thousands of lives each year. The test works by detecting antibodies in a person’s blood, which develop to fight off cancerous cells, and highlight if a person may have melanoma. www.9news.com.au/national/2018/07/18/06/52/australian-melanoma-blood-test-early-stage-detection-cancer-prevention

An easy way to monitor your blood sugar level

Theresa May was spotted wearing a diabetes patch when she met Donald Trump for a black-tie dinner in London recently. She revealed her type 1 diabetes diagnosis in 2013 and uses the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring device which has a small sensor that lasts for two weeks and monitors the fluid just under the surface of the skin. When you wear it you can scan it with another device or a mobile phone to get your blood sugar level. https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/why-theresa-may-was-wearing-a-white-patch-on-her-arm-when-she-met-donald-trump-20180713-p4zrb2.html

An X-ray breakthrough

The images created by the Lumitron Hyperview machines have 1000 times the resolution of a traditional X-ray. Limitron Technologies plans that its machines will be able to replace traditional X-ray and CT scanners in hospitals and identify problems such as tumours in far more detail. They would also have ultra-low radiation compared with today’s machines and theoretically be able to treat a tumour with precision radiotherapy at the same time as imaging it. https://www.afr.com/technology/aussies-lumitron-hunts-biggest-xray-breakthrough-since-1800s-with-336m-raise-20180626-h11vii

An auto CPR device that could help save a life

The AutoPulse® Resuscitation System provides high-quality automated CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Easy to use and battery operated, the AutoPulse squeezes the patient’s entire chest to improve blood flow to the heart and brain. The only device of its kind, the AutoPulse automatically sizes to the patient, and has shown improved outcomes in numerous clinical trials. https://www.zoll.com/au/medical-products/resuscitation-system/autopulse/ems/literature

Organs on chips to replace animal testing

Emulate uses organs-on-chips to accurately test drugs on individual, human organs. In the future, these could be your cells on a chip, tested with treatment after treatment until the right one sticks, offering personalised medicine tailored exactly to your genetic makeup. The micro-devices work by recreating the tissue interfaces of human organs inside a transparent polymer “chip”, so the behaviours of bacteria, drugs and human white blood cells can be easily monitored through a microscope. https://emulatebio.com
