A new technology that identifies healthy embryos

Life Whisperer, a new technology that identifies healthy embryos, has been labelled a game changer for couples struggling to conceive. The world-first IVF technology developed in South Australia uses artificial intelligence to compare images of new embryos with those that have previously led to successful pregnancies. Currently, doctors have to rely on the naked eye, and a microscope, to determine the healthiest embryo. https://7news.com.au/news/sa/revolutionary-ivf-treatment-uses-artificial-intelligence-to-find-healthy-embryos-c-76007

Digital Assistant to Monitor Your Health

Amazon just announced new skills of their electronic assistant ‘Alexa’ that enables users to monitor their health conditions. Alexa is able to relay and store blood sugar measurement, schedule doctor’s appointments, and pass on prescription delivery updates by securely accessing users’ private medical information. Amazon also ensures to protect users’ privacy according to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. https://www.wired.com/story/alexa-whats-my-blood-sugar-level/

A watch that tracks Parkinson’s

Global Kinetics, a startup based in Melbourne, has developed a wearable device called the Parkinson’s KinetiGraph (PKG) which continuously tracks the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It is designed for patients to wear for 6-10 days at a time, with the data then used to better inform doctors about how to manage and treat their patients. PKG is reported to be the first tech to provide an objective record of a Parkinson’s patient’s symptoms over time. www.globalkineticscorporation.com.au

Detecting cancer from a drop of blood

Researchers from the University of Kansas have developed a new type of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip which is optimized for detecting exosomes, the tiny parcels of biological information that carry important instructions for tumor growth. In recent years, biologists have mapped exosome behavior to detect cancer. This new device significantly improves exosome detection. It can produce these microfluidic sensors in a cheaper, easier and faster way.. https://www.futurity.org/cancer-blood-lab-on-a-chip-1992392/

A simple blood test for cancer?

Grail is on a quest to detect multiple types of cancer before symptoms, via a single, simple blood test. The test looks at cell-free plasma to find fragments of so-called circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) sloughed off by cancer cells. Detecting cancer sooner – before symptoms – means you can intervene earlier and people are less likely to die. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/could-we-soon-be-able-to-detect-cancer-in-10-minutes?

Drugs that delay diabetes

Researchers have found that diabetes could be kept at bay in animals by clearing out defective insulin-producing cells. Drug development has previously been focused on preserving these “beta cells” by preventing the immune system wiping them out, but US researchers say their findings turn this on its head. Their data suggest the problem may not be an immune system gone awry. Instead, perhaps therapies should find a way to do the job the immune system is failing to do: clear the senescent cells early on. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/paradigm-shift-in-type-1-diabetes-shows-new-drugs-which-could-delay-disease-s-emergence?

A new treatment that kills cancer in a few hours

This new type of super-precise radiotherapy promises to transform the way we treat certain types of lung cancer, after a Melbourne-led clinical trial revealed the treatment significantly improved survival chances. Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) uses thin beams of radiation to directly attack the tumour. It’s also cheaper than traditional radiotherapy. In this way, the tumour receives a very high dose of radiation and the surrounding tissues largely avoid it, minimising side effects. And patients only need to come to hospital three or four times, rather than regularly over the space of two months. https://www.smh.com.au/national/like-winning-lotto-the-treatment-that-kills-cancer-in-a-few-hours-20190212-p50xdo.html

Tests that can predict chronic conditions

Currently, most medical treatments are provided to people after the onset of disease symptoms, regardless of their genetic background. As a result, people may receive treatments too late to be effective and, in some cases, unsuitable treatments are administered. Proprietary tests developed by Advanced Genetic Diagnostics, a participant in the CSIRO ON program, can be applied years before the development of chronic disease symptoms. Earlier treatment of high risk people could save lives. They are currently seeking investors to market their test across the globe. www.advancedgenetictests.com
