A blood test that’s a breakthrough for detecting cancer

Scientists have created a blood test that can detect eight of the most common cancers long before they turn lethal, in a breakthrough that could save millions of people from premature death. The “liquid biopsy” identifies early-stage tumours from proteins and genetic mutations circulating in the blood. Called CancerSEEK, the test delivers almost no false positives, sparing patients needless heartache and unnecessary medical procedures for non-existent diseases. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/health-science/blood-tests-deliver-cancer-breakthrough/news-story/8874f0bd0d4b4eea680892d421c2f12c

An implantable artificial kidney

There are 2 million people in the world who require kidney dialysis every week to clean their blood. This is a time-consuming and cumbersome process, without which you die. A team at the University of California, San Francisco, has developed the first implantable artificial kidney, that can be connected to your circulatory system and bladder to clean your blood 24 hours a day. After 20 years of development, the Kidney Project is due to start clinical trials in early 2018. https://pharm.ucsf.edu/kidney

VR that lets scientists walk around inside cancer cells

Imagine being able to walk around inside a virtual replica of your own cells. That is becoming a reality, thanks to groundbreaking technology developed at the University of New South Wales. In the future, cancer patients could see a virtual version of themselves, and track where drug treatments are ending up in their bodies. You could then show your family and friends what’s happening to you and it will empower you to make your treatment decisions. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-12-19/virtual-reality-allows-scientists-to-walk-in-cancer-cells/9268730

Tobacco companies forced to tell the truth in advertising

5CD63CB4-D974-427A-A34A-1947FDF88E3B

Major American cigarette manufacturers are now publishing anti-smoking ads to correct the misleading statements they made over many years about the effects of smoking, a move that complies with a court order filed in 2006. The ads explain that smoking kills and cigarettes are intentionally designed to get people addicted. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/big-tobaccos-anti-smoking-ads-begin-after-decade-of-delay/2017/11/21/8841d418-ce82-11e7-a87b-47f14b73162a_story.html

A robotic surgeon’s assistant that can feel your body

38E5F5B9-1CB6-4EB2-9633-A623D3493EE5

The FDA has recently cleared Senhance, a robotically assisted surgical device for use in minimally invasive surgeries. Senhance enhances surgeons’ capabilities through a screen with a 3D HD view of the surgical field, where they remotely control three separate arms, each equipped with surgical instruments. Senhance’s camera can follow their eye movements and show what they’d be looking at if they were manually performing the surgery on screen. The machine’s controllers can also make surgeons feel the stiffness of the tissue they’re operating on. https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/15/fda-approves-senhance-robotic-surgical-assistant/

A tax on sugary drinks to improve health

IMG_2484

New modelling in a study published in the latest Nutrients journal shows a 30 per cent reduction in kilojoules in all sugar-sweetened drinks would not only reverse Australia’s obesity crisis, but drastically reduce the number of people succumbing to obesity-related diseases such as stroke, diabetes and kidney cancer. Two-thirds of Australian adults and one in four children are overweight or obese, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. In the US Boulder in Colorado, four cities in California (San Francisco, Oakland, Albany and Berkeley), Seattle and Philadelphia have managed to introduce a tax on soft drinks. Philladelphia’s proceeds go directly into an educational fund paying for pre-kindergarten and community schools leading to heavy support for the tax by families. http://www.opc.org.au/

Free genetic test for high risk cancer patients

istock_491089146.jpg.size-custom-crop.1086x0 (1)

In Australia people at high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer will be offered free genetic testing. If someone has breast and ovarian cancer and has the mutations, all their relatives will be able to have the test for free. If they don’t have the mutation, they can go back to normal screening. This new service is expected to significantly improve the lives of Australians, offering more choice via access to affordable screening and treatment options, http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-12/breast-and-ovarian-cancer-test-free-for-high-risk-patients/9040274

Winning the war on drugs by treating it as a health issue

458903171

Portugal decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001. Possession and use of small quantities of these drugs was treated as a public health issue, not a criminal one. The drugs were still illegal but now getting caught with them meant a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record. Drug-induced deaths have decreased steeply since then. Portugal’s drug mortality rate is now the lowest in Western Europe — one-tenth the rate of Britain or Denmark, and about one-fiftieth the latest number for the U.S. https://mic.com/articles/110344/14-years-after-portugal-decriminalized-all-drugs-here-s-what-s-happening
