Drugs Ferry: ”We are not limited to one active ingredient group or one active ingredient“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/05/2012] Drugs that treat brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis are most effective directly where they are needed – in the brain. Unfortunately, it is difficult to develop drugs that are capable of getting there specifically, since the so-called blood-brain barrier prevents this from happening. However, now a team led by Doctor Heiko Manninga succeeded in doing precisely that. Drugs Ferry: ”We are not limited to one active ingredient group or one active ingredient“ - Read more

Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program: ”It was and is our aspiration to structure residency training and education“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/05/2012] What can future medical specialists expect during the time of their training and education, which areas will they have gotten to know and what quality is attached to the apprenticeship. Depending on the hospital and location in Germany, this question has to be answered differently.

Unique Device Identification: "Global interconnectedness makes uniform traceability systems necessary"

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[23/04/2012] In order to design safety standards and traceability of medical devices more professionally in the future, international committees are currently working on a new identification system that could apply worldwide in the future. In doing so, products could be identified during their entire life cycle.Unique Device Identification: "Global interconnectedness makes uniform traceability systems necessary" - Read more

Gender Determination: “Intersexuality is not a disease“

[10/04/2012] Most people are clearly female or male. Nature however – human nature as well – also knows other gender types. Intersexuality has always been around in the world and now it is time for society and medical science to finally accept it.Gender Determination: “Intersexuality is not a disease“ - Read more

Preemies: “The anatomical maturation of the lung makes a gas exchange possible after the 22nd week of pregnancy at the earliest“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/04/2012] In the event of a premature delivery, the lung of a newborn child is often not able to assume its function. One reason for this: it lacks a tenside called surfactant (surface active agent), that makes sure that the lungs don’t stick together during the breathing process. MEDICA.de spoke to Professor Peter Bartmann, Director of Neonatology at University Hospital Bonn, on how preemies can be helped.Preemies: “The anatomical maturation of the lung makes a gas exchange possible after the 22nd week of pregnancy at the earliest“ - Read more

Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: “The lungs are no longer airtight“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/04/2012] Across Germany nationwide there are currently 12,000 patients waiting for an organ transplant, but available donor organs, like lungs for instance are still in short supply. In addition, transport to the patient is tricky: oftentimes organs get damaged. Why is that? Now researchers discovered why.Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: “The lungs are no longer airtight“ - Read more

Medical Services: “Many patients feel blindsided by individual health benefits“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/03/2012] Individual health benefits, so-called IGeL in Germany, are more and more often offered to German patients at their doctor’s office. Many recipients however are unsure whether the benefit is really necessary or whether their health really depends on paying for some benefits out of their own pocket.

Sensor-Chip for Tumour-Monitoring: "Changes can be well detected"

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/03/2012] For cancer patients, chip implants could play an important role in the future - especially, when it comes to difficult to operate tumours. The chip technology will help doctors to monitor the tumour, because it measures the oxygen content in the tissue fluid. Once the oxygen level drops, the tumour threatens to accelerate its growth.

Product development: “If you fail early, you will reach your goal faster“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/03/2012] Medical devices are becoming increasingly complex and develop faster and faster technically. Modern medicine would be unthinkable without the use of new and more delicate equipment. But there can also be risks to patients, since a comprehensible handling cannot be guaranteed in all cases – it can’t even be excluded in experienced medical specialists.

Patents in Medical Technology: “You can have an endoscope patented, but not the minimally invasive surgery procedure“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/03/2012] Anesthetics, intracardiac catheters and computer tomography – all of these are milestones in medicine. Some inventors had their discoveries patented, while others are completely denied the possibility.Patents in Medical Technology: “You can have an endoscope patented, but not the minimally invasive surgery procedure“ - Read more
