Graphic: the transparent liquid bandage [22/10/2014] Inspired by a desire to help wounded soldiers, an international, multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Assistant Professor Conor L. Evans at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) has created a paint-on, see-through, "smart" bandage that glows to indicate a wound's tissue oxygenation concentration.'Smart' bandage emits phosphorescent glow for healing below - Read more

[01/08/2014] Bacteria lurk everywhere: on the skin, in the intestines and in every puddle. Most of them that are hanging out in the human body are good bacteria. But not all of them. Those pathogens that exhibit resistance and are thus very hard to combat are the most dangerous kind. Their spread threatens people all over the world.Multi-resistant bacteria want to conquer the world - Read more

The study suggests that the injected polio vaccine (IPV) could provide better and longer lasting protection against infection if used in combination with the more commonly used live oral polio vaccine (OPV). Injected vaccine could help eradicate polio - Read more

Seeing your true colors: standards for hyperspectral imaging

Photo: Hyperspectral imaging [03/07/2014] Today, doctors who really want to see if a wound is healing have to do a biopsy or some other invasive technique that can really only offer information about a small area. A technology called hyperspectral imaging offers doctors a noninvasive, painless way to discriminate between healthy and diseased tissue.Seeing your true colors: standards for hyperspectral imaging - Read more

Cultured skin makes large-scale transplantations possible

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/07/2014] Large burns require skin grafting. Surgeons remove split-thickness skin grafts and apply them to the injured areas. Now skin that has been made in a laboratory is meant to help in covering burns as well as chronic wounds and thus promote the healing process. Researchers in Zurich have been working on this for more than 13 years.Cultured skin makes large-scale transplantations possible - Read more

Diagnosing Parkinson’s: the skin is revealing

[01/07/2014] In patients with Parkinson’s, neural cells in the brain die off that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine. Certain physical symptoms that can indicate the disease follow years later. But a reliable diagnosis can only be made through examination of the brain after the patient’s death, and not during his or her lifetime.Diagnosing Parkinson’s: the skin is revealing - Read more

Fat is the best medicine: ”Adipose tissue contains many multipotent stem cells, approximately 500 times more than bone marrow“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/07/2014] The not so popular “love handles“ could revolutionize medicine in the near future. In cooperation with the University of Rostock (Professor Hermann Seitz), the human med AG Company currently seeks to develop a device that is able to gently remove adipose tissue during surgery and subsequently isolate stem cells. Fat is the best medicine: ”Adipose tissue contains many multipotent stem cells, approximately 500 times more than bone marrow“ - Read more
