Exploring the Inner Workings of Human Cells โ€” Database of 200,000 Cell Images Yields New Mathematical Framework

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, health, mathematics

Working with hundreds of thousands of high-resolution images, researchers from the Allen Institute for Cell Science, a division of the Allen Institute, put numbers on the internal organization of human cells โ€” a biological concept that has proven incredibly difficult to quantify until now.

The scientists also documented the diverse cell shapes of genetically identical cells grown under similar conditions in their work. Their findings were recently published in the journal Nature.

โ€œThe way cells are organized tells us something about their behavior and identity,โ€ said Susanne Rafelski, Ph.D., Deputy Director of the Allen Institute for Cell Science, who led the study along with Senior Scientist Matheus Viana, Ph.D. โ€œWhatโ€™s been missing from the field, as we all try to understand how cells change in health and disease, is a rigorous way to deal with this kind of organization. We havenโ€™t yet tapped into that information.โ€

Researchers Provide New Insight Into the Carefully Choreographed Dance of Nerve and Vascular Cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, health, neuroscience

Nerve cells require vast amounts of energy and oxygen which they receive through the bloodstream. This results in nerve tissue being densely intertwined with numerous blood vessels. However, what prevents neurons and vascular cells from interfering with each other during growth? Researchers from the Universities of Heidelberg and Bonn, in collaboration with international partners, have uncovered a mechanism that ensures this coordination. The findings have recently been published in the journal Neuron.

Nerve cells are highly energy-intensive, requiring a large amount of fuel. Approximately 20% of the calories we consume through food are dedicated to our brain, as the generation of voltage pulses (action potentials) and transmission between neurons is incredibly energy-demanding. For this reason, nerve tissue is usually crisscrossed by numerous blood vessels. They ensure a supply of nutrients and oxygen.

During embryonic development, a large number of vessels sprout in the brain and spinal cord, but also in the retina of the eye. Additionally, masses of neurons are formed there, which network with each other and with structures such as muscles and organs. Both processes have to be considerate of each other so as not to get in each otherโ€™s way. โ€œWe have identified a new mechanism that ensures this,โ€ explains Prof. Dr. Carmen Ruiz de Almodรณvar, member of the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 and the Transdisciplinary Research Area Life & Health at the University of Bonn.

Dr. Stanley Plotkin, MD โ€” The Godfather Of Vaccines Discussing The Future Of Vaccinology

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

The godfather of vaccines discussing the future of vaccinology โ€” dr. stanley plotkin, MD.

Dr. Stanley Plotkin, MD (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Plotkin), is an American physician, scientist, and scholar, who in the 1960s, while working at Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, played a pivotal role in discovery of a vaccine against rubella virus (which is now used worldwide as a key component of the MMR vaccine), and has worked extensively on the development and application of a wide range of other vaccines including those for polio, rabies, varicella, rotavirus and cytomegalovirus (https://www.epiv.eu/).

USA And EU Advance AI Research In Critical Global Needs In New Administrative Agreement

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, health, robotics/AI

Yesterday, the Whitehouse announced that the USA and the EU (European Union) signed an administrative agreement to bring AI experts together to advance AI research as prior outlined in the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC) commitment.

This effort will further drive responsible advancements in AI to advance global complex challenges and develop a joint integrated research approach to achieve benefits in key research domains: extreme weather and climate forecasting, emergency response management, health and medicine, electric grid optimization, and agriculture optimization.

This article focuses on the AI leadership with the USA and the European Union in signing a new administrative agreement to do joint AI research in key global challenge areas like: climate change, healthcare, agriculture, etc.

Why Isnโ€™t There a Vaccine for the Common Cold?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

There should be some vaccine against common cold because globally millions of people suffer s due to this disease.

Vaccines are an effective public health strategy, but so far, science has not been able to develop one for the common cold.

Human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis C virus detection using ribonucleic acid sequencing among smokers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

In a recent study published in Scientific Reports, researchers identified serological Hepatitis C virus (HCV) signatures and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) signatures through the secondary utilization of ribonucleic acid sequencing (RNA-seq) analysis data among previous and existing smokers with or without COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

Viral detection by RNA sequencing analysis has increased the knowledge base of viruses causing human infections. Identifying undiagnosed viral infections by using existing nucleic acid sequencing data could facilitate epidemiological survey-based analysis and aid in the development of diagnostic and therapeutic options for improved population health.

Starling Medicalโ€™s new urine-testing device turns your toilet into a health tracker

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

If you enjoy some good toilet technology, then I think โ€œurineโ€ for a treat. Starling Medical is poised to launch its at-home urine diagnostic patient-monitoring platform, dubbed โ€œStarStream,โ€ that doesnโ€™t rely on the traditional catching containers or dipsticks.

Now, if youโ€™re thinking this technology sounds familiar, you would be correct: My colleague Haje Jan Kamps wrote about Withingsโ€™ U-Scan, a urinalysis device, earlier this month when the health-focused consumer tech company debuted it at CES. U-Scan also sits in the toilet for at-home monitoring.

However, Alex Arevalos, Starlingโ€™s co-founder and CEO, told TechCrunch that this is an underserved market โ€” the global urinalysis market is forecasted to be valued at $4.9 billion by 2026, meaning there is plenty of room for Withings and a scrappy startup.
