Openwater is new abilities to diagnose and treat diseases

New MRI technology of brain was created by OpenWater Company. Mary Lou Jepsen, a former professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, founded its own Openwater spinoff. Openwater has set itself the ambitious task of creating a wearable technology so that one can see the inner workings of the body and brain. Mary Lou Jepsen wants to replace the functionality of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) with true wearable permanent monitoring. As a result, it will help in the rapid and effective detection and treatment of cancer (lat. Carcinoma), cardiovascular diseases (lat. Vitium Cordis), internal bleeding, mental illness, neurodegenerative diseases.

Nanoparticles from tea leaves will treat cancer

Quantum points synthesized from tea leaves were developed by scientists from Wales’ Swansea University. Researchers believe that they can become a new direction of nanomedicine. The value of quantum dots in medicine is due to the fact that they stimulate the reactions of the human immune system, increasing the effectiveness of antibiotics and, even, perhaps in the future, can replace them. Quantum dots are tiny particles smaller than 10 nanometers in size, which can be obtained by chemical reactions, but there were quite a few toxic side effects. In addition, this cost of production was quite high. However, scientists from Swansea University managed to establish that producing such points can be cheaper and less toxic, using tea leaves.

Spectrometers are the perfect way to diagnose cancer

The technology for cancer (lat. Carcinoma) diagnosis was developed by Hindsight Imaging Inc. Usually, spectrometers are used to study outer space and search for distant worlds. Scientists use them to measure the oscillations of stars. In recent years, astronomers have moved away from beam spectroscopy, preferring instead technique using photometric transits, catching a faint darkening of the star that comes when the planet passes between it and the observer. Some NASA scientists believe that next-generation telescopes can lead to the advent of transit spectroscopy, which can help 'astronomers get some clues about how the exoplanet's atmosphere looks'. However, spectroscopy can be used not only for space exploration. Arsen Hajian with the support of NASA has found a new way to diagnose cancer, as well as a new way to search for chemical explosives and control over the content of medicines.

New technology and MRI enter battle against cancer

New healthcare platform develops unique diagnostic tests

New and cost-effective breast cancer screening tool

'Living drug factories' may one day replace injections

An implantable, insulin-producing device that may one day make injections obsolete has been developed by the MIT spinoff Sigilon Therapeutics. The technology at Sigilon - based on research performed over the last decade at MIT - has led to the creation of a device that encases cells and protects them from the patient’s immune system. This can be combined with engineered cells that produce a target therapeutic, such as insulin. Moreover, engineered cells could, for instance, secrete proteins to treat lysosomal storage diseases and even Haemophilia, a mostly inherited genetic disorder. The devices are tiny hydrogel beads, about 1 millimetre in diameter, that can be implanted into the patient through minimally invasive procedures.

Collabody technology for the effective delivery of anti-cancer drugs

System for delivery of antitumor drugs was developed by the Industrial Technology Research Institute, located in Taiwan. A universal molecular platform is capable of selectively binding to any cancer (lat. Carcinoma) cells and introducing into them large molecules of various drugs (including protein). Currently, many anti-cancer drugs do not have sufficient specificity for malignant cells, and, therefore, they poison almost the whole organism. For this reason, doctors are not able to prescribe sufficiently high doses of drugs, and chemotherapy is often unsuccessful. Parenteral and oral routes of administration are the traditional methods of delivering antitumor drugs in cancer patients. However, the maximum potential therapeutic effect of cytotoxic agents is limited, due to high systemic toxicity and insufficient perfusion of the tumor.

The new technology for colorectal cancer prevention

The new technology for the diagnosis of bowel disease was developed by the Israeli company Check-Cap. Colonoscopy is a very effective diagnostic tool for detecting polyps in the intestines, which can be associated with cancer (lat. Carcinoma). Effective, but unpleasant procedure - this is known to any person of mature age, who at least once in his life encountered the need to go through it.
