The development of insulin injection lasts for several weeks
Maintaining normal levels of glucose in the blood is the first target for diabetics. Can this be done in an easy and longer way?
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A new study published in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering has found a new way to stop injecting insulin daily or weekly to take it only once or twice a month.
The lack of control of blood sugar levels in diabetics in the form required, raise the risk of suffering from various health problems such as blindness, liver disease, heart and stroke.
Despite the ability to control blood sugar levels in diabetics, many do not do so right or wrong, prompting researchers to develop a new drug to help those patients.
To help solve this problem, researchers developed a new type 2 diabetes drug, using glucagon-like peptide receptors 1, which investigates the production of insulin in the pancreas.
Since this future does not last long in the body, the researchers tried to merge it with other materials help him to succeed in keeping the future in the body for about a week, and combined with thermal valves to increase the effect of the future also.
The researchers pointed out that this new drug can be injected into the skin using natural needles, and once it reaches the blood circulation causes the body temperature to change the shape of the drug to be launched gradually.
In the results of the experiments carried out by the researchers in mice, they found that the effect of this injection lasted for about 10 days, while the effect of the same injection in the monkeys to nearly 14 days.
The researchers confirmed that the type II diabetes patients will be able to control normal levels of sugar in the blood for a period of up to weeks after the use of these new injections.
Fish skin to treat burns quickly
Many people suffer from various skin burns, including severe and severe and minor, but will be used fish skin in the treatment of severe burns? You know with us.
Some treatment units in Brazil have begun using fish skin to treat severe burns.
Where this technique is being studied and its effectiveness, especially in the case of scarcity of resources that help to treat burns in emergencies.
Severe skin burns are the most difficult pain a person can encounter. Initial treatment is usually done by trying to squeeze the burned skin to prevent dehydration and inflammation.
Doctors work to close the wounds as quickly as possible, and if the fish skin is used, the process of recovery and regeneration of the burned skin can be accelerated very quickly.
The doctors pointed out that tilapia is the most appropriate in this treatment, as well as availability of many, which allows the process of healing.
The doctors said keeping burns from the burns warm, moist and bacteria-free would ensure the patient to have exciting healing results, and the use of fish skin would help transport collagen to the burned skin as well as the necessary proteins that contribute to healing.
Doctors in some hospitals in Brazil applied this technique to some patients with burns, and noted that so far they have achieved great results in the following:
Speed up the healing process
Reduce the need for painkillers.
Fish skin is used as temporary dressings, which doctors remove later, and are less expensive than existing techniques available to treat burns.
A new treatment that records complete cases of leukemia
The name cancer has always been associated with many people with fear and fear of inevitable death, but modern medicine may have a different view. Read the news to know more.
Scientists have recently discovered a revolutionary gene therapy in the world of cancer called CAR-T therapy, in which nearly 100% of patients with multiple myeloma, a form of multiple leukemia, have been cured. The results were revealed at the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago, USA.
The new gene therapy is based on purifying the blood of the patient and isolating it from immune cells called T cells. These cells are modified in the laboratory and a new gene is introduced to eliminate the cancer cells. These cells are then returned to the patient. Fight cancer.
The group of doctors who supervised the experiment revealed the success of treatment in the recovery of a group of patients with leukemia completely, which is the first case of healing of multiple myeloma, and the state of complete recovery is rare occurrence of cancer in general.
Although the time is still somewhat early, and although the sample for which the new treatment was tested is relatively small (35 patients), it is interesting to note that all patients responded favorably to the new treatment only two cases appeared to be relatively stable. During just two months of treatment.
New treatments include: fever, low blood pressure, breathing difficulties.
The effectiveness of existing treatments is as follows:
Chemotherapy assists 10-30% of cancer patients.
Immune therapies help 35-40% of cancer patients.
Some of the currently available genetic treatments help 70-80%.
But no cure of the above was only 100% success rate of new gene therapy. Some 9 new cancer treatments have been approved since 2000, but they are not definitive treatments, but rather relieve and help cancer patients.
