Gene editing technology is a disruptive technology called CRISPR-Cas9 editing is going to flourish in the future. Scientists are widely utilizing gene editing in a variety of applications which include DNA imaging, therapeutics, and medical diagnostics.
Neurotechnology is widely used for serving various purposes such as neuro stimulations, brain imaging, etc. The types of neurotechnology are deep brain stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation, direct current stimulation, electrophysiology, etc.
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a highly contagious virus that affects the respiratory system. Infants and young children are more likely to contract this illness, which can cause serious complications such as pneumonia and hospitalization.
The next generation of healthcare will have a face that will likely be much different than anything seen before. The push to rapid innovation, especially in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, resulted in solutions that provided new outlook in the way healthcare is supervised.
Rapid development of big data, telemedicine, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices during the ensuing decades would promote the concept of digital health and further improve the use of electronic health records both now and in the future.
3D printing is not a new concept. It dates back to the 1980s. With the help of 3D printers, specialists can produce exact replicas of parts of the human body using MRI and CT scans, such as 3D printed thumb, enabling surgeons to prepare for complicated surgeries in advance.
Minimally invasive & non-invasive medical imaging and visualization systems are increasingly being used in the healthcare industry to detect and diagnose conditions early. Non-invasive imaging technology has many functions that benefit patients, including the detection and staging of cancer, monitoring treatments, detecting early signs of Alzheimer's disease or dementia, and assessing pain.
Poverty and income inequality are well-known contributors to health disparities within populations. It is also obvious that poor health can contribute to reduced income, and on the other hand, low income can also contribute to ill health.
Hepatitis C is a widespread virus that many people carry without realizing it. Some infected people are able to fight off the virus on their own and it rarely poses any threat to life. However chronic hepatitis C like cirrhosis and liver cancer if left untreated can be dangerous.
Prebiotics are dietary components that the host microbiota can selectively ferment, changing the composition in a way that is helpful. It has been demonstrated that particular strains of the bacteria Bacillus and Lactobacillus spp. improve the general health of pigs exposed to Salmonella and lower the number of Campylobacter infections in poultry. During pet food processing, both these prebiotic and probiotic dietary components are used to balance out the diet of the animals.
Vaccination is a safe, and simple way of protecting a living organism against harmful diseases before any other living being come into touch with them. Vaccination boosts the immune system by using the living being's body's natural defenses to generate resistance to specific diseases. Vaccines instruct the immune system to produce antibodies in the same way as it does when susceptible to disease.
Avian influenza is an international concern with ramifications for both animal and human health. Animal-borne influenza viruses have the potential to evolve and infect humans. The immune system of humans might not be able to protect against viruses that previously only affected animals, resulting in grave health concerns.
Choosing the right drug delivery system is crucial for effective treatment of various medical conditions. Novel drug delivery systems offer new and innovative ways to deliver drugs to the target site, improving efficacy and reducing side effects.
Telesurgery is cutting-edge technology that allows surgeons to perform complex procedures remotely using advanced robotic systems. The robotic arms and cameras of these systems enable precise movements and minimize the risk of surgical complications.
