A Breakthrough Research to Tackle Organ Shortage

Globally, millions of people cannot undergo organ transplantation due to a shortage of organs. New research has offered some relief to address the chronic global shortage of donor’s kidneys. A group of Japanese researchers has grown functional mouse kidneys inside rats with just a few donor stem cells.

The new kidneys appeared to be functional, providing proof-of-concept validation that this approach could be used to generate human kidneys inside livestock, according to the study to be published in the forthcoming Nature Communications journal.

‘Through this method, human stem cell-derived organs could be developed in livestock and could be transplanted to humans with end-stage renal diseases.’

For patients with end-stage renal disease, kidney transplant is the only hope for regaining quality life. But many patients never undergo transplant surgery because of a chronic shortage of donor kidneys.
Researchers have also been working on ways to grow healthy organs outside the human

How to Tell If Your Sunscreen Is Expired, According to Dermatologists

  • Check your sunscreen for an expiration date to see if it’s still effective. Even unopened bottles can expire after three years.
  • Using expired sunscreen puts you at a higher risk of sunburns and skin damage, so pick up new lotion if you can.
  • Heat and sun can also make sunscreen less effective before the expiration date, so toss opened SPF after a year.

    When that first unseasonably warm day finally comes and your gut instinct is to get outside, hopefully you second instinct is to reach for the sunscreen. Fair warning: You’ll probably want to skip slathering on last year’s goop. Yep, sunscreen doesn’t last that long — and using it past the expiration date can put your skin at risk.

    “You should not use expired sunscreen because it becomes less effective,” says Raman Madan, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist at Huntington Hospital. “This leads to less protection, which … read more

    Acupressure Relieves Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatment

    Acupressure could be a low-cost, at-home solution to reduce persistent side effects that linger after breast cancer treatment, according to new study.

    Researchers from the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center reported in 2016 that acupressure helped reduce fatigue in breast cancer survivors.

    ‘Acupressure is one of the best options to be done at home with minimal adverse effects to decrease the intensity of the side effects of breast cancer treatment.’

    In the new study, they looked at the impact of acupressure on symptoms that frequently accompany fatigue in this population: chronic pain, anxiety, depression and poor sleep. They found acupressure improved all of these symptoms compared with standard care.
    In the study, breast cancer survivors who reported fatigue were randomized to one of two types of acupressure or to usual care, which included typical sleep-management techniques. The women were taught how to find and stimulate the acupressure

    Benign Ovarian Cysts Should Be Left in Place, Study Suggests

    News Picture: Benign Ovarian Cysts Should Be Left in Place, Study Suggests

    Latest Women’s Health News

    WEDNESDAY, Feb. 6, 2019 (HealthDay News) — It’s a common gynecological finding: A growth on an ovary, which turns out to be a benign cyst. Is surgical removal necessary?

    Not always, according to data from a new study of more than 1,900 such cases in which outcomes were tracked for two years post-diagnosis.

    The team behind the research now believes that most women with non-cancerous ovarian cysts can simply be monitored over time, instead of having invasive surgery to remove the growths.

    “Our results may lead to a paradigm shift, resulting in less surgery for non-cancerous ovarian cysts — on condition that trained ultrasound examiners reliably exclude cancer,” said co-lead researcher Tom Bourne. He’s a professor at Imperial College London in the United Kingdom.

    As described by the researchers, ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop on ovaries and are identified through ultrasound scans. … read more

    New Treatment for Chlamydia Infections

    Prevention and treatment for chlamydia, the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted bacterial infection has been found. Unlike the traditional method of treating the disease with antibiotics, the new treatment is a type of gene therapy that is delivered through nanotechnology. On a single dose, the treatment shows 60 percent success rate in preventing chlamydia infection.

    “As antibiotic resistance continues to develop, people may experience Chlamydia infections that cannot be treated through conventional means, which is causing increasing public health challenges,” said Emmanuel Ho, a professor at Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy. “If left untreated or if treatment takes an extended period of time it can lead to infertility and other reproductive issues so finding new ways to treat this common infection is important.

    ‘This significant breakthrough research could help reduce the public health impacts of chlamydial infections that cause infertility and other reproductive issues.’
