Technology makes progress every year health They stand out and 2018 was no exception, which is why the specialized portal SuMedico.com gathered the toughest achievements on the subject. Although most do not have the control and treatment of serious illnesses such as cancer and HIV, it is possible to know something new every day for 24 hours.
In 2018 Nobel Laureate Medicine went to James P. Allison and Tasuku Honjo immunologists to eradicate cancer. Innovative therapy is against Cancer is called immunotherapy and inhibits the creation of proteins produced by some immunological cells that prevent cancer-related death.
Immunotherapy aims to work faster to fight immune systems.
2. Transplant in the uterus of the cadaver
The only transplants in the uterus come from donors. However, in 2018, the first birth occurred when a transplant was born in the uterus of the deceased. The baby was born in Brazil and the first case of a square transplant was successful. Prior to 10 attempts were made without positive results.
Her mother was born without uterus due to a congenital syndrome that prevented her from babies and her stomach died at the age of 45 at the uterus.
3. Elimination of HIV in 6 patients
Researchers at the IrsiCaixa Hiesa Research Center in Barcelona and Gregorio Maran Hospital in Madrid detect HIV-positive blood and six-stroke tissues through cell transplants. Mother cells are umbilical cord and mule.
According to research published in the Annals of Medicine, this transplant has eliminated HIV almost from the body.
4. Test for cancer detection
With regard to cancer, advances have been impressive to develop a 10-minute cancer test. Scientists at the University of Queensland designed a rapid universal test that lasts less than 10 minutes and detects cancer's presence.
If there are bad cells in a part of a body, it is a simple test that changes the color of the cancer cells.
5. Smart patch
One of the most significant advances in health has been the development of intelligent patches due to the ability to control several health problems. Triglycerides and cholesterol patches are developed by UNAM, which works through a transdermal system that controls high levels of fat.
It can be used without the patient's specialist, and may last between 7 and 15 days.
On the other hand, they have created a slim and portable blood pressure sensor ultrasonic in the University of California called the Ultrashnen Patch. The tension is a small ultrasound device that transforms the blood pressure into high current currents to control blood pressure changes.
Another smart patch was developed by the Monterrey Technology and Higher Education Institute to cure wounds, healing ash and scrapes through analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs. It is based on Sibil and lasts at least 8 hours.
