    Detecting cancer at the atomic level

      SOURCE January 27, 2015 (Nanowerk News) As a young physicist in the former Soviet Union, Igor Sokolov studied the biggest of the big—the entire universe. Now, as a professor of mechanical engineering at Tufts, he’s focused on the tiny, the nano. By zooming in—way, way in—Sokolov and his colleagues […]

    Eight genes that make us brainiacs

    The size of key brain structures (colors) are influenced by different genes. SOURCE January 25, 2015 In the animal kingdom, humans are known for our big brains. But not all brains are created equal, and now we have new clues as to why that is. Researchers have uncovered eight genetic […]

    The language of T lymphocytes deciphered, the Rosetta Stone of the immune system

      How can our immune system defend us against aggressors so diverse such as viruses, parasites, fungi and tumours? The secret lies in the large number of clones of T and B lymphocytes, each of which expresses a particular specific receptor. Until a few years ago, deciphering the complexity of […]

    Obesity Genes Modified after Gastric Bypass and Weight Loss

    An analysis of DNA methylation in human adipose tissue reveals differential modification of obesity genes before and after gastric bypass and weight loss Abstract Background Environmental factors can influence obesity by epigenetic mechanisms. Adipose tissue plays a key role in obesity-related metabolic dysfunction, and gastric bypass provides a model to […]

 

Medical Devices, Medical Apps, Doctor and Patient

Education, Medical Blogs, Videos, Websites and Podcasts

The purpose of this website is to introduce both patients and healthcare professionals to the impact of the Internet on medicine and healthcare, by curating and organizing relevant articles in all fields of the digitalization of Medicine. (See i-NEWS section on Main Menu). Medical Apps and Medical Devices are examined, and internet technology and Patient Education are evaluated., for their places in all medical settings. The influence of the internet is shown in every Medical Specialty,, and improvements in Medical Education through the internet by showing the viewer the Top Patient Accredited Medical Information Websites, , the Best Medical Blogs, the top Medical Videos, and best Medical Podcasts. In addition to the latest-breaking Internet Medical News and Internet Medical Research News in all specialties are studied.. As Dr. Eric Topol of the Scripps Digital Medicine says, vast changes are occurring, now, due to the convergence of changes in technology. Medical Apps and Medical Devices are affecting many areas of of Medicine. Overall, the internet is changing all healthcare, from the use of Internet Technology in Hospital Administration in America to the use of iPhones to diagnose infectious disease in Africa

We are living in a great time for medicine. As most know, it is time for a change..

RESEARCHERS AT DOUGLAS AND MCGILL AIM TO RESET THE BIOLOGICAL CLOCK

SOURCE January 22, 2105 Human beings are primarily diurnal, sleeping at night and remaining awake and active during day. Loss of sleep can seriously disrupt the body’s internal biological clock. This, in turn, can cause cardiovascular problems or even cancer. There is no single therapy aimed at addressing disruptions in […]
