Recently, hearing of mice with a genetic form of deafness which is similar to a type found in people was restored by a team of international researchers. This brings new hope for people suffering from hearing loss. Will genetic therapy be a new way to heal deafness? A senior scientist of Creative Biolabs explains more about this work.
Why choose gene therapy to do research? Hearing loss is the most common sensory impairment in humans, which, according to statistics, currently disables 466 million people in the world. And the incidence of genetic hearing loss in newborns reaches up to 1‰. Many cases show that hearing loss is actually related to genetic DNA mutations, and there are nearly 100 genes known to be related, such as GJB2, SLC26A4, 12SrRNA, etc. Mutations in hereditary hearing loss…
A reasonable diet and adequate nutrition can improve the health of a generation, prevent a variety of diseases, prolong life and improve the physical fitness of the entire nation. Unreasonable diet, excessive or insufficient nutrition will bring different degrees of harm to health.
People get all the nutrients and energy they need through food. A reasonable diet and adequate nutrition can improve the health of a generation, prevent a variety of diseases, prolong life and improve the physical fitness of the entire nation. Unreasonable diet, excessive or insufficient nutrition will bring different degrees of harm to health. Overeating can lead to obesity, diabetes, cholelithiasis, hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure and other diseases due to overnutrition, and even induce mesothelioma, such…
In the past five years, research has suggested that informatics and data analytics could save the health service anywhere between £16.5 billion and £66 billion per year. As technology unlocks new data sets and more sophisticated tools of analysis, our ability to harness information will be key to driving better health outcomes and more sustainable models of care. Steve Bradley, Group Managing Director at Cegedim UK, outlines how data holds the key to better patient care.
Power to the patient: the value of longitudinal data Steve Bradley, Group Managing Director, Cegedim UK, outlines how data holds the key to better patient care. It’s no secret that the digitisation of healthcare services and smarter use of patient data can have a transformative impact on the NHS. In the past five years, re…
Between 2017-2018, NHS England spent £173m on blood glucose (SMBG) test strips alone to care for diabetes patients. With an increasing number of people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, there is a clear need to cost save by rationalising the number of SMBG systems in use. By encouraging CCGs and prescribers to consider more cost-effect alternatives and identifying opportunities for efficiency savings, while retaining high standards of accuracy, now is the time to recognise and adopt best practice in formulary implementation David Englefield, Spirit Healthcare outlines how CCGs can change how they manage and implement their formulary in the below article.
Reducing the cost of SMBG test strips  With the latest news from NHS England highlighting that £700 million cost savings have…
If you’re upgrading or implementing a new hospital reporting system, what key questions do you need to ask to ensure that the technology provides you with the data set you need to ensure your organisation is safe operationally
DR MARK RATNARAJAHManaging Director (UK), C2-Ai - providing unique risk-adjusted systems for individualised patient risk prediction, avoiding harm and mortality in hospitals. In August this year, the Prime Minister pledged £250m to boost artificial intelligence and genomic testing in the NHS citing, amongst others, the benefits of harnessing NHS data. The long-term vision is to help the NHS become a world leader in utilising innovation and technology.At the time, Health Secretary Matt Hancock commented; “We are on the cusp of a huge health tech revolution that co…

Relieving local affiliates of heavy regulatory and/or pharmacovigilance workloads via a coordinated approach to outsourcing should be perfectly viable, but a frictionless global plan requires close coordination with HQ-level activities. Anna Lukyanova, COO of Arriello, offers advice on how to achieve a smooth transition.
Speed of delivery, agility and cost-efficiency are high priorities in today’s competitive global life sciences market, so it is crucial that life sciences brands are not held back by their respective regulatory obligations in each country or region. Yet this is exactly what can happen when there is a missing link between corporate HQ and dispersed operations or affiliates doing frontline work in local markets. Group head office can lose sight of the specific requirements in…
Enzymes are nothing but the necessary proteins that maintain the various biological and chemical functions within the body and these include processes like digesting food to activating the brain and thousands of others. Enzymes act as a catalyst for millions of reactions that happen within the body, that make us grow, sleep, communicate, get hungry, feel and many more. Overall, it makes us live.
The growth and reproduction of life, birth and death, and metabolism are all related to enzymes. Without the catalysis of enzymes, humans can't even carry out the most basic life activities, such as food digestion, oxygen breathing, etc., let alone other problems. In fact, almost all kinds of reactions occurring in living organisms are carried out by enzyme catalysis. We can even say that the existe…
According to the different nutrient modes of microalgae, the culture modes can be divided into photoautotrophic culture, mixed culture and heterotrophic culture. And according to the different culture methods, the culture of microalgae can be divided into batch culture, fed-batch culture, semi-continuous culture and continuous culture. This article introduces the cultivation of microalgae.
m the physiological point of view, most microalgae should have the ability to grow heterotrophically. The growth process of microalgae using organic matter mainly has two forms: one is that microalgae can use organic matter to carry out heterotrophic growth under completely dark conditions, and there is no difference between the general chemical heterotrophic organisms; another form is that microalgae us…
The rapid rise of molecular enzymology and enzyme engineering has been promoted, making enzyme engineering an important role in bioengineering. In fact, it is an epoch-making leap in human understanding of enzymes, transformation of new enzymes and extensive use of enzymes.
With the great insights on enzyme catalytic mechanisms, biosynthesis, structure, and the rapid development of physical and chemical technology, the rapid rise of molecular enzymology and enzyme engineering has been promoted, making enzyme engineering an important role in bioengineering. In fact, it is an epoch-making leap in human understanding of enzymes, transformation of new enzymes and extensive use of enzymes.   The microbial enzyme source is the main source of enzyme engineering research.
