An important fact to be taken in account by Physicians at the time of establishing the treatment of patients with prostate cancer

Vanessa moreno's insight:

Max is a boy of six years old that have a genetic disorder called hypoidrotic ectodermal dysplasia for the bad performance of a gene, is express by a fine and sparce hair, that doesn´t grow much, the lack of teeth, the body get hot because the sweat glands haven formed properly, but even when he is a different boy, he can live a normal life

Gene therapies for regenerative surgery are getting closer

Gene therapies for regenerative surgery are getting closer | Genetic world | Scoop.it
Experimental genetic techniques may one day provide plastic and reconstructive surgeons with an invaluable tool—the ability to promote growth of the patient's own tissues for reconstructive surgery.
Vanessa moreno's insight:

Vanessa moreno's comment,Today, 1:38 PM

Dr. Giatsidis and coauthors had reviewed the state of the art in research of gene therapy techniques for treatments of local disorders and injuries. They found that there are studies, that promote the growth of different tissues. 
They think, that this advance can solve the biggest problem of reconstructive surgery: the lack of adequate tissues to correct deformities of a specific area or structure. 
The are being explored the healing of tendons, regeneration of injured nerves, and growth of skin flaps for reconstructive surgery. 
But despite this progress, to pass the experimental gene therapy methods, into regenerative surgery techniques for use in the operating room will remain a difficult challenge, it is still an difficult and expensive process, as said Dr. Giatsidis and coauthors.

I think that is a good advance for the reconstructive surgery and opens new options in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic ulcers, or who have been burned, and also reduce the body rejection in front the transferring of the tissues that plastic and reconstructive surgeons have designed.

Kevin Coleman's curator insight, June 4, 2013 5:47 PM

Vocabulary: passion, inspire, unique, strengths, values, success

 

From video: How to Find and Do Work You Love (TED.com)

What are your unique strengths?

What are your values?

What are your experiences?  What are you good at?  What are you terrible at? 

What makes you happy? Who/What inspires you?

 

What is the definition of success?

What does he mean, "climbing up the ladder?"  "Most of the people who haven't spent time figuring out what actually matters to them just keep reaching for something that doesn't mean anything to us but we are doing it because everyone said we are supposed to."

 

Now that you have reflected on your strengths, values, and experiences, is there a job or activity that fits well with you?

Banana genome sequence will aid crop improvement

Banana genome sequence will aid crop improvement | Genetic world | Scoop.it
Vanessa moreno's insight:

Angélique D’Hont, a French agricultural research scientist, and colleagues, have the entire sequence banana´s genome, they said that this advance can be helpfully for the economy of the developing countries and wich is staple food in the poorest part of globe.
The genome have 523 million ‘bases,’ (the chemical units that make up DNA and encode the genetic information). Transposable elements accounted for almost half of those bases.
The present day cultivated varieties were susceptible to fungal, bacterial and viral diseases, but a kind of banana, popular in south-east Asia is able to resist the devastating Panama disease fungus that has been spreading in Asia. Dr. Padmesh says if the genes that provide such resistance could be characterized, it could be transferred to other cultivated varieties.

It is a good advance especially to protect the crops from pest and deseases, but we have to think that this genetic modification won´t change the nutrients and won´t have side effects.

Vanessa moreno's insight:

Being successful for me is when you see your ownself and you like what you see, when you feel made and full with your own life, when you are happy in all aspects of your personal and professional life, so you transmit your happiness to people around you, be who you always wanted be but the most important, by honest way … When you can see and pick up the fruits of your labor.
