Constructing a large network of multiple infections to determine how multiple parasites interact within humans

Constructing a large network of multiple infections to determine how multiple parasites interact within humans | Healthcare industry buzz | Scoop.it

Imagine going to the doctor with an infection and being sent home with a course of drugs. Unknown to your doctor you actually have two infections. If you take the drugs will the other infection go away by itself? What if you take the drugs and the other infection gets worse? This quandary faces those treating patients with multiple infections.

 

A new study led by former University of Sheffield PhD student Dr Emily Griffiths, in collaboration with the universities of Edinburgh, Liverpool and Zürich, has taken a novel approach to understanding this problem, shedding light on how multiple parasites interact within humans.

 

The study compiled a list of many of the parasites that infect humans, another list of the parts of the body consumed by each parasite, and also information about how the immune system responds to each parasite. This information was used to construct a large network of multiple infections in humans - a bit like a food web of infections inside the human body.

 

Building this network revealed some previously unknown patterns, something that could pave the way for new treatment strategies which help tackle multiple infections. For example, groups of parasites often share similar parts of their host, and these groups are prime candidates for coordinated treatment.

 

Dr Griffiths, who carried out the research during her PhD in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield, said: "After studying the fascinating range of hundreds of different infections that can occur in the same person at the same time, we've shown that we could better treat patients if we know what parasites are eating inside our bodies.

 

"Our web has revealed the ways hundreds of parasites could live together, which means that we can develop new coordinated treatments that help fight more than one infection.

More than one infection in your body can be the reason your not getting any relief from your meds....more research to come but this is a great start on how diagnosing the multiple infections can help identify coordinated treatments!

IMS mHealth Report: It's an App Jungle. Will the Fittest Apps Survive?

IMS mHealth Report: It's an App Jungle. Will the Fittest Apps Survive? | Healthcare industry buzz | Scoop.it
According to the 2013 IMS mHealth report, health apps in the US number 43,000+. In such an app jungle, will patients be able to find reliable health advice?

Beverly Morgan's insight:

"If you are a healthcare provider, you can now create your own branded patient apps. The MobileSmith platform allows you to easily and quickly build multiple mHealth apps with functions that meet both doctor and patient needs, without writing a single line of code.  Take control of your app development and ensure the survival of your apps in the mHealth app jungle!" -

Love this opportunity for healthcare systems & physicians to gain huge rewards from patient satisfaction if some of the triage and registration process was an app oN your phone.

Excerpt: One of the problems with mHealth apps, is that very rarely are medical professionals the ones who create them.
