Proyectos digitales al servicio de las personas con discapacidad

Proyectos digitales al servicio de las personas con discapacidad | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
La comunidad Conectados por la Accesibilidad impulsada por la Fundación Vodafone con la colaboración de Plena Inclusión España, Down España, la Orden Hospitalaria de San Juan de Dios, Confederación ASPACE, FEDACE y el Hospital Vall D’Hebrón, agrupa a más de 100 entidades que trabajan con personas con discapacidad para lograr estos objetivos. Mari Satur Torre, directora de innovación de la fundación, distingue dos líneas de trabajo dentro de los aportes que realizan: “una dirigida a la gestión de información y de apoyos, que es lo que llamamos la plataforma Mefacilyta; y por otro lado tenemos aquellas soluciones que facilitan métodos de acceso informativos y aumentativos”. Esta segunda línea es la que permite a personas con discapacidades motoras acceder a las nuevas tecnologías.

Aplicaciones para controlar y detectar el cáncer de piel

Aplicaciones para controlar y detectar el cáncer de piel | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Investigadores de la prestigiosa Universidad de Stanford, en Estados Unidos, están trabajando en el desarrollo de una aplicación que, a través de un sistema basado en inteligencia artificial, sea capaz de localizar melanomas con la misma precisión que un médico. El sistema de funcionamiento será muy simple para el usuario, que sólo tendrá que subir una fotografía de la mancha o del lunar para que la app detecte si es maligno o no.

La aplicación no estará disponible hasta 2021, si bien las primeras pruebas ya ofrece un 95% de aciertos en manchas malignas y un 76 en benignas. Sus desarrolladores advierten, eso sí, que, en ningún caso, esta app sustituirá la labor del médico.

JAMA study: technology to self-monitor blood glucose levels no better than traditional management of type 2 diabetes

JAMA study: technology to self-monitor blood glucose levels no better than traditional management of type 2 diabetes | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Diabetes management is among the most active, well-funded and rapidly-evolving areas of digital health. Connected tools that allow people living with diabetes to monitor their own blood glucose levels and work with digital coaching platforms to choose the best lifestyle practices to stay healthy abound, as do analytics platforms that enable remote monitoring and more detail-rich data visualization to help clinicians keep better tabs on their patients.

But compared with the traditional method of in-office visits, does self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) via digital tools result in better health and wellness for people with non-insulin-treated type 2 diabetes?

In the case of a 450-person cohort studied at 15 primary care practices across the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill health system, the answer was a flat “No.”

La hipocondría digital

La hipocondría digital | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
La e-salud, y sobre todo el crecimiento de la mhealth, ha producido un cambio radical en la medición de parámetros biológicos. Ya no es necesario acudir a un hospital o a un centro de salud para decir qué niveles de glucemia tiene uno, si el INR está en rango o la frecuencia cardiaca durante la noche ha variado mucho. Simplemente podemos tener toda esta información la podemos obtener casi a golpe de dedo a través de nuestro Smartphone y, lo que es más importante, haciendo una intervención casi mínima en el paciente.

Esto puede ser maravilloso, sobre todo en pacientes pluripatológicos donde debemos de tener controlados varios de estos parámetros. Y sobre todo el poder hacerlo desde casa, sin que el paciente tenga que desplazarse, es aún más maravilloso. El control casi total de los indicadores que puedan suponer un empeoramiento o deterioro en la patología del paciente.

Pero el control total ha provocado la aparición de un nuevo tipo de patología, que es la hipocondría digital.

Mapping gene expression, one cell at a time

Mapping gene expression, one cell at a time | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

EMBL researchers have succeeded in creating a molecular atlas of a whole organism, studying the expression patterns of more than 100 important genes in each cell of the marine worm Platynereis dumerilii, as they report in the journalPNAS. Study authors Hernando Martínez Vergara and Detlev Arendt explain.

 

The researchers are interested in the evolution of animals and in particular the evolution of the nervous system. Ultimately they would like to understand how simple nervous systems gave rise to the complexity of the human brain. An important step in answering this question is identifying all the types of cells that are present in various organisms. The scientists can then make comparisons to infer whether certain cell types in different organisms were inherited from a common ancestor, and at what point in the history of life they evolved. To be able to do this, they need to construct comprehensive atlases of cell types that exist in a range of organisms. That’s a huge technical challenge but they have now succeeded in creating one such atlas for Platynereis, focusing on gene expression. An international project is currently under way to create a human cell atlas, which is likely to take many years.

 

The technique used is called "whole mount in situ hybridization", in which a whole Platynereis larva is taken and label molecules are added. These labels then enter its cells and reveal where a particular gene is active. Separate observations in different larvae are carried out for each gene, and the researchers then use a computer to superimpose all the resulting images. This allows them to see which genes are active in different parts of the animal.

 

In this study they investigated about 100 genes that are known to be important for defining cell types.
