The state of health of the gut microbiome

The state of health of the gut microbiome | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it

The state of health of the gut microbiome is associated with GI diseases such as Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel disorders. More surprisingly, the state of the gut microbiome is implicated in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, autism and even psychological disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression.

Beeyond's insight:

More than two millennia have passed since Hippocrates declared: “Bad digestion is the root of all evil.” In 2018, the importance of the gut flora in human health is at the forefront of scientific and public awareness and the gut microbiome is the new microbial frontier.

NVIDIA Releases Computing Platform for AI in Medicine

NVIDIA Releases Computing Platform for AI in Medicine | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is already beginning to have an impact in medicine, but there’s certainly a lot more that we should be expecting from it in the future. There are a number of issues that prevent a wider adoption of AI in medicine, a lot of them technological in nature. For example, medical systems can produce vast quantities of data and a lot of the data may be coming from old, slow systems that were never expected to interface with modern computer platforms. Moreover, there aren’t a lot of tools available for medical technology developers to harness the power of AI.

Beeyond's insight:
Healthcare system complexity is not news to anyone. Yet the impact in hard dollars on payers is news. Not only are people frustrated, but money is being wasted. In fact, more than half of US consumers do not understand how to navigate the current healthcare landscape because it is so complex. This low healthcare system literacy is creating an estimated $4.8 billion annual administrative cost burden for payers.

Looking Deep Into Living Brain Using Photon Counter on Laser Scanning Microscope

Looking Deep Into Living Brain Using Photon Counter on Laser Scanning Microscope | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it
PySight, as the technology is called, uses open-source software with commercially available hardware to give laser scanning microscopes a photon counting feature. Currently, a technique called multiphoton miscroscopy is used to see the short-lived events deep in the brain. In it, a laser excites fluorescent markers that were injected into the brain and these markers glow for a short time after excitation. Because there’s so much activity that happens at once, it’s hard to see much detail unless imaging is done with a very fast frame rate. But the faster the frame rate, the darker each frame becomes.

CAR-carrying macrophages also have potential advantages, and one firm plans to launch the first clinical trials of these cells next year.
