Q & amp;A: How to Prepare for an AI-Driven Future

For years the role of robotics and artificial intelligence within the realm of medtech has been hyped as the future of innovation and device development. Now that technological advances are beginning to catch up to our imagination, how will advanced robotic and AI technologies begin to reshape the medtech landscape?  Srihari Yamanoor With advances in machine learning and robotic design, artificial intelligence is poised to have a dramatic impact on the medical device field. With innovative opportunities on both the diagnostic and therapeutic sides of medicine, AI technologies could be the key that unlocks an entirely new generation of transformative medical device technologies. Srihari Yamanoor is a research and design specialist with extensive experience in medical device design and applications. He has spent years in the medical device field working with computer-aided design (CAD) and robotic technologies and has garnered a wealth of experience with quality engineering and digital health platforms.   Hear Srihari Yamanoor talk about how artificial intelligence is changing medical devices at the BIOMEDevice San Jose conference in San Jose, CA on Dec. 6, 2017.   Yamanoor recently sat down with MD+DI Qmed to chat about the evolution of robotics and AI technologies in medical device field, and assess the role the two will play in the development of devices of the future. MD+DI Qmed: For starters, can you talk a little about the evolution o...

CONCLUSION Cognitive impairment can affect daily functioning, quality of life, and capacity to work in patients with cancer and those in remission. Consequently, cognitive assessment is now an important and necessary part of a comprehensive oncological care plan. Cancer-related cognitive impairment might be due to the direct effects of the cancer itself, nonspecific factors, or comorbid conditions that are independent of the disease and/or due to the adverse effects of the treatment or combination of treatments given for the disease. The prevalence and extent of cognitive impairment associated with cancer is recognized but...

Ensuring long-term quality of life in cancer survivors following treatment is critically important, particularly given the increasing effectiveness of treatments. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) remains a major side effect of cancer therapy, with many commonly used chemotherapies, leading to early cessation and long-lasting disability (Park et al., 2013).

The prognosis of cancer patients is constantly improving, which increases the importance of securing long-term quality of life. While therapy of treatment-related disability mostly succeeds a cancer-specific treatment, physicians' awareness of simultaneous supportive therapy is rising. Early interventions such as physical exercise during chemotherapy are effective in reducing conditions such as fatigue. Specific sensorimotor training is able to improve or even prevent impairment of balance caused by neurotoxic agents. Although targeted therapies reduce the risk of side effects, combinations with established drugs have to b...

In this study we demonstrate the use of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-based epigenome editing to alter cell response to inflammatory environments by repressing inflammatory cytokine cell receptors, specifically TNFR1 and IL1R1. This has applications for many inflammatory-driven diseases. It could be applied for arthritis or to therapeutic cells that are being delivered to inflammatory environments that need to be protected from inflammation." In chronic back pain, for example, slipped or herniated discs are a result of damaged tissue when inflammation causes cells to create ...

CONCLUSIONS:The SAC hydrogel system is an innovative treatment for local cancer therapy that exhibits high penetration and survival benefit. SAC hydrogel is an excellent vehicle for drug delivery in brain cancer, allowing the surgeons have an effect on treatment in the infiltrating part of the tumor, essential for cancer recurrence, disability and death.

This study provides additional fuel to really bolster research efforts by us and others in geroscience, a field that seeks to understand relationships between the biology of aging and age-related diseases. Aging is the most important risk factor for common chronic conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer, which are likely to share pathways with aging and therefore interventions designed to slow biological aging processes may also delay the onset of disease and disability, thus expanding years of healthy and independent lives for our seniors." Longer-Lived Parents and Cardiovascular Outcomes ...

Kendra and Jay Jeffcoat are the quintessential baby boomer couple. Kendra, 69, recently retired after a long and successful career as a college professor and administrator. Jay, 70, who spent his college years as student body president at the University of California, Santa Barbara, protesting the Vietnam War, continues to work full time as a corporate attorney in San Diego. In January 2013, Kendra was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which had metastasized in her brain. She never smoked, nor was she around secondhand smoke. But as Healthline noted in November 2014, lung cancer among women who don't smoke is on the ...

In conclusion, therefore, I can say with confidence that the future of aging research is extremely bright, both scientifically and medically. The pace of progress must now be sharply accelerated, via the injection of the funds that should for many years have been allocated at far higher a level than has actually occurred.
