Controlling diabetes with your phone might be possible someday

(Rutgers University) Nerve-stimulating procedures from ancient traditional acupuncture and the more modern electroacupuncture and neuromodulation relieves chronic pain, pelvic disorders and Parkinson's disease, and can be advantageous for treating inflammatory disorders like arthritis and deadly infections like sepsis.

What are your concerns about psuedo-scientific quackery (acupuncture, chiropractic, energy healing, Yoga, etc) infiltrating academic pain departments? Oncology is struggling with this. Is pain the next field to be taken over by non-MD/DO psuedoscientific practitioners? The quackery of "naturopathic oncology" is metastasizing - RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE... Quackademic Pain Medicine

Researchers at the  Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have discovered how high glucose levels — whether caused by diabetes or other factors — keep heart cells from maturing normally. Their findings help explain why babies born to women with diabetes are more likely to develop congenital heart disease.The study, which was led by Atsushi “Austin” Nakano, a UCLA associate professor of molecular, cell, and developmental biology and member of the Broad Stem Cell Research Center, was published today in the journal eLife.When developing heart cell...

Boston Scientific won FDA approval for its Vercise Deep Brain Stimulation System for treatment of Parkinson’s. The implantable stimulator can be programmed in a variety of ways to target different regions of the subthalamic nucleus. This may help to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s by delivering therapy in an optimal way for each patient. The implant is rechargeable and can last for more than 15 years. Each of the eight electrodes on the leads can be controlled independently. The electrodes make contact with brain tissue along a 15.5 millimeter length, meaning they’re separated by only .5 millimeters. T...

Authors: Kalita B, Das MK Abstract The drug with poor oral bioavailability necessitates the development of novel carrier for efficient drug delivery. This paper reports the rutin-phospholipid complex in polymer matrix for sustained delivery of rutin via the skin for the treatment of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. Rutin in phospholipid complex (RNPs) are better soluble and permeable than the free rutin. The RNPs-loaded polymeric matrix patch with moderate adhesiveness was developed for convenient means of long term drug application on the skin. The patch was analysed for physicochemical properties, ex vivo...

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.

This report captures the state of the research community in a nutshell: progress in the sense that ever more scientists are willing to make the treatment of aging the explicit goal of their research, but, unfortunately, there is still a long way to go in improving the nature of that research. It is still near entirely made up of projects that cannot possibly produce a robust and large impact on human life span. The only course of action likely to extend life by decades in the near future is implementation of the SENS vision for rejuvenation therapies - to repair the molecular damage that causes aging. Everything else on th...
