Precision Medicine and Public Health (from Precision Medicine and the Reinvention of Human Disease)

Excerpted fromPrecision Medicine and the Reinvention of Human DiseaseDespite having the most advanced healthcare technology on the planet, life expectancy in the United States is not particularly high. Citizens from most of the European countries and the highly industrialized Asian countries enjoy longer life expectancies than the United States. According to the World Health Organization, the United States ranks 31st among nations, trailing behind Greece, Chile, and Costa Rica, and barely edging out Cuba [42]. Similar rankings are reported by the US Central Intelligence Agency [43]. These findings lead us to infer that access to advanced technologies, such as those offered by Precision Medicine, will not extend lifespan significantly.Every healthcare professional knows that most of the deaths occurring in this country can be attributed to personal lifestyle choices: smoking, drinking, drug abuse, and over-eating. Lifestyle diseases account for the majority of deaths in the United States and in otherwestern countries, these being:heartdisease,diabetes, obesity, andcancer.Population-basedtrials that seek to improve theways inwhichindividuals live, by introducing adaily exercise routine, healthydiet, and cigarette abstinence, have yielded huge benefits, in terms of extending average lifespans [44]. At the front end of the human life cycle, it has been demonstrated that infant mortalities can be markedly reduced with simple measures, focusing on improved maternal education [45]. ...

Conclusions: Our report is the first study to examine the distant metastatic breast cancer proteome using FFPE tissues. The depth of our dataset allowed us to discover a novel biomarker candidate and a proteomic characteristics of distant metastatic breast cancer. Distinct molecular features of various breast cancer subtypes were also established. Our proteomic data constitute a valuable resource for research on distant metastatic breast cancer.

Conclusions: The results of the study show that the size of the scar can depend on the incision technique used. Larger scars after laser therapy limit the lymphatic flow of the skin, which may have an adverse effect on mapping sentinel lymph nodes. However, this hypothesis requires further research.

Authors: Piłat P, Borzęcki A, Jazienicki M, Gerkowicz A, Szubstarski F, Krasowska D Abstract Introduction: There are many papers in the available literature on the pre-operative evaluation of malignant melanoma (MM) using a 20 MHz probe. In many Western European countries, this examination is standard in the diagnosis of such lesions in terms of the resection margin. However, few papers describe and compare the results of melanoma thickness measurements using 20 and 50 MHz frequency probes. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the thickness of melanoma using 20 and 50 MHz probes. In addition, the obtaine...

We report epidemiological, clinicopathological and dermoscopic analysis of 8 cases of childhood LM from Poland, which is the largest series in the Central and Eastern European population. Material and methods: Three hundred and forty-eight patients presenting with various nail pigmentation (in 2010-2016) were analysed. 72 cases of LM have been identified, including 8 cases of childhood LM (

Authors: Pala P, Bergler-Czop BS, Gwiżdż JM Abstract Telemedicine may be described as a modern technology supporting health care at a distance. Dermatology, as a visually-dependent specialty, is particularly suited for this kind of the health care model. This has been proven in a number of recent studies, which emphasized feasibility and reliability of teledermatology. Many patients in the world still do not have access to appropriate dermatological care, while skin cancers morbidity is on an upward trend. Technological development has enabled clinicians to care for diverse patient populations in need of skin exp...
