Fight Aging! Newsletter, July 16th 2018
We presently forget 98% of everything we experience. That will go away in favor of perfect, controllable, configurable memory. Skills and knowledge will become commodities that can be purchased and installed. We will be able to feel exactly as we wish to feel at any given time. How we perceive the world will be mutable and subject to choice. How we think, the very fundamental basis of the mind, will also be mutable and subject to choice. We will merge with our machines, as Kurzweil puts it. The boundary between mind and computing device, between the individual and his or her tools, will blur. Over the course of the 21st century, people will have access to an increasing array of options when it comes to enhancing the function of the mind and the body. The young of today will live to see all of that span, and more. Aging will soon become a treatable medical condition, its causes addressed by therapies that repair the molecular damage that accumulates in old tissues. The human genome will become fluid, the subject of any number of treatments that alter genes or gene expression in adult tissues in order to achieve specific benefits such as greater muscle mass or increased resistance to disease. Somewhere down the line, biotechnology and nanotechnology will merge to produce technologies such as artificial cells and cell-like machines, vastly more efficient at specific tasks than their biological counterparts. Biology will become an option, rather than the present mandate. P...

[Necrotizing fasciitis in the head and neck region-three case reports and a review of the literature]. HNO. 2020 Jul 02;: Authors: Huber L, Budjan J, Rotter N, Lammert A Abstract Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a life-threatening, usually bacterial, soft tissue infection that rarely affects the head and neck region. Rapid progression and systemic illness are typical for the disease and complicate diagnosis. Immediate surgical and antimicrobial therapy is required. Three cases of cervicofacial NF are presented in this case report. All patients showed a rapidly progressing, painful swelling ...
Conclusions: These results support previous studies and help to appraise differences in personality traits between specific groups in a clinical setting. PMID: 32618499 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: When performing MEA, it is important to perform detailed examinations and careful monitoring of post-operative progress bearing in mind potential malignant uterine diseases. PMID: 32619375 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: We demonstrated a workflow for HIFU treatment of the porcine pancreas in-vivo under MRI-guidance. This development bears significance for the development of MR-guided HIFU interventions on the pancreas as the pig is the preferred animal model for the translation of pre-clinical research into clinical application.

Authors: Li Y, Wang D, Li X Abstract Lung cancer has attracted a lot of attention because of its high morbidity and mortality. The emergence of RFA provides a new treatment for unresectable NSCLC patients. In addition to killing in situ lung tumors, RFA also provides new immuno-activated antigens, for the treatment of lung cancer. It changes the tumor microenvironment and activates the entire immune system of patients. The peripheral blood cell count is easy to achieve and the blood cells are important in tumor immunity, which changes after RFA. On the one hand, the changes in blood cells identify the immune change...
Abstract Previous studies evaluating staging methods of lung cancer have focused on mediastinal disease. We explored the added value of endoscopic techniques after PET scan in the evaluation of N1 nodal stations in 276 patients with a radiologically normal mediastinum demonstrating a potential stage shift in 20% of patients. PMID: 32613092 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Adding SRT to RP does not seem to result in other than acceptable side-effects in the majority of men receiving SRT when taking a long follow-up time (median 10 years after surgery) into account. However, a subset of men develop severe side-effects where rectal bleeding dominates. PMID: 32619133 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The addition of k to established clinical variables significantly improves the possibility to predict treatment outcome after SRT and could be used to personalize future therapies. PMID: 32613088 [PubMed]
