Mind-reading exoskeletons, digital tattoos, 3D printed drugs, RFID implants for recreational purposes: mindblowing innovations come to medicine and healthcare almost every single day. We shortlisted some of the greatest ideas and developments that could give us a glimpse into the future of medicine, but we found so many that we had trouble fitting them into one article. Here are the first ten spectacular medical innovations to watch for. 1) Mixed reality opens new ways for medical education Augmented, virtual, and mixed reality are all technologies opening new worlds for the human senses. While the difference between...

Proposed model depicting the epidermal growth factor receptor ‐extracellular‐regulated kinase‐TRIM32 signaling axis in the regulation of neuronal differentiation. A, Under myelin‐associated inhibition, protein kinase C‐, Src‐Pyk2‐induced epidermal growth factor receptor‐extracellular‐regulated kinase signaling pathway was activated, resulting in TRIM32 inhibition and neuronal differentiation of neural stem cells inhibition. B, Cetuximab and gefitinib can directly block epidermal growth factor receptor. Go6976 and PP2 were used to inhibit PKC and Src‐Pyk2, respectively, which resulted in epidermal growth...

We investigated the therapeutic efficacy of simulated microgravity-cultured mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) injection following spinal cord ischemia−reperfusion injury. Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into sham, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), normal gravity-cultured MSC (MSC-1G), and simulated...

Conclusion: Under the guidance of Allen's model, compared with the group 2, the experimental group 1 of the rat spinal cord injury model has better recovery in each index. It can be seen that the smaller impact strength is more beneficial to the recovery of rats after spinal cord injury surgery.

CONCLUSION: This pilot trial suggests TTNS is feasible to be performed at home in people with chronic SCI. Participants were able to reduce anticholinergic medication dosage and anticholinergic side effects while maintaining continence, subsequently improving QoL scores. These results advocate for further randomized, controlled trials with longer duration and urodynamic evaluation to assess long-term efficacy. PMID: 31607105 [PubMed]
