20 Medical Technology Advances: Medicine in the Future – Part II.

Nanorobots swimming in blood vessels, in silico clinical trials instead of experimenting with drugs on animals and people, remote brain surgeries with the help of 5G networks – the second part of our shortlist on some astonishing ideas and innovations that could give us a glimpse into the future of medicine is ready for you to digest. Here, we’re going beyond the first part with medical tricorders, the CRISPR/Cas-9 gene-editing method, and other futuristic medical technologies to watch for. 11) In silico clinical trials against testing drugs on animals As technologies transform every aspect of healthcare, medicine, and the pharma industry, the monstrous clinical trial enterprise cannot be left out either. One way to modernize the drug testing process is applying technologies to the traditional framework, for example through online platforms to seek out participants; while an alternative way is to build a completely new setting. Human organs-on-chips and in silico trials represent the second approach. Researchers of the Wyss Institute have been working on the first strand, human organs-on-chips for years. These microdevices lined by living human cells can mimic the microarchitecture and functions of human organs, and this makes them ideal for replacing clinical testing. Going one giant leap further, we arrive at in silico trials: no humans, no animals, not even a single cell is required, and yet the impact of any given therapy...

AbstractBackgroundBecause of the severe shortage of suitable deceased donors, ABO-incompatible living donor kidney transplantation (ABOi LDKT) is performed even in pediatric recipients in Japan. We performed pediatric ABOi LDKT using rituximab without anti-A/B antibody removal.MethodsThirteen pediatric recipients (mean age 7.4, range 3.4 –15.7, four females) whose baseline anti-A/B IgG titers were ≤ × 64 underwent ABOi LDKT without antibody removal and splenectomy between July 2013 and April 2017 at Toho University. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) was initiated on day − 10. Rituximab (...

Resumo Este artigo tem por base uma investiga ção realizada entre novembro de 2013 e janeiro de 2017, na Universidade do Minho (Portugal), sobre os docentes da Universidade Óscar Ribas (UOR) (Angola). Foi alicerçado num referencial teórico, a Psicodinâmica do Trabalho de Christophe Dejours, e teve como objetivos analisar os sintomas biops icossociais e os sentimentos de prazer e/ou de sofrimento relacionados com o trabalho docente. Foi utilizada a metodologia quantitativa, que teve por base a aplicação de um questionário e duas escalas a 56 docentes da UOR. Veri...

Resumo Este trabalho tem por objetivo provocar reflex ões sobre o potencial das relações humanas para o cuidado em saúde mental a partir da articulação entre o agir educativo de Paulo Freire e o agir comunicativo de Jürgen Habermas, propondo um construto teórico denominado “ agir educativo-comunicativo ” na rela ção das/dos assistentes sociais com familiares e usuárias/os no processo de trabalho desenvolvido em Centros de Atenção Psicossocial. O construto teórico do agir educativo-comunicativo emergiu de categorias f...
