What ’s the Big Deal about Data in Medtech?

Discussion, “Top 5 Things You Need to Know about the Implantable Internet of Things." Brian Chapman, partner and leader of ZS’s medtech practice of ZS, attributes today’s focus on data to the intersection of two important things: "A general recognition that understanding more and connecting actions with outcomes will provide feedback and understanding that will drive standards of care. This is not new, but as capabilities rise in data collection, aggregation, and synthesize rise, and coupled with machine learning, the promise of data in healthcare is becoming even more obvious. "Entrant of big, ostensibly ‘tech’players into healthcare has everyone realizing the potential. If you want to look for additional supporting trends, look no further than Google’s proposed acquisition of FitBit, which is about both hardware and, possibly more importantly, access to an enormous trove of data. More proof in the news cycle recently is the visibility that just emerged about the relationship between Google and Ascension, which is all about data." Teresa Prego, senior vice president of marketing and business development, explained the connection between digital health and data during her keynote talk at MD&M Minneapolis. “How do you even define digital health? [It’s] taking technologies, information management, and advances in pul...

The objective of this study was to examine the safety and functional properties of Staphylococcus simulans PMRS35 isolated from Budu. This strain possessed good lipase activity and moderate protease activity, tolerated 25% of salt, and did not exhibit decarboxylase activity. In addition, this strain displayed not only negative results towards pathogenic genes, hemolytic activity, and biofilm formation ability but also sensitivity to conventional antibiotics which included chloramphenicol, vancomycin, erythromycin, tetracycline, and gentamycin. Most importantly, the isolate maintained its viability towards simulated gastroi...

This study determined the bio-control efficacy of Pichia anomala alone and supplemented with 1% chitosan in the grapes against blue mold disease. The result showed that chitosan (1%) better induced the bio-control efficacy of P. anomala. P. anomala supplemented with 1% w/v chitosan significantly reduced the disease incidence, lesion diameter and natural decay of grapes without affecting the fruit quality compared to the control. In addition it enhanced the activities of disease defence related enzymes like ascorbate peroxidase (APX) and chitinase (CHI); and decreased the formation of malondialdehyde (MDA) and hydrogen pero...

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: Zoologischer AnzeigerAuthor(s): Lu Liu, Bao-Zhen HuaAbstractBittacidae is the the only cosmopolitan family in Mecoptera and little information is available on the larval morphology in most genera. Here, we investigate the morphology of the first-instar larva of the two-tailed hanging-fly Bicaubittacus longiprocessus (Huang and Hua, 2005) using light and scanning electron microscopy. The larva is eruciform and possesses three pairs of thoracic legs and eight pairs of abdominal prolegs. The head bears a median ocellus on the frons and a pair of compound eyes with sev...

ConclusionsThe combination of rs-fMRI and EEG/iEEG can reveal more information about dynamic functional connectivity. However, simultaneous fMRI and EEG data acquisition present challenges. We have proposed system models for leveraging and processing independently acquired fMRI and EEG data.

This study aims to investigate the gamma and neutron attenuation properties of several OAD (oral anti-diabetic drugs) samples. Our sample consists of seven different OAD films with different elemental compositions. The data were evaluated with Monte Carlo (MATLAB, WinX) techniques by SEM (Scanning electron microscopy) and EDS (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy) analysis. By using WinXCOM in the energy range from 0.02 MeV to 20 MeV, the mass attenuation coefficients (μ/ρ) for OAD samples are calculated. Additionally, both effective removal cross-section and effective atomic numbers (Zeff) for the sample films ...

Authors: Chiba Y, Fukushima A, Nakao M, Kobayashi Y, Ishigaki T, Tenma T, Kamiya K, Shingu Y, Ooka T, Matsui Y, Anzai T Abstract A 23-year-old man had progressive muscle weakness and Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) due to a LMNA (lamin A/C) mutation. Congestive heart failure diagnosed at 19 years of age. Maximal drug treatment/cardiac resynchronization failed to improve the cardiac function. He was therefore hospitalized due to heart failure. Despite extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, he developed severe right heart dysfunction and died (multiple organ failure). A cardiac lesion's presence determines the...
