Pandemic Fallout

In December 2019, Covid-19 took the world by storm as it rampaged across the earth. Originating from Wuhan, China, the virus damaged life as we knew it. It hindered the economy across all sectors, notably the medical field, from supply shortages to patient care quality declining. The pandemic fallout centered mainly around the medical sector […]

Healthcare Alternative Systems

The COVID-19 pandemic gave the world a lot to think about. The world stopped in its tracks. Everything halted. People remained at home, trying to stay safe. While the world bunkered down, one sector was busier than ever. The healthcare sector did not have the option of stopping everything to process the pandemic. Humanity needed […]

Process Analytical Technology

Process analytical technology initiative was created in 2004 by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), aiming to decrease public health risks associated with manufacturing pharmaceutical products. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the pharmaceutical industry has seen immense demand, leading to unprecedented production. A better understanding of the production process at every level proved necessary to achieve […]

Have the Clone Wars Begun? The World's First Synthetic Embryo

Using only stem cells and a specialized incubator, researchers have reportedly created a synthetic embryo of a mouse in the lab for the first time ever without the need for fertilized eggs, embryos, or even a mouse. This accomplishment, which was made by a team led by scientists from Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science and published in the […]

early Alzheimer's detection

A research team at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum has reportedly developed a novel new sensor that allows early Alzheimer’s detection, the key to treating the neurodegenerative disease. The results of the study have been published in the journal Alzheimer’s Association. According to a statement by the researchers, early detection can be done as early as  17 […]

molecule imaging technique

Researchers have created a novel molecule imaging technique for seeing mRNA molecules in live mouse brains. The study offers a fresh understanding of how memories are created and retained in the brain and may one day help researchers better understand conditions like Alzheimer’s. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of […]

Wearable technology has become an essential component of our daily life, especially for chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Driven by advances in communications and computing and improved sensor accuracy, smartwatches have become real diagnostic tools capable of measuring vital signs while providing insights into our medical conditions. Efficiently measuring blood pressure with clinically […]

The medical field has been benefiting a lot from technological advancements. The diagnostic, monitoring, and treatment tools have been getting smaller in size with ubiquitous usage capabilities and smarter decision-making. Ultrasound technology uses sound frequencies outside the human audible band, that is, above 20 kilohertz.  These safe waves are reflected from body structures, and processed […]
