“Transmissible Vaccines” Could Be The Vaccine Technology Of The Future

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

The fight against deadly diseases has always been a tough one. While vaccines have been the gold standard in warding off threats like diphtheria, tetanus, and measles, ensuring everyone gets a dose is no small feat. The answer to this might lie in an audacious new approach: transmissible vaccines.

It’s like using fire to combat fire – but can we control it?

When a large portion of a community gets vaccinated, we achieve herd immunity. However, ensuring global vaccination, especially in areas with inadequate health facilities, is an uphill task.

Hair straightening chemicals associated with higher uterine cancer risk

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, health

NIH study finds Black women may be more affected due to higher use.

Women who used chemical hair straightening products were at higher risk for uterine cancer compared to women who did not report using these products, according to a new study from the National Institutes of Health. The researchers found no associations with uterine cancer for other hair products that the women reported using, including hair dyes, bleach, highlights, or perms.

The study data includes 33,497 U.S. women ages 35–74 participating in the Sister Study, a study led by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of NIH, that seeks to identify risk factors for breast cancer and other health conditions. The women were followed for almost 11 years and during that time 378 uterine cancer cases were diagnosed.

Hospital bosses love AI. Doctors and nurses are worried

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, health, robotics/AI

Milekic’s morning could be an advertisement for the potential of AI to transform health care. Mount Sinai is among a group of elite hospitals pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into AI software and education, turning their institutions into laboratories for this technology. They’re buoyed by a growing body of scientific literature, such as a recent study finding AI readings of mammograms detected 20 percent more cases of breast cancer than radiologists — along with the conviction that AI is the future of medicine.

Researchers are also working to translate generative AI, which backs tools that can create words, sounds and text, into a hospital setting. Mount Sinai has deployed a group of… More.

The Epigenetic Impact of Cannabis Use During Pregnancy on Child’s Health

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, genetics, health, neuroscience

Specifically, the researchers examined how THC administered through edibles, a common consumption method, influenced epigenetic changes in crucial areas for fetal development, including the placenta, fetal lung, brain, and heart.

In recent years, the popularity and availability of cannabis has grown significantly, with various consumption methods like edibles gaining traction. However, alongside this trend, there has been a worrisome increase in cannabis use among pregnant women. Unfortunately, our understanding of the detailed effects of using cannabis during pregnancy on the developing child remains limited. Because normal fetal development relies on the crucial process of epigenetic regulation and gene expression modification, it has been suggested that studying the molecular changes linked to cannabis exposure during pregnancy could provide important insights.

To gain a better understanding of the effects of cannabis use during pregnancy, researchers from the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) conducted a unique preclinical study that focused on investigating the epigenetic impact of THC, the main active component in cannabis, on fetal development and future health outcomes. The study’s findings were published in the journal Clinical Epigenetics.

Septuagenarian billionaire twins from Germany are quietly remaking the world of health care—and it all started with a vaccine

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, finance, health

The Struengmann brothers’ agreement Monday to lead the purchase of a hand-sanitizer maker owned by EQT AB alongside other investors marks at least the sixth major deal involving the billionaire twins and the Swedish private equity firm within the past decade, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The deal for EQT’s Schuelke & Mayr GmbH values the Norderstedt, Germany-based company at about €1.4 billion ($1.5 billion), people with knowledge of the matter have said, asking not to be identified discussing confidential information. Financial details weren’t disclosed. The sale is expected to close in the final quarter of 2023, according to a news release Monday.

A representative for the Struengmanns didn’t respond to a request for comment. The 73-year-old brothers are together worth about $24 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
