Medical research involves a wide range of areas such as biology, chemistry, medicine and toxicology, to develop a new drug or medical process and to improve the existing implementation. It can be considered to include Preclinical research (e.g cellular animal models and systems) and clinical research (eg. Clinical trials).Research scientists round the world are working on new medical treatments which will improve a lot of lives
Here is a list of Top 5 Most Popular Medical Research of 2017
5. Anti-Aging Medicine
A study published in BMC Cell Biology shows that the old chemicals can be rejuvenated – a substance that is in the dark chocolate and red wine – resveratrol like. The substance not only made the old cells appear younger, but it also caused them to divide again like young cells.
In July, Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City aid workers and experts have been working on a team that stem cells in a region of the brain may play a large role in the rapid aging of the hypothalamus.
The brain stem cells to affect the speed of the aging process. A group of researchers found that by adding a fresh supply of stem cells to the hypothalami of mice, the aging process was reversed.
4. Alzheimer’s disease
Swiss and British scientists have developed a vaccine ,That may prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
In the rat model of Alzheimer’s disease, the vaccine is increased muscle relaxation, as it is believed that protects against neurological diseases.
Journal Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology had published that extra virgin olive oil can protect areas of the brain of Alzheimer’s disease caused by the powers of the places, and for the promotion of communication, so as to cover, among the instigators of the neurons in the increasing the autophagy activation of nerve cells in brain tissue.
The work of this group of green tea, strawberries and olive oil extra virgin in the battle against Alzheimer’s have been considered.
In the case of composite berries – called fisetin – can prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s associated with aging, some stress, inflammation and cognitive decline.
3. Regenerating body parts
Regenerative Medicine – a branch of science that works to find ways to re-grow or replace damaged tissues and organs – took a big leap forward in 2017, when researchers from Ohio State University announced the development of a new technology-tissue nanotransfection. TNT technology, built in a small piece, can reprogram your skin cells to repair organs and blood vessels. With certain types of DNA.In the non-invasive procedure, a postage stamp sized stamp is applied to the skin and a small electrical current is passed through the skin. The process delivers DNA vectors into the body in less than a second. So far, research has focused only on animals, growing blood vessels in damaged muscles for a week, and creating nerve cells that help the mice suffer a stroke. Clinical trials on humans are expected to begin in 2018.
2. Breakthrough in the Treatment Of hepatitis C
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on 03/08/2017 approved the first ever hepatitis C medication i.e Mavyret (glecaprevir and pibrentasvir) to treat All Major Strain Of hepatitis C without cirrhosis} (liver disease) or with mild liver disease, as well as patients with moderate to severe renal disorder and people who are on dialysis.
The Food and Drug Administration granted approval of Mavyret to AbbVie INC.Mavyret joins a couple of different AbbVie hepatitis C medications, one from Merck & Co. and 4 from Gilead Sciences inc. on the market. that offers doctors and patients additional choices, and insurers more leverage to wring discounts out of corporations to cover the pricey medication.
Mavyret is the only 8-week length treatment approved for all hepatitis C genotypes, traditional treatment length was previously twelve weeks or more.
1. Break Through In Cancer Research:
Scientists are frequently studying the most effective ways to exterminate cancer cells, and a handful of groundbreaking ways have entered the spotlight in the past twelve months. two of those ways trigger a response from the body’s immune system to fight cancer.
One surprising finding this year was the news that vitamin C is up to 10 times more effective than experimental medication at preventing the formation of cancer stem cells.
The journal Science translational Medicine published research demonstrating that poliovirus kills cancer cells and inhibits tumor regrowth.
Another cancer-killing technique heralded as more effective than convention cancer therapies may be a method known as caspase-independent cell death (CICD).
When cancer cells die from CICD, the immune system can swoop in to destroy any remaining ones that managed to evade CICD. when this technique was tested in the laboratory on colorectal cancertumors, the majority cancer cells were killed.
