Using Pig Organs in Humans, an Innovation to Solve the Organ Shortage

The U.S. has 114,000 sick patients on its organ transplant list. However, according the United Network for Organ Sharing, every year almost 8000 people die waiting for the organs. There are positive developments taking place, such as start-ups building machines to keep the donor’s organs alive till the surgery is done. This will improve the organ’s count and lessen its death until the transplant happens. Another invention where researchers are

Now Keeping Track of Blood Flow in Artery is Easier

It is often difficult to track the first sign of surgery success on veins. Before anyone could know, patient might undergo for a second surgery, with risks similar to the one in the first surgery. To overcome this risk, a team of Stanford scientists has invented a biodegradable wireless battery-free sensor. This device will help keep track of the flow of blood in an artery. Moreover, it will assist doctors

Urine Drug Testing to help in Early Stage of Opioid Use Treatment

Opioid use disorders have assumed epidemic proportions, especially in developed countries such as the U.S. Success in treatment and prevention in primary care settings, such as in office-based interventions, are beset with the lack of truthful self-reporting substance use. And there can be several reasons for this ranging from the fear of early discharge from the program and marked embarrassment of relapse they may face among peers. This may result

Researchers Develop New Class of Multi-functional Polymers

A group of researchers at the Imperial College, London, have fabricated a new multi-functional polymer having an impressive molecular precision. The sequence-defined new class of polymer could open up new opportunities in areas such as nanotechnology, drug delivery, and information storage. The researchers have used a new way of synthesis, called Nanostar Sieving, which is a combination of liquid-phase synthesis and molecular sieving. The new method enables researchers to completely

Artificial Disc Market by Application, Trends and Growth Rate to 2025

Artificial disc replacement is an emerging procedure that replaces the function of a damaged or diseased spinal disc. It is as an alternative to spinal fusion for the surgical treatment of severe disc problems. Herniated disc, bone spurs, spondylosis, or radiculopathy are to relieve pinched nerves causing pain that has been unrelieved by conservative measures. Spinal columns are replaced with artificial devices in the lumbar (lower) or cervical (upper) spine.

Pharyngitis Treatment Market Poised to Garner Maximum Revenues by 2025

Global Pharyngitis Treatment Market: Overview Pharyngitis is the medical condition that causes inflammation at the back of the throat which is known as pharynx. Pharyngitis is referred simply as sore throat. Pharyngitis may also lead to itchiness and difficulty in swallowing. There are several viral and bacterial agents that causes pharyngitis, majority of which includes measles, adenovirus, chickenpox, croup, whooping cough, and group A streptococcus. Pharyngitis is most commonly caused

Pernicious Anemia Treatment Market Size Estimated to Observe Significant Growth by 2025

Anemia is a condition where blood is deficient in red blood cells (RBCs). Pernicious anemia occurs when the body’s capacity to absorb vitamin B12, which is required to make healthy red blood cells, is reduced. It is a rare condition. As per the Journal of Blood Medicine, the prevalence of pernicious anemia is about 0.1% in the normal population, while in aged people (people over 60 years) the prevalence is

Cervical Cerclage Market to Observe Strong Development by 2025

During pregnancy, the baby exerts pressure on the uterus which can cause the cervix to start dilating before the baby is ready for delivery. This could cause premature birth. This anomaly is known as incompetent cervix or cervical insufficiency. Cervical cerclage is a surgical procedure, wherein a suture is placed around the cervix to remedy an incompetent cervix or cervical insufficiency. The procedure involves stitching a band of strong thread

Airway Clearance Devices Market to Develop Rapidly by 2025

Airway clearance techniques (ACTs) help clear thick mucus by coughing or huffing. This process of clearing the airway helps reduce chances of lung infections and improves lung functions. The airway can be cleared using devices. These devices are primarily required in the case of diseases such as cystic fibrosis, chronic diffuse bronchiectasis, neuromuscular diseases and immotile ciliary dysfunction/primary ciliary dyskinesia. Read Report Overview: Rising incidences of respiratory diseases such as

Upstream Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Process Market is Driven by Increase in Awareness About Application of Upstream Process in Cell Therapy

Bioprocessing, commonly known as biopharmaceutical manufacturing, falls under bioprocess engineering used in the cultivation of therapeutic cells. The end products of bioprocessing are high value products and used to work on specific target. Two types of processes are used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing: upstream biopharmaceutical manufacturing and downstream biopharmaceutical manufacturing. The steps involved in upstream biopharmaceutical manufacturing process are development of media, cell culture, harvesting of cells, and fermentation. The biopharmaceutical
